Hi Greg,

I've kept dogs in wooded and hilly country, and gone on many
camping-out treks with one or more in attendance, so I/we know a
bit about their behaviour. Country bred dogs are fairly stable;
if wild-life is close-by you usually know from their reactions -
and they don't go crazy for no reason. So any extreme reactions
are interesting in themselves. In many CE reports dogs have
shown extreme fear and even run away from unknown/unseen
presences on the ground.

On the other hand, herbivorous livestock have panicked when
things have merely flown overhead - as in the the 1954 incident
at Tananarive (Antananarivo), Madagascar:

"The 'machine' flew at a reported speed of approx. 300km/h
directly over the city, just above roof-top height, in full view
of walkers and commuters. The number of witnesses is estimated
at being from  20,000 to 200,000 people, in the city and at the

The object traversed the main city avenue, accompanied by
rolling electrical blackouts which ceased immediately after its
passage overhead.  It created panic among animal life, both
street & backyard animals and livestock held at the city cattle-
market, although all these animals were habituated to low-flying
aircraft using the city's airfield.

Two or three minutes after the object disappeared to the west, a
report came from a farm school 150 kms to the South, that the
same (or similar) object was terrifying their animals, which
'ran away into the swamps'.

If the same object - its speed en-route was about 3,000 km/hr."

Which could point to a field created by a method of propulsion
upsetting the animals.

But the more close-range dog reactions of extreme fear - and
sickness - are puzzling.

Yup, think I understand; the story is here"
