Goatman stories originated in the early 1970s, within Prince George’s County, following the disappearances and/or deaths of multiple dogs, which were later attributed to the creature. However, given the condition of remains, the deaths may more likely have been the result of passing trains.Despite evidence to the contrary, stories of Goatman’s existence continued to circulate, especially among local students. Graffiti reading, “Goatman was here,” was not uncommon, and law enforcement would habitually receive calls of reported sightings, albeit with a number being pranks.

The creature was commonly claimed to have a human face but with a body covered in hair. However, descriptions differed on whether Goatman greater resembled a hairy humanoid or a human with the lower portion of a goat similar to the fauns of Greek mythology.

As well, Goatman was rumored to reside in a makeshift shelter in the wooded region of northwestern Prince George’s County near the vicinity of Bowie. Occasionally, it was rumored that Goatman would venture out to kill a dog or rush up abruptly, beating cars with an ax.
