Goatman Moon Bun by MoonYen Goatman Moon Bun by MoonYen
As a child, growing up in Prince George's County, Maryland, I was terrified of the Goatman, so I had to commemorate him in the 31 Amigurumi in October series.

The Goatman is a hominid cryptid most commonly associated with Maryland in the USA. It is described as a hybrid creature; part man and part goat. Its appearance is similar to the satyrs of Greek mythology.

The Goatman of Maryland is often associated with Governor’s Bridge Road, Lottsford Road and Fletchertown Road, 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.

He is the twenty-fifth design for 2008's 31 Amigurumi in October.

I heard of him on the TV show 'Creepy Canada' they did a segment with a few witnesses who claimed they saw him and one guy who had a dog killed by him and another who'd seen him at his bedroom window as a kid, I was 21 and he scared the HELL out of me, even now the sound of a goat bleating puts me on edge

I've heard of him as a child but I kind've blocked out those memories >_> Mum finally realized how terrified I was so she finally stopped telling me about him.
This is so adorable :)

It's important to keep urban legends alive :laughing: They're so much fun! Specially looking back to when you were a kid and you were afraid of such things :D
