% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.
The odds are you’ve never heard of the Goatman before, also known as the Pope Lick Monster, but people actually do report seeing this urban legend from time to time. Half man, half-goat, this creature is one of the scariest monsters I’ve heard of. But what is it, and what’s the story behind it?


You may never have read about the Goatman before, but he’s one urban legend that demands a horror movie! American cryptid-spotters from all across the country – with hotspots in Kentucky, Texas and Wisconsin – report sightings of a horned man with the cloven hooves of an ungulate.

Cult of Weird describes a sighting from Louisville, KY where the Goatman is locally known as ‘The Pope Lick Monster’:

A large humanoid creature with furry, goat-like legs, alabaster skin, wide-set eyes, and horns that protrude from greasy fur. 

The Goatman story was also the subject of a popular Creepypasta from Anansi, which was in turn developed into a short film, Weirdo.
