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.

Description

The Dingbat is described as a large bat-like creature, with a short feathered body, large wings and short deer-like antlers on its head.

The Dingbat had the unique ability to eat bullets in mid-air, 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.
