END OF FEBRUARY 1970, TERRACE, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, A BOY:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

It appears that ufologist John Magor reported a strange encounter in Terrace, British Columbia, Canada, on late February 1970 in the early afternoon, when an unidentified second grade boy was returning to school from his lunch hour and encountered a strange little figure, about his own height, under four feet, near a clump of trees in a field.

The figure had a greenish toned skin color and was in bare feet. Nearby was "round thing" from which the boy assumed the entity had emerged, although he had not seen this happen.

The entity "jabbered" at the boy in an incomprehensible language, then removed an object from a belt around his waste that looked like some type of "gun," from it he squirted a kind of putty substance into the palm of his hand, which the boy noticed had "long fingernails." He handed the substance to the boy who, confused by what was going on, began to move away; when he turned to look again, both "man" and object had vanished.

He later confided the story to one of his teachers; he was questioned and asked about the "putty", which they boy showed him; yellowish in color and flecked with green, it was about one-eighth inch thick and the size of a golf ball, quite hard in texture. The boy put the object in his pocket and as he was about to go off, the teacher noticed it on the ground nearby; it seemed to have definitely shrunk in size. The boy put it back in his pocket and the last any saw of it.

Narratives:

[Ref. jb1:] JANET AND COLIN BORD:

The authors indicate that in the end of February 1970, in Terrace, British Columbia, Canada, a schoolboy met a little green man who spoke to him in an incomprehensible language and offered him an odd substance, before disappearing. This substance sublimated or volatilized.

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Terrace, British Columbia, Canada, on late February 1970 in the early afternoon, an unidentified second grade boy was returning to school from his lunch hour when he encountered a strange little figure, about his own height, under four feet, near a clump of trees in a field.

The figure had a greenish toned skin color and was in bare feet. Nearby was "round thing" from which the boy assumed the entity had emerged, although he had not seen this happen.

The entity "jabbered" at the boy in an incomprehensible language, then removed an object from a belt around his waste that looked like some type of "gun," from it he squirted a kind of putty substance into the palm of his hand, which the boy noticed had "long fingernails" (claws?). He handed the substance to the boy who, confused by what was going on, began to move away; when he turned to look again, both "man" and object had vanished.

He later confided the story to one of his teachers; he was questioned and asked about the "putty", which they boy showed him; yellowish in color and flecked with green, it was about one-eighth inch thick and the size of a golf ball, quite hard in texture. The boy put the object in his pocket and as he was about to go off, the teacher noticed it on the ground nearby; it seemed to have definitely shrunk in size. The boy put it back in his pocket and the last any saw of it.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is John Magor, Canadian UFO Report #7.

Points to consider:

The high strangeness late report seems to have only one witness, who is a child, not named. Nothing appears as to exactly who is reporting that his teacher saw the strange substance, and on the whole the entire event seems to have a very anecdotic nature, standing for now with totally insufficient information as of the chain of reporting.

It should be noted that Janet and Colin Bord, authors who are inclined to defend a thesis of a certain reality of the fairies and others gnomes, do not mention the object that could have been the entity's "UFO", the omission of this element giving a fairy report tone rather than a UFO with occupant report.

But of course the report by the boy that the little green man was barefoot does not make this story sound as a credible extraterrestrial visitor encounter.
