Charlie Sheen Gives Up on Loch Ness Hunting, Turns Focus to Alaska’s Otter Man

Charlie Sheen may have given up tiger blood, fighting with executives, and doing an obscene amount of hard drugs, but his need for adrenaline-pumping and absurd activities seems to be at it’s peak.

Last month, Sheen flew to Scotland to hunt for the Loch Ness Monster. He obviously failed at this impromptu mission, but his interest in capturing mythical creatures has only just begun.

According to TMZ, Sheen flew to Sitka, Alaska on his private jet last week in hopes of tracking down Kushtaka aka “Water Devil”, an elusive half-man half-otter that is part of Southeastern Alaskan native mythology.

It's "a shape-shifting trickster who is half man, half otter. It lures one away from the campsite with the mimicked sounds of a crying baby, then kills you, takes on YOUR form, and returns to the scene for more suckers or prey," Sheen explained.

Sheen apparently went deep into the wilderness with a few friends to search of the creature, but failed yet again.

"It obviously knew our group was far too skilled to be snowed in this fashion so it stayed hidden like a sissy," Sheen told TMZ.

Stay tuned for updates next month when Sheen searches for unicorns and Santa Claus in the North Pole.
