Did a UFO steal sheep from Carmarthenshire field?

IT sounds like a scene from a cheaply-made sci-fi movie but Dyfed-Powys Police received a report of a UFO abducting a Carmarthenshire sheep.

The call was one of 27 in the last 12 years reporting possible sightings of UFOs in the Dyfed-Powys area.

A member of the public called police in 2011 to tell them he had seen a spaceship beam up a sheep from a field near Llanybydder.

The call was never verified.

Other sightings on the supernatural log include a caller from Carmarthen who saw a long streak of light, standing still in the sky, and a Llandysul resident reported seeing a triangle of lights hanging in the sky.

Most of the reports were unexplained in the data but some mysteries were solved. A Glanaman resident called police in 2009 to report that he had seen an orange sphere travelling slowly through the sky.

This was later identified as a Chinese lantern. West-Walian UFO expert Gavin Davies said reports of animal abductions by aliens, such as the one in Llanybydder, are rare in the UK. He said: "The only one like that I have heard of was in Broadhaven in the 1970s. A whole herd of cows was moved from one field to another.

"A man was working in a milking shed. He had only popped in for a minute and when he came out the cows were all in a different field."

He added: "In Canada there are lots of these stories. There are a lot of cattle mutilations in North America.

"Cows go missing and they are found miles away. They are missing their anuses, their eyes, their horns and they are found miles away. That's one of the biggest unsolved mysteries."

In the US and Canada thousands of animals are reported as abducted by aliens each year. But Mr Davies said most reports of UFO sightings to police have perfectly reasonable explanations.

He said: "About 99 per cent of stuff is explainable, then that one per cent fits into the category. Is it something military or is it something else? There are so many hoaxes."
