SALT LAKE CITY – Goat Man was among a herd of wild goats in the mountains of northern Utah has wildlife as hunting season approaches.
Joe Flanagan of the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources said there have been numerous reports of The Goat Man in the past three weeks.
“My first concern is that hunters are going to try to shoot him as a prize to put on their wall. We don’t want hundreds of hunters out there killing a half-man, half-goat.”
Flanagan said a man hiking Sunday along Ben Lomond peak in the mountains above Ogden, about 40 miles north of Salt Lake City, spotted the The Goat Man among a herd of real goats. The person provided some blurry photographs to Douglass, who said they did not appear to have been altered. The man said that the thought The Goat Man was having sex with one of the herd.
Wildlife officials, with the protection of the Utah National Guard want to talk to The Goat Man man so that he is aware of the fact that he is being hunted. They also hope that they can bring The Goat Man in and get him some help at a local zoo (and a local therapist).
“We’ve had hundreds of similar reports over the last few weeks,” Flanagan said. He encouraged people to stay away from Northern Utah. “There’s a saying we have among biologists – You don’t go far enough, you don’t get the data. You go too far, you don’t go home. The same is true with some wildlife enthusiasts.”
These goats were accused of “hiding” their friend, The Goat Man.
Flanagan said 2,060 permits were issued for goat hunting season in that area, which begins in September. He worries The Goat Man might be the “prize catch.”
“He may get agitated. They’re territorial. He is, after all, partly a wild animal,” he said.
Flanagan went on to say, “I want people to enjoy Utah’s wildlife. We live in a really neat place. We have wildlife all around us and we want people to be safe.”
Unfortunately, the Goat Man attacked a herd of goats, tearing them to shreds last night. These are the goats:
The FBI is now involved and it looks like The Goat Man is on America’s Most Wanted List now. “He’ll be captured and put behind bars, so that citizens in the area will be safe,” said FBI agent, Sasha Malley.

I thought the Goat Man is a myth or some sort, but I guess that he is real for real.
I read somewhere that he's an archery hunter who's trying to find a way to get closer to the wild goats during hunting season.
Hilarious!! I read the AP article about a man pretending to be a goat to track them so when he comes back he can hunt them. Then I came across this article that twisted all the information around to make it sound like he is an evil terror and that all the hunters are trying to go after him. Nope. The "Goat Man" is just a hunter from california and a tarp with wool glued to it learning how to track goats for an archery hunt later in the year. He has since left the mountain. When he does go back to hunt, he will NOT be using the costume, it was only to get close so he can see how they move and react.
please tell me this is a joke
The Greater League of Offical Monsters(GLoOM) is looking for info on the jackalope breeding grounds in Arizona, California, and Texas.
Aside from the goatman, the mountain is such a peaceful retreat from the polluted urban highways. I also found some nice vacation perks, somewhere in Australia. Of course, I did find out more.
There is a web site that is all about hunting the goatman. The goatman has been around for years. http://www.goatmansbridge.com
Isn't Goatman supposed in Greece?
