Do you believe there could be a prehistoric creature in a Wyoming lake?

In northeastern Wyoming, there is a legend of a prehistoric creature living in Lake De Smet that they've named 'Smetty.'

Wyoming's own Loch Ness Monster is said to have once lived, or is still living, in Lake De Smet located in Johnson County just north of Buffalo. Early settlers and Native Americans both told the tale of the monster under the waters f the lake.

Edward Gillette wrote about just missing the creature in 1925 in his book Locating the Iron Trail.
