Not like this. Not this way. The Loch Ness Monster might well be dead, people.

Fans (and he/she has many) fear their favorite blurry monster may have kicked the watery bucket.

With only one decent sighting in Loch Ness last year, a documentary has been made that explores the possibility that the monster might be sleeping with the fishes more than just eight hours a night. We're talking permanently.

The Official Loch Ness Monster Fan Club president, Gary Campbell, said sightings were becoming increasingly rare. "We were so relieved to have heard about one sighting," he said, hopefully with his closest friends and family nearby. "When it was reported, nobody had seen anything for a year. If it hadn't been for that one, we would have been really, really worried." Us too.

"Ten years ago, we had a lot of good sightings but in the last two or three years, they have trailed off."

That's enough for us. We're confident Nessie has gone to the great, shaky-camera place in the sky. So, grab a hanky and keep reading to check out the beast's greatest hits.

The Loch Ness Monster -- A Tribute (565 A.D. to 2009)

Best official sighting of the beast.

Nessie, during happier times.

A fitting collage to the necky enigma. This is powerful stuff.

There he is again, definitely.

One of his last public appearances.

And finally, is this the corpse of the deceased beast? Some viewers may find this footage upsetting (jump to 50 seconds).
