After my own search for the Goatman, I got this great opportunity to speak to someone who has seen the creature in person- or in half-goat, half-person. Read below for Dan Judd’s story. With all of this information, I can’t wait to go another search! Dan has told me he has even more details and as soon as I get them I will post them!
Q: We recently set out to find the goatman at its rumored hangout Governors bridge road. Where did your sighting take place?
Dan:When i saw goat man it was actually off Race Track Rd. Where the new development is now. It use to be all woods and the old barns and stables from the Bowie Racetrack were still standing. I had originally set out on my bike looking for an old bus in the woods that a friend of my dads was telling me about. I entered in from the top the R- Section. I forget the name of the road now. But it’s the road that runs next to Rocklidge Park. I was walking my bike in the woods and came to a fork in the path. One going deep into the woods and one going down a hill that lead to field. Since i was by myself i went down the hill into the field rather deep into the woods. I was walking my bike since the grass around the path was high and I wasn’t familiar with the woods or any of the stories i later heard about them. This also had to be about 3 or 4pm in the afternoon. As I was walking I felt as if i was being watched, yeah i know cliche, so I stopped looked up and to my right. And at about 200 feet away was a creature staring at me.
Q: What time of day was it and were you alone?
Dan:Yes I was alone and it was about 3 or 4pm. So it was still bright and sunny and clear at that point.
Q: can you describe the creature for us? Did it have horns? How tall was it? Did it make any sounds? Be as descriptive as you can be.
Dan:When I looked up and saw the creature I was scared to saw the least. It was about 7 feet tall. I am making that estimate because it was standing under a smaller tree that looked like a younger tree. It had a thin long head much like a deer or a goat. A long neck down to shoulders, similar or a man. and it was completely covered in fur. At this point I turned around and booked it out of there. I looked back as i turned and it wad taken off the opposite direction. It wasn’t exactly running but it wasn’t trotting. It was definitely on 2 feet. But it was more of a longer stride. And as it went through the brush it didn’t push any branches or foliage out of the way like a person would as they are walking or running through the woods. I distinctly remember seeing ears and no horns. It didn’t look like the devil like a lot of people and pictures depict it. It was brown and had a white patch coming down from his neck to back that was white and in the shape of a diamond. It looked back once at me as i took off and it definitely was not human . but because it was upright and had shoulders and arms it was not a deer. It moved similar to a human but didn’t act like one, since it didn’t block the branches just kind of let it hit it in the body and face. Long gaping stride but semi nimble too.
Q: Some reports state the goatman is a homeless man. Is there any possibility of this?
Dan: I can certainly see how some would think its a homeless man. But what I saw was not human. It didn’t make any noises i noticed. it was ran off. I am sure a homeless dude wouldn’t just run from a 15 year old by himself either.
Q: have you ever had any other paranormal experiences? If so please describe.
Dan: My dad use to live in Brentwood and we went to St Rose Catholic Church. I went down in the basement of this really old church to use the bathroom. It was the middle of the summer, and i got a horrible chill, again like I was being watched. But I was alone. And it felt like something was real close to me. I later finally saw the movie the Excorsist, and read about it. St Rose was the church that the movie is based on. And there was a lot written about it and still being haunted by the Devil himself and other spirits. Not many people fill the church and kneelers at empty pews always fall and weird non-human and non-musical noises are heard all the time when we were in mass there.
I’ve been to Governor’s Rd and Cry Baby’s Bridge and saw and heard nothing there.
I’ve also been to the Glendale Hospital. Nothing special but I was scared the entire time since this was after goatman. And that’s another rumored place of his. The only really weird thing we saw was a white Dove flying repeatedly into a wall in a room that looked like it was an old theater.
