Taniwha

Cape Kidnappers, New Zealand, 1979.
Some weird stuff happening. This is the last known sighting of the dreaded Taniwha of Cape Kidnappers that had terrorised the area for over 250 years. The first sighting by a European was by Captain James Cook himself in October 1769. However his account of the incident was suppressed by the Admiralty when it was realised that fear of the monster might jeopardise plans to establish a colony in Hawkes Bay.
