What is swimming in the river in Saskatoon?
Mystery object filmed by onlookers
A passerby filmed a strange object swimming in Saskatoon's river today.
At around 9:15 CST, a woman recorded a strange object that looks like it's swimming.
A long tail trailed behind what looked like a giant fish swimming upstream.
The body of the 'object' appeared to be five or six feet in length.
CBC's Dan Zakreski went down to the South Saskatchewan River to see for himself.
The object looks less like a river monster and more like a piece of trash.
Take a look at the optical illusion.
The Saskatoon Fire Department's water rescue crew stopped to examine the object.
It turned out to be a block of ice frozen to a rope.
Here's a clearer picture of what the river monster looks like.
