Conclusive proof of Peppi the Lake Pepin Monster has turned up, as evidenced by this Polaroid photo otaken by an anonymous shutterbug while viewing swans in the Maiden Rock area on November 25. The inset is a blownup, grainy closeup of the creature. The photo was forwarded to The Courier-Wedge by Jean S. Diplodocus, who heads ISENIT, an organization dedicated to substantiating claims that a reptilian-like beast lurks in the murky waters of Lake Pepin. Diplodocus said the photo presents “conclusive evidence” that Peppi indeed exists and seems to be a creature other than a large carp."
