For the second time in just as many years, Rhinelander's Hodag is in the national spotlight.
Last summer, the Hodag was featured in an episode of “Scooby Doo”, and Thursday night it will the Travel Channel will feature it in their "Mysteries at the Museum".
The continued publicity for the mythical beast is something it's creator Gene Shepherd hoped for.
“The reason he made the Hodag is just for that reason. A promotion so that people would come to this area”, explained June Thiel, President of the Rhinelander Historical Society.
The episode airs at 8 p.m. Thursday, August 29 on the Travel Channel.
