GARDEN CITY, Utah — There's no photographic proof, but some say it looks like a walrus minus the tusks. Something to talk a boat: A supposed monster has been talked about, debated and scouted since its first reported sighting in 1868. Others are adamant it's a dinosaur. Or a big alligator that swims really fast. But while the existence of the Bear Lake Monster has been debated at coffee shops and campfires since the first published report in 1868, this much is undisputed: Stories about the monster can make cash registers sing at stores ringing the lake on the Idaho-Utah border.
