Bigfoot has been hogging the spotlight of late, leading to a sad neglect of other cryptids we should be searching for, including the goat man, who has been spotted in various locales across the United States. Before It’s News explains:
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. The urban legends often tell of it killing young lusting couples in parked cars or scouring neighborhoods killing family pets. There are also tales of them breaking into people’s houses and usually the raping of its victims. 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.
Numerous sightings in July 1969 led to the belief of a half-man, half-goat creature living in Lake Worth in Texas.
