The world-famous Jackalope was created in Douglas, Wyoming.

But don't tell anyone outside of Wyoming that it's a myth. That's the joke. It looks so real.

In the 1930s, Douglas Herrick and his brother, hunters with taxidermy skills, popularized the American jackalope by grafting deer antlers onto a jackrabbit carcass and selling the combination to a local hotel in Douglas, Wyoming.
