I believe he exists because I've seen him and I'll share my story here.
Friday, December 19, 1997. It was the premier of Titanic and I had tickets for my high school sweetheart and I to go. Our plan was the normal same ol
same ol. Go to a movie, leave early, and go have our fun before I had to drop her off at her curfew. It was easy to find an entrance driveway to a
field on a back road on the outskirts of the small town we lived in but sometimes on the weekends there would be a few cars driving by and we didn't
want to get caught so we'd head over to an overgrown cemetery nestled into the dense woods that was no longer used. The gate always stayed open and
it was easy access on a dark road that only had one small travel trailer that someone lived in, roughly 3 miles away. Being 18 and a bit disrespectful
in a sense, I'd toss my protection out of the window and onto the ground when I was done. This had been going on for about 3 or 4 months.
Lately, my GF had been having nightmares about a figure of a man with a goat's head. She said he'd chase her and as soon as he'd reach out to grab
her, she would wake up. When I picked her up for school that morning, she looked pale and I asked what was wrong. She had that dream again she said.
But this time she said the goatman got her. She pulled up her pants leg and showed me for scratch marks. I dismissed the marks and said that since she
had a kitten, the kitten probably saw her leg moving during her dream and scratched her. However, this looked NOTHING like a cat scratch, especially a
little kitten. It actually looked demonic like something you'd see in today's movies.
Around 6 that evening, I was getting ready to go pick her up for our movie date to Titanic. I started getting an eerie gut feeling. Before I left, my
sister told me she had a nasty feeling about tonight so she asked me to be very careful. Well I got my GF and we made it to the Regal Cinema. If
you've ever seen Titanic, you'll remember the scene where DiCaprio was in that old car with Winslet. That was the scene where we left Shreveport and
headed to our little spot. It was about 30 minutes away. The closer I got to that cemetery, the worse my gut feeling got.
I can't tell you if it was my GF's dream, the scratches I saw on her leg that morning, my gut feeling, or my sister's gut feeling, but something
had me wanting to turn around the closer I got to this place. Well this was it. I turned on Harold-Montgomery Road and I rounded the curve about 50
yards from the cemetery and I see someone standing at the entrance. CRAP! Someone knows we've been coming here and they're waiting on us. There was
no way to know it was me going there, but my guilt had me feeling like they knew it was me. I start to slow down just a little bit and my GF says "Is
that someone standing at the gate?" Yes. Someone is there at the gate.
As we get closer, I can see that this isn't a man, and I'm not the only one that can see that this isn't a man. Beside me, I can see my GF out of
my peripheral leaning forward and looking harder, slowing saying what......... in........ the............ hell.....? That's when I get close enough
to make out what I see. A man's body, hooved feet, spiral horns and goat's face. Not like you see in the movies or images that are drawn out on the
internet. The horns were more like gazelle horns. Very muscular body, but not wielding any type of weapon. Just standing there, daring me to stop. I
can remember his solid black eyes and his head turning to keep a look on me as I drove by. At the same time I noticed what this was, my GF began
screaming "OMG! GO GO GO!!!" I began driving as fast as I could, hitting the potholes and breaking hard for the tight curves, not wanting to look in
my rearview mirror.
I don't do drugs, never did, and I wasn't drinking that night. We were both as sober as one can be, and we both saw the exact same thing. 11 years
later when the story was mentioned again, I decided to Google the goatman. That's when I read that in the legends, he preys on young lovers in the
woods. I immediately got chills down my spine, and still do as I tell this story. I don't have a link to back any of this up, but I do have a memory
that makes this all feel like it was just yesterday.
If you've ever seen something similar, please share. My friend got a kick out of his friends claiming they saw a goatman figure in the woods back in
2011. When I told him my story, he didn't laugh at them anymore. So obviously it has been spotted at least three times in the area where I'm at.
