Animal Effect Cases
Custer, South Dakota
October 11, 1994
Animal Reaction Feature:
A man came out of his garage to see why the neighborhood dogs were barking
and saw an object pass overhead. The dogs were barking and whining as
the object passed overhead, and the witness thought they were responding to
its presence. He could see no other reason for their behavior.
Joan Woodward, Animal Reaction Specialist:
This witness, 62, retired, two years of police law in his background, heard
the dogs and saw the object at about 7:20 p.m. on a clear night. As
the object passed overhead, it turned up on its side and flew south, disappearing
over a mountain range.
Independently, a MUFON Field Investigator, 44, and her husband, 41, forester,
and her daughter, 20, saw 3 star-like white lights, strobing in sequence,
whose formation changed from a row to a triangle and back to a row before
disappearing [possibly corresponding to the object turning on its side as
described by the above witness?ójw]. They chased the lights 2-3 miles
before losing them over hills. They estimated the formation as
600 feet across, their altitude as 1000 feet, and their speed at about 100
mph. The lights moved north to south. The area in which
this occurred was described as town, woods, and prairie.
No sound, no EM effects, and no physiological effects were reported.
