Angel of Mercy

Dave in Minnesota wrote in with his unusual story:

“The following is a story that happened to me in the 1980s. This story takes place in either 86 or 87, on the east side of St. Paul at the intersection of Bradley Street and Maryland Avenue. It was approximately 11 at night and I was lying on the couch when I heard a loud crash. I ran outside to see how bad of an accident it was and when I got to scene, I saw that a motorcycle had hit a car broad side that was turning onto Maryland Ave. The driver and the passenger were thrown over the top of car with the driver landing on the street with his head against the curb while the passenger was ejected onto the grass of the boulevard.

I was the first one there, except for a nurse dressed all in white who was there when I arrived. She was already bending over the motorcycle driver, whose head had hit the curb. She looked at me and told me, "I have this one, you take care of the other." So I went over to the other passenger who had landed on the grass boulevard. The boy's hand was ripped open and he was in shock but conscious. I had to put pressure on his hand because he was bleeding profusely and then watched then nurse still bent over the other boy. Within a few minutes other people began arriving including a policeman. When the policeman arrived, he went over to the boy that had his head smashed against the curb. He spoke with the nurse looking after the boy then came over to me and asked me how he was doing. He looked at the one I was tending to and told me to keep the pressure on the cut and to keep talking to him to keep him awake then he went back over to the nurse that was taking care of the other kid. About this time the ambulance could be heard in the background making it's way to the scene of the accident. The policeman came back over to the me and said that he didn’t think the other one was going to make it and asked again how this one was doing. I told him this one was okay for now but was definitely going into shock. He was shaking because of the shock. Then the policeman met the ambulance and they first looked at the badly injured boy then the policeman came back to ask about the one I was with. He asked me if I saw where the nurse went. I had not.

By this time a paramedic had arrived and taken over for me. The policeman was asking the crowd that gathered if they saw where the nurse had gone. He came over to me and took down my information. He again asked if I saw her. I said yes, I spoke with her. He said no one else seems to know where she went as if she just disappeared. Another motorcyclist was with them and I ended up giving him a ride in order to pick up the badly injured’s mother and drive her to Ramsey Hospital. Having done this, I drove back home. The motorcycle driver was pronounced dead at the hospital. Was the nurse really an angel coming to take someone who was passing?”

Daily 2 Cents: BEK Eating a Pear -- 'Alien Creature' Slaughtering Sheep / Attacking Humans -- Missouri Bigfoot Experience

BEK Eating a Pear

I recently received the following account:

Our incident took place about 4 weeks ago. We had just moved to Santa Fe, NM. My wife and I were newlyweds from a small community in the Midwest. Being naive and new to living in the city, I would answer the door without giving it a second thought. Never again!

There were several loud knocks at 6:00 in the morning, which was unusual...and it should have dawned on me to be cautious. My wife and I had been getting ready for work, a pretty normal routine. The moment I opened the door, I was feeling a strange rush of fear and foreboding. There stood was a teenage boy, average height and build, black leather coat, black hair and sunglasses. The sunglasses at 6:00 a.m. struck me as odd. Then I noticed he was eating a pear. He simply asked if he could come in and warm up. I said, "sorry, but no", closed the door and slid the security chain into place.

A few minutes later, another knock. I opened the now chained door, and before I could speak he asked again if he could come in and warm up. I replied "NO!" and attempted to close the door. Before the door could shut, he put his hand out and abruptly stopped the if he had no issue with getting his fingers smashed against the frame. He looked directly at me, still wearing his sunglasses, and said, “Can I at least get something to wipe my hands?” I said “get the Hell outta here! My wife is calling the police!” He smiles, lowers his glasses, revealing eyes as black and shiny as obsidian and says, “No. You won’t be calling anybody.” At that moment I force the door closed, lock it, and call out to my wife. She was totally freaked out by this time while hiding in the bedroom. I rip the curtains back to look out the window next to the door. He’s gone. Absolutely no trace of him. I go out on the patio and check the gate, it’s still latched from the inside. I look up and down the street...nothing. Then I look down. There is a half eaten pear laying on the sidewalk. MM


'Alien Creature' Slaughtering Sheep / Attacking Humans

Rumours about an “unseen creature” killing sheep and attacking humans of Niali in Cuttack district have been doing the rounds. Though a few sheep have been killed in the village, no proof its existence has yet been established. Adding to the confusion is the social media, where fake photographs and morphed videos of the creature are going viral.

According to sources, some “alien creature” has allegedly been killing sheep in the area at night since the past two months. Recently, some humans also were reportedly attacked. Though no one has seen it, many are assuming it to be a dog-like creature with long nails.

Panic among locals in Niali prevails as three more sheep were found dead under mysterious circumstances with the liver of the animals missing at Alana in the block on Sunday night. Two other animals were injured, reports said.

Fisheries and animal resources development minister Damodar Rout on Monday denied the report of a mysterious animal killing the sheep. It could be hyena that killed them, he added. Dr Rout further said the photograph and video of killer animal, which went viral on social media, was all rumour.

“The deaths of the sheep are true, but the claim of a liver missing from those that the killed animals is false. Chief district veterinary officer (CDVO), Cuttack, has written to the forest department regarding the matter. He has been asked to submit a report on the death of domestic animals,” Dr Rout added.

Cuttack collector Nirmal Mishra on Monday ordered for an inquiry team to investigate the death of sheep. As many as 150 lambs were killed in Amanakuda, Bansahi and other villagers under Niali block in last two months in a similar style. Locals are reportedly spending sleepless nights to catch the killer, but in vain.

They suspect a mysterious animal killed the sheep even as no proof of the killer has yet been established. - Unseen creatures create havoc in Odisha village


Missouri Bigfoot Experience

During my ongoing research into the many Bigfoot encounters that have occurred in the Taney County area over the years, I posted a request for information on the timeline of a Facebook group called “Taney County, Missouri History, Landmarks and Vintage Photography.” I was seeking information on “booger” place names and received a message from Darla — pseudonym — concerning “Booger Knob” near Rockaway Beach.

Then to my surprise she added, “I saw something a few years ago but I couldn’t really explain what it was and my ex-husband couldn’t either. It definitely wasn’t any kind of animal either of us had ever seen but when we stopped and turned around it was gone. Just took it as something we couldn’t explain and never really thought too much about it.”

I immediately responded with a request for additional information. She soon responded, “It was probably about 8 ft. tall, kind of dark grey with a little brown. Had a mane kind of like a male lion but shorter hair around the body and legs. Was walking upright on back legs but once we got close in our car it got on all fours and took off extremely fast. We slowed down and stopped to turn around immediately and drove back and forth a few times trying to see what it was but it was completely gone or hiding. Never saw it again.”
I inquired concerning when it occurred and was told, “Probably close to 5 years ago now (2012) and was right before dark; looked like it was coming out of the woods towards the lake. No odd smells or sounds but we were in a car going about 25 mph around a corner.”

I asked about the time of year and got, “It was during the summer, I’d say probably July or August because we had our windows up and the air on.”

Her final comment on the sighting was, “I’m not saying what I saw was Bigfoot but I know I’m not crazy. My ex and I both saw something neither of us had ever seen before in our lives. I can’t explain it. I spend a lot of time in the woods and that was definitely a first.”

She now lives approximately a half-mile from where the sighting took place. I proceeded to provide her with a rundown on some of the things to listen for, especially during the evening or at night: “Listen for sounds such as a tree being struck loudly with a wooden club, sounds like two rocks being clacked against each other, or any animal calls you do not recognize. All of these are common signs of Bigfoot activity.” Read more at UPTEGROVE: A Bigfoot sighting at Table Rock?

UFO Incident Over Loring AFB

In a 2013 video released by Michael Wallace, a KC-135 pilot tells a story from 1975 at Loring AFB, Maine about his UFO encounter during a return flight back to base after air-to-air refueling:

“I'm going to tell you a really incredible story that I have first-hand information on. The story begins at Loring Air Force Base and northern Maine near Limestone back in 1975. The 42nd Bomb Wing consisted of two air fueling squadrons and a bomber squadron. The mission was to support emergency war orders armed with nuclear weapons. I'd like to give you some background about the UFOs over Loring before we get into the details of the formation flight.

A couple of weeks or maybe even as few as a couple of days before this particular formation flight, a meeting was called by the 42nd Bomb Wing for all the flight crews...all three of the flying squadrons to be held with the alert facility. This was unusual. It was first time that it happened for me and all the time that I had been there so I was kind of curious as to what this is going to be about. So at the beginning of the meeting a uniformed Major says "listen if you don't have the security clearance of at least secret you need to leave." There's only a couple people that got up of a couple hundred people that were there. That Major started off by saying "if you haven't heard, there has been a UFO reported over the base"...over the nuclear-armed B-52s that are on alert over the nuclear weapons storage facilities that had nuclear weapons stored at them at this time. So it was a very serious situation and that's what this meeting was all about. "It's hovering without making any sound. It does have a few lights. It can move very quickly, unconventionally, rapid straight-line movements with straight vertical movements, turn with the without any apparent radius in the turn. So it's a pretty incredible technology. The wing staff is pretty concerned about it so they have notified SAC headquarters and we were told, don't talk to anybody about it. If you have one of these incidents. You can talk to us and a have a debriefing but outside of this room, don't talk about it. We're also concerned that the local press is going to get wind of all the extra ground forces and the fighters that we're bringing in to help us deal with this issue, so we're going to tell them that that there's a Canadian helicopter crossing the border and harassing us. So I think that's pretty incredible, but that's the background for the story that I'm going to tell you."

We had departed Loring earlier in the day. It was a nighttime refueling mission. There were three KC-135s in this formation. I was the aircraft commander on the number two aircraft in this three airplane formation. Tanker formations were referred to as 'cell flights.' There was a lot of vertical separation, a lot of horizontal separation. There was none of this high flying like the fighters do, this kind of stuff. Now we were way, way vertically clear, I think, a thousand feet, and I don't know, half mile, maybe, you know, so it wasn't very much fun. It was just kind of boring actually to be in a formation flight and tanker, however, the mission was pretty routine. I don't remember. It was unremarkable in almost every way until we started back and that's where the fun begins, that's where the action happens.

So we are coming back from a refueling mission somewhere south of New York offshore a little ways and I believe it was with F4 Phantoms. Just a routine training mission for both the Phantom's and for us, so as we are somewhere close, I think somewhere between Bangor and Portland, northbound coming back to Loring Air Force Base. The command post at Loring contacted us which was not routine but not completely out of the ordinary. But when they asked the aircraft commander of the cell leader, the aircraft commander of the number one tanker, to change radio frequencies to standby, they had an important radio call that they wanted to talk to him about. That was pretty unusual. So it didn't take me long to say, "hey, you know, I think one of my spare radios is good so let's see what this guy is going to get briefed on." So I tuned in. Number three tanker, probably with the same curiosity, he did the same thing, I'm sure. And we're listening to the command post telling the cell formation leader, "Listen, the UFO is over the base again, right now, and we want you to pass off the leadership of the formation of the cell flight, to the number two aircraft, and then we want you, then, for one aircraft, to turn your lights out too, radios off and head straight to the base at your own discretion, out to airspeed, path whatever, at your own discretion"...which is unusual, very unusual to hear that. Incredible, as a matter of fact, so I was quite shocked.

So the cell leader acknowledges and says, "Will do." So the next thing you know, I'm getting a call from him. He's contacted me and said, "Listen, I just got special orders, I have to depart the formation. You're going to take over leadership of the cell. Let the navigators coordinate our positions when you're ready, you got it." So when the navs did that, I was convinced that we were where they said we were. I could see some of the city, I knew we were close. I trusted the nav and off we went to the initial approach fix and the aircraft commander of the number one tanker turns his lights off, don't hear any more communication, so he's now radio silent. In the moonlight I could see his silhouette and down he descended into the darkness heading straight for Loring Air Force Base. Would have loved to have traded places with them. So number two, now, the old number three, and number two, and I, started the initial approach fix which is quite a ways south of the south end of runway 36. Runway 36 lands to the north, so going straight to the base is a lot faster and everything is...everything unfolds with that aircraft as he approaches the base.

Well, before I make it through the initial approach fix, I start hearing tower channel frequency communications that are really exciting. I've heard some combat radio discussions during some bomb strikes with F4s so, you know I can recognize a little stress in the voices and there was definitely stress on these voices. I wouldn't call it panicked but it was bordering on frantic. They're talking about, "Did you see it? Where is it now? Which way did it go? Oh my god, there it goes and it's down on this end of the runway, it's over east Loring, no it's back over the alert bombers" and that kind of communication, back and forth, quite a few different people talking on the tower frequency. I don't believe I could hear the tanker's crew-members chiming in. I'm not sure I would have recognized them, maybe. Maybe I would have. I do know that when the tankers at elevation, the KC-135 is set elevation their radar forward, forward-looking-radar was at a 240 mile range. I'm not sure what it is, it's substantially reduced at at ground level and they were flying in really, really low I believe. So the fact that they lost radar contact with the UFO in almost an instant is remarkable in itself and then they said, I did hear the communication say something to the effect that we've lost it and then as quickly as the communications, it's starting on tower frequency, they ended.

So that was kind of the end of the excitement and my wingman and I continued our normal approach through runway 36, we broke up the formation, I guess, after we hit the initial approach fix, so I landed. A couple minutes later the second airplane landed and taxied in. It's the middle of the night, there's not a lot of action going on at the base that we can see and we proceeded to our squadron normal debriefing room, had a couple of beers, filled out some paperwork and we're dying to talk to somebody that knew anything about what just happened out on the base. We couldn't find anybody that either knew it or dared talk about it so that was kind of the end of that night. The tanker that had departed the formation and gone off to chase the UFO was absent from the briefing room when we got there and then all of a sudden I realized that, well, he must be debriefing the Major, the same Major that gave that meeting that I talked about earlier however the story gets even a little bit more bizarre.

I see the aircraft commander of the first tanker. I'm not going to say his name. I've almost slipped a couple of times but I don't have permission to get him involved in my UFO story. So I'm not gonna say the name. I see him walking along in front of the base exchange the PX over at Loring, just couple of days after the flight I believe. So I pull my truck over got out and went running over to him and I said, "What the hell happened that night with that UFO" and he looks at me and he goes "I can't talk about it. I can't talk about it. You wouldn't believe me if I could talk about it." So that's the end of the story and it is incredible. It is. That's as true as I can remember. It's been a long time but I had a lot of experience at the time of that incident and I've had a lot of experience in the cockpits after that experience, but I've never had anything as incredible as that happen.”
