The Goatman is a hominid cryptid associated with the state of Maryland in the USA. It is described as a hybrid creature; part man and part goat. Some claim it is a relative of Bigfoot. Its appearance is similar to the satyrs or the god Pan of Greek mythology, or to the Devil. The Goatman of Maryland is often associated with St. Mark the Evangelist school, in the back of the yard where an unknown “house” lies in Prince George’s County, and with the nearby Glenn Dale Hospital, the former site of a state tuberculosis sanatorium. It is reported to have attacked a number of witnesses and to have damaged property. It has also been reported to have killed family pets.
