The Hodag, a fictitious creature from Northern Wisconsin, was invented in 1883 by a land surveyor, Eugene Shepard. Capturing this ferocious beast was a way to prove the strength of the north woods to the world.

Shepard debuted the Hodag at a county fair where a life-like Hodag puppet was caged and would act aggressive when viewers approached it. The hoax was exposed when the Smithsonian announced they would inspect the discovery.
