Out There stories relating to "abduction"

Is this an abduction of a car, or is it a CGI job? It's one of those cases where it's impossible to tell if a computer graphic program has been used. So we're running it, in view of this week's Dreamland on the mass abduction at the Coronado Hotel in San Diego.

A sheep has been reported drawn up into a UFO in Lampeter, Wales. Police were called but could do nothing, and the animal has not been recovered. Unfortunately, while the story sourced here reflects some recent information, it fails to mention the long history of sheep abductions and mutilations in the region.

In his most recent nonfiction book about the UFO phenomenon, Solving the Communion Enigma, Whitley Strieber offers some of the long history of sheep attacks in Wales. He writes:

"Author Charles Fort, in his book Lo, describes widespread surgical mutilation of sheep in Wales in 1904-05, commenting that they took place after a religious revival swept the region. Whether they were connected or not isn't clear, but he also relates that there were strange lights seen at the time, which is also a characteristic of the modern animal mutilation phenomenon. Modern ranchers consistently report seeing lights in distant fields prior to finding mutilated cattle, and they were seen again in Wales beginning in 2009, when sheep mutilations returned to the area after an absence of 105 years.
In March of 2009, members of the British Animal Pathology Field Unit were called to a farm in Radnor Forest in Wales where the bloodless corpses of four ewes had been discovered. In January and February of 2010, they returned to the same farm to investigate the discovery of three more sheep mutilations, once again with all the blood removed from the carcasses."

In October of 1988, Buck Stabler had a bizarre and terrifying experience of apparent alien abduction, which he reported to authorities and which was extensively covered in the media. The result was predictable: his life was ruined. And now he has been found dead, an apparent suicide, but the case is still under investigation. He was interviewed last September by Stan Hernandez, and that interview is sourced here. It does not suggest any suicidal plans, but it is clear that the trauma of his experiences was still very vivid for him, even all these years later.

Unknowncountry.com and Whitley Strieber take the position that the close encounter experience is of unknown origin, that it is traumatic, and that a lack of proper scientific study has left people who have it without recourse or an adequate avenue of support. If Mr. Stabler did take his own life, the tragedy is a strong testament to the need for proper study and useful help for the thousands of people who have experienced this trauma.

Some fairly good UFO photos are followed by an interview with the photographer who claims that he took them in 1988 after being taken aboard the UFO and then released. He claims that he was told that an asteroid would strike soon near Puerto Rico. But that was 23 years ago and it still hasn't happened. In fact, it's typical of the dire warnings close encounter witnesses often report, which don't come true. More than one UFO cult has seen its end of world prediction come and go without incident. Still, an interesting account.

Was this what it seems? We'll never know, but judging from all the letters from Australia reporting close encounters that the Striebers have gotten over the years, this could well be an abduction attempt that went wrong, or seemed to.
