Siberian Lake Monster

This report comes from a remote Siberian village via Tass. So, make of it what you will! It concerns a giant green snake with a sheeplike head seen patrolling a lake near Sharipovo. Tass said:

"Dozens of people have seen this green monster, which has the girth of a large tree trunk and is around 6 or 7 yards long. One of them even managed to take a photograph of it. It swims along with its head held high in the air."

The creature makes tracks in the grass along the shoreline resembling those from the runners of a large sleigh. (Anonymous; "Snake with Sheep Head Is Spotted in a Lake," Baltimore Sun, p. 5A, November 21, 1991.)
