Being 18 and seeing the unexplainable would normally garner the same attention from me as it would you, however, when my GF started screaming, I punched the gas because I knew she'd seen it too.


Another interesting fact that I just remembered while on this subject... My sister's friend's husband was telling us about a hairy figure he'd seen off of Maxwell Rd on a hunting lease in Haughton, La which is about 4 miles away from the place I saw this gaotman. He said it followed him and was roughly about 8 feet tall. This guy is one of those hardcore hunters that don't get scared of much, but he said he all but ran out of those woods. A couple years later, a guy I work with told me about those same woods off of Maxwell Rd when we'd gone back there for a frac job. On the coordinates map, type in the following coordinates, I've marked the split in the road. I can't remember if they went left or right, but it's also really close to a military base which could explain some things. The two guys I'm talking about didn't know each other but shared the same story.

We have a long "Goatman" history here Denton, Texas. Ours was created here so it is patently not a migrant. I've mentioned the story here on ATS before, but don't recall the thread.

A new road and bridge was built to bypass auto traffic off of Goatman's Bridge, which is still open to foot traffic of the brave today. A well known Black man affectionately known as Goatman, lived near theold bridge, accompanied by the fact he inded did exist and did sell goats. A sign with an arrow pointing to his home read only "Goatman". Hince " Goatman's Bridge" is a local landmark.

Stories vary at this point as to ifhe was accused of touching a whitegirl all the way to he did kill a whitegirl. What is ultimatly the prevailing theme, Goatman, in a time of racial turmoil, was tragically hung from the bridge's wrought iron beam, dying with his toes touching the water of the stream below.

It was likely that he could see and smell the flames burning his wife and children while he struggled for life dangling helplessly trying to block out their screams and the laughter and bigot spill of the cowards hiding behind white hoods that had just brought their own justice to an innocent man and his family. It was decided amongst the scoundrels to kindly retrieve his body from the noose as they didn't want to waste a good rope. Goatman had other plans, and with the help from Hell his body was nowhere to be found. Transformed and fueled by hatered, he still haunts the bridge today, seeking revenge for his beloved.

I have heard talk of a major movie, and you can hire out ghost hunters for trips there now. It is free to just explore the area on your own even at night if you are brave. Watch for his obligatory glowing red/yellow eyes.

Who knows maybe our Goatman has family in Shreveport!

I must admit when I read the headline I thought of this...



I will say though, that is a truly interesting experience that's for sure.

Uhhhh.... *shudders*

One thing I decided not to mention was that this was a graveyard for an old black church a few miles away. I figured throwing in that this was an old graveyard for a black church had no place or relevance in my story.

I've never been on reddit, and what I saw isn't made up. I can guarantee that.

There were stories for years of a goatman around Lake Worth in Fort Worth Texas during the 60's I think it was. Not good with coordinates here so what state or area were you in? Seems the one in FW chased some kJids but it's been a long time ago for me.

Interesting story esp with the girl friend and sister's experiences.

Just read a little further. Would be interesting to trace the dates/years of the sightings to see if there is a progression.

Northwest Louisiana. Koran and Haughton to be exact. Both are roughly 20 to 25 minutes east of Texas, and about 4 to 4 and a half hours from Fort Worth. Yeah I'd like to trace those dates too but the stories only mentioned the progression, or migration unfortunately.

Weird. I grew up in PG, Md, backing to deep woods that are now fully developed. I used to sneak out and run around in the woods at night as a preteen and make snarling demon noises and scare teenaged boys who were sneaking beers around small pit fires. There were probably a few urban legends told about ME, and nobody knew it was a smart aleck 12 year old girl pranking people!

I knew those woods very well and was small and agile with a big mouth so I could slip around among rabbits and possums and make ungodly noises I copied from raccoons. In my wandering, I never ran into anything other than rabbits, possums, and bugs. There weren't even any deer in those woods back in those days.

I've seen the grounds of the Agricultural Research Center where the goat man supposedly originated. It is a pretty area and looks a lot like the University of Maryland Campus. I never heard of goat man until the Internet. I was quite shocked to learn there was a cryptid right here in my old hometown and I'd never heard about it.

Where I last lived, I HAVE seen a shadow being outdoors that is roughly the size and shape of what you described. I could not seem to look directly at it. It was consistently able to move to just a bit past where my eyes were centering. I could not make out horns specifically, but I got the impression from its odd gait that it had legs sort of like a Pan type creature and had something coming off its head, perhaps like horns. I've been trying to figure out ever since if it was like a Pan or a Wendigo. I tend to go with the latter. And I mean in general overall shape. I don't think it was actually either of those.

Whatever it was, my dog saw it, too. I've talked about it before around here. Since it was just a very dense dark shape crossing the street lit night street of the cul de sac, I won't ever have as good an idea of what it looked like as what you saw. Whatever it was, my dog and I saw a smaller benign shadow being that ran between us before I looked up and saw the large one. The small one merely startled us and gave no aura. I know it passed because my dog reacted to it. The larger one threw off waves of pure animosity and evil. It seemed to be seeing me but not caring that I saw it. It went into a neighbor's yard and was gone. I got the impression it was incredibly tall for a humanoid. Probably about 8 feet.

I'd be inclined to dismiss my own sighting if seeing shadow beings indoors and outdoors hadn't been a regular occurrence at my last home. I've since moved and blessedly not seen any here or elsewhere. I'd love to write it all off as imagination but my daughter saw them there, too.

I believe you saw what you say you saw. Something had to serve as a basis for all those stories of Satyrs and fauns. Just like something is the basis for the Muslim Jinn, which is what I believe was around my last house in such disconcerting abundance, and what I think I saw that night.

Very interesting account. Whilst I do not disbelieve you and you may well have seen a goat man, given that it was an old disused graveyard, could it be possible that some secretive satanic group or D&D group or something like that, were having a ceremony or get together, dressed in costume, and he was the acting 'doorman' to make sure no uninvited guests got in? If he had good prosthetic feet on, think you even get shoes like this now, that look like hooves, that would explain the extra height, maybe? If it was a specialist group, then they would not necessarily be people from around your area, people travel far for specialist club events.

This was just the face of a goat with gazelle horns. The hooves were definitely too big to be that of a goat. At times, I've wondered what would have happened if I'd stopped or crept by.


He might have asked for change to ride the bus. Or needed assistance on a quest.

I guess you'll never know. I've never seen a Pan personally so I couldn't fathom what he could be going on about.

Interesting story. I hadn't heard about Pan's connection to sex, however, he is supposedly fond of nymphs, so maybe he just wanted to have a three way with you and your "nymph". I have heard that the god Pan is the root word for panic. Makes since considering panic would be most anyone's response to such an encounter.

Here is an interesting snippet from Wikipedia . . .



Pan is famous for his sexual powers, and is often depicted with a phallus. Diogenes of Sinope, speaking in jest, related a myth of Pan learning masturbation from his father, Hermes, and teaching the habit to shepherds.

Interesting, I have a question thought, any crossroads nearby? or is the cemitery linked by a crossroad?

I'm nuts I suppose I would have attempted to communicate .
I wouldn't desecrate a graveyard however.

a reply to: cavtrooper7I don't know if I would say you're nuts. If this were a clear cut case of it being an unknown but natural species, I'd be curious, too. I would not try to communicate, but from the relative security of an enclose automobile I might have gawked a little longer, and nowadays I'd try to get my cell phone up and snap a pic if I thought it could turn out, before telling the driver to make haste. Someone previously said their fight or flight response is a bit whacked, well so is mine a bit. (Unless it involves angry raccoons. You won't see anyone run as fast as I do when I run into a pissed off raccoon in my yard. I've been chased enough, and those bastards carry rabies around here).

But his girlfriend has those scratches which indicate a paranormal element, possibly demonic. I'm no expert, but I've followed the paranormal part of this forum long enough to read and heed the advice of people who are more experienced: don't mess, don't attempt to communicate. Run like hell. Or ignore and go about your business. But no getting chummy with paranormal dudes with horns and a hard cold stare who go all Freddy Kreuger on your friends!

Aside from the fan fiction and short stories, some of the articles on that sub reddit about peoples experiences with the supernatural are just down right freaky.

Reoccurring things I see in stories about strange experiences with "goatmen" and other similar creatures is that they are always in secluded forest areas and often accompanied by the smell of rotten eggs, like sulfur.

I know the OP was in a car and you were probably driving pretty fast when you passed whatever you seen, but do you remember any pungent odors?

Well CRAP! I had three paragraphs written out to you about other experiences I've had like yours and my flippin computer froze up!

I'll sum it up now.

My dad, when he was 13 (1965), used to hear wooping sounds coming from the woods in the wee hours of the morning while he was in the field feeding the cattle. He said he used to make the noises back towards the woods. About 45 years later, we were watching some witness accounts about Bigfoot and one man said he saw two of them communicating back and forth by making wooping noises. You could have been out there among the goatman in PG, Maryland and not known it...

I believe I have a little child ghost that "haunts" my house. While sitting in my recliner one quiet Sunday afternoon, I heard a pitter patter that sounded like a child's footsteps run from the back end of my house, through the living room where I was sitting, and into my bedroom. My son, who was 4 and sitting with me at the time, looked up at me and said "What was that, Daddy?"

When I was single, I never slept in my bed because I like to snuggle, so I would sleep on my couch. I probably couldn't count on both hands, how many times I've heard my dryer door shut, or my refrigerator door slam while I laid there. I would casually lean over, grab the remote, turn the TV on, and go back to sleep. My fiance lives with me now, and she's heard it several times. It usually happens in my bathroom. Now here's the best proof I've got for that, and you can take this for what it's worth. After cleaning my bathroom thoroughly one evening, I noticed that I'd missed a spot on my mirror. I know I cleaned it the best because that toothpaste spatter can be hard to remove sometimes. So I get up to the spot and I notice a child's hand print. I have four boys, I compare the print to all my boys. At that time, they were 4, 6, 7, and 9. The print was bigger than my 4 year old's print, and smaller than my 6 year old's print. So I could always have proof, I snapped a picture. I can't prove the hand comparisons, but I can sure show the picture. You can zoom in and look for any other spots and you won't find anything.

There are lots of weird and unexplainable things in my small town. It's been rumored that True Blood and Salem were/are filmed there and in the surrounding area because of all the supernatural things that have been seen. And both shows have shown satyr creatures in them.
