According to Canada’s National Post and Britain’s Sky News Israel has a mermaid and she is causing quite a stir. The reported half female human, half dolphin creature has been sighted by sources independent of each other off the coast of Kiryat Yam in the Haifa Bay. There is a $1 million reward for anyone who can offer solid proof (the creature in their arms?).
Locals and tourists who’ve ‘seen’ her say she’s friendly and likes to frolic, and they swear it is not a hoax. It’s been a boon for tourism apparently.
My guess is that the toxic pollution in the Haifa Bay – some of the worst in Israel – has created some mutant form of dolphin.
And hey, if you do manage to get proof of the creature, consider donating the prize booty to cleaning up the Bay.
