Well, not exactly. Some think it would have to be a damn huge dog.
Science has laid to rest a popular and interesting theory. DNA testing has shown an attack on a family van some blamed on the legendary Lizard Man appears to have been actually done by a domestic dog. Take that! Something chewed up the front fender of Bob and Dixie Rawson’s van in February. Bite marks were left on the wheel wells and blood was found on the vehicle.
This had raised a lot of speculation in the media about who could have been behind these attacks.
The Item of Sumter reported that a veterinary lab in California tested the blood and found it came from a dog. What else were the people thinking! Some secret military research zombie escaped alive from the lab?!!
But there are still some skeptics, like for instance Bob Rawson who still isn’t sure. He says it would have to be one big dog.
Lee County Sheriff E.J. Melvin isn’t convinced either. He thinks it was a coyote or wolf. But what difference does it make!
Lizard Man became a phenomenon in the area 20 years ago when people began reporting a tall, big-eyed swamp creature. Authorities never figured out exactly what prompted the sightings.
