Rare Found Photos of Ches McCartney, the Legendary Goat Man That You've Never Seen Before

Charles "Ches" McCartney, (1901–1998) also known as the Goat Man, was an American itinerant wanderer who traveled up and down the eastern United States from 1930 to 1987 in a ramshackle wagon pulled by a team of goats.

He claimed to have covered more than 100,000 miles and visited all states except Hawaii. He was a familiar sight to many travelers and vacationers during those years, and one difficult to not notice or remember.

“The biggest shock I got while going through my box of slides was two pictures of the Goatman Ches McCartney”, Jacob - American photographer - said.

“My mother, who gave me this box of slides, had also given me a Goatman Postcard after my wife had tole her about my obsession with the mysterious traveler. When I found these pictures my hair stood on end with shock and delight and I quickly phoned my mom to thank her. What really suprised me was that she had NO idea that there were any pictures of the Goatman in the slide box, meaning the whole thing was a remarkable coincedence. I am starting to believe there are no real coincedences in life.”
