Back in 2012, Anomalist Books published a book from me titled Monster Diary, which was a collection of road-trips I had been on in search of weird creatures.
One chapter focused on claims that massive eels lurked in the waters of the canals of Birmingham, England.
Some of the claims suggested eels of 15-feet long or more, which is not just controversial, but beyond controversial!
Such stories continue to reach me. And, while I was in the UK last week, this story surfaced, showing that there may be more to all this than just urban legend.
