One element of the phenomenon that he was well aware of, however, was the proposed connection between UFOs and the mysterious mutilations of livestock. He expressed concern that the craft observed was ‘checking out’ his own herd, since it was hovering above his pasture. He had heard about the outbreak of such incidents here in the Ozarks in the 1990s, but was not aware that at least one of them had occurred here in this county. I gave him the names of several websites he could visit to obtain more information of both types of incidents.
In my opinion, this observation remains unexplained. The shape and color was wrong for a balloon, and I agreed wholeheartedly with the other objections he mentioned to that possibility.”
