Urban Legends: The Pope Lick Monster (Fisherville, Kentucky)

The Pope Lick Monster, also known as the Goat Man, is said to be a half-man, half-goat creature (some say a sheep is in the mix somehow) who lives beneath a railroad trestle in Fisherville, near Louisville.

According to an article by WDRB News in Louisville, the creature hypnotizes or lures his victims onto the Pope Lick trestle where they will be struck by a train. In other legends, the creature jumps from the trestle onto cars below or attacks victims with a blood-stained ax. The Pope Lick trestle is still in use and is extremely dangerous to visit.
