Case File #2: Land of the Lake Monsters

May 30, 2018

It's time to dive once more into The Spoop Files! This week, Alex and Myia look below the placid surface of some Canadian lakes on the hunt for some of Canada's most famous Lake Monsters! Will they find what they're looking for, or will they be left up the creek without a paddle?
