Artist's rendering. This one doesn't have horns for some reason.

Dingbat is a fearsome critter from the tales of lumberjacks of North America from the 19th and early 20th centuries, particularly in the area of Salt Lake, Wisconsin. It is described as both an avian and mammalian creature, with a short feathered body, large wings and short antlers on its head.

The Dingbat had the unique ability to eat bullets in midair, and was known for pranking hunters by drinking gasoline out of their cars and stealing their ammunition. It is also described as resembling a very fast owl.
