Goatman Photographed in Utah

Posted by: Loren Coleman on July 20th, 2012

A series of photos of what appear to be a man near a herd of goats while donning an elaborate goat suit are baffling wildlife officials who wish to speak with the mystery man – or woman.

The photos, first posted to the image-sharing website Imgur.com, show what looks like a person in the white suit, crawling on all fours near Ben Lomond Peak in Weber County, Utah.

Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    Goatman! The superhero of the age!

    I doubt if it is a photographer. Lugging the camera equipment needed to get a decent photograph is not something you would want to do dressed up as a goat. One would employ a more stealth method of a blind or setting up downwind with a tripod mount of where the goats might actually cross your path.

    In my opinion, it is either a hunter stalking out the herd for a future hunt or just some nut that likes dressing up as a goat and trying to become “one” with the herd. LOL

    Looks shopped.

    Some people just like to get peoples’ goat up by acting the goat…..

  5. Desertdweller responds:

    In the first picture, the “thing” appears to be wearing a shoe on its right rear foot.

    This looks to me like a very poor way to stalk goats (who detect predators by sense of smell) and a very good way to get yourself killed.

    The things some people will do to get a date.

    Show this to the Patterson faithful and they will point out the muscle structure of the beast and how it has to be real. 😉

    Alli kidding aside, when I adapted & directed a stage version of AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON here in Maine, we did research on making the most realistic wolf suit possible for an actor to wear (that was within a community theater budget). It was actually a little disturbing what we found.

    There is an underground culture of people who are into dressing up like animals as a fetish. You may laugh but it is a lot bigger group than you would think. The more realist the animal suit the better. All categories of animals too. There are websites where people post pictures of themselves in costume acting like their chosen animal. They post videos on Youtube. They post tips on how to make a better costume. It goes beyond a sexual fetish, it’s like a being at one with nature thing.

    Anyway our production team found out that these people make the best suits for the money. Based on all that it wouldn’t be that farfetched that this “goatman” falls into this category as someone who literally wants to be at one with goats.

    If this person isn’t harming anyone or anything, then just let him be. There can’t be a law against dressing up like a goat. 😉

  9. Desertdweller responds:

    There is no law against dressing up like a goat.
    There is a law allowing the hunting of goats.

    Connect the dots to see why this is a bad idea.

    Albino chupacabra – that’s what I’d put the money on.

  11. Fhqwhgads responds:

    Even with the costume, it’s hard to see how a cautious hunter could mistake a guy (or gal!) on his hands and knees for a goat. That’s especially true if the hunter sees the lower part of the leg dragging along the ground, but also any movement will be decidedly un-goat-like. It’s a lot easier to imagine some hoaxer in a gorilla suit getting killed.

  12. not even wrong responds:

    A youtube video was just posted by Justin Smeja talking about shooting the goatman. Apparently he shot one of the baby goatmen as well. He said it looked like a guy in a costume but he shot anyway. He is planning to go back to look for some goatman steaks in the next few weeks for dna testing.
