More Info on the Goatman

Since presenting this anonymously donated picture in last week's post we have received numerous leads regarding the the mysterious Goatman of Bethesda Missouri.  According to one Springfield native who has contacted us, this particular Goatman was his great grand uncle Mortimer! (last name withheld)

While we attempt to acquire genealogical records to back his remarkable claim, feel free to check out the website of the Lake Worth Goatman of Texas.

The Mysterious Goat Man

Since revealing the story of the lost town of Bethesda Missouri and the secretive lodge of the Fraternal Order of the Seekers we have received a number of possible leads to more information, but none so strange as this antique photograph sent to us by an anonymous source.

The photo shows no evidence of trickery or manipulation.  In the photo, which appears to date from approximately 1910, we see three men sitting in front of a rustic lodge, perhaps the famous Seekers lodge in Bethesda.  Standing behind them in a stance of obvious camaraderie is an inhuman creature smoking a pipe!

The creature appears to resemble the legendary Goat Man of Maryland, or the Goat Man of Pope Lick Kentucky, or the Goat Man of Lake Worth Texas, though the photo predates any of these more modern legends by at least 50 years.  Fortunately, the creature (who probably normally went naked as most cryptids) has covered himself with a blanket for the sake of propriety.

The photograph begs far more questions than it answers.  Is this truly the only known photograph of the lodge at Bethesda Missouri, or is it from another, similar lodge in some other place?  What was the relationship between these men, the Goat Man, and other cryptids?  Were there, or are there today, people who have secretly befriended such legendary creatures?  We ask anyone with any pertinent information to please contact us!

The Mystery of the Lost Week

While going over website statistics this weekend I came upon a shocking observation:  Somehow, an entire week has disappeared from my timeline.  No, not just on the website, but from my personal time experience!  For the first time since the beginning of this blog I have missed a weekly entry.  What could have possibly caused such an interruption in the flow of time?

Apparently, some very odd things have happened while I was missing from the time flow.  According to my fellow Cryptid Rangers, Springfield experienced a strange warm weather snowstorm during that week, as seen in this photograph.  As we all know, cryptozoological entities tend to be more active during unseasonal weather.  I should have been out doing double duty during the storm, and yet something (or someone) has erased all of my memory of the event.  It is also strange that the snow then disappeared immediately before Springfield's ArtsFest (according to Ranger E who was witness to the event).

This has led me to a disturbing theory:  Perhaps I WAS present during that week, and at some time during or after the storm I discovered something so important, so salient, and so amazing that something HAD to erase my memory to keep me from reporting the Truth!

In spite of the trepidation this has caused me, you can be sure that I will continue my endeavours and will continue to bring you information on the world of Urban Cryptids.
