A four-year-old child told her mother that one late night 3 "frogmen" like figures came in through the bedroom window encased in a mist. She could see their large eyes and what appeared to be greenish skin. They poke her arms, legs and belly. She tries to wake her mother that sleeps in the bed with her but is unable to. The dog in the room does not make a sound. The mother reportedly heard noises, in the bushes outside the window and recalled that the night was "unusually" quiet. She was paralyzed and was unable to recall any other details. A scorch mark and burnt foliage was found on the ground in the yard.

The witness was jogging in a field with some of her pets when she noticed a crowd of people in a field. At first she thought that it was a group of young boys playing but his dogs broke loose and ran toward them. She thought it was strange since his pets were usually calmed and gentle. She ran after them and saw them run right through the crowd towards what appeared to be a sort of hovering disc-shaped object. The witness ran up to a 13-year old boy in the crowd and asked him what was going on, his replied was, " I am not sure". Suddenly a blinding light flashed as the witness touched the craft. She suddenly woke up, thinking it was a dream feeling a cold sensation on his back. She was lying on some kind of hard table surrounded by strange creatures with large heads shaped like watermelons. Their eyes were like bugs and the skin was grayish green. They had strange utensils or apparatuses that poked the witness causing her skin to burn. She tried to scream but was so terrified that he was unable to utter a sound. About an hour later she was removed from the craft onto the same field, but a different location. She watched the craft as it shot away. It was about midnight. She heard a bark and found one of his dogs, the other one he did not find until a week later.

The witness had just finished work and was driving home when he reached an area by a small lake, noticing something walking on the road he put on his high beams. He saw a figure walked out from the side of the road and stopped on the middle of the road for a second. It looked like it was grayish in color and it was walking on two legs. The feet were small with brown/black areas on the side. It wobbled across the road like an ape. When it reached the other side it stopped and looked at the witness waving its skinny arms. There appeared to be lights behind it. The witness described it as about 6 ft tall, with foot long pointy ears, the eyes were dark black, with no apparent nose. It was cold and the witness did not see any "breathe" coming out of its small mouth. The mouth had a red silver strip on top. As the witness drove away he looked back to see the creature standing on the road and the woods behind lit up like daytime.

The witness was returning home from work on a very cold morning and for the past two nights had been seeing a brightly colored moving object in the western sky. On this date he saw the object closer to him, it appeared and disappeared as it approached the witness. It hovered about 100 ft from the car. The witness exited the car and saw the object, green in color with a large frosted white dome on top. The craft descended to about 20 ft above the ground and the witness could see movement inside the dome shape on top. He saw only vague shapes but something was definitely moving inside. At this point the witness entered his vehicle and drove away at high speed. The object then made a swing above the car and moved off to the east at a high rate of speed.

The witness (a teacher) was in her room grading some papers when all of the sudden she noticed a bright light outside her apartment. She stepped outside to see what it could be when she suddenly felt a warm sensation come over her body. Her next memory was on being alone, lying on a cold hard table with figures wearing doctor-like masks standing around her. The figures were at least 8 ft tall. They appeared to be "slimy" since the witness was touched in several private places by the humanoids. They stuck a needle in the witness, but she felt no pain. In the background there were more figures that appeared to be the female version of the other ones. The humanoids spoke in an unknown language that could not be understood. The speech resembled a series of clicks and mumbled speech. The room grew cold and felt "something" being pulled out of her. (She believes it was her appendix). She lost consciousness again at this point. She woke up later and found a scar on her side.

Alerted by the sounds of his barking dogs, 62-year old Patricio Saldaño, armed with a flashlight went out to investigate. He noticed that the dogs were furiously running back & forth from one area of the yard to the other. He then saw standing only about 10 meters from him a huge hairy figure standing on two legs. It resembled a giant ape, which stared at the witness with large bright red eyes. The creature was silent and moved its huge arms in an apparent attempt to scare the dogs away, which curiously did not attack. The creature had long sharp claws that reflected the light in the darkness. His wife and two young children also saw the bizarre creature, which disappeared into the darkness. Several days earlier a dead calf had been found dead and partially eaten.
