Bow Tie Guy of the Day: Tarasque
A tarasque is a creature that hails from Southern France. It is described as being dragon like, with a lion's head, six short legs and a turtle shell. In legend it destroyed the landscape. The king attacked it with all he could but it had no effect on the beast. Finally Saint Martha tamed the creature with hymns and prayers. She brought it to the town where they attacked the beast and killed it because it would not fight back.
