Video: British Man Claims UFO Abducted Water Buffalo - Basingstoke, Hampshire, UK

Click for video

thesun - Stunned Derek Bridges has revealed how he shot extraordinary footage which UFO experts say shows aliens beaming a BUFFALO into their spaceship.

Pensioner Derek filmed the eerie scene from his window after spotting pulsating glowing orbs hovering over a neighbouring farm late at night.

The two bright lights hover high over fields, while an animal appears to dangle below before vanishing into them.

A high-pitched screeching noise can be heard before the UFOs finally disappear into the night.

Grandfather Derek, 69, said: "I couldn't believe my eyes. I'm convinced it is the real thing."

He told how he spotted the bizarre lights over a neighbouring farm as he looked out of his window while getting ready for bed at his house near Basingstoke, Hampshire.

Quick-thinking Derek grabbed his camcorder and began filming the incident above 2,500-acre Laverstoke Park Farm in Overton village at about 10.30pm.

It has one of the country's biggest herds of water buffalo and is close to a military base used by special forces.

Derek said: "I just looked out of the window before going to bed. I wasn't sure what I was seeing at the time.

"I have a keen eye and I could see something glowing which looked dark red about half a mile away.

"I kept looking at it for about 20 minutes and then suddenly a bright white light appeared which was very powerful.

"At that point I picked up my video camera and filmed what I saw. I saw two white lights lifting up and I just kept filming. The lights were high in the sky. They couldn't have been anything on the ground.

"I did not realise at the time that something was dangling beneath but when I played it back the next day on a big screen I could see it there.

"I believe it's a UFO and this animal, which could be a bison or a horse, seems to be being beamed up.

"As far as I know, this is the first time anyone in the world has filmed animal abduction, so obviously I'm pretty chuffed."

UFO experts claim there is a long history of cattle being abducted by aliens for research, particularly in the US, sometimes being returned alive or mutilated.

There are often reports of animal carcasses found lying in fields with body parts mysteriously missing and their blood drained without the skin being spilt.

Divorced Derek told how he spoke to a farm worker who said they had found a couple of dead animals around the time the lights were filmed.

The farm - owned by 1979 Formula 1 champ Jody Scheckter - insists no cattle have gone missing

Boss Sara Whittall said: "We have never seen any aliens or UFOs around here.

"All our animals have been accounted for, so we have not had any abductions either."

But the area is a hotspot for UFO sightings.

In June last year, families in Basingstoke reported seeing a dozen glowing orange objects hovering in the sky above the town.

The "alien" fleet was captured on video, changing formation for half an hour.

Officials at nearby RAF Odiham said they could not comment at the time "for security reasons".

A trucker also reported seeing aliens just six miles from the farm in August 2007.

The footage has now been screened at a conference of UFO hunters in Scarborough.

Expert Nick Pope, who used to run the British Government's UFO Project, said the latest footage needed urgent investigation by the authorities.

He added: "If this footage is genuine, it could be highly significant."

UFO hunter Kenneth Parsons of the British Earth and Aerial Mysteries Society said he was convinced it was the first ever footage showing aliens abducting cattle.

He added: "This footage is like the holy grail. This is the first time anything like this has been filmed so clearly.

"There are no street lamps or pylons where the footage was filmed, just fields, and it is usually pitch black and silent at night, so there is no simple alternative explanation.

"We are very excited."

Derek told how he looked out of his window the next evening to see if the lights came back - and saw three helicopters flying around the field as if searching the site.

The Ministry of Defence yesterday declined to comment on the incident, saying only: "The MoD examines UFO reports solely to establish whether UK airspace may have been compromised by hostile or unauthorised military activity.

"Unless there is evidence of a potential threat, there is no attempt to identify the nature of each sighting reported."

Meanwhile UFO experts are being urged to investigate another case of aliens playing Cattlestar Galactica to steal cows.

A US cattle rancher is blaming extra-terrestrials after finding a mutilated cow with its internal organs removed on his land.

Mike Duran claims ET abducted his animal and made a surgical study of the beast before abandoning its carcass.

The cow was found with its udders and reproductive organs removed in Las Animas County, Colorado, in March.

And Duran says it happened after he spotted strange lights hovering in the skies above his ranch. "They were like a round circle in the air," he said. "I've watched them and they just disappear."

NOTE: well, I'm going to withhold judgment on this one until the video is run through the wringer. Honestly, I hope it's authentic. It would surely help answer a lot of questions...Lon

As the main investigator of this case let me just say that Mr Sheckter is choosing his words very carefully. His pa initially told us at BEAMS HQ that 2 dead cows were reported as being found at his farm next day after this event, in a field.
This is situated directly below where the sighting occurred. We have never claimed that any cows were missing, only that 2 were found dead.
One has to ask why Mr Sheckter is suddenly being so defensive.
Nick Pope contacted me and said...
In relation to animal deaths, the issue is probably insurance. Insurance companies won't pay out for claims attributing animal deaths to UFO activity, so farmers may stay silent and accept the loss, not least to avoid jeopardising future claims.
In this case, a possible scenario is that the deaths were attributable to military activity. Many farmers give permission for helicopter training to be undertaken over their fields and for landings to take place. RAF Odiham is nearby and Chinooks are based there. Some Chinooks are involved in Special Forces operations and SF training includes a lot of night flying, sometimes with loads slung under the helicopter:
If such activity led to the deaths of any animals, the farmer might simply have been paid in cash and asked to remain silent. Such an arrangement would suit both the farmer and the military.

I remain open-minded about this whole business, but it would be remiss of me not to point out prosaic alternatives.

Best wishes,

Nick Pope
so could it be the military?...not to my eyes...this doesn't look like any helicopter I have ever seen before.
And what about the footage of something illuminated dangling...the discovery of dead cows in area...the unaccountable 'trilling' sound on audio...the trashed camera...the fleet of ufos reported as being seen by another witness for this area...no, we simply can't keep making excuses for all of this high-strangeness...
For my money, the Overton footage has captured something unexplainable in usual terms, and we have to just get used to it.

It sure looks like he videotaped a street light. The slight color changes could be attributed to a bad mercury bulb or similar.
The thing 'dangling' under it appears to be the reflection of the pole. It never changes position or moves any closer to the light emitting object. It is possible that the camera was moved behind an object so that it would appear that the light source disappeared. Just my opinion.

ok were's the water buffalo, all I see is a light that could possibly be a street light. Ofcourse the film is conviently fuzzy. No I'm not buying this one.

Hi there,
Please see this image in negative mode; if there were any street lamp there the structure would show up.
A negative would show any solid object that was in the field of view..there is no structure there.

And although they might be classed as 'gutter press', at least The Sun ran this story, but with very slanted reporting, and a couple of important omissions; no proper mention of the 2 dead cows as reported to us by Mr Schecter's pa...'he said 2 dead animals were found" (or words to that effect)..what, 2 dead rabbits or something?
and "we haven't seen any aliens around here"..ha,ha, (to paraphrase), and "no animals are missing"
Helloooo, we didn't say that...what about the 2 dead cows in field?
And..The Sun photographer actually went around to Derek's and took photos of the very spot we are so interested in, and nothing else, the area where the supposed lampost is...and guess what? they didn't publish any of those images, I wonder why?
What do you think that those photo's show eh? (and what my soon to be released daylight footage, shot exactly the same as the witness will show)?
I will tell you, nothing much at all..apart from the houses on either side of the gap through which this event was filmed. Why? because it's farmland over there...doh!
Yes, it's grainy, it's aweful, I agree, but it's the best we have got so far...and I think that instead of ridiculing it, trying to find excuses, inventing this and that, we should appreciate this film for what it is...the first real evidence of cattle abduction by an aerial craft of some kind...whatever this may represent.
