In light of the fact that I haven't put together yet the entry that I want to put up, I decided to try something different and put up a short list of some various High Strangeness cases. There is no theme or pattern to the cases selected, these are just a random sample of reports taken from Albert Rosales' Humanoid Sighting Reports catalog at http://ufoinfo.com/humanoid/index.shtml. I make no claim as to the credibility of these reports, I merely present them as food for thought. So, with that said, let the strangeness begin...
Near Allende, Nuevo Leon, Mexico
Date: July 20 1994
At a local ranch, a farm worker was on his way to eat lunch when as he passed near a local cemetery a figure suddenly loomed in front of him, coming from behind some rocks about 50 meters away. Thinking that it was another worker he approached the figure, but suddenly realized that the figure was half human, half bird. The strange humanoid ignored the witness and continued on his way, as it reached a nearby crossroads, it opened its huge wings, but then continued on his way, quickly disappearing from sight in the fields.

The witness had stopped on Brownstown Road to change a flat tire when suddenly a seven foot tall, green colored, scaly creature with glowing red eyes began running towards him on two legs from an adjacent field about 30 yards away. The witness jumped into the car and sped away but the creature caught up with him, grabbed the door handle, and then jumped on the roof of the car. The witness was able to see that the creature had three fingers on each hand and long black fingernails.

Marko Batau was walking from Chawarura Shopping Center and as he approached the Hunyani River, he saw what appeared to be a white woman basking in the sun and sitting on a rock, half immersed in a pool of water. The woman was naked and Marko was surprised at this. Then he noticed that what he initially thought to be her leg, drawn up on the rock, was actually a scaled fish tail. The woman did not notice him at first, until he deliberately made a noise while walking on the gravel to get closer, and in an instant she disappeared into the water. A few days later, his curiosity aroused, Marko took the same route home. To his amazement, the woman was there, basking on the rock again. But not only that: this time there was laundry laid out on some stones to dry, with some draped over the bushes nearby. Unfortunately, in his astonishment and perhaps some fear, he did not see what type of washing it was, whether clothing or merely pieces of cloth. Again Marko drew nearer to get a closer view. Suddenly, the woman became aware of him and looked at him as though admonishing him. The next thing, she had disappeared in the water. The following week, Marko deliberately took this rather isolated shortcut home. Immediately when he reached the pool on the river, he saw the same creature there. Only this time, she was holding a baby in her arms and giving it a bath. Still puzzled by what he was seeing, Marko tried to draw closer to verify what he was seeing, but the moment the woman heard his footsteps on the gravel, she and the baby disappeared into the water together.

While walking to an outside commode located behind his trailer home, the witness saw a silver disc shaped object hovering outside his bedroom window. It was described as bigger than a panel van. It was stationary and was silent. It had dull white lights around its perimeter. Through a large vertical window in the craft, the witness saw a man wearing coveralls looking back at him. The man had a slight grin on his face, but was normal looking. The interior of the craft was pinkish. There was a sudden flash and the craft disappeared. Later around 0130A, the son of the witness saw a flash in the sky.

A British naturalist and some colleagues were conducting some research in the area after being notified by a local of "something" strange that was seen earlier on the year. As they stood at the edge of some woods by a quarry they suddenly spied an extraordinary entity. Measuring 2.5 ft or son in length, it resembled a serpentine dragon with four short limbs, but its head was shaped very like that of a sea horse, and it was airborne---undulating and wriggling as it flew about 10 ft above the surface of the quarry in a wide circle. They were unable to recall seeing any wings, but it had a long tail that terminated in a pair of horizontal, whale like flukes. The entity was green in color and shimmered somewhat, but appeared solid, not translucent or ethereal, and they watched it for 3-4 minutes, at a distance of approximately 50 ft, before it finally vanished into one of the numerous caves and large crevices pitting the quarry. The naturalist had the distinct impression while watching it that this creature was deliberately seeking to keep them at bay, warning them off from approaching further into its territory.

A passenger onboard a bus glanced out the window as the bus stopped to let another car pass and was startled to see, standing on a peat field a small human like figure about 18 inches tall. It appeared to have his foot on a spade as if in the act of digging. He was described as having a thin, keen face, brown curly hair, wearing a bright blue coat with a very white shirt with rolled up sleeves, and he had a small bag at his side. She lost sight of the figure as the bus drove away.

Two men in their late thirties were on the way home from fishing when on impulse they decided to pull over on Rio Dam and throw their lines for one last time. They were both about to cast the lines when they noticed an oval shaped craft flying low over the lake and approaching them. The craft was rusty to brownish purple in color and had a dull "matte to purple finish." The object had about five portholes that emitted a green "fluorescent light" from inside. From the front of the object two purple pinkish beams of light swept forward and down to Rio Lake. The beams appeared to have "substance" inside them, apparently sucking up water from the river. The craft reached to about 100 feet away from the witnesses then they saw an entity inside the object. The entity had a leathery, wrinkled looking face and large pointed ears. Its skin was of a light brownish color, it had a round mouth, round eyes, and its face was flattened against the rectangular porthole of the object. It also had two hands thrown up against the window near its head. It moved its mouth and appeared to be exclaiming in great surprise upon seeing that he was being watched. Immediately the object accelerated to a high speed and continued its course quickly disappearing from sight at very low altitude over the dam.

Since early January numerous residents of this community in Cordoba have reported the presence of a bizarre creature they call a “lobizon” (wolfman). The intruder has attempted to enter local residents while at the same time emitting blood curling howls. It generally targets homes where there are no men around; it attempts to enter the home through the rear open patio area. Thankfully so far he has no been able to gain access to any of the residences where women and children have been alone there to confront him. Several women have described the entity as very tall, hairy, thin, and very agile, with blood shot eyes and wearing all black clothing. Police has failed to locate the mysterious intruder.

After this she saw in a meadow near her home three creatures described as resembling tiny "tree stumps," orange, blue, white, yellow and pink colored. The three beings walked silently across the meadow and soon disappeared from sight. By mid-October, a total of 5 persons in the vicinity had reported seeing moving stump like creatures, at 2 locations east of Toledo Oregon.

Near Listowel, County Kerry, Ireland
Date: middle of December 1910
Time: about midnight
Two men encountered strange lights near Listowel. They noticed a light about a mile ahead of them. At first they thought it was simply a light in a house, but on drawing closer they could see that it was moving up and down, to and fro; diminishing to a spark, then expanding into a yellow luminous flame. Before arriving to Listowel they were able to distinguish two lights. Suddenly both of these expanded into yellow sheets of light about six feet high by four feet across. In the midst of each light they saw "a radiant being having human form." Only the general shape of the figures could be seen. The lights came together so that the beings could be seen side by side within the brilliant illumination. A house intervened between the travelers (who were still moving on) and the lights, and they saw no more of them.

Near Acapulco Mexico
Date: January 1954
The witness was driving his vehicle when he was suddenly overcome by a strong state of lethargy and pulled over to the side of the road. Moments later not far ahead on the road he saw a group of men clad in coveralls with wide belts, gathered around a brightly lit object. Before he knew what was happening several tall longhaired men were escorting him towards the object. He felt a slight buzzing sound as he entered the craft. The witness was given a detailed tour of the object and shown a screen on the vehicle's walls where he was able to review the smallest detail of his life. He was then given a ride and apparently was able to see the earth through a porthole on the object. The longhaired aliens die not mentioned their planet of origin.

The witness was returning home from work and was driving through a very isolated forested and hilly area. Suddenly his high beams illuminated a very large creature or “animal”. It was on all fours, and the witness guessed that it was at least six feet long from its head to rump not counting its very bushy tail. And stood at least 3 ft high on all fours, the creature jumped into the ditch and the witness stopped his car shining his headlights directly at the creature. He described the creature as a “beautiful” gray and white in color with a white wolf-like face. The creature did not make any threatening moves but the witness remained in his vehicle and said the creature sort of “looked inside of him”. It quickly disappeared into the woods after that.

Mr. Harry White was awakened by noises coming from outside his opened window, he sat up in bed, and he was very alert since his cat had been keeping him awake all night. He could see most of his yard which he scanned (he possesses exceptional night vision) suddenly his eyes landed on an “object” that seemed out of place and moved with blinding speed behind a small metal building. It had been totally dark in his room but this figure that was light colored and perhaps 3ft tall, seemed to know that the witness noticed it. Perhaps 5 minutes later the proximity lights came on and he herd noises on the roof. His room is located next to an attic over the garage. He then heard what he could only describe as breathing for about 5-10minutes and when he put his ear to the wall something was scraped down the wall. Strangely he was not afraid at the time but gets really scared when he thinks about it now. In the morning he searched the backyard with his Mag-light which immediately went dead. He further described the figure as having a head a torso and being the size of a small child. He states that he had never seen anything move with the speed that he witnessed that night. He has trouble recalling the sequence of events and thinks that he could not account for as much as an hour between the time he heard the scratching noise on the wall and actually walking outside to investigate.
