The Legend Of The Pope Lick Monster In Kentucky May Send Chills Down Your Spine

The Bluegrass State is big on history, with plenty of local lore and legends mixed in for good measure, too. One of the most infamous and chilling legends in Kentucky that’s been passed down in hushed whispers around campfires is that of the Pope Lick Monster. The Pope Lick Monster — or “Goat Man,” as he’s colloquially referred — is a beast that’s part man, part goat, and part sheep. He’s reported to live beneath a railroad trestle bridge over Kentucky’s Pope Lick Creek, a location that’s seen more than its fair share of tragedy and sorrow throughout the years.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
