London, Nov 2 (ANI): A UFO has reportedly been caught on tape beaming up a buffalo into their spaceship.
Pensioner Derek Bridges, 69, filmed the entire scene from his window after spotting pulsating glowing orbs hovering over a neighbouring farm at his house near Basingstoke, Hampshire late at night.
He saw two bright lights hovering high over the fields, while an animal appeared to be dangling below before vanishing into them, and just before the UFO disappeared into the night, he heard a high-pitched screeching noise.
"I couldn't believe my eyes. I'm convinced it is the real thing," the Sun quoted him as saying.
Bridges quickly grabbed his camcorder and began filming the incident above 2,500-acre Laverstoke Park Farm in Overton village at about 10.30pm.
It has one of the country's biggest herds of water buffalo and is close to a military base used by special forces.
"I just looked out of the window before going to bed. I wasn't sure what I was seeing at the time," he described.
"I have a keen eye and I could see something glowing which looked dark red about half a mile away.
"I kept looking at it for about 20 minutes and then suddenly a bright white light appeared which was very powerful.
"At that point I picked up my video camera and filmed what I saw. I saw two white lights lifting up and I just kept filming. The lights were high in the sky. They couldn't have been anything on the ground.
"I did not realise at the time that something was dangling beneath but when I played it back the next day on a big screen I could see it there.
"I believe it's a UFO and this animal, which could be a bison or a horse, seems to be being beamed up.As far as I know, this is the first time anyone in the world has filmed animal abduction, so obviously I'm pretty chuffed," he stated.
UFO experts claim there is a long history of cattle being abducted by aliens for research, particularly in the US, sometimes being returned alive or mutilated.
There are often reports of animal carcasses found lying in fields with body parts mysteriously missing and their blood drained without the skin being spilt.
Divorced Bridges told how he spoke to a farm worker who said they had found a couple of dead animals around the time the lights were filmed.
The farm, owned by 1979 Formula 1 champ Jody Scheckter, insists no cattle have gone missing.
"We have never seen any aliens or UFOs around here," farm boss Sara Whittall said.
"All our animals have been accounted for, so we have not had any abductions either," she added.
The footage has now been screened at a conference of UFO hunters in Scarborough, and expert Nick Pope, who used to run the British Government's UFO Project, said the latest footage needed urgent investigation by the authorities.
"If this footage is genuine, it could be highly significant," he stated.
UFO hunter Kenneth Parsons of the British Earth and Aerial Mysteries Society said he was convinced it was the first ever footage showing aliens abducting cattle.
"This footage is like the holy grail. This is the first time anything like this has been filmed so clearly," Parsons said.
"There are no street lamps or pylons where the footage was filmed, just fields, and it is usually pitch black and silent at night, so there is no simple alternative explanation.
"We are very excited," he added. (ANI)
