You’ve heard of Nessie from Loch Ness and Champie from Lake Champlain, but have you heard of Peppy, the Lake Pepin monster? Yes, that’s right Peppy was first spotted in 1871. In 2008, an award was posted if anyone came forward with proof and the name Pepie was copyrighted. Although no proof was forthcoming (at least so far, right cryptozoologists?), the website behind it is still up.

An article from 2008 describes the idea behind the award and gives some modern accounts of 20th century sightings.
