BEG. MARCH 1978, RONDA, MALAGA, SPAIN, PEOPLE:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

UFO writer J.J. Benitez reportedly indicated in a 1990 book that in Ronda, Spain, early in March 1978, at midnight, people were watching television at their isolated farm and had their pet wolfhound with them, when the signal on the TV set began to scramble and they began hearing a loud whistling sound.

The dog became disturbed and started barking running towards the front door. The witness, his son, and the dog went outside, looking for possible intruders.

At the end of the path leading to their house they were able to see a very tall figure approaching in a strange sideways movement, clearly visible were two long metallic blue tubular legs like protrusions, because of the darkness no other features could be discerned.

The creature stopped at the entrance to their yard, at that same moment the witness released his wolfhound, both man and animal ran towards the being, but the figure had somehow vanished without a trace and was nowhere in sight.

Searching the area, strange deep tracks were found and also the mutilated body of a cat that had been neatly cut in half was found at the site.

Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Ronda, Spain, on early March 1978, at midnight, the witnesses were all watching television at their isolated farm one night and had their pet wolfhound with them, when the signal on the TV set began to scramble and they began hearing a loud whistling sound. The dog became disturbed and started barking running towards the front door. The witness, his son, and the dog went outside, looking for possible intruders. At the end of the path leading to their house they were able to see a very tall figure approaching in a strange sideways movement, clearly visible were two long metallic blue tubular legs like protrusions, because of the darkness no other features could be discerned. The creature stopped at the entrance to their yard, at that same moment the witness released his wolfhound, both man and animal ran towards the being, but the figure had somehow vanished without a trace and was nowhere in sight. Searching the area, strange deep tracks were found and also the mutilated body of a cat that had been neatly cut in half was found at the site.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is "J J Benitez, La Quinta Columna."

Points to consider:

The story comes from a sensationalist book.
