Loch Ness in Chippewa River

The Loch Ness monster has taken a getaway, and what a better place than Wisconsin – and state officials need the very legendary monster to leave.

Department of Natural Resources spokesman Dan Baumann says a sculpture of Nessie is illegally obstructing and protruding out of the Chippewa River in Eau Claire and needs to be taken out by the very person who placed it there.

The sculpture's creator remains a mystery, although a person who anonymously emailed the Eau Claire Leader-Telegram on Thursday said it would be taken out inside 10 days.

Retailer Menards says it would like to acquire the guerrilla art and that the monster could make her home in retention ponds at the home improvement chain's Eau Claire property.

The Loch Ness monster was initially "spotted" at Loch Ness, a waterway some 15 kilometres south of Inverness, Scotland, in 1933.
