Unexplained sheep attacks 'caused by aliens in UFOs', farmers claimApril 4, 2010
A series of bizarre incidents involving sheep in Shropshire have led to farmers' claims that aliens are attacking their livestock.
Farmers near Shrewsbury claim to have witnessed sheep being "lasered" by unidentified light from UFOs.
They have linked the unexplained incidents, where sheep's brains and eyes were removed, to the mysterious orange lights in the sky.
They have found sheep with "neat holes" while their brains and other internal organs were removed. Other animals have lost eyes or had their flesh "carefully stripped away", usually on the left side.
Phil Hoyle, 53, who has spent almost a decade investigating how the livestock have died, said the UFOs were found to have roamed a 50-mile "corridor" between Shrewsbury and Powys.
Mr Hoyle and 15 members of the Animal Pathology Field Unit, claimed they witnessed UFOs at work last month while working during the night at a Welsh hill farm near Radnor Forest.
"The technology involved in these attacks is frightening," he told The Sun.
"These lights and spheres are clearly not ours.
"They are built by technology and intelligence that's not from here."
He added: "For a short while it looked more like a Star Wars battle."
Next day he interviewed farmers and "all but one had some type of unusual disappearance of animals or deaths with strange injuries", he told the paper.
