At the beginning of the 21st Century monsters still roam the remote, and sometimes not so remote, corners of our planet. It is our job to search for them. The Centre for Fortean Zoology [CFZ] is - we believe - the largest professional, scientific and full-time organisation in the world dedicated to cryptozoology - the study of unknown animals. Since 1992 the CFZ has carried out an unparalleled programme of research and investigation all over the world. Since 2009 we have been running the increasingly popular CFZ Blog Network, and although there has been an American branch of the CFZ for over ten years now, it is only now that it has a dedicated blog.

Can anyone out there supply me with information on either of the following?

(a) the Chevo Goatman, said to be found in California;

(b) the Hoofed Horror, reported from Maine.

I understand there is an old Pennsylvania saying which is roughly, "Don't go into the woods or the Forestman will get you."  I presume the Forestman is the kind of booger used to keep children away from dangerous places, but is there a larger tradition of the Forestman as an entity in Pennsylvania folklore and does he differ from Bigfoot?
