"Lizard Man" returns to haunt South Carolina

A mysterious creature is being blamed for a series of car bumper vandalisms in the United States.
The so-called "Lizard Man" is a legend that hasn't been seen or heard from in over 20 years and with history repeating itself this new wave of sightings has again begun with the damaging of vehicles and strange noises being heard outside in the early hours of the morning. But is there really a cryptozoological mystery at work here or could there be a more conventional explanation ?
According to local channel 19 in Lee County, SC, the legendary lizard creature made a return after a 23-year hiatus, and he's up to his old tricks. Witnesses on a rural road in the county are saying they heard a strange noise on the morning of July 4th and went outside to investigate.

You idiots should check storys from back in 1987-8 before making all your stupid remarks. It was on cable news. Several eye witnesses described this "lizard man" from close encounters, including chaseing a car at 30 miles an hour and pulling the rear bumper off the car. It was on the National News. Out of all the cryptids out there that might have some validity to them, you choose this one to defend? So you're saying the people in this thread are idiots because they question the credibility of a town who exploits alleged sightings of a 7 foot tall humanoid lizard for tourism? I'll take my chan...

I am from SC. I use to go from Columbia down to kingsbay GA all the time when I was stationed there about a year ago. Every two months I would make the trip. There are miles and miles and miles of swamp out there. Its real dark on the roads out there too... Not a good spot to want to break down. Every now and then I would go through Bishopville to get gas, some smokes, and other ****. Sometimes I would stop to grab something to eat and people would always ask me if Iv seen the lizard man. No I have never seen him but the local population has informed me a great deal about him/it/her/himher or ... [More]

It is a fact that Reptilians did in fact once existed. The ancient civilizations made statues and figurines resembling reptilian humanoid looking beings.

The Lizard Man reminds me of Stephen King's IT The Lizard Man appeared in the eighties then left and now sightings are starting up again with similar car damages and noises that no known animal could make a canine could damage the weakest points of a car like scratches and very minor punctures but that would break its canine teeth and an animal would not do that so it has do be something with huge bite force so i believe the lizard man is back
