“Three members of the Wynyard Aero Club claimed they had seen a ‘flying saucer’ on Sunday (24 December 1950).
They said it was circling over Mt. Hicks, near Wynyard airport, at high speed.
The members are Messrs. R. Dobson, P. Morris, and K. Winter.
They said the saucer made no sound and left no vapor trails.
They watched it for about three minutes.”

Quote from NICAP.org’s “The 1969 UFO Chronology” (nicap.org):
“Neighbors of the family contributed the remarks that their dogs were making a racket that evening. Van Horne stands as one of the best ‘landing effects’ cases on record. This is because it has multiple witnesses, an immediate corroberation of the trace by someone who knew exactly the state of his farm fields, no desire for publicity [in fact a parent who blocked almost all of it], no motivation [in fact, a loss of valuable crop], multiple, early-on-scene investigators with good track records for straight-shooting, and a fairly large and mysterious effect. On some scales of rating ‘trace’ cases, this might be #1.”

The whole case report:
April 12, 1952; North Bay CFS, Ontario, Canada(46.30° N, 79.46° W). (BBU 1108)
9:30 p.m. At 2230 local time, Warrant Officer E. H. Rossell and Flight Sergeant Reg McRae, observed a bright amber disc in the sky. The disc came in from the southwest and moved across the RCAF Station airfield at North Bay, stopped and moved off again in the reverse direction. It then climbed at an angle of 30 degrees at terrific speed and disappeared.
This was a sighting that got the attention of the Canadian Government and prompted them to begin a UFO investigation, Project Second Story. This area of Ontariohas had many UFO sightings over the years. The reason might be is that Sudbury, Ontario, just west of North Bay, is very rich in nickel deposits. The International Nickel Company INCO is located here. Tons of nickel powder was shipped to Oak Ridge, Tennessee, for use in the barriers in the gaseous diffusion process in the enrichment of Uranium 235 at the K-25 plant. See: ‘Nickel Powder/Nuclear Weapons, The Untold Story,’ below.”

The 1976 book (published by T.H.A.R. Institute, Raynesford, Montana) by the authors Roberta Donovan and Keith Wolverton explores the animal mutilation phenomenon.
In this post, I focus on the animal mutilation-UFO connection evidence that is reported on in the book.
Unmarked helicopters are sometimes also reported to be flying over or near (or even landing) where an animal mutilation incident has taken place, according to experienced animal mutilation researchers.

Quote from the newsletter issue:
“A 1977 ‘MUTE’ CHRONOLOGY
The following listing can in no way claim to be complete. As always, we suspect that we are unaware of many mutilation incidents. Some are reported to law enforcement agencies, but do not surface in the press; others are not reported ‘officially’ at all. We are fortunate to have learned of a few such occurrences through word-of-mouth. It will be noted that in 1977, as in the previous year, mutilations were occurring spottily but steadily, but with nowhere near the intensity of the extensive and inexorable wave of 1975, when hundreds of possible mutilations were reported. Nevertheless, we can draw attention to one important fact – they have yet to cease:
Colorado– Costilla County; 3 cows; unidentified helicopter; nocturnal revolving lights.”

Quote from the article:
“On the 3rd of August, 1985, researcher Timothy Good wrote to the Air Vice Marshal Ewan Jamieson, Chief of the Air Staff, at the Ministry of Defence Headquarters, Wellington, New Zealand, asking what the New Zealandmilitary’s official stance on UFOs was. In a 6th of September, 1985 reply to Good, Wing Commander S. D. White, writing on behalf of Air Vice Marshal Ewan Jamieson, stated:
‘New Zealand’s Ministry of Defence is not specifically charged with any formal responsibility for investigating UFOs… …and neither is any other government department. The Ministry does however take an active interest in all such reports and within the limitations of its resources conducts investigations as necessary.’
This official statement, and quite a few others like it, was somewhat misleading.
In March, 2017, I accessed Archives New Zealand, which is that country’s official national archive and records repository, and entered a series of keywords into the ‘Archway’ search engine. Using the keywords ‘unidentified flying object,’ ‘ufo,’ ‘unidentified flying objects,’ ‘ufos,’ ‘unknown object,’ ‘unknown objects,’ ‘flying saucers’ and the like, I was surprised to see numerous hits displayed in the results. Of course, New Zealand’s government has already released numerous files, so any search results which included these items were expected. What I didn’t expect was a listing of hitherto unknown files, some of which are ‘restricted’ from public access for decades to come. I should state that these unreleased files were not totally unknown to at least a handful of researchers. British based researcher Isaac Koi, for example, discussed the existence of these records some time ago on the internet forum Above Top Secret, and Keith Basterfield mentioned some of the items in various New Zealandfocused blogposts in 2010.
The first file of note, which should have been released in 2010, is titled ‘Intelligence – Defence – Unidentified Sightings.’ The record number for this item is ‘244/1/7’ and the date range spans from 1963 to 1976. The current controlling agency of the file is the New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF), but the original controlling agency, presumably, will be either a top–echelon division of the Ministry of Defence (MoD), or, one of New Zealand’s armed forces branches. Traditionally, New Zealand’s defence apparatus has, like most nations, always included an Army, Navy and Air Force. Either way, the file metadata gives no clue as to its origin. Moreover, as noted, this file is clearly a MoD item of some sort, and the NZDF is listed as the most recent controlling entity, so the notion that the NZDF released all of its UFO files in 2010 is quite incorrect. Having said that, the file is listed as ‘Open Access,’ so someone in the NZDF has cleared it for release.”
