Another 'Maryland Goatman' Encounter


I came across another 'Goatman' account from Prince George's County, Maryland:

One night about ten years ago me and my best friend decided to stop by a local “hangout” of ours in Bowie, MD to smoke a cigarette before he dropped me off at home. We grew up here and spent our early years wandering the railroad tracks and woods, smoking and drinking as children do. So this one spot is a railroad overpass at 450 and 197. There’s a parking lot and a small area of grass and trees, about 30 foot strip of land separating the tracks and the lot. So it’s nighttime and we decide to go there to smoke a cigarette. We go on the tracks and we’re facing the parking lot, so the overpass and to our left and the tracks go on to our right. This way we’re still barely in the glow from the yellow parking lot lights. Now we’re smoking and he’s talking but the entire time I’m focused to my right, peering down this track because I have the strangest feeling. I didn’t know what it was until later and it was the feeling of being watched by a predator, which I’ve never experienced before. After about two mins we’re almost done our cigarettes a helicopter flies right above us, seemingly at tree level, with the spotlight briefly going right over us coming from the direction of the overpass. Not 5 seconds later I hear the gravel shift from between the tracks and I look towards the overpass.

Standing right in the center of the overpass, there is this GIANT silhouette. Now since it is dark and it’s under the overpass I can only see it’s silhouette. It’s about 8 or 9 feet tall and burly looking. It appeared as if its head was attached to its torso, completely bypassing any semblance of a neck, the way super-jacked dudes look. It was huge and we only looked at it for about a second before I said Let’s go now! Now we we hurriedly starting rushing away and we hear the gravel move closer and not 3 seconds later we both hear the most demonic, horrifying, multiple pitched screech literally right behind our heads. It came from no more than a FOOT BEHIND US. So of course we book it to his car and no we didn’t look back because are you f**king kidding me get real. We get to his car and funny thing his lanyard got stuck around the steering wheel and when we pulled out his keys pulled out of the ignition as he turned the steering wheel. Anyways we drive around for an hour, only thing we could say is “what the f**k” and that’s my encounter with the Goat Man.

Now a week later we’re hanging out with our friend...let’s call him Andy. Now Andy has spent a lot of time in the woods and he was telling us about how last week the cops were out in the woods because they heard screams and thought a woman was being raped. Now I asked him if they had helicopters out and he said yes, and I asked him what day it was and it was the same night we saw the Goat Man. So we told him our experience and he was like yeah that was him.

I’ve spoken to a few others who have actually seen it and give a similar description to mine as well as the picture found online if you search Bowie goatman. - Unvolta - posted on Reddit 'Humanoid Encounters'

NOTE: The 'Maryland Goatman' has been seen off and on for the past 40+ years in Prince Georges County...especially in the areas of Bowie and Laurel. There have also been many Bigfoot sightings as well. Here are a few links:

Huge Bird Encounter in Germany


“I had a big bird experience when I was stationed in Germany. I had crawled across a field in order to establish a forward observation post. I was a good kilometer from our tracked vehicle and well out of sight of any other human. Oddly enough I found a nice hole to crawl into. It wasn't long before I was rewarded with opposition force activity as two M113 armored personnel carriers pulled up about 200 meters in front of me. I observed them from my concealed position for about 30 minutes in which they drove off completely unaware of my position. I sat there a little longer and once I concluded no one else was coming I packed in my night scope in and crawled back to our position in the woods Half way through this journey I stopped for a drink and I don't know if I presented a target or what but, out of the pitch darkness of night swooped this huge bird. Its wingspan had to be six, seven or eight feet in length which scared the living sh*t out of me. I crawled back quickly and told only the facts two tracks on the road that's all.” - Mike Lcml5c

NOTE: I'm not sure if there is an natural explanation, but I have heard of other abnormally sized birds being seen in Germany, Czech Republic and Austria. They are usually described as having bat-shaped wings and referred to as 'Alps'. Lon

Strange Orb / Hag-Like Being

“I’m not concerned people won’t believe me; some will some won’t, but I’ll stick to one that can’t be easily dismissed. Generally I’m a night owl, something I can afford because of my health, but I enjoy going for walks and runs at night on my property, a 2 acre, but the back is mostly unused with a nice hill on it that gives you a view of our property and the neighbors, a carpenter business. There is a large field on the other side and when the moon is out which is common for where we live it illuminates the night well enough that you can see after allowing your eyes to adjust after a few minutes.

One particular night I’m out running up on our trails and as I’m on top of the hill looking over the properties, I can’t remember if I was switching songs on my ipod or just taking a breather, but I’m standing up there looking over both properties. It’s a nice view, so it isn’t uncommon for me to do so. As I’m looking this I notice what appears to be a glowing ball, about slightly larger than a basketball descending from the sky. We’ve had our share of unusual sightings, but never something like this. My immediate thoughts turned to excitement as I believed I was looking at ball lightning. At the time I knew of it and whenever hearing it discussed always had a curiosity and apprehension towards the phenomena. My lucky night then that I’m far enough way that it can’t reach me, but close enough to see it clearly. It descends into my neighbors property, getting about maybe 8 feet from the ground, below the roofline as the buildings are all warehouse sized structures it emits a beam of light, like a flashlight. It’s floating about still very visible shining a light on things as if it was looking for something. It became obvious at this point I was not looking at ball lightning, but more importantly the idea sank in that this thing whatever it was was in fact looking for me, but had gotten the properties wrong. I can’t say why I thought that, but that was the thought that popped into my head at the time. Now some will claim it was flashlights, but I’ve seen flashlights on his property before. Good flashlights, to the point I immediately called the police believing people were breaking into his property. Hilariously the people I’d seen after the call went out were revealed to be the police themselves checking on the place, something they don’t do often. I can tell what a good flashlight looks shining off the buildings, it looks very movie like, but it never casted a light that formed a ball. This ball was also the source of the light as it coned away from the ball and the way it moved reminds me of a drone from a movie. Upon seeing this I bolted for my house and cut my exercise for the night short, but I did something smart, I went and told my brother who was also up what I’d seen. I told him in detail and I can’t remember but I’m fairly certain we both agreed on not going outside to see if it was still there for reasons that would be obvious to anyone reading this. I’m not a fan of people who say they didn’t tell anyone, when I see something weird I tell people.

I’ll tell a second story on the same note, where I saw a hag-like creature in someone’s yard. It’s not a riveting story, my father was driving and I was looking out the window at houses we’ve passed countless times. In one yard something caught my eye; it was black, but not shadowy. It looked like a deformed person, something you’d see maybe in a Lovecraftian tale (I hadn’t read anything of Lovecraft's or even knew of the concept of Eldritch at the time) or something that had been exposed to radiation. It looked like a hideously deformed person. At first I rationalized it must be some decoration, but then the thing moved, before I could figure out what it was we passed by. Immediately I tell my father to turn around that I saw something weird in the yard and I wanted to get a better look at it. It took us maybe 20 seconds to roundabout as it's a rural area, but by the time we got back it was gone. There was nothing that could possibly trick the eye, no where any person could have gone if they were in costume. It was just gone. It was strange, but that was it.” - Kevin

Starbucks MIB


Mike in Oregon called in to tell of his MIB sighting:

“I'm not much of a believer in Men In Black or anything of that stuff, I'm really not. I'm pretty pragmatic. Today (February 15, 2012), at Starbucks, not only did I run into my Gym Creek buddy which kinda freaked me out. But I'm sitting there. We had a nice little conversation. I was reading a book and I just look over and there's this guy walking out the door of Starbucks. He looks like he's about 6'2. He looks like he's about... I'm only catching this from the profile. I didn't see him head on. 6'2, he looked like he weighed about between 135 and 140 pounds. He had a black coat on that went all the way from his neck down to below his ankles. And he had a black hat on. His skin, you know what mat-white color looks like, right? Really bright mat-white. No gloss, just kind of matted down. I caught him. All I saw was in profile, okay? White! White, like there is no red blood cells. And he had white fuzz on his face. And he wore this black hat, a fedora like out of the 40s or 50s or something like that. (Clyde asks where he saw him) I was in Hillsboro (Oregon). Here's the thing that wiped me out about him. I can remember things pretty well. He went in and bought a cup of coffee. He walked out the door and as he's walking up the street and instead of holding the coffee like normally you would, like in close to your body or something like that, he was holding it out in front of him and it looked like... and honest to god, I'm not lying to you, man, it looked like the coffee was dragging him along. It was the most doggone thing. I've never seen anybody carry a cup of coffee like that. You know, it was just so strange. He obviously was in there buying coffee but I didn't see that part of it.”

'Imaginary' Friend

I recently received the following account:

This story was relayed to me by a friend and coworker named Steve. He has no interest in the supernatural or paranormal, his only passions being, in fact, technology and baseball. However, he unwillingly found himself on the end of what he is certain was a ghostly encounter. Steve lives in Fair Lawn, NJ in a three-bedroom home with his two sons and daughter, and this particular story took place around 2005.

The first inkling that Steve and his family were not alone in the house happened later one night after his wife went to bed and his children were asleep. He was sitting on the couch in his living room watching television when his TV suddenly went off. Thinking there was a problem with the cable box, he grabbed the remote and turned it back on. Within minutes it shut off again.

When it happened a third time, he unplugged the TV and box to reset everything. Back then you were supposed to leave boxes unplugged for at least 30 seconds to make sure it reset correctly, so he quickly ran to the bathroom. He came back to a strange scene. The TV was now on with static snow on the screen—but it was still unplugged. After staring at it dumbfounded for a few seconds it went off again and stayed off.

The next unexplainable occurrence happened a couple of weeks later. It was again evening, and again all children were in bed. Steve was sitting in his recliner and his wife was on the couch doing paperwork for work. All of a sudden, he felt a hand grab his shoulder from behind as if someone were reaching over the back of the recliner. Thinking that one of his kids had gotten out of bed and needed something, he turned around only to see nobody. Perplexed, he asked his wife if she had just seen one of the kids downstairs, but she hadn’t. Still startled, he went upstairs to peek in on his kids and saw that they were all still tucked in.

Not long after that, he was in his youngest son’s room reading a bedtime story. His son was four-years-old at the time and this particular story was about friendship. His son said that he had a friend named Jimmy whom he liked to play with. Thinking that he was a friend at daycare, Steve asked him if he played with Jimmy there. His son responded that he played with Jimmy in his room. Believing that his son had his first imaginary friend, Steve turned off the light and said good night.

A couple of days later they were again reading a bedtime story together. The subject of Jimmy came up again and Steve asked if he was having fun with his little friend. “Jimmy’s not little, Daddy, he’s big,” he answered. “He’s right over there,” and he pointed to the doorway to his room. Even though that was slightly unnerving, Steve simply thought that his son was imagining an adult friend and didn’t think much about it further.

One subsequent day Steve was talking outside with his nextdoor neighbor who had lived in the neighborhood for years. While chatting he brought up that his son now had an imaginary friend whom he named Jimmy but it was a bit weird because he was an older imaginary friend. His neighbor then got a quizzical look on his face as Steve could see the gears turning in his head. His neighbor then informed him that a man named Jimmy had lived in Steve’s house with his parents a couple of owners previous. Jimmy was a Vietnam veteran who sadly got cancer not long after returning from his tour, and he passed away not long after that. The neighbor recalled going to the funeral along with many citizens of town and the whole affair was extraordinarily sad.

The neighbor gave a description of what Jimmy looked like and then Steve asked his son what Jimmy looked like. The only match they could make was that both descriptions included a man with brown hair, but without a picture of Jimmy, which they couldn't find, they weren't able to compare any further.

So was Steve’s son’s Jimmy the same Jimmy who had lived in their house and was still hanging around after his death? Was he also the one who caused the shenanigans with the TV and who had grabbed Steve’s shoulder that one night? If so, why did Jimmy visibly make himself known to Steve's son but to no one else in the house? After a while, his son ceased mentioning Jimmy and now, as a teenager, he doesn't even recall having a friend named Jimmy. Whether this was the spirit of the young man who met an unfortunate early departure from this life or not, one thing Steve is sure of is that, for at least a time, there was something very unusual going on in his home.
