The witnesses report that at this point, the object quickly moved directly above the lone elk and seemed to lift it off the ground, although no visible means of support of the animal was evident to the observers.
The witnesses added that shortly after lifting the elk off the ground, the object seemed to begin to "wobble" to a more pronounced degree than it had exhibited earlier. In addition, as the object appeared to increase its altitude, the elk, which was suspended upright below the disc, rotated slowly beneath it and appeared to be getting closer to the ventral surface of the disc. They also commented that the object seemed to increase in size slightly after it had picked up the animal.

But is that second picture supposed to be legitimate? Or is this just a rendition.
Date of Sighting: May 1, 2004 Time of Sighting: Around 3 PM Date Reported: May 16, 2005 Location: Lawndale, California (Southern California about 20 Miles Northwest of Long Beach) Latitude: 33.88765 Degrees North Longitude: 118.35760 Degrees West Number of Witnesses: One Number Witnesses Interviewed: One Weather: Unknown Description: This report is suspect because the witness supplied virtually no details. He said that a saw a big UFO in the mountains taking a deer. It appears that the man does not write very good English so this could be part of the reason for his brief report. Investigator's Notes: I cannot reach the witness via email as he provided a bad or expired email address. I left a message on his voice-mail, but have not yet received a response.
Without more information this sighting cannot be investigated. Given the information provided below I consider this case to be hoax. Addition Information Provided by a Local Resident in Lawdale, California: RE: Lawndale, CA UFO Abducting deer. Lawndale is a suburb of Los Angeles and has no mountains and is mainly residential and freeway and wall to wall shops and malls. Deer are never seen in Lawndale. Lawdale is an urban area. I live 2 miles from Lawndale/Hawthorne.

That's an interesting story,I love hearing these kinds of stories with multiple witnesses, but unfortunately I'm highly skeptical of ufos.
I just don't see such an advanced race being here, and not saying hello or die.
I really do love unknown mysteries S&F
P.S. I don't feel there's enough big foot threads or sea monsters. ATS members present unusual stories so well, and use true passion (not money or fame) when expressing their beliefs.
Reminds me of the Swedish snow sighting where the Ovalish object hugged the tree tops as it took off. (which of course, naturally, people say is CGI)...
