Thanks for this post. You've brought-up an interesting UFO case from history that I'd totally forgotten about... So, please forgive me if you
thought one of my replies to one of your earlier threads seemed to imply that I thought you weren't interested in historical research....
As for the 'monster'... I tend to agree with the notion that it was a robot of some kind. It almost reminds me of one of the 'imperial probes'
from The Empire Strikes Back... A self-reliant machine that could defend the area of a UFO crash site for awhile. And, for those of you who think
that idea is too science fictiony to be real.. keep in mind that PackBot, Predator, GlobalHawk, and other robots have been used, recently, in Gulf War
2 and Afghanistan.
As the 'monster' seemed to be defending a specific perimeter, my guess is that it was not out to explore, though, but to hide the ship it came in
on.. which may have housed ETs. In this regard, the 'smell' near it may have been a type of non-lethal chemical weapon (the line from one of the
newspapers which began, "A monster with B.O. ..." was hilarious).
But was it a prank/hoax? Well, a problem with the story is that it was reported by a single woman and a bunch of teenage boys. Though, in and of
itself, there is no problem with this, I detected a tone in the newspaper articles which seemed to 'wink' an implied judgement about a woman who
spends her time with a group of 17 year olds. Though I have no problem with these witnesses, I sensed that the writers of the articles were trying to
imply something, here... If I am grossly misreading this, please correct me. Otherwise, I also noticed that, though the articles talk of government
'knowledge' of the UFO inflight, no mention is made of radar returns or air defense fighters having spotted it.
So, I'm not sure if it's real or not.
