Hunting a 400 mythical creature is now ok!

The swedes are crazy people. God bless them for it. A mythical monster, believed by some to have lived for hundreds of years in the murky depths of a Swedish lake, is now fair game for hunters - if they can find it. Authorities have agreed to lift its endangered species protection. Hundreds of people claim to have spotted a large serpent-like creature in Lake Storsjon in the northwestern province of Jamtland, and in 1986 the regional council put it on a list of endangered animals. But a government watchdog challenged the decision, saying such protection was hardly necessary for a creature whose existence has not been proven. The regional council agreed to remove the listing this month, but declined to rule out that a monster lives in the 300-foot deep lake. "It exists, inasmuch as it lives in the minds of people," the council's chief legal adviser Peter Lif said about the purported beast. "But I guess we'll have to agree that it cannot be proved scientifically, and then it should not be listed as an endangered species." Happy hunting Lars!
