The Popelick Monster

Popelick Goatman

General Information

The Pope Lick Monster is a legendary part-man, part-goat and part-sheep creature reported to live beneath a Norfolk Southern Railroad trestle over Floyd's Fork Creek, in the Fisherville area of Louisville, Kentucky. In most accounts, the Pope Lick Monster (named after the Pope Lick Creek below the Pope Lick Train Trestle) appears as a human-goat hybrid with the grotesquely deformed body of a man. It has powerful, fur-covered goat legs, an alabaster-skinned face with an aquiline nose and wide set eyes. Short, sharp horns protrude from the forehead, nestled in long greasy hair that matched the colour of the fur on the legs.

The Popelick Prank

Josh here! This one took a little while to do, but dang was it funny. I had this idea as a child studying cryptids, so being the one to head this prank was a dream come true! So, Sam, dean, and I had bought about two dozen cat nip plants when we had got to Louisville Kentucky. We spent the next few days planting them all around the bridge that Popelick is known to frequent. We went back home for about a month to let the plants grow. We returned a month later and collected homeless cats.

We spent a few days herding them, by the end we had about 60 cats. Then the plan was ready. We saw the Popelick walking around his territory and released the cats. The cats went wild when they smalt the cat nip, and the look on Popelicks face was priceless when he realized the cats were invading his space.
