Man claims new footage proves existence of the Loch Ness Monster

A man has claimed that new footage proves the existence of the Loch Ness Monster. See if the below is enough to convince you:
Watching a webcam livestream of Loch Ness, Scotland, Eoin O’Faodhagain believes that the black shape he captured on the screen is enough to make even the most stubborn cynics believe in the mythical creature.
He said: “I noticed a splash and movement on the screen coming into view on the right, and a long black shape, and I immediately started a screen recording of this object.
“I got excited because it remained on the surface of the water, moving very slowly, unlike a large fish that would leap out of the water, but would then submerge.
“This object was no fish or a log for that matter – it was moving at a controlled speed, slow, unlike a log which would be moving with the current.”
The seasoned Nessie hunter has already racked up multiple entries in The Official Loch Ness Monster Sightings Register, and often logs into the webcam to keep an eye on the Scotland-based creature from the comfort of his home in County Donegal, Ireland.
However, the 58-year-old seems convinced that the images captured on Saturday might have finally closed the case for the infamous cryptid.
“I believe it is a live creature,” O’Faodhagain said.
“I believe in the Loch Ness Monster after witnessing a live sighting in July 1987.
“I think my video and photos on Saturday have proven the existence of the monster, and brought her from folklore to reality.”
The sighting was captured at Shoreland Lodges, near Fort Augustus on the loch’s southern shore, using a webcam maintained by Visit Inverness Loch Ness (VILN) officials.
The sighting lasted for approximately 10 minutes, and shows the dark shape move across the water.
The hospital clerk said: “There’s a tail in shaded grey, a black round curved hump in the centre, and what looks like a fin near the front of the creature.
“The head and neck are at an angle from the rest of the body, and there’s what looks like a long snout.
“One way to describe it is water-horse. I know that is the name of a film, but that is what it looks like.”
He continued: “I don't think there is anything that we know about today in the lakes and seas of the world that resembles that shape.
“One hypothesis for the existence of the Loch Ness Monster is that it is an unknown species.”
