i didnt mean to insult you
or your intelligence i might also stand corrected about whether theres activity there.
Tom Gorman (a pseudonym) and his wife, sometimes called Terry and Gwen Sherman, bought the ranch from absent owners in the autumn of 1994, with the
intention of raising cattle. After reputedly experiencing what they believed to be paranormal activity, and citing personal stress, the family
tried to sell the ranch in 1996. The Deseret News ran a front page article of the alleged phenomena shortly afterward.
The National Institute for Discovery Science (NIDSci), which funds study of the paranormal, purchased the ranch for $200,000. The ranch featured in
the media again in 2002 when NIDSci gave Las Vegas Mercury reporter George Knapp access to the ranch. Knapp wrote a two-part article, which was
published in the now-defunct alternative newsweekly Las Vegas Mercury in November 2002.
Hunt for the Skinwalker, a detailed book about the ranch and the NIDSci investigation which was co-written by NIDSci researcher Colm Kelleher and
Knapp was published in December 2005. The authors insisted that standard scientific protocols were followed in the investigation at the ranch, and
that scientists and researchers witnessed bizarre phenomena, but there has been no independent verification of those claims.
A Utah talk radio host, Steven Rinehart, claimed in December 2006 on the air to have visited the ranch. He subsequently posted photographs of the
ranch and directions to it online (and a Google Earth link), along with purportedly unidentified footprints he found in snow near the ranch. According
to Rinehart, each print was about 17 inches (0.4 m) long, and appeared to have been made by a large, bipedal creature.
 Reported activity
 Activity frequency
Activity at Skinwalker Ranch in Utah proved sporadic from the late 1990s onwards, with periods of high activity offset by periods of dormancy. Many
of the more unusual phenomena were transient, sometimes happening only once, or often reported as just occurring for a couple of weeks and then
disappearing forever, making it difficult for investigators to get results or draw firm conclusions.
The exact pattern of activity on the ranch has proved difficult to identify during this timespan, due to the secrecy and inactivity of NIDSci.
However, in February 2006 George Knapp declared on the Coast to Coast AM radio show that the strange phenomena had started up again. He also stated
that security measures were being used to guard the premises, and that anyone trespassing would be prosecuted.
 Types of activity
A wide variety of paranormal activities have allegedly been encountered at the ranch. Unusual or unidentified aircraft, balls of light, poltergeist
activity, cattle mutilation, and strange creatures have been reported. Chapter 14 in Kelleher and Knapp's book "Hunt for the Skinwalker" asserts
that after numerous interviews with neighbors to the Gorman ranch, many spoke of unusual experiences to NIDSci researchers (one, identified as "Mr.
Gonsalez" alleged that he had unusual experiences with cattle disappearances). They also claim local Ute Indians have a history of encounters with
unusual objects and creatures .
 Unidentified vehicles
A refrigerator-shaped object about the size of an RV with a white light at the front and a red light at the back was reported by the Gorman family
prior to NIDSci's arrival. The vehicle allegedly retreated from Gorman and his nephew as they approached it. It then floated up into the clear sky
and flew away. The vehicle bore a limited resemblance to a Chupa, a type of UFO reported in Brazil.
A black triangular object resembling an F-117 Nighthawk stealth fighter was also allegedly witnessed by Mrs. Gorman. The vehicle hovered about twenty
feet above her parked car before it vanished.
Known by locals as "ghost lights", the Gormans claimed that they could also move towards people as if to play a game of "chicken".
 Orbs and floating lights
Glowing orbs of various colors, particularly orange and blue, sometimes blinky, were allegedly seen on the property. They were described as ranging
from basketball- to baseball-sized, and some contained what appeared to be swirling liquid. These objects were allegedly capable of affecting
electrical items, particularly lights merely by their presence, and of melting animals, such as dogs. This was possibly due to extreme heat or
radiation that might have emanated from the orbs.
Another phenomena observed by the Gormans were large orange circles that floated in the sky and occasionally expelled orbs and unidentified beings.
Mr. Gorman claimed blue sky was visible through one such circle he witnessed at night.
 Cattle mutilations and strange creatures
The Gormans allegedly witnessed numerous cattle mutilations on the ranch during their stay. Some common traits of these included:
One ear being cut off
Excision of the cattle's genitals
The rectum being 'cored out' of the cattle
Exsanguination, some instances of which took place very quickly (twenty minutes, on one occasion)
Numerous encounters with unidentified or strangely behaving creatures allegedly occurred on the ranch. In some tales, the creatures were reminiscent
of dogs or hyenas. The first unusual encounter the Gormans had on the ranch involved what appeared to be a very large wolf on one of their first days
after moving to the ranch. The animal was not aggressive towards the family, but when it attempted to capture a calf, Mr. Gorman shot at the creature.
The shots had no noticeable effect and the creature eventually left the homestead. Gorman later found a hunk of flesh from the animal that smelled of
burning sulfur or rotten meat.
Other creatures, including what appeared to be Bigfoot and an unknown, semi-transparent entity, were also said to have been encountered on the
Exotic, multicolored birds were also reported on the ranch, although such instances could be explained by the wide variety of rare and exotic bird
species that are seen in Utah.
 Poltergeist activity
