EAU CLAIRE, Wis. -- The Loch Ness monster is on vacation in Wisconsin – and state officials want the legendary lady to leave.

Department of Natural Resources spokesman Dan Baumann says a sculpture of Nessie is illegally obstructing the Chippewa River in Eau Claire and must be removed by the person who placed it there.

Retailer Menards says it would like to acquire the guerrilla art and that the monster could make her home in retention ponds at the home improvement chain's Eau Claire property.

The Loch Ness monster was first "spotted" at Loch Ness, a waterway some 10 miles south of Inverness, Scotland, in 1933.
