Animal Effect Cases
Animal Reaction Feature:
Three outdoor dogs, ranging from 40-50 pounds, were described as normally
“frisky” and as the types of dogs to go after something aggressively. One
night these dogs were observed sitting in a small circle under a glowing
ball. They appeared nervously happy, their necks stretched upward,
excited, but they would not break their sit. The glowing ball was
5-7 feet off the ground and over the dogs’ heads. It was the size
of a softball and the intensity of a Christmas light. Even after the
light rose and blinked out, the dogs continued their sitting behavior.
Joan Woodward, Animal Reaction Specialist:
Arriving home about 10 p.m., a couple noticed a red glow in their yard,
and observed the dogs and glowing red ball described above. The wife
finally walked toward the ball, and it moved up to about 25 feet and blinked
out, though the dogs acted as if it were still there.
About 15 minutes later, the husband went to feed the dogs, and saw the light
as it flew over the house, into the backyard. It flew into an
adjacent field for about 500 feet where it appeared to land and vanished
No sound, EM effect, or physiological effect reported.
