UFO Cow Abductions- Unproven! & Pending Investigation!
Summary of eRumor:
This is a video posted on YouTube allegedly showing a cow being levitated from a pasture by an unidentified flying object. Are aliens in UFO’s invading our planet and plucking cows from fields?
This eRumor is unproven and could be a possible conspiracy theory.
The TruthOrFiction.Com team is looking into this, and we will post findings on this page when they develop.
We were able to find a website called CowAbduction.com that offered photos and information. The website said, “Alien cow abduction is a serious problem. Countless bovines have disappeared from dairy farms everywhere.”
CowAbduction.com also said that the number of incidents are increasing and its FAQ page said that the missing cow incidents seem to be concentrated in California.
According to “Investigations On Current Extraterrestrial Activity In Area 51” by Susan Wright, reports of bovine abductions by visitors from outer space is not new in United States. In her book, Wright cites an account found in a textbook by the United States Air Force Academy on introductory space science and unidentified flying objects. On April 21, 1897, a well-to-do farmer, Alexander Hamilton of Le Roy, Kan., reported that his cattle were attacked two nights earlier by a 300 foot, cigar-shaped ship that hovered 30 feet above his livestock. The ship took one of his heifers. The next day Hamilton’s neighbor, Link Thomas, found the heifer’s hide, head and legs in his field. Hamilton’s account was even supported by 12 trustworthy citizens who swore to his character on a signed affidavit. About 60 years later, extraterrestrial encounter investigators discovered that Alexander Hamilton was a member of a “liars’ club,” and the account was determined to be a hoax.
