One minute Jonathan Reed was hiking with his golden retriever in a forest in Seattle. The next, his pet was being torn apart by a “gray” — an alien being with an elongated head, smelling of rotting fruit.
A scene from a sci-fi film? No, maintains Reed, who says he took the alien home and lived with it for nine days, during which it communicated via telepathy and was able to pull thoughts from his mind.
Reed and others — including Uruguayan Rafael Ulloa, who says aliens in spaceships spirited away people from New York’s twin towers during the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks — are gathering in Lima this week for a world extraterrestrial congress.
One of the most unusual testimonies comes from Reed on his 1996 experience with the alien he came to call Freddie.
Reed, who says he has a bracelet belonging to the extraterrestrial, said Freddie had skin “almost like that of a pig.” It breathed and had red blood, but did not speak. Tests showed he had 46 chromosomes, like humans, but nine were different and resembled those of dolphins and sea turtles, Reed added.
E.T. enthusiasts and UFO spotters are used to raised eyebrows, ridicule and worse. Reed claims that he was shot after his alien encounter and blames a “government faction which doesn’t want this information out.”
But his close encounter with the alien with slanting eyes and a slit mouth “proved to me we are living in a much bigger universe,” he said.
