Today residents of Lake Worth, Texas live life as normally as possible. Life goes on in this small town of 5,000 from day to day in the shadow of a mystery which first began in 1969 when a strange creature was first spotted in the area. The creature is allegedly half-man and half-goat, the very image of a creature straight out of the book of Revelation. The town was first informed of the creature in the form of a headline written by Jim Marrs, a local reporter when he titled a headline “Fishy Man-Goat Terrifies Couples Parked at Lake Worth.”

The creature was allegedly a goat-man hybrid of some sort with fur and even scales that had a violent temper and often threw objects around frightened lovers in the area. One incident occurred when John Reichart claimed the creature had jumped from a tree onto the hood of his car leaving an 18-inch scratch in the paint and metal on the side of his car’s engine block. After the creature appeared, Reichart spun his car around and sped quickly to the police department where he reported the incident to police. There had been a couple of sightings before this one, including one where the “goat man” hurled a tire down the side of a hill into a valley. The sighting and property damage were enough to convince police this incident required some investigation. Loading into their police car they surveyed the area where the incident took place, but found no conclusive evidence aside from broken tree branches. The following night a local man would claim he had been the one to throw the tire off the side of the road, but had nothing to do with the other incidents. In 1969 a man named Allen Plaster would take the only known photograph of the creature. Years later a book would be written about the creature. Another book, a mystery novel, chronicled the details of the goat man, but as is often the case with encounters of the paranormal it was supplemented by much narrative that had nothing to do with the reality of the legend. The real goat man, for example, has never been known to commit murder.
