Chapter 110 of The Lake Demon


Chapter One Hundred Ten:
The phone in Sheriff George Anderson’s office rang loudly. George picked it up to answer the call.
“Hello, Sheriff’s office. How can I help you?”
“Hi George. It’s Bobby O’Conner from the Kelowna Sun.”
“What can I do for you Bobby?” asked the sheriff.
“I just called to give you guys a head’s up. I got a phone call from a woman telling me that her group is planning a big demonstration for this afternoon at 2:00 PM.”
“So did she say what they would be demonstrating against?” asked George.
“Yes, their group is called Save Ogopogo. They are protesting against all the people who are on the lake hunting for Ogopogo. The group wants all these weekend warriors off the lake. She sounded very concerned because many of the would- be hunters are packing pistols, rifles, harpoons and any other weapon they can get their hands on. Some crews are bringing along large nets and iron cages in hopes of capturing Ogopogo alive.”
“Yeah, we’ve been getting a ton of complaints here at the sheriff’s office. The phones have ringing off the hooks,” said George.
“What I’m really concerned about is the hunters finding out about this demonstration. If they catch wind of this, and they very likely will, there is the potential for a show down and possible violence,” said Bobby.
“You are probably right Bobby. This scenario could very well play out,” said George.
“The woman told me that she has already contacted the local radio stations, t.v. stations and other media outlooks. I know that she’s telling the truth because I have been checking the local blog sites and there are a lot of posts both for and against the Save Ogopogo campaign. I’ll be going to see the demonstration because I have to report what goes down for the newspaper. I just wanted to pass the tip onto the Sheriff’s Office because I don’t want to see anyone get hurt,” said Bobby.
