Don’t you just love it when some mysterious animal is inflated to mythic proportions and is credited with terrorizing small villages? Is it human neuroses or just our need to have big bad wolf in the story to make it worth telling? The latest in animal terror comes to us by way of Kashmir, where panic has broken out over a “dragon” sighting. I suppose turning a monitor lizard into a dragon is on par with bears becoming Big Foot. Let’s hope the lizard manages to sneak away and avoid the consequences that always seem follow when something strikes fear into the heart of men.
