Animal Reactions To UFOs? A Summary Of The Evidence
By Joan Woodward

Summarized from the original paper, Animal Reactions to UFOs: A
Preliminary Investigation from the Animals' Perspective, MUFON
Special Publication, July 2005, 60 pp, and also published as a
submitted paper in the 36th Annual International UFO Symposium,
(2005) pp. 229-278.

One of the many features of the NICAP site is Categorical
Research of UFO Sightings. These include 11 categories, such as
Close Encounters, E-M Cases, Radar Cases, and, of interest
here, Animal Effects Cases (Category 4).

This summary presents trends and ideas suggested by 104 of the
cases currently in Category 4. More sightings with animal
reactions (ARs) are needed, and hopefully this summary will
serve to invite and encourage other investigators to offer data
or references that might be added to Category 4, thus clarifying
and further exploring the data presented here. Sightings with
reactions from a variety of animals are obviously of interest,
but also of great interest are (1) sightings where animals are
present but do not react and (2) sightings determined to be IFOs
where animals are present and either react or do not react.

The study included only ARs that occurred simultaneously with
UFO sighting events and only sighting reports that have some
detail about the AR. It did not include either abduction or
creature reports. The sightings were examined in detail in an
effort to attain information about the following: How did the
animals react? Do any consistencies emerge when animals react
(or did not react)? How did reactions differ between different
types of animals with different perceptual abilities and
different behaviors? Do ARs suggest anything about the object to
which they were reacting? Do ARs tell us anything about the
overall sighting? Results are summarized as follows.
