1915, JICOTEA, LAS VILLAS, CUBA, TWO MEN:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

Albert Rosales indicates that according to his personal investigation, in Jicotea, Las Villas, Cuba, in 1915, late in the evening, two men were patrolling the edge of a sugarcane field on horseback when suddenly as they neared a bend on the trail the horses stopped and would not move, snorting as if in a panic.

The men then noticed what appeared to be a small white sack like "bundle" on the ground near the trail. Both men had the impression that whatever it was, it was a "living" thing.

The bundle now began approaching the now terrified horses. One of the men that was armed with a pistol fired several shots at the thing. Both men were then astonished to see that the "bundle" seemed to become larger every time it was shot at. When it almost as large as the horse the men panicked and fled the area on foot leaving the horses behind.

The next day both horse were found wandering the fields apparently unharmed.

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates that in Jicotea, Las Villas, Cuba, in 1915, late in the evening, "Two men were patrolling the edge of a sugarcane field on horseback when suddenly as they neared a bend on the trail the horses stopped and would not move, snorting as if in a panic. The men then noticed what appeared to be a small white sack like "bundle" on the ground near the trail. Both men had the impression that whatever it was, it was a "living" thing. The bundle now began approaching the now terrified horses. One of the men that was armed with a pistol fired several shots at the thing. Both men were then astonished to see that the "bundle" seemed to become larger every time it was shot at. When it almost as large as the horse the men panicked and fled the area on foot leaving the horses behind. The next day both horse were found wandering the fields apparently unharmed."

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is "Personal Investigation".
