An Account of Animal Telepathy

This account of supposed 'animal telepathy' was described by the a well-known author H. Rider Haggard (King Solomon's Mines / She) and appeared in the London Times on July 21, 1904:

Ditchingham, July 11th.

Perhaps you will think with me that the following circumstances are worthy of record, if only for their scientific interest. It is principally because of this interest that, as such stories should not be told anonymously, after some hesitation I have made up my mind to publish them over my own name, although I am well aware that by so doing I may expose myself to a certain amount of ridicule and disbelief.

On the night of Saturday, July 9, I went to bed about 12:30, and suffered from what I took to be a nightmare. I was awakened by my wife's voice calling to me from her own bed upon the other side of the room. As I awoke, the nightmare itself, which had been long and vivid, faded from my brain. All I could remember of it was a sense of awful oppression and of desperate and terrified struggling for life such as the act of drowning would probably involve. But between the time that I heard my wife's voice and the time that my consciousness answered to it, or so it seemed to me, I had another dream. I dreamed that a black retriever dog, a most amiable and intelligent beast named Bob, which was the property of my eldest daughter, was lying on its side among brushwood, or rough growth of some sort, by water. My own personality in some mysterious way seemed to me to be arising from the body of the dog, which I knew quite surely to be Bob and no other, so much so that my head was against its head, which was lifted up at an unnatural angle. In my vision the dog was trying to speak to me in words, and, failing, transmitted to my mind in an undefined fashion the knowledge that it was dying. Then everything vanished, and I woke to hear my wife asking me why on earth I was making those horrible and weird noises. I replied that I had had a nightmare about a fearful struggle, and that I had dreamed that old Bob was in a dreadful way, and was trying to talk to me and to tell me about it. Finally, seeing that it was still quite dark, I asked what the time was. She said she did not know, and shortly afterwards I went to sleep again and was disturbed no more...

Thinking that the whole thing was nothing more than a disagreeable dream, I made no enquiries about the dog and never learned even that it was missing until that Sunday night, when my little girl, who was in the habit of feeding it, told me so. At breakfast time, I may add, nobody knew that it was gone, as it had been seen late on the previous evening. Then I remembered my dream, and the following day enquiries were set on foot.

To be brief, on the morning of Thursday, the 14th, my servant, Charles Bedingfield, and I discovered the body of the dog floating in the Waveney against a weir about a mile and a quarter away...

On Friday, the 15th, I was going into Bungay to offer a reward for the discovery of the persons who were supposed to have destroyed the dog in the fashion suggested in Mr. Mullane's first certificate, when at the level crossing on the Bungay road I was hailed by two platelayers, who are named respectively George Arterton and Harry Alger. These men informed me that the dog had been killed by a train, and took me on a trolly down to a certain open-work bridge which crosses the water between Ditchingham and Bungay, where they showed me evidences of its death. This is the sum of their evidence:

It appears that about 7 o'clock upon the Monday morning, very shortly after the first train had passed, in the course of his duties Harry Alger was on the bridge, where he found a dog's collar torn off and broken by the engine (since produced and positively identified as that worn by Bob), coagulated blood, and bits of flesh, of which remnants he cleaned the rails. On search also I personally found portions of black hair from the coat of a dog. On the Monday afternoon and subsequently his mate saw the body of the dog floating in the water beneath the bridge, whence it drifted down to the weir, it having risen with the natural expansion of gases, such as, in this hot weather, might be expected to occur within about 40 hours of death. It would seem that the animal must have been killed by an excursion train that left Ditchingham at 10.25 on Saturday night, returning empty from Harleston a little after 11. This was the last train which ran that night. No trains run on Sunday, and it is practically certain that it cannot have been killed on the Monday morning, for then the blood would have been still fluid. Also men who were working around when the 6.30 train passed must have seen the dog on the line (they were questioned by Alger at the time and had seen nothing), and the engine-driver in broad daylight would also have witnessed and made a report of the accident, of which in a dark night he would probably know nothing. Further, if it was living, the dog would almost certainly have come home during Sunday, and its body would not have risen so quickly from the bottom of the river, or presented the appearance it did on Thursday morning. From traces left upon the piers of the bridge it appears that the animal was knocked or carried along some yards by the train and fell into the brink of the water where reeds grow. Here, if it were still living,—and, although the veterinary thinks that death was practically instantaneous, its life may perhaps have lingered for a few minutes,—it must have suffocated and sunk, undergoing, I imagine, much the same sensations as I did in my dream, and in very similar surroundings to those that I saw therein —namely, amongst a scrubby growth at the edge of water.

Both in a judicial and a private capacity I have been accustomed all my life to the investigation of evidence, and, if we may put aside our familiar friend "the long arm of coincidence," which in this case would surely be strained to dislocation, I confess that that available upon this matter forces me to the following conclusions:

The dog Bob, between whom and myself there existed a mutual attachment, either at the moment of his death, if his existence can conceivably have been prolonged till after 1 in the morning, or, as seems more probable, about three hours after that event, did succeed in calling my attention to its actual or recent plight by placing whatever portion of my being is capable of receiving such impulses when enchained by sleep, into its own terrible position. That subsequently, as that chain of sleep was being broken by the voice of my wife calling me back to a normal condition of our human existence, with some last despairing effort, while that indefinable part of me was being slowly withdrawn from it (It will be remembered that in my dream I seemed to rise from the dog), it spoke to me, first trying to make use of my own tongue, and, failing therein, by some subtle means of communication whereof I have no knowledge telling me that it was dying, for I saw no blood or wounds which would suggest this to my mind.

I recognise, further, that, if its dissolution took place at the moment when I dreamt, this communication must have been a form of that telepathy which is now very generally acknowledged to occur between human beings from time to time and under special circumstances, but which I have never heard of as occurring between a human being and one of the lower animals. If, on the other hand, that dissolution happened, as I believe, over three hours previously—what am I to say? Then it would seem that it must have been some non-bodily but surviving part of the life or of the spirit of the dog which, so soon as my deep sleep gave it an opportunity, reproduced those things in my mind, as they had already occurred, I presume, to advise me of the manner of its end or to bid me farewell.

There is a third possibility which I will quote, although the evidence seems to me to be overwhelmingly against it, and, for the reasons already given, it is inherently most improbable—namely, that the dog was really killed about half-past 6 on the Monday morning, in which case my dream was nothing but a shadow of its forthcoming fate.

Personally, however, I do not for a moment believe this to have been the case, especially as the veterinary's certificate states that the animal's body must have been "over three days " in the water at the time of its discovery.

On the remarkable issues opened up by this occurrence I cannot venture to speak further than to say that,—although it is dangerous to generalise from a particular instance, however striking and well supported by evidence, which is so rarely obtainable in such obscure cases,—it does seem to suggest that there is a more intimate ghostly connection between all members of the animal world, including man, than has hitherto been believed, at any rate by Western peoples; that they may be, in short, all of them different manifestations of some central, informing life, though inhabiting the universe in such various shapes. The matter, however, is one for the consideration of learned people who have made a study of these mysterious questions...Further, I may say that I shall welcome any investigation by competent persons.

H. Rider Haggard.

Sir Henry Rider Haggard was an English writer of adventure novels set in exotic locations, predominantly Africa, and the creator of the Lost World literary genre. His stories, situated at the lighter end of the scale of Victorian literature, continue to be popular and influential. He was also involved in agricultural reform and improvement in the British Empire.

His breakout novel was King Solomon's Mines (1885), which was to be the first in a series telling of the multitudinous adventures of its protagonist, Allan Quatermain.

Haggard was made a Knight Bachelor in 1912 and a Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 1919. He stood unsuccessfully for Parliament as a Conservative candidate for the Eastern division of Norfolk in 1895. The locality of Rider, British Columbia, was named in his memory.

Daily 2 Cents: Blonde Hair, Blue Eyed Aliens 'Made Me Feel Safe' -- Garbage Man Watched Bigfoot Chase Deer -- Beware of Falling Cow

Blonde Hair, Blue Eyed Aliens 'Made Me Feel Safe'

Mississippi: This was October 1973, possibly 1974. It was a common occurrence for my mother and I to observe strange objects it the air that looked like nothing we have ever seen. Triangular objects that would stop and start randomly. Objects that were more circular that would move vertically as well as horizontally. It seemed as it they were preforming for us. It was explained, by my mother, that they were "experimental" air craft from the air force base in Columbus MS. We looked forward to our entertainment. One fall evening, my parents were in the house and I was outside alone. I wandered several hundred yards behind our house and felt, heard, and saw simultaneously a large, cigar/blimp shaped object. A fat cigar or skinny blimp. It was a dull pewter color. Then it emitted a white light down. The craft was not on the ground, but hovered just below tree level. I was drawn to the light, had a feeling of total comfort, almost euphoria. I have no idea how I got there, but I came to in a room with no windows, there were no lights, but it was very bright. there were 3 male and 1 female human-like "people" there. The men looked like super athletes. close to 7 feet tall. Blond hair, blue eyes which were a little larger than normal. The clothing was plain, but skintight, almost appeared to be painted on. The woman was a few inches shorter, very curvy. I was only 7-8 years old, but I immediately had a feeling of comfort, trust...and even attraction to her. As I was looking around, I had no discomfort, all I could move was my eyes and head. They touched me, had something like a wand and went all around me with it, the entire time we communicated but didn't talk. It was primarily them telling me the evils of nuclear power/weapons and to always do all I could to stay away from and stop its use. They also told me that they would be watching after me and "mine", not to worry, I would always be taken care of. Over the next few years, I had communication with them, but it was less vivid memory. I would be asleep, have almost a feeling of a dream I was aboard, then wake up in a chair outside. I always felt great after these visits. I found my self looking forward to these. I told my mother after the first and every other encounter I had. She told me that she believed me and that it could be real or could be a dream. But convinced me not to tell anyone else, because they would not understand and it would make life hard on me. Some time later I noticed a 2-3 cm hard object just under the skin on my left outer mid-thigh. I have asked several doctors, but have had no explanation on what it is. I have had spontaneous pneumothorax (collapsed lung for no apparent reason) 5 times as a teenager. No problems since. I put this repressed, or did not think that this could be real, as these were not bad experiences and were not like aliens that I have read about. I did a search on the internet to find a movie, and a picture of the type of "people" that took me came up. That is when I have had a flood of these memories return.

I have a great life, I am a successful eye doctor, with a wonderful, healthy family. I just had to report this and want to know if there are any other similar reports. - MUFON CMS


Garbage Man Watched Bigfoot Chase Deer

2005 - near Ohio River, Indiana, USA

Preston in Cincinnati, Ohio called to tell of a Bigfoot sighting he had.

“This happened in 2005, okay? I used to be a garbage man. So in 2005, I used to have a garbage route over in Indiana. It was a state route that ran parallel with the Ohio river. So this one morning, it's just before sunlight but it's enough light where, I guess it's considered... just before dawn, you know, just enough light so it's not dark. I'm dumping some trash and i look, something's catching my eye a quarter mile up the road, I see out of the clearing, i hear a deer just come running out of the clearing coming towards the road. So I’m looking at him and I've hunted before so I know what it looks like when a deer is being driven so as they approached this state route, it's not so much busy, but it's like a 60 mile per hour route, so traffic, when it comes, it comes fast, so these deer, when they get to the road, they cross the road with no regard for traffic. So I'm thinking, they are more scared of whatever is chasing them then getting hit by a car. So, I'm looking at the deer and out of the corner of my eye again, I see the trail of deer. And I see something coming out of the woods chasing it and you know how, when you see things that you don't know, your mind tries to rationalize what you're seeing. So I’m seeing this... uh... HUGE(!) black creature chasing this deer and I'm like, Okay, that’s a bear but bear don't run on two feet, okay? So, just as they get to the edge of the road, it swipes and clips the back of this deer and sends it like... like a helicopter, sends it, I mean, he knocked this deer clear across the road. I'm still dumping trash and the way this road is, it's kind of an undulating road so it's just over a rise and I can see maybe waist up what's going on. So it takes me maybe about five or ten more minutes to work a couple more trash stops to come over that rise and see. So I pull over to the side of the road and I see a fat, dead deer with his neck like twisted like a dish towel, like his neck had been broken and one of its hind quarters was missing like a Thanksgiving turkey, like how you would just take a turkey's leg, except it had taken the hind quarters out of the socket, like it was a turkey leg.”

The man claimed that he doubted what he saw for many years until he heard a Bigfoot researcher talking about them on the radio. That's when it began to click for him with regards to what he saw.

“You know what, I'm very into nature and I'm mad at myself because if I had the understanding and I knew what I was watching. I mean, I had one of those, what do they call it, a life altering experience and I’m mad that I couldn't appreciate it because my mind dismissed it as being something else. It just goes to show you, believe what you see! Just because you don't hear about something or you don't believe it, believe your eyes!”

He later clarified that he believed that it was a large adult female deer and the creature knocked it about 30 feet across the road like it was a pillow.

Driver and Passenger Survive Falling Cow

A French driver said it was a miracle he wasn't killed after being given the shock of his life when a 500 kg cow fell from the sky and landed on the bonnet of his car.

The driver was travelling down the departmental road 900 to take his stepson to school near the town of Perthus, on the border with Spain in the Pyrenees mountains. As he drove along he was brought to an abrupt stop when the cow crash landed on his car.

The cow had been walking along a cliff high above the road and lost its balance. The animal fell to the road below just as the car was passing, with the bonnet taking most of the impact, although one of the cow’s horns did pierce the windscreen.

The cow did not survive the impact, but luckily the driver and his stepson who was in the passenger seat, escaped unhurt. “We were more scared than hurt,” the driver said. “The car is dead but we are miracles. I was very affected by the death of the animal. With the best will in the world I couldn’t avoid it.” - French driver survives cow's crash landing


New Jersey Priest Points Antique Gun at Boy, 8, Over Football Rivalry

A church priest pointed a musket at an 8-year-old child inside his church and threatened him with it over an apparent sports rivalry, prosecutors say. 54-year-old Kevin Carter, priest at St. Margaret of Cortona Roman Catholic Church in Little Ferry, New Jersey, was arrested on Friday on charges of endangering the welfare of a child and aggravated assault by pointing a firearm, the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office said.

Carter allegedly approached the boy before Mass services at the church on Sunday, Sept. 13, and asked to see him in one of the rectory rooms, according to prosecutors. Once they were in the room, Carter allegedly had the boy stand against the wall, then retrieved a musket and pointed it at him, prosecutors said, citing several witnesses. "As he raised his weapon and pointed it at the boy, he said, 'I'm going to shoot you,'" Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli said. The boy was not hurt, Molinelli said.

One of the parishioners who witnessed the incident contacted Newark Archdiocese officials on Sept. 25, and the Archdiocese in turn contacted the prosecutor's office on Sept. 28. The prosecutor's office began investigating along with Little Ferry police, and on Friday, interviewed Carter at the rectory. A search of the room turned up the weapon that was allegedly used - a functioning Civil War-style musket - as well as gunpowder, ammunition and other associated items for the gun, authorities said.

Prosecutors said Carter, a Giants fan, was apparently unhappy because the boy planned to root for the Cowboys in a game against the Giants later that day. "The young boy was apparently a fan of a particular football team, the priest was not. So perhaps we have indication it started out as that," said Molinelli. "There's no such thing as joking around with a weapon when you're dealing with an 8-year-old kid," he added. The Giants lost to the Cowboys 26-27 on Sept. 13. Carter, was jailed on $15,000 bail. - New Jersey Priest Points Antique Gun at Boy, 8, Over Football Rivalry: Prosecutors

Atlas V Launch: Down-Range Aerial Phenomenon

I received two reports from Central Florida on Saturday...presumably describing the same aerial phenomenon in relation to the Atlas V launch at Cape Canaveral:

Tampa, Florida - 9/2/2015: Standing at work with another coworker when the coworker saw something in the sky. I tried to take a video but I was not quick enough, but I did get a few pics. This event was seen by about 10 or so other employees. It looked like what I have seen on YouTube it started with a narrow chemical like trail and it coned out then as if a secondary booster kick in and then it disappeared.


I took a picture of the Atlas V launch on 9/02/15 @ around 6:20 to 6:25 on my way to school in Kissimmee, Florida and I saw a flash of something reddish-orange after I saw the blue gases and that white light next to the top light post kept on moving around I will see if I find a video I took.
