This is the first of a two-part series They typically come out at night, roaming a secluded ranch south of Fort Duchesne. Flashing lights in the windows and clawing to get into the ranch house, they terrify the elderly couple living there. They make objects on the ranch frequently disappear, never to be seen again or to be found later somewhere else. And that's not to mention the supposed creatures these people are roaming the ranch to find. The Uintah Basin's Skinwalker Ranch is known worldwide for tales of sometimes-graphic paranormal activity stretching from the mid-1800s to the present day. But activity on the ranch in the past decade has transitioned from the unexplained to the uncivilized - frequent illegal trespassing on private property and around the caretakers' home. [snip]

Not sure what else they could do--- sounds like some people just can't respect the current resident's privacy and I don't blame them for wanting to be left alone... they have enough to deal with just living there without being disturbed by people that can't resist the urge to trespass and act foolish. Maybe they could build a wall and get the Skinwalker to pay for it?

they are just contractors technically paid to be there and living there for free. Dont get caught up in the bs story, they are there for a job, and Bigelow will do anything to take over the road to keep everyone out of a property that supposedly has no paranormal activity. Its all lies and deceit. It has been ever since Knapp and Colms book where they mislead the reader about the ranch owners real names, they mislead about the address, they even post a picture of another ranch house on the book's cover. The ranch is still unquestionably active, (maybe not near the levels it was when i started investigating in 2005) however each year i have a new shocking encounter with whatever manifests on/around that property. The privacy concerns are just a excuse for a land grab, and possibly hint that activity levels are going to be ramping up in the near future.
A fabled hotspot for paranormal activity has proven to be a magnet for encounters of the unwanted human kind, prompting its current owner to ask that the portion of Hicken Ranch Road traversing the Utah property be vacated (no longer considered a public county road). Presumably, such an action would make it more legal, if not necessarily easier, to deal with constant incursions by would-be "researchers," otherwise termed trespassers, vandals, and thieves.A Uintah Basin resident representing "Skinwalker Ranch" property owner Adamantium Real Estate in the matter indicated that the company is associated with aerospace entrepreneur and National Institute for Discovery Science founder Robert Bigelow, who was titular owner of the ranch from 1996 to April of this year. The request for vacation was tabled pending the agreement of all affected parties. More details are in the Minutes of the July 18, 2016 Uintah County Commission meeting. (WM)
