Right Over Farmers
UFO ROUNDUP Volume 6, Number 13

"Felix Rodriguez and Noris Lozada complained to police that in the early morning hours of Wednesday, March 21, 2001, they heard a noise coming from the chickens they keep in the backyard of their residence located in the Bonest sector of the barrio Miradero" in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico "and 26 dead birds were found in the dawn hours." "Officer Wilson Montes of the Mayaguez police district responded to the scene where the dead chickens were found while Carlos Diaz and Ferdinand Avila of the Recinto Universitario de Mayaguwz (RUM) examined the animals carefully and even took one of them to perform a necropsy and establish a cause of death." "Diaz told (the Puerto Rican newspaper) Primera Hora that it could be the handiwork of an ape weighing between 12 and 15 pounds, given that primate hair was found near the chicken corpses." "Furthermore, the prints of a two-legged, hooved animal were found in the backyard, and one of the chickens displayed a bite mark from a rounded tooth in its breast." "The residents' backyard is near the Mayaguez Zoological Gardens." Diaz "explained that the scenario was not compatible with the attack of a wild dog but rather with the presence of a primate since the dead chickens were aligned next to each other, single file, and were not eaten." "Several weeks ago, another resident of Mayaguez's barrio Miradero identified as Rodriguez Lozada complained to Officer Montes, who has become a 'Chupacabra researcher' as a result of years of investigating such cases, that she had seen one. Last year, another resident of barrio Miradero complained that she had seen an ape looking into her window. It later turned out that apes had been jumping the fence at the Mayaguez zoo and stealing bananas and other fruit from the homes of neighbors. (Editor's Note: A similar case occurred a few years ago near the Monkey Jungle just south of Miami, Florida.) Montes's investigation is continuing.

On Monday, March 12, 2001, at 2 a/m., two men spotted a dazzling UFO near the intersection of Routes 1 and 172 in Caguas, Puerto Rico. The two witnesses, men named Serrano and Leon, were sitting on a porch in the barrio Beatriz of Caguas, facing the intersection, "when they saw a bright light heading towards them from the mountains near Aguas Buenas and over Highway (Route) 1." "The object's brightness increased as it approached. It flew at low altitude over a farm located some 15 meters (50 feet) from where the witnesses sat. The object was flying from north to south, and then vanished over Cerro Las Pinas (hill)." "The witnesses did not notice any unusual smells related to the event, but reported that the sighting left an odd taste in their mouths, like 'holding a battery between one's lips.' They also heard an imperceptible buzzing sound , like that of bees, which accompanied the event." Strangest of all, Serran and Leon saw that the object "appeared to have something like luminous mirrors clinging to the bottom section which seemed to rotate. They estimated that the size of the object was 10 meters (33 feet) in length." The men complained that the UFO's brightness was "painful to look at" and therefore could not make out any definite shape.

On Sunday, March 18, 2001, at 7:43 p.m., Eben Lekson was at his parents' home in the Niu Valley near Honolulu, the state capital of Hawaii, when he spotted a strange bright light in the sky. I was looking up towards the sky because it was such a clear night," Eben reported, "and I saw an object approaching from the west. So I swung around and saw another object approaching from the east. And then I saw yet another object approaching from the north." "Immediately I told my parents, who came outside and saw the objects. I called my friend, whose parents are astronomers, and they were stumped because they had not heard of any meteor shower or the (International) Space Station passing over." Also it was not a plane because it had no lights flashing, and their altitude was at least just outside the atmosphere," about 100 miles or 160 kilometers overhead. (Email Form Report)
On Thursday, March 15, 2001, just after 9 p.m., residents of Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, not far from Pittsburgh, were "jolted by a loud mysterious boom. Residents from Level Green, Pa. and Harrison, City, Pa. in Penn Township reported hearing and feeling what appeared to be an explosion." "Emergency personnel responded to the area after Westmoreland County 911 began receiving reports from local residents. The event reportedly caused local people to run outside to see what had caused the event." "No natural gas leaks were found by the local utility firm. The National Weather Service in Pittsburgh had located some lightning in the area between 8 and 9 p.m. but to my knowledge no active thunderstorms were occurring in the area at that time." On Monday, March 19, 2001, at 7:50 p.m., a UFO was sighted in Homer City, Pa., southwest of Pittsburgh "A witness observed an odd light source in the sky towards the south and was described as 'a wide band of bright light,' This band of light began to move east. It then made a clockwise loop and it continued to rotate until it had returned to the point at which it had started the loop movement. At this point, the band immediately changed and became just a white dot, a steady white light which quickly turned to a red color. The red light then began a series of 10 to 12 zigzagging maneuvers as it moved towards the southeast. Suddenly the red light vanished." (Many thanks to Pennsylvania ufologist Stan Gordon for these reports.)
