MORE CATTLE MUTILATED
IN NORTHERN ARGENTINA

      "A veterinarian stated that there were several
mutilation cases" in Argentina's northern Misiones
province.  "Julio Frette is the only professional who
presented a report on the event, which occurred during
the month of August (2002) in Concepcion de la Sierra."
      "'There were four more cases that were never made
known,' he remarked.  He added that they were not
reported due to the ignorance of the parties who made the
discoveries, and that the mystery has not been solved."
      "Three weeks after the discovery of a mutilated cow
in the vicinity of Concepcion de la Sierra, veterinarian
Julio Frette stated that in fact four similar cases had
been recorded in the province's southern reaches but
which were not made known."
      "The veterinarian, a resident of the aforementioned
community, was the only one to present a detailed report
to the National Health and Agroalimentary Quality Service
(Spanish acronym: SENASA)."
      "Frette explained that he did not witness the other
findings, but that the events are known to local
residents."
      "'At the town of Apostoles, in the Las Tunas
wilderness, a producer (rancher--J.T.) found a mutilated
animal and set it on fire,' he remarked."
      "The case which became public is the one Frette
participated in and occurred on August 8, 2002.  On that
day, a zebu hybrid cow was found dead, and strange
incisions were found on its body in Lot 245 of the
Concepciones neighborhood, on a small farm only a few
meters (yards) from the city limits."
      "The animal, which was about to give birth, had
disappeared four days earlier (August 4, 2002) and,
according to the report, suffered the mutilation of its
internal organs."
      "'The absence of the muscles of the left side of the
jaw is evident, leaving the maxillary bare of all tissue.
Absence of larynx, pharynx and upper portion of the
esophagus and trachea.  Absence of ocular orb and left
ear.  Tongue was not found but the hyloides bone was
present and perfectly dessicated.  Absence of mammary
gland; the abdominal cavity presented an opening
corresponding to the region where the calf that was soon
to be born could not be found.  Absence of the rectum and
the large intestine, genitals, with the dexterity of how
said organs were extracted being a stand-out,' said the
report."
      "What drew the attention of those who saw the
carcass--as in other cases--was that one of the incisions
was perfectly cauterized.  'An incision measuring
approximately 20 centimeters (8 inches) was made in the
region of the brisket, showing red tissue as though it
had been dead for only hours, and within approximately
ten minutes, those present attested that the tissue
rapidly acquired an almost shiny black coloration.'"
      "Witnesses to the event, aside from the
veterinarian, were the owner of Lot 245, Emilio
Fernandez, cattle merchant Osvaldo Kreclevich (the
animal's owner--S.C.) and (Argentinian) police officers."
      "On August 19 (2002), "the carcass gave off such an
intense odor that it was noticeable 70 meters (231 feet)
away, says the report.  No sign of a struggle or self-
defense by the animal were noticed at the site.  Although
no new cases were recorded, these elements led Frette to
believe that the mystery is still unsolved."  (See

UFO AND MUTILATIONS
REPORTED IN URUGUAY

      On Saturday, November 2, 2002, in a rural area near
Laguna del Sauce in Uruguay's Maldonado province, "a man
who works in the (rain) forest claims to have seen a V-
shaped object with two white lights on it.  It was moving
backwards."
      "His mates didn't give much importance to what he
said."
      "But two days later (Monday, November 4, 2002), they
found several mutilated calves" near that location.  "It
seemed as if something had extracted the flesh and the
organs from the animals.  There were no brains, no
tongues, no flesh, and the cowhide was affected only in
the place where the anus should be."
      "On Friday, November 8, 2002, a similar (mutilation)
case took place in the Establecimento Stella Maris, near
Laguna del Sauce.  For their workers, the cases are
related to extraterrestrial visitation, although
government authorities have established that strange
mutilations are due to a kind of wasp that could attack
cows.  And in some other cases, they put the blame on a
little red mouse that lives in the woods."  (Muchas

CHILE'S ARMY CORDONS OFF
UNUSUAL CROP CIRCLE

      "A circular imprint measuring 30 meters (100 feet)
in diameter was found by military personnel from the La
Concepcion Regiment based in Lonquimay, in Chile's Ninth
Region," near the city of Angol.
      "The troops isolated an area consisting of pasture
fields and trees in a radius of 1,200 meters (3,960
feet)."  The area was declared "Off-Limits" to both
civilians and to the Carabineros (Chile's national
police--J.T.).
      "In a telephone conversation from the city of Angol,
ufologist and retired Carabinero Raul Gajardo said, 'It
was approximately two months ago (September 2002) that a
mounted patrol from the Carabinero barracks at Liucura, a
dependency of the 5th Sheriff's Office in Curacautan,
established that in a location some three hours away from
Angol there were a considerable number of (Chilean)
military personnel belonging to the La Concepcion
Regiment in Lonquimay."
      "The reason for the show of force was the discovery
of a large burnt patch of grass.  The phenomenon extended
for over a diameter of 30 meters (100 feet) with burned
tree trunks and a substance similar to whitewash (calcium
carbonate--J.T.) could be observed."
      "'At equidistant points of the circle there were
four circles measuring 15 centimeters (6 inches) which
were not scorched.  They are like four legs at the center
of the circle.  What is strange is that the snow never
got to cover the circles.  The exact location of the site
shall be kept confidential in order to research it
carefully,' Gajardo said."
      "A strange fact was that the measurements made by
the military showed that a Geiger counter had recorded a
high level of radiation in the area."
      "Another interesting fact is that the Carabineros
were denied entry to the site, while a member of the
(Chilean) Army's upper echelon visited the area by
helicopter."  (See Terra Chile for November 15, 2002,

CIGAR-SHAPED UFO SIGHTED
IN SOUTHERN BRAZIL

      A silvery cigar-shaped UFO was sighted in several
cities in Brazil's state of Rio Grande do Sul, located
900 kilometers (540 miles) southwest of Rio de Janeiro.
      On Friday, November 1, 2002, the silver UFO "was
seen moving relatively rapidly over the cities of
Gravatai, Cachoeirinha and Canoas in Rio Grande do Sul.
Hundreds of people saw the bright object."
      The same day, at 4:35 p.m., the silver UFO was
spotted in Praia do Cassino, a town on the South Atlantic
shore, 100 kilometers (60 miles) south of Porto Alegre,
the state capital.
      Eyewitness Eduardo Enderle Oliveira reported, "I was
playing ball on the beach with my son and his friend when
the boys sighted something unusual in the sky.  My son's
friend pointed it out to me.  At first it looked like a
bird making a sharp curve in the air, but then I looked
closer and saw that it was a metallic fuselage in the
form of a cigar.  There were no wings.  I called the
attention of several beachgoers to this object, which
flew at a very high altitude overhead.  There was a
brilliant gleam in the sky, most likely a reflection of
the sun, and, as it departed, it resembled a brilliant
sphere about the size of Venus, which gradually
diminished in size."
      Elsewhere in Brazil, on Monday, November 18, 2002, a
UFO appeared over the mid-sized city of Casimiro de
Abreu, located 175 kilometers (105 miles) northeast of
Rio de Janeiro.  The object, seen by dozens of
eyewitnesses, was videotaped by Sergio Chapelin, a local
resident.
     On Friday, November 22, 2002, at 8:50 p.m.,
"witnesses observed for a number of seconds the
overflight of a ring-shaped object with alternating
yellow, white and blue lights around the rim.  The
colored lights alternated rapidly.  The object flew from
the northeast to the southeast" over Santos, the port
city serving the state of Sao Paulo.  "The unusual object
was seen by hundreds of people along the Rua Alexandre
Herculano in the bairro Boqueirinho (neighborhood)" in
Santos.  (See the Brazilian newspaper O Globo for
November 19, 2002.  Muito obrigado a Eduardo Enderle
Oliveira, Rodrigo Branco e Ufologia Brasileira por eso
casos.)


MORE UFOs SIGHTED
IN MALAYSIA

      On Friday, November 15, 2002, at 10:15 p.m., Ahmad
Rithaudin was in the town of Kampung Seri Kendong, Alor
Gajah district, Melaka state in western Malaysia when he
saw something unusual in the night sky.
      "It was a clear night," Ahmad reported, "An object
was spotted in the landing approach flight path normally
used by aircraft approaching Kuala Lumpur International
Airport.  (Kuala Lumpur is eight minutes flying time from
here--A.R.)  That night, aircraft were using a different
direction to land.  The object was stationary for the
first five minutes and then began to move eastward.  It
changed altitude and rose again to its original
altitude."
      "I called my wife, my brother and his wife and
watched the object.  Right afterward, it moved towards
the south and disappeared.  Altogether we witnessed it
for about 15 minutes."
      Ahmad described the UFO as "an orange light, ball-
shaped and glowing and no sound.  It was at 3,000 meters
(10,000 feet), slow-moving and increased its speed before
departure."
      Kuala Lumpur is Malaysia's capital.  The Southeast
Asian country has had several UFO incidents since October
1, 2002.
      "An unidentified flying object has been spotted over
the skies of Kota Kinabalu," a Malaysian port city on the
northeastern tip of the island of Borneo, "puzzling air
traffic controllers, who said the craft was bigger than
an airliner."
      "The UFO was first spotted on radar screens, but
later there were naked-eye sightings even in broad
daylight."
      On October 5, 2002, a closed-circuit TV camera at
Terminal 2 of Kota Kinabalu International Airport
captured the image of "a cigar-shaped object.  Air
traffic controllers were surprised because the craft was
flying at great speed..  The controllers were tracking a
Fokker airliner taking off when they noticed the large
UFO."
      "Air traffic controllers knew for certain that there
were no commercial or private planes in the skies at that
time--at least none that were scheduled."
      "On (Tuesday) October 22 (2002), Sabah TV-3
cameraman Kassem Mahmun took (video) of a Boeing 737
taking off.  He then noticed an object in the distance,
that appeared at a higher altitude but was stationary."
      "Kassem said the object suddenly disappeared just a
few seconds after he noticed it."
      "The (Malaysian) Department of Civil Aviation has
yet to given an explanation for the incidents, except for
saying that it could not identify them for sure."  (See
the Sabah TV-3 News broadcast for November 19, 2002.

reports.)


STAR-LIKE UFO SEEN OVER
INDIA'S PUNJAB STATE

      On Wednesday, November 21, 2002, at 6:15 a.m.,
eyewitness Dinesh Hukmani reported, "Early in the
morning, when it was still dark, I went outside to
collect the newspaper" at his home in Mohali, a town in
the foothills of the Himalayas, in India's Punjab state.
"The sky was clear with a full moon on the western
horizon and a lot of bright shining stars."
      "Suddenly I noticed a bright object, looking like a
star but much brighter, moving away from the moon in an
easterly direction.  It moved fast and was gone in a
minute or so.  I called my wife, and she saw it, too."
      "I also managed to videotape the object, but it is
not very clear and the image is moving a lot due to
camera shake due to moving (zooming--J.T.) in.  Height
and speed were difficult to ascertain.  I did not have to
look up to see it.  It was right in front of us."  (Email

CIGAR-SHAPED UFO SEEN IN
BUCKINGHAMSHIRE, UK

      On Monday, November 18, 2002, at 8 p.m., motorist
Colin Hoskins had a UFO encounter while driving in
Buckinghamshire, England, UK.
      Colin reported, "We were driving from Slough,
Berkshire on the (motorway) A412, (also known as)
Uxbridge Road, towards Iver Heath, Buckinghamshire, and
witnessed an extremely bright light on the right-hand
side of the road in Langley Park."
      "At the time, I thought this was strange, as the
light was approximately 40 feet (12 meters) high and
above a wooded area," i.e. a country park.  "Driving out
of Iver Heath towards Uxbridge, we saw the long object
with three white lights equally spaced down the length
and one white flashing light on the rear.  The object was
travelling at what I would guess to be about 150 miles
per hour (250 kilometers per hour) towards the east."
      "I'm under the impression that all aircraft must
have a red flashing beam.  Can you verify this?  I am not
a believer in UFOs, but I would like to have any possible
explanation for this event, as it's made me look into UFO
Web sites for the first time."  (Email Form Report)


WOMAN SHOOTS A VIDEO OF
A UFO IN ASKER, NORWAY

      "Helene Solberg glanced out her window on a dark
wintry afternoon earlier this week and saw something she
won't soon forget.  Luckily, her family's video camera
was close at hand."
      "Helene Solberg shot a video of what she calls a UFO
on Tuesday," November 19, 2002.
      "Solberg, who lives in a village of the same name in
Asker, west of Oslo (the capital of Norway--J.T.), first
called her husband while marvelling at the comet-like
flying object that soared through the late-afternoon
sky."
      "It was just after 2 p.m., when dusk already starts
settling over southern Norway at this time of year, when
Solberg noticed the object with the long bright tail.
She excitedly called her husband Stig Solberg, who
reminded her that their video camera was lying on a table
in the living room.  Just the night before, the couple
had tried to capture video of the Leonid meteor shower."
      "Helene Solberg then grabbed the video camera and
started shooting.  The entire episode lasted about eight
minutes, with three minutes of it captured on tape,
before the unidentified flying object disappeared from
view."
      "'Can I explain what it was?  Absolutely not,' Stig
Solberg told (the Norwegian newspaper) Aftenposten
Thursday night after showing the video."
      "He said he determined that the comet-like object
came out of the west and disappeared to the south.  He
also sent the videotape to the Astrophysics Department at
the University of Oslo, where a professor thought the
object may have been a plane."
      "Solberg disagrees.  'It absolutely did not look
like a plane,' he said, 'When we look out the window in
the other direction, we sometimes see planes.  But we
have never seen a plane in the direction where my wife
was filming.'" (See the newspaper Aftenposten for
November 22, 2002.  Many thanks to Jim Hickman for this
newspaper article.)


ORANGE UFOs HOVER OVER
SUBURBS OF MELBOURNE

      On Saturday, November 16, 2002, just after 2 a.m.,
"Wayne A. Winter and Adin Monks took a video of three
orange lights in a triangular form" that was hovering
over a mountain in Chirnside Park in Lilydale, a suburb
of Melbourne, the capital of Australia's Victoria state.
"The object flew around for 20 minutes before
disappearing completely."
      Twenty-one hours later, at 11 p.m., two orange UFOs
"approached from the north" and hovered over Mill Park,
another Melbourne suburb.  Eyewitness Sean D. reported,
"The two balls originally looked like a plane from a
distance.  Then they started to move in a 360-degree
circle and were crisscrossing each other.  Then one
disappeared and then reappeared and went at a slow speed
with no sound.  Yellow-orange, like balls of light, the
two of them.  Maybe 500 meters (1,650 feet) off the
ground and going 50 kilometers per hour (30 miles per
hour) in speed."  (See the Sunday Herald-Sun of Melbourne
for November 17, 2002.  Many thanks to Sean D. for these
reports.)


FOUR MYSTERY LIGHTS SEEN
IN TIPP CITY, OHIO

      Donnie Link, 21, of Tipp City, Ohio reports, "I
believe I witnessed a UFO sighting last night (Sunday,
November 17, 2002) from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.  First I live in
a tiny town called Tipp City (population 9,221), located
about 15 miles (25 kilometers) north of Dayton.  I
stepped out on my porch to smoke a cigarette, and I saw
something I've only dreamed of seeing."
      "There were four disk-like objects floating
around...They were making a perfect formation, almost
like an oval, and they would meet in the center at the
same time and then go out in their pattern and meet again
in the center every two seconds or so.  They were very
low to the ground, almost as if they wanted me to see
them.  They were in the clouds.  That's why I saw the
lights reflecting.  I didn't actually see the objects,
just the lights."
      "But now is the most peculiar thing--the definite
reason why I know they were UFOs.  As I walked towards it
to get a better look, it moved away, keeping the same
distance between me and it, but keeping formation at the
same height from the ground as before.  I even broke into
a full-body sprint, and it moved steadily away without
much effort.  But as I walked backwards, back to my
house, it came back with me.  I was freezing my butt off
to see them, but I feel this was a once-in-a-lifetime
vision."  (Email Form Report)


TWO WOMEN SPOT A UFO
IN GRAND PRAIRIE, TEXAS

      On Saturday, November 16, 2002, at 2:55 a.m.,
Katherine McConnell reports, "I was driving on Highway
360 North in" Grand Prairie, Texas (population 127,427).
"The passenger in my car looked out the driver's-side
window and said, 'Look!  What is that?'"
      "Being near Dallas-Fort Worth airport, I just
naturally assumed it was an airplane, looking only with a
quick glance.  My friend then pointed out that the object
was not moving at all.  It was just hovering very low to
the ground.  This time I took a better, longer look and
realized it was just hovering."
      "At first it looked like a plane, but it had two
really big head-lights that were sort of aiming towards
the ground.  As we continued driving at about 25 miles
per hour (40 kilometers per hour), I noticed the vehicle
(UFO) made an extremely slow turn towards the east.  It
didn't turn in the usual manner like a plane or a
helicopter.  I noticed that it did have a red and a green
light.  The vehicle moved extremely slow.  It was
nighttime, but, from what I could tell, it (the UFO) was
probably a dull gray.  I was unsure about the shape, but
my passenger said that it looked to her like kind of a
round shape.  The height from the ground was
approximately 60 to 80 feet (18 to 24 meters).  It could
have touched a treetop."  (Email Form Report)


STRANGE CATTLE DEATHS
REPORTED IN ETHIOPIA

      "Farmers in an Ethiopian village are keeping a close
eye on their cows after a local hippo herd developed a
taste for meat, devouring eight cows in the past eight
weeks, the (Ethiopian) government press reported Friday,"
November 22, 2002.
      "The people of Ginbo Woreda village in the southern
province of Kaffa," about 400 kilometers (250 miles)
south-southwest of Addis Ababa, the national capital,
"told local police that the normally herbivorous hippos
had taken to devouring cows and calves, the Amharic daily
(newspaper) Addis Zemen reported."
      "Local animal health and wildlife protection expert
Alemayehu Alemu said the hippopotami's (plural for
hippopotamus--J.T.) unusual behavior may have been
provoked by humans."
      "Alemu said that pregnant hippos tended to react
aggressively to acts of provocation around delivery time
but cautioned that the 'bizarre phenomenon' required a
thorough study for a 'scientific explanation.'"
      World-famous cryptozoologist Loren Coleman, noting
that a hippopotamus is unlikely to switch from being a
herbivore to a carnivore, speculated that the cattle
deaths might have been caused by a mokele-mbembe, an
enigmatic creature, similar to a small brontosaurus,
which has been seen occasionally in central Africa, most
often along the Congo River.  (See the Ethiopian
newspaper Addis Zemen for November 21, 2002.  Also the
South African Press Association report for November 22,
2002.  Many thanks to Loren Coleman for this newspaper
article.)
(Editor's Comment: Ethiopia's Omo River empties into Lake
Rudolf in neighboring Kenya.  Perhaps a Nessie-type "lake
monster" swam upstream and is feeding on stray cattle
near Ginbo Woreda.)


 From the UFO Files...

1902: STRANGE CRUISE OF THE
           BANNOCKBURN

      When people of the Lake Superior region sit around
and talk about ghost ships, there's one whose name
inevitably comes up.  She is truly the "Queen of the
Ghost Fleet," the Flying Dutchman of Lake Superior, and
the mere mention of her name is enough to send a shudder
through the toughest sailor in the taverns of Duluth,
Minnesota or Superior, Wisconsin.
      She's the S.S. Bannockburn, and she disappeared on
Lake Superior exactly one hundred years ago.
      As author Frederick Stonehouse points out, "The
classic Lake Superior ghost ship story is that of the
245-foot, 1,620-ton Canadian steel steamer Bannockburn."
      The story begins in Middlesborough, Scotland, UK in
1893, when workmen put the finishing touches on a new
breed of ship known as a canaller.  The vessel's
dimensions were specifically designed to let her pass
through the Welland Canal in southern Ontario, Canada.
      "Rated A-1 by Lloyd's of London insurance, she was
owned by the Montreal Transportation Company of Quebec.
Her captain was George Woods.  His brother, John (Woods),
commanded the Rosemount, Bannockburn's sister ship."
      "On November 20, 1902, the Bannockburn departed Port
Arthur, Ontario  (now Thunder Bay, Ont.--J.T.) bound for
Midland, Ontario on Lake Huron, with a cargo of 85,000
bushels of wheat."
      "The following afternoon (November 21, 1902) she was
sighted on Lake Superior by the upbound steamer Algonquin
southeast of Passage Island and northeast of Keewenaw
Point (on Michigan's Upper Peninsula--J.T.).  The weather
was hazy, and the Bannockburn was bucking a good
headwind, but, to the crew of the Algonquin, all appeared
normal."
      "The Bannockburn must have been a majestic sight
this fine day because" Captain James McMaugh of the
Algonquin "told his mate to take a look at her.
McMaugh's remark caused some confusion in the pilot-
house."
      "The Bannockburn was no longer there."
      "McMaugh was the only one who saw her.  He may have
felt silly pointing at a blank horizon.  The mate may
have reserved some doubts about McMaugh.  But no one
suspected the Bannockburn of sinking.  McMaugh saw no
signs of distress, and a ship cannot sink in the time it
takes to look through a pilot-house window.  McMaugh was
confused by what he saw--or what he thought he saw.  He
was not sure what had happened."
      "One minute she was in plain view.  After turning
away for several minutes, he looked back again, but she
was gone, vanished from sight.  Did she sink while the
captain turned away, or just fade into the gray mist?"
      Darkness fell.  "Later that night, a storm rolled
across Lake Superior.  It wasn't the worst of storms, but
it was certainly a 'banger.'"
      In the northern reaches of Lake Superior, at about 9
p.m., crewmen aboard the S.S. Huronic, a Canadian steamer
of the Northern Navigation Line,
spotted mysterious bright lights passing south of them.
      Strange lights were also seen from the beaches at
Rossport and Schreiber, Ontario, on the big lake's north
shore.
      When the Bannockburn "failed to reach Sault Sainte
Marie (Michigan), a massive search was launched.  Three
tugs combed the lake, looking for any sign of the missing
vessel...Stories circulated that she was sighted ashore
near Michipicoten Island and other north shore locations.
Investigations proved them all false."
      "A single battered life jacket was found on the
beach at Grand Marais, Michigan by a patrolling
surfman...One especially intriguing wreckage story was
the legendary 'Bannockburn oar.'   The tale goes that 18
months after the loss (May 1904) a single oar, carefully
wrapped in a worn tarpaulin, was found by a grizzled old
trapper on the desolate Michigan shore.  The word
Bannockburn was scraped crudely into the wooden shaft."
      "As soon as a year afterward (1903), Lake Superior
sailors reported seeing this Flying Dutchman of Lake
Superior steaming past Caribou Island, plowing on for the
Soo to complete her unfinished voyage.  Others said that
she appeared 'as a ghostly apparition of ice, scudding
through the gloom.'  Another writer stated that
'sometimes at night when the chill north wind sweeps
across the swollen bosom of Lake Superior and the
stinging ice devils fill the air, the lookout on some
lonely point calls loudly to his companions and points to
where he imagines the Bannockburn, all white with ice and
ghostly in the darkness, slipping through the black
mystery of the lake.'"
      For sailors who have seen the Bannockburn up close,
the experience is unforgettable.  "Some beery-eyed
mariners even said they could see the skeletal faces of
crewmen staring blankly out the pilothouse windows!"
      "Regardless of the legend, the fact remains that
Bannockburn and her crew of 22 went missing on Lake
Superior" the night of November 21, 1902.  "To this day
she has never been found nor has the cause of her loss
been determined.  The Bannockburn has truly joined the
fleet of the lost."  (See the books Ghost Ships of the
