Scotland recently declassified documents realize how seriously the police took the existence of the Loch Ness monster, after several alleged sightings in the thirties.
The documents, held by National Archives of Scotland, shows that several ministers came to view the capture of the mythical creature, considered real even by the local police chief, said BBC correspondent Colin Blane in Scotland.
1938, the chief of police in Inverness-shire announced its desire to protect Nessie hunters who wanted to get him "dead or alive."
The legend of a Loch Ness monster covers more than 1,400 years, when he says that St. Columba encountered a strange beast ski. However, all picked up in the thirties, with the appearance of blurred photographs of the "monster" in the newspapers.
"To be or not to be"
In 1933, he was asked the Minister of Scotland to confirm the existence of a monster or water snake. The House of Commons whether the approach was in the interest of science, research should be funded.
Much of the press at the time derided the proposal.
Ministers and public employees were skeptical, but declassified documents show that observers are thought to park around the lake to photograph Nessie and shuffled forms of capture without damage.
But the story became world famous after a Scottish newspaper reported that the beast had been seen crossing the street.
In the end, seemed like a good thing not to kill the monster, much less a myth.
