Trapper recounts UFO sighting

WHITEHORSE (CP) - Don Trudeau was hiking his trap line under a
dark sky one December evening when he spotted a row of lights
among the stars in the west. It was between 8:00 and 9:00 p.m.,
and at first he thought it was a large airplane about to crash.

But he quickly realized the object was moving too slowly and
steadily for it to be any type of aircraft. And he said it
didn't make any noise.

Trudeau reached to cover his flashlight, and as he did the
unidentified flying object rushed toward him, stopping just 300
metres away.

"I had to turn my head from one side to the other to view the
whole thing," Trudeau told UFO investigator Martin Jasek. "It
must have been about a mile long. For some reason, I wasn't
frightened. I just stood there and watched it."

There were 21 others who reported similar sightings the night of
Dec. 11, 1996, according to a report released by Jasek last

An engineer by trade, Jasek is a member of the non-profit group
UFO*BC. He researches UFO sightings throughout the territory.

Jasek spoke to all 22 witnesses. Trudeau was the only who was
willing to be identified.

Witnesses said the object was massive, with two rows of massive
yellowish lights.

Trudeau said it hovered silently.

Trudeau said a single beam of white light emanated from the
bottom and swept across the ground in front of him.

It then drifted to his right, as slow as nine to 16 kilometres
an hour, he said. Other beams of light shot out of the craft
horizontally and at a 45-degree angle.

After the UFO drifted behind some trees, Trudeau dashed across a
clearing to get a better view but the object suddenly vanished,
he said.

It all took about four minutes.

Jasek's report, with Trudeau's account, is available at
