A witness who had been driving home in the early hours of Sunday morning encountered something very unusual.
The incident, which occurred at around 2am on Sunday morning on the A425 near Staverton in Northamptonshire, has since been described online by a witness who goes by the name 'GallopingHighRoad.'

"We had been away for a few nights and travelled back quite late," they wrote.

"Towards the end of our journey, this was about 2am, we were driving along an A Road in a rural area when something crossed the road in front of us in full headlights for about three seconds."

"It was about the height of a person, maybe 6ft or over, but had short powerful legs and hips which seemed to move in a circular fluid fashion."
"It was not a deer because it stood on two legs."

"We drove back today as its only seven miles from home to look at the road layout and whatever it was moved into a wide bowl-shaped field dropping down to a stream."

The story went on to generate quite a bit of debate online and was picked up by several news sites.

As things stand, however, the identity of the creature that the witness saw that night remains a total mystery.

Did it walk out of sight or just disappear? Another low budget article.

I was sitting under my poncho in the rain the first time I saw a deer do that.  I looked like a lump he couldn't figure out.  It is uncanny if you have not seen it before and rather admirable.

Does anyone remember the story of Thomas Thwaites, the REAL GoatMan? He really lived with the goats.

I'm betting it has a different meaning in PA and OH

@DieChecker Are you aware that the "goatman photo" you just posted is an art piece?

I was just looking for what the US goatman supposedly looked like.  Though... No I didn't know that.

Just making sure. For clarity and all that jazz. The artist's name is Lew Delport.

It's called a "furry". Similar creatures have been shot by hunters in the USA.  They are an invasive species of beast-man who actively revel in acts of sub-humanism. They are known to come from the planet Ssah-Tyre.
