Post-Apocalyptic English Bestiary: The Great Sea-Stag

So I've been spending a lot of time lately with James Raggi's Random Esoteric Creature Generator, rolling up monsters for the Once-Green and Pleasant Land setting as I get closer to being ready to start running adventures in it.  Here's one that I don't see myself using any time soon so it's worth using as a teaser:

The Great Sea-Stag
 # Appearing: 1
Armor Class: 14
Hit Dice: 11
Movement: 130 (Swimming)
Size: Huge
Attacks: 1 (Gore With Antlers)
 Damage: 1d12
Special Ability: Spell Use - Wizard Spells
XP: 1750
Conflict Motivation: Hunger
Combat Strategy: Random

The Great Sea-Stag patrols up and down the Dover coast of England, an enormous and savagely hungry beast, the size of an elephant, with a long neck and four paddle-like flippers - resembling the Plesiosaurus of Earth's prehistoric past.  It's short-snouted, bulging-eyed head is flanked by large, flapping gills and topped by a pair of 8-point antlers of twisted, gnarled bone.

More disconcertingly, the Great Sea-Stag can cast a small number of arcane spells to aid it in collecting human prey.  It has been observed casting Charm Person, Sleep, and Web.  It may know other spells besides.
