PUERTO RICO'S MYSTERY MUMMY

The body of a strange being--allegedly not native to this world--is being hidden from the Federal government's eyes somewhere in Puerto Rico.

A Puerto Rican ufologist, Jorge Martin published photos of what looks like an alien. These photos were in the winter issue of "Evidencia Ovni" magazne. These photos have existed since the 1980's.

The story goes that a cattle rancher in the northern part of Puerto Rico, alarmed at the high number of cattle being mutilated decided enough was enough. He and two others, armed with 30-30 rifles, hid one night determined to capture whoever was mutilating the cattle.

One evening, from beyond a nearby mountain stream, four small, strange creatures walked into his stable and came out with a small cow. They say the cow was floating above the ground, and above the creatures. The rancher and his crew fired at the group, hitting one of them.

The creature fell to the ground as did the cow. The three remaining creatures tried to retrieve the wounded one, which was trying to get to its' feet. The rancher and his friends fired another round of bullets at the creatures, who ran off into the night, leaving their comrade behind. The men ran up to the creature, one of them delivering a crushing blow to the creature's head with a piece of wood, killing it.

This creature has been in and out of freezers for the past decade. The rancher did allow his relatives to photograph it. The rancher has refused to step forward or to allow any authority to examine it due to fears of cover ups, or any other action that may be taken against him to do so.
