Call it urban myth or a malevolent elemental spirit, the Goatman demon that is said to haunt the railroad trestle over the Pope Lick Creek has said to lure many victims throughout the years; and that is the one real fact about this story, which is the amount of people that have met their death at this spot.
The wendigo is the darkest of spirits, described as having too-tight skin, towering antlers, and an inexhaustible appetite for human flesh.
Many think that the wendigo is just a character out of Native American mythology, but in 1879, a Cree by the name of Swift Runner did its bidding by killing and cannibalizing his entire family.
