October 30, 1964

Animal Reaction Feature:
A herd of about 50 cows made noise and ran when an object approached slowly at low altitude and hovered overhead.  The object had a brilliant red light that lit the fields and the banks of a stream.  After a few minutes, the object accelerated and disappeared, and the cows quieted down.

Joan Woodward, Animal Reaction Specialist:
Just after midnight, four business men on a night fishing trip saw the object described above.  The men hid behind a car to keep from being trampled or swept into the river by the disturbed cattle

The presence or absence of sound from the object is not addressed.  No EM effects or physiological effects were reported.
