Animal Effect Cases
Sandy Hook, Connecticut
March 31, 1983
Animal Reaction Feature:
At 8:30 pm, Thunder, a 175-pound Great Dane, “went crazy” and barked for 3
minutes. His owner, Cindy Tillison, went to see what was going on.
Thunder was standing at the sliding doors in the kitchen barking toward the
woods. When Tillison looked, she saw a huge V-shaped object. The
object remained for 20 minutes and, throughout this time, Thunder appeared
frightened and barked continuously with ears straight up. The next day
he refused to go out.
Joan Woodward, Animal Reaction Feature:
The V-shaped object was glowing a very bright auburn color and had lights
similar to headlights but much larger. When Tillison flicked her floodlights
on and off, the object appeared to move in response, after which she left
the lights off. During the 20 minutes of observation, the object projected
a big, steady beam of light, seemingly from its center. The beam was
very wide, estimated a little less than half the size of the object.
The big round lights did change, going off [and on?—jw] and changing colors.
The object disappeared when the witness was not looking.
No sound was mentioned. No EM effects or physiological effects were
