Cryptozoologists may have to pour one out for their homie, The Loch Ness Monster, whose lack of reputable sightings is leading some experts to believe the Scottish dinosaur has gone the way of the, well, dinosaurs.

There was only one sighting in 2009 deemed worthy by the Official Loch Ness Monster Fan Club. "This was a local chap who knows the things that Nessie isn't - boat wakes, debris on the loch or seals in the summer," fan club president Gary Campbell told STV. "A local person will know what these things look like." How do they go about the painstaking scientific process of separating credible claims from crackpots? "What we regard as a dependable sighting is very much down to the person who sees it."

While the sole 2009 sighting keeps a glimmer of hope alive, no one seems to want to consider the startling fact that Nessie may not have even existed in the first place.
