Summary: Most UFO investigators agree that UFOs are conducting a long-term study of our planet and its inhabitants. UFOs have been seen hovering over military installations, nuclear bases, reservoirs and other sensitive structures. Even more revealing is the fact that they have been seen collecting plants and animals of all different kinds.
Most UFO investigators agree that UFOs are conducting a long-term study of our planet and its inhabitants. UFOs have been seen hovering over military installations, nuclear bases, reservoirs and other sensitive structures. Even more revealing is the fact that they have been seen collecting plants and animals of all different kinds. In addition, research suggests that as many as one in fifty people may have been abducted and given medical examinations aboard a UFO.
If such a study is in fact being conducted, then several questions should be asked. For instance, what is happening to all those "specimens" that have been collected by these aliens? Although people are almost invariably returned after a UFO abduction, plants and animals have literally disappeared from the face of the earth after a close encounter with a UFO. Could it be that the aliens are collecting plants and animals for an alien zoo?
As incredible as it sounds, this may be what is happening. There are several cases on record in which people report having seen extensive collections of plants and animals aboard UFOs.
One interesting case is that of Catherine, an abductee featured in John Mack's book, Abduction. In Christmas of 1990, Catherine was taken aboard a UFO. She was given the standard examination and was then taken to a room where she was shown babies. It was the next room, however, that amazed Catherine the most.
She was led into a room that contained a full-sized, totally natural pine forest. As Catherine says, "I'm confused but it's there. It's in the room, and there's like trees and rocks and dirt and things off to the left. I can see them from where I am."
Catherine was stunned to be inside a forest. It even smelled real. She estimated it to be about the size of a high school gym. There were curving walls going upwards on all sides.
After being taken through the forest, the aliens led Catherine out of the ship and took her back to her home. 1
Extraterrestrials are not only growing whole forests, but they are also collecting animals of all sorts. One well-known case is that of a Wyoming hunter, Carl Higdon. On October 25, 1974, Higdon was hunting elk along the northern boundary of the Medicine Bow National Forest.
Higdon had been searching for game for several hours when he spotted five elk grazing in a nearby field. He lifted his gun, aimed and pulled the trigger.
To his surprise, the bullet went about halfway, stopped and fell to the ground. Higdon then became aware of an unusual-looking figure standing near him. The figure looked human except he had yellowish skin, a slanted head with thin hair that stood straight up and no visible chin. He was extremely bowlegged, and was dressed in a strange black suit with a wide belt.
Higdon was stunned when the figure invited Higdon aboard a UFO that he only then noticed. Before he realized what was happening, Higdon found himself strapped to a chair inside the UFO. He then felt a sensation of movement. Afterwards he was told that they had traveled 163,000 "light miles." Higdon then saw what appeared to be a futuristic-looking city.
After a short while, Higdon was returned. However, while he was aboard the ship, he noticed that the five elk he had been hunting had also been taken aboard. They had been put into a cubicle in which none of them could move. Higdon was told by the aliens that the elk were needed for breeding purposes.2
Another interesting case is that of Denise and Bert Twiggs of Mollala, Oregon. In 1976, the Twiggs experienced a missing-time UFO encounter while driving outside of Rapid City, South Dakota. They explored the event under hypnosis and a typical abduction scenario emerged. The Twiggs, however, worked through the trauma often associated with such encounters. Shortly later, they began having further encounters of a more interactive kind.
They soon developed an intimate relationship with aliens from the Andromeda galaxy who call themselves Andromes. Their story is told in their book, Secret Vows: Our Lives With Extraterrestrials.
During their contacts, they experienced many incredible events including several healings of physical ailments. They have also been taken onboard a large mother ship that contains a full complement of nearly all types of earth animals. As the Twiggs say, "One interesting part of the mother ship is the animal reserve. It is a veritable Noah's Ark. Lions, bears, wolves, birds and elephants are to be found there. The majority of these animals are from Earth, although the Andromes have also brought animals from their own and other planets."
The Andromes are not only collecting animals, but also plants. As the Twiggs say, "Equal to their love for animals is their love for nature. The vegetation on the mother ship for the most part seems much like the forests of evergreens here on Earth, specifically reminding us of the Black Hills of South Dakota, although the trees are not as tall. Yet they do have other plants that are not familiar to us, like their fire bush, a three-foot-tall bush in which a red liquid courses through the almost clear branches. From a distance its luminescent qualities and movement make it appear to have a fire dancing across it. There is also a tree in the shape of a giant banana, whose bark resembles something like the shape of a pineapple." 3
Another case of a perhaps more bizarre nature is that of Katharina Wilson, an Oregon-based real-estate broker who has been having UFO encounters all her life. Wilson has been abducted several times, has been examined by the aliens, has been shown hybrid babies, and has been subjected to many other experiences that are typical of onboard UFO experiences. And like many UFO abductees, she has experienced some interference with the United States military, or some faction thereof.
On July 23, 1988, Katharina was taken aboard a UFO where she saw several people, including members of her own family. Several of them were taken to a large area that appeared to be some sort of a zoo. In large glass cages, Katharina was surprised to see a variety of animals, none of which she had ever seen before. As she says, "This huge, dark area we are in looks like a zoo except, instead of cages, they use big glass rooms. They look like displays. I can walk all the way around them . . . Ooh! I'm looking inside one - I see two gorilla-like Beings and a large cat. The hairy Beings are very tall, and they don't really look like gorillas, but they are all hairy like them. They are asleep."
Katharina was surprised to see that the gorilla-like creature had fallen asleep holding a newspaper, although she had no idea if the creature could actually read. The enclosure did have furniture, including a desk, chairs and books. Katharina also noticed a large cat-like creature. As she says, "There is a cat on the other side of the room. It is white with orange spots, and it is about two to three feet tall. It must weigh over fifty pounds. It was sleeping, but now it is stretching a little and rubbing its face against the wall . . . I'm walking towards another glass enclosure. The animal in this one appears to be half lion and half reptile. It is lying on its back and its mouth has fallen open because it is sleeping. I'm looking at its mouth and I can see rows of teeth. I know what this animal is because I'm telling the people standing next to me. I sense the animals have been saved from extinction. Someone next to me whispers, 'That is something no one on Earth has ever seen before.' I'm nodding in agreement. I'm amazed at what I'm looking at. These animals are incredible."
Katharina's UFO experiences have involved many screen memories and deceptive camouflages set up by the aliens. She feels, however, that the animals she saw were actually there. As she says, "The animals in the glass enclosures were very real. Again, I did not sense any deception here. Yes, they were unusual, but I felt at that time, and still believe today, that these animals were very rare and were being saved from extinction. Another possibility would be to compare this area to one of our own zoos. It is also interesting that even today I remember the sex of the reptile-lion was female. While I was in the dark and large zoo area, I did not see any aliens, but I was aware that they were monitoring us."
Katharina believes that the zoos are not really for display purposes, but are actually for the animals' own benefit. As she says, "I believe these animals were being helped in some way. Yes, they were captive, but they were healthy and well-cared for. The glass appeared to be one-way viewing, that is, we could see the animals, but the animals could not see us. Somehow, I knew these animals were very special to the aliens and we had to be very quiet when viewing them." In March 1989, Katharina was again taken to the alien zoo. On this occasion, however, she saw only birds. As she says, "I must have passed out and now they brought me to another place. I see cages with birds - the cages are about eight feet square. This is like a zoo, except they have only birds."4
Another bizarre case seems to involve genetic experimentation of animals. The case comes from UFO researcher and abductee, Karla Turner, Ph.D. In her book, Into The Fringe, Turner writes about the case of Fred, who had a decidedly unpleasant experience aboard a UFO. Under hypnosis, Fred remembered undergoing some kind of surgical procedure in which fluids from Fred's body were injected into a bizarre creature that was also being operated on aboard the UFO. Fred also saw other strange creatures aboard the UFO. As Fred says, "I feel like they are going [to do] something to me with the animal . . . They are going [to do] something with me, my blood, my sperm and my genes. They are injecting my fluids into this animal. . . . I was lying down, and they were doing something to the animal. . . . Taking something from me and putting it into the animal. Then I remember seeing another animal running around. I can't remember what the animal looked like, but it was bizarre. Seems like the animal is part human, part animal. Like a small child around two years old. The one animal that appears to be human seems to be really hairy. . . . They have the animal next to me. The thing appears to be flat, not like a walking animal."
Fred was intrigued even more by the other animal. As he says, "I can't see it clearly. It doesn't have a shirt on. It has some hair, but not a lot. It seems like it has skin, pink or white, on the top and hair on the bottom. Brown hair. My logic is blocking out a good description . . . whatever it is, it has hooves, like a cow. I'm not seeing the body too clearly."
As Fred watched, the animal was injected with fluid, and removed from the room. Another woman was brought in and given a similar procedure. Afterwards, Fred was returned to his home. It is Fred's opinion that the aliens are experimenting with crossbreeding. As he says, "They are regenerating from animal to human, from human to animal. Regenerating DNA. I think it has something to do with the immune system. Either they are testing our immune system, or doing something with it. What it is I don't know, but they did implant something into the woman. They seem to be crossbreeding too. Between animal and human."5
Probably the most revealing of these types of cases is that of Betty Andreasson of Massachusetts.
On January 26, 1967, Betty Andreasson was taken out of her home and into an alien ship. She was given a painful examination in which she believes she was implanted. She was then placed inside an enclosed chair. When she was taken out, she was led down a tunnel and into a landscape that looked totally unfamiliar and otherworldly. There were strange buildings with window-like openings. It was in one of these strange buildings that Betty saw a large number of very strange creatures.
Crawling along the walls and floor of the one-story building were dozens of one-foot tall creatures with no heads and two eyes located on the ends of stalks that grew from the tops of the lemurs or monkey-like creatures. As Betty says, "There're loads of them. Oh, they're scary! And they've skinny arms and legs and kind of a full body. And their eyes can move every which way, and they can climb just like monkeys. They can climb up quickly and swiftly and down and around and in and out of windows. They are all over the place . . . they are all around us, everywhere! They are all around and they keep looking at us."
Betty asked the aliens who the creatures were, but they refused to answer.6
In 1950, in Westminster, Massachusetts, Betty Andreasson was abducted by aliens from a field behind her home. She was placed inside a large disk filled with jelly-like liquid. As Betty watched through a porthole, the UFO took off and dived into a large body of water. Afterwards, the UFO rose into an underground cavern.
The cavern was completely natural except that there were odd cube-like structures situated in clusters. As Betty approached the cube-like structures, she was shocked to see that they were clear like crystal. And inside each one was a person!
As Betty says, "I'm just moving along beside those odd - I don't know what you would call them - icicles, square icicles or glass things. I don't know. And there is light there . . . There's people in there, there's some people in there. . . . There's people inside those things. There's some people in there. . . . Inside those glass things, there's some people. But they're not moving."
Betty looked more closely, and she could see that each figure was surrounded by their own distinct scenery. Even more shocking was the wide variety of people represented. Betty saw a Native American, a man from the Renaissance and people from all different times and races. There were also many children. The cubicles were too numerous to count. As Betty says, "There's an Indian in there. . . . There's a whole bunch of people in there. . . . There's people there that are dressed funny and old fashioned. . . . I seen Chinese and just all different peoples there. . . . There's all these different peoples there. . . . There's all these different frozen, or something or other, people there. There's even a dog and a cat and some animals too. There's a whole bunch of stuff there, but I can't see it all."
Betty was then taken to another room that represented a beautiful scene of nature, all in what appeared to be glass. As Betty says, "Oh, everything is just like it's clear glass, like a forest of clear glass. There's leaves and trees and grass and everything, everything. And the birds, they're like thin, thin, thin glass . . . the only thing is, there's nothing moving. There's even birds flying, but they're not moving. And there's butterflies."
At this point, Betty reached out and touched one of the glass butterflies. To her surprise, it came to life, fluttered around and returned to its frozen state. She reached down to the ground and touched the flowers. The same thing happened. As Betty says, "I'm touching some of the flowers and - Oh! The flowers are beautiful. The color is coming into them and it smells beautiful. Oh. I'm going to touch some leaves. Oh, it's just so beautiful."
Betty was then told by the aliens, "This is for you to remember so mankind will understand."7
In 1973, Betty Andreasson was taken to an even more extensive zoo. It was a perfect reproduction of a pond in a forest. In fact, it was so convincing, that when Betty was placed inside the room, she thought she was actually outside. As she says, "I'm in the woods. I don't know how I got here from there, but I'm in the woods . . . it's so green and beautiful. And there's a pond right there. The water is so clear. I can see fish there. Oh wow! There's - it's just loaded with fish. Loaded! Loaded! . . . All sizes of fish in there. And such a small pond too. Oh, and I can see ferns. And it is just so beautiful."
Betty noticed that there was no sun but sort of a strange, even lighting. Shortly later, the pond began draining and Betty saw that it was actually an artificial pond.
Later during the experience, Betty had a chance to communicate with the extraterrestrials. They explained in no uncertain terms that their zoos are actually saving the species on our planet from total extinction. As Betty says, "He says that they are the caretakers of nature and natural forms - The Watchers. They love mankind. They love the planet Earth and they have been caring for it and Man since Man's beginning. They watch the spirit in all things. Man is destroying much of nature. . . . They are curious about the emotions of mankind. . . . He's saying that they have collected the seed of Man, male and female. And that they have been collecting every species and every gender of plant for hundreds of years so that nothing will be lost when the last shall come."8
There are many other cases of this kind, but the general pattern is clear. The cases fall into two main types. The first type is a simple collection of genetic material and live specimens. The second type seems to involve genetic experimentation with exotic, unknown creatures.
Why are the aliens collecting these specimens and creating new ones? What do these stories tell us about our future? Are the aliens predicting worldwide disasters and the destruction of all life on planet Earth? Are they collecting species like a sort of futuristic Noah's ark? Are they just performing bizarre genetic experiments for reasons of their own?
Some obvious conclusions can be easily drawn from these types of cases. Evidently, the aliens feel that we are going to destroy ourselves and are only trying to protect humanity from total extinction. Our zoos on Earth are primarily used for display. The alien zoos, however, are much more akin to wildlife reserves. Humans have stood by and done nothing while species after species have been rendered extinct. The aliens, however, have obviously taken action. Thanks to the aliens, many creatures thought to be extinct may actually have been saved. And those that are in danger of extinction may still be saved. Including us.
