Legendary Hodag makes TV debut
Rhinelander's mystical Hodag will be featured in a TV cartoon next month. The Hodag and the man who discovered it will be portrayed in an episode of "Scooby Doo, Mystery Incorporated" Aug. 3 on Cartoon Network.
The Hodag is a fanged reptilian creature said to enjoy eating dogs. Wisconsin logger Eugene Shepard said he discovered the Hodag in 1893. He'll portray an entertainer on the cartoon who travels with a curio wagon and a stuffed Hodag.
