CARDIFF, Wales, April 5 (UPI) -- A British UFO hunter said he is convinced extraterrestrials are behind recent sheep mutilations on the country's farms -- and claims he witnessed such an event.
Phil Hoyle, 53, of Shrewsbury, England -- who said he has been investigating British livestock mutilations for nine years -- said he and members of his Animal Pathology Field Unit team witnessed two UFOs using some sort of light to zap sheep and releasing smaller versions of themselves closer to the animals, The Sun reported Monday.
"For a short while it looked more like a Star Wars battle," he said of the purported incident at a Welsh farm near Radnor Forest.
"The technology involved in these attacks is frightening. These lights and spheres are clearly not ours. They are built by technology and intelligence that's not from here," Hoyle said.
Hoyle said he interviewed area farmers the following day and "all but one had had some type of unusual disappearance of animals or deaths with strange injuries."
