But could you imagine if something like that had existed in Georgia back then? Or, better yet, what if one was still around right now? Yeah, I'm never going into the woods again....

Also, I found this artist interpretation of the Wog:


North Georgia Legend: Nodoroc and the Wog

This is a curious local legend from the early days of Jackson County. The area where most of this happened is now a part of Barrow County, but the existing account of the creature comes from a book on Jackson County history.
