Number Witnesses Interviewed: One
Description: This report is suspect because the witness supplied virtually no details. He said that a saw a big UFO in the mountains taking a deer. It appears that the man does not write very good English so this could be part of the reason for his brief report.
Investigator’s Notes: I cannot reach the witness via email as he provided a bad or expired email address. I left a message on his voice-mail, but have not yet received a response. Without more information this sighting cannot be investigated. Given the information provided below I consider this case to be hoax.
