What if they find Nessie?

What happens if someone catches the Loch Ness Monster?
A Scottish government-funded body has a plan in place if the Loch Ness Monster should ever be found.
Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) prepared the "partly serious, partly fun" code of practice in 2001 amid a period of intense interest in Nessie. This year's interest has been piqued by scientists gathering DNA from the loch, and Scotland's first minister saying she believes there is a monster.SNH said it would "dust off" the plan if Nessie was discovered.
