December 2, 2012 - The Goat man is a hominid cryptid most commonly associated with Louisiana, Maryland and Texas. It is described as a hybrid creature; part man and part goat. Some claim it is a relative of the New Orleans evil cupacabra like cryptid the Grunch. The urban legends of them often tells of it killing young lusting couples in parked cars or scouring neighborhoods killing family pets. There are also tales of them breaking into peoples houses and usually the raping of it's victims. And many attest from the areas that he haunts, it does not matter if your a man or woman he will overtake you and have sex with you none the less, writes Damien Jennings, for Haunted American Tours.
The goat man is a bipedal humanoid resembling the faun or satyr of ancient mythology. He has the lower body of a goat and the upper body of a man with ram's horns growing out of his head. The creature's size varies from one report to the next, ranging from 4' tall up to as large as 12', with most between 6 and 8 feet tall. Most goat men are reported to make high-pitched squealing noises when agitated. Goat men have also been reported in Alabama, Arkansas, California, Florida, Indiana, Louisiana, and Michigan
According to Erin Early , author of http://www.othersidesociety.com/, the Pope Lick goat man is an urban legend of sorts centered around a railroad trestle in eastern Jefferson County, Kentucky, just outside of Louisville. Legend holds that the goat man, a predictably half-man, half-goat monster, haunts the area around the trestle. Sightings of the monster originated in the late 1940′s or early 1950′s, and most who claim to have seen the goat man describe it as having the fur-covered body of a man, but the head of a goat.
While Bigfoot is currently the best known "wild man", goat men have been reported in various parts of the country (primarily the southeast- Virginia and North Carolina, for instance) for decades. Certainly there are similarities between the Pope Lick goat man and other, better known beasts, such as the Jersey Devil of the New Jersey Pine Barrens.
