Reported activity
[edit] Activity frequency
Activity at Skinwalker Ranch in Utah proved sporadic from the late 1990s onwards, with periods of high activity offset by periods of dormancy[6]. Many of the more unusual phenomena were transient, sometimes happening only once, or often reported as just occurring for a couple of weeks and then disappearing forever, making it difficult for investigators to get results or draw firm conclusions.

The exact pattern of activity on the ranch has proved difficult to identify during this timespan, due to the secrecy and inactivity of NIDSci. However, in February 2006 George Knapp declared on the Coast to Coast AM radio show that the strange phenomena had started up again. He also stated that security measures were being used to guard the premises, and that anyone trespassing would be prosecuted.

[edit] Types of activity
A wide variety of paranormal activities have allegedly been encountered at the ranch. Unusual or unidentified aircraft, balls of light, poltergeist activity, cattle mutilation, and strange creatures have been reported.[7] Chapter 14 in Kelleher and Knapp's book "Hunt for the Skinwalker" asserts that after numerous interviews with neighbors to the Gorman ranch, many spoke of unusual experiences to NIDSci researchers (one, identified as "Mr. Gonsalez" alleged that he had unusual experiences with cattle disappearances). They also claim local Ute Indians have a history of encounters with unusual objects and creatures [8].

[edit] Unidentified vehicles
A refrigerator-shaped object about the size of an RV with a white light at the front and a red light at the back was reported by the Gorman family prior to NIDSci's arrival. The vehicle allegedly retreated from Gorman and his nephew as they approached it. It then floated up into the clear sky and flew away.[2] The vehicle bore a limited resemblance to a Chupa, a type of UFO reported in Brazil.

A black triangular object resembling an F-117 Nighthawk stealth fighter was also allegedly witnessed by Mrs. Gorman. The vehicle hovered about twenty feet above her parked car before it vanished.[2]

Known by locals as "ghost lights", the Gormans claimed that they could also move towards people as if to play a game of "chicken"[1].

[edit] Orbs and floating lights
Glowing orbs of various colors, particularly orange and blue, sometimes blinky, were allegedly seen on the property. They were described as ranging from basketball- to baseball-sized, and some contained what appeared to be swirling liquid. These objects were allegedly capable of affecting electrical items, particularly lights merely by their presence, and of melting animals, such as dogs.[2] This was possibly due to extreme heat or radiation that might have emanated from the orbs.

Another phenomena observed by the Gormans were large orange circles that floated in the sky and occasionally expelled orbs and unidentified beings. Mr. Gorman claimed blue sky was visible through one such circle he witnessed at night.[6]

[edit] Cattle mutilations and strange creatures
The Gormans allegedly witnessed numerous cattle mutilations on the ranch during their stay.[2] Some common traits of these included:

One ear being cut off
Excision of the cattle's genitals
The rectum being 'cored out' of the cattle
Exsanguination, some instances of which took place very quickly (twenty minutes, on one occasion)[citation needed]
Numerous encounters with unidentified or strangely behaving creatures allegedly occurred on the ranch. In some tales, the creatures were reminiscent of dogs or hyenas. The first unusual encounter the Gormans had on the ranch involved what appeared to be a very large wolf on one of their first days after moving to the ranch. The animal was not aggressive towards the family, but when it attempted to capture a calf, Mr. Gorman shot at the creature. The shots had no noticeable effect and the creature eventually left the homestead. Gorman later found a hunk of flesh from the animal that smelled of burning sulfur or rotten meat.[2]

Other creatures, including what appeared to be Bigfoot and an unknown, semi-transparent entity, were also said to have been encountered on the property.[2]

Exotic, multicolored birds were also reported on the ranch[2], although such instances could be explained by the wide variety of rare and exotic bird species that are seen in Utah[9].

[edit] Poltergeist activity
Trickster or poltergeist-like activity was reported both inside the Gormans' home and on their property.[2] Claims included doors opening and slamming shut, salt and pepper being switched, and objects disappearing and reappearing later in strange places. One story told of four large bulls that had disappeared from a pasture found later in a cramped cattle trailer, seemingly entranced.[10] The Gormans also reported on instances of what sounded like heavy machinery being moved beneath the ranch, and unintelligible voices emanating from the sky[10].

[edit] Terrain alterations and unusual landmarks
Other strange phenomena involving dirt, grass, and ice allegedly occurred on the property. These included several hundred pounds of soil being mysteriously removed from the ground, crop circles appearing in long grass on the property and an ice disc found in an irrigation channel. There are also 3 "bait pens" located on the property. These pens were errected to both protect the observer and to offer him or her a visual advantage while observing the property. Typically a young calf was staked to the ground next one of these pens.[2].

the majority of those supposed accounts i have seen with my own eyes and so have other investigators.  Skinwalker is one of the few non/military (officially) places where you can witness paranormal and alien events on a almost daily basis and close hand.

Mr.Black, I am very curious as to what is going on there and am interested in hearing some thoughts on it.  If it is some sort of gateway to other dimensions or a paranormal hotbed maybe even an experiment gone wrong, the implications are incredible.  I would be curious to hear from the previous owners who sold to Sherman.  Has anything ever been published about them?

supposedly there are members of the Utah Ufo Hunters team that have contact information for the previous owners of the ranch.  They too unfortunately are shying away from media attention.
