Pope Lick Monster - Goat Man

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Pope Lick Monster - Goat Man

The Goat Man of Pope Lick is rumored to be a farmer who tortured goats at the devil’s request and therefore forfeited his soul. But other legends say he is a refugee from a circus train wreck. The horned and hairy monster is supposed to trick folks into his clutches by mimicking children calling for help or hypnotizing them. When he gets victims onto the railroad tracks, they’re paralyzed in front of a speeding train.
