What’s the Hodag?

In the heart of the Northwoods near Rhinelander, Wisconsin, lucky visitors may come across a mysterious, mischievous beast known as the Hodag. This legendary creature has roamed the Northwoods for more than a century and has become the official symbol of Rhinelander (while pulling a few pranks along the way).
