A “deer UFO” seemed quite interested in the animals that inhabit a hunting area near the Cumbest Bluff of Jackson County, Mississippi. A nighttime cam recorded images of strange lights hovering over deer, who stare in amazement. That deer in headlights look? Try deer in alien lights.
Says the Inquisitr on April 4: “Deer, UFO sighting photos show the ghostly outline of Bambi lit up by an object in the sky. But what makes this case so interesting is that the 2014 UFO sighting was made by an automated hunting camera.”
The 30-minute footage was captured Feb. 16 by an infrared trail camera set up by Edith and Rainer Shattles, who use the recording to track game, but the images seen on the camera – intensely bright lights descending on the deer and then disappearing – have captured the attention of UFO enthusiasts.
The Daily Mail picks up the story:
A few minutes later, a dim light emerges out of the darkness and gradually grows brighter, eventually materializing into an odd shape in the sky.
The deer are seen bathed in light. Then another sharper beam slices through the frame, focusing like a laser on one of the hoofed animals.
At first glance, the twin lights resemble car headlights, but they are clearly hovering above ground. What’s more, there is no paved road in the woods that could explain the presence of a vehicle.
After watching the video over and over, Rainer Shattles says he's certain that the lights belong to an unidentified flying object, but isn’t too sure about, who, or what, was flying it.
“Well, if it's alien, I'm not sure about that. But it's definitely a UFO,” Shattles said, suggesting that it may just be some sort of “government drone.”
Shattles and his wife are enjoying the attention that this bizarre story is creating. They never thought that the cameras set up to observe animals on their 150 acres of land would record something so "out of this world."
“It's a puzzle that may never be solved and it's one that's kind of fun, adds a little flavor to life,” he concluded.
UFO observers and conspiracy theorists flock to stories like this one. So what do you think could have caused the strange lights? Leave your thoughts below.
