Discovery Channel Clarifies That They Did Not Actually Find A Mermaid

Posted Jul 16, 2012

The Discovery Channel recently aired a science fiction program on Animal Planet called Mermaids: The Body Found.  The Body Found was actually a fictional story that details the discovery of a mermaid body and it was filmed in a documentary style that was similar to “The Blair Witch Project.”  Many people watched the film and firmly believed that a mermaid body was actually found in real life.  Even though Mermaids: The Body Found said that it was science fiction and not fact, the film still claimed that it was “based on some real events.”  The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) released a statement to clarified that ?no evidence of aquatic humanoids has ever been found.?  Mermaids are not real, people.
