Lake Winnipegosis Sea Monster Winnepogo -
Is it Real ? A Cousin of Manipogo ? Or Manipogo Itself ?
Lake Winnipegosis is a sister lake of Lake Manitoba. Lake Winnipegosis also lies in the Canadian province of Manitoba being situated north of Lake Manitoba. Its coordinates are 52°30′N, 100°00′W . 320 km north of the city of Winnipeg. Its size is 5370 square kilometers being actually larger than the 4624 square kilometer areas of Lake Manitoba itself. This is as a result of a much larger watershed area if Lake Winnipegosis – all the way into Northern Manitoba , including Nelson River and Hudson’s Bay as well as Saskatchewan watersheds.
Since Lake Winnipegosis is part of the 3 historic vestiges of the large glacial lake Agassiz , along with Lake Manitoba , as well drains into Lake Manitoba it would not be unreasonable that members or even families if the sea lake serpent monster Manipogo would exist , commuted or even have originated in Lake Winnipegosis.
Indeed during the initial development if the area in the early 1900’s and before the second world war there were several recorded reputable sightings of Manipogo or Manipogo like creatures in Lake Winnipegosis by more than reputable observers.
In 1909, Valintine Mackay saw a “huge creature traveling at a speed of about two miles per hour.” It had part of its back projected vertically about four feet.
Timber Inspector, C. F. Ross and a friend saw the creature in 1935. On it’s head was a single horn and its head was small and flat. To them look very much like a dinosaur.
The sea serpent monster of Lake Winnipegosis although very similar anatomically and geographically to Lake Manitoba Manipogo is referred and listed as Winnepogo even though it may be an identical species or even the same group or even the exact same animals navigating themselves among the lake channels and basins
