A large predatory water serpent that was 30ft in length and inhabited the Lake of Lorette in south Canada. Its lair was behind a waterfall and waited for nearby villagers to come close to attack and devour them. In the 17th century the priest Jesuit went to the waterfall and chanted holy words to cause the creature to emerge. The priest then had the creature under control and the beast was captured, dragged through the town and then released in another lake, Lake Joseph.
