Argentina: Pujato Field Owner Dismisses UFO Involvement
Raúl Marelli, owner of a 32-hectare field in the Pujato area, found a 600 x 2 meter fringe of flatttened vegetation. Local residents stated that an unidentified flying object (UFO) landed on Saturday morning on a cornfield, making its mark.
Marelli, a 62-year-old farmer and cattleman, reported to the constabulary of the locality in Santa Fe to make his report, mainly for the damages suffered. What remains unclear is who or what caused the damage. No crops were stolen and no tracks of vehicles vehicles were found in the area. Only the flattened corn stalks.
“The property was planted three months ago. There are a few months more before harvest and everything looks flattened. It’s a not very straight, rather fertile piece of land, with the plants flattened in the same direction,” the property owner told Radio 2 this morning.
While he acknowledges not having found the tracks of machinery or a vehicle, the man dismissed the possibility that a flying saucer was involved.
“I’ve been living here for many years and there’s never been anything that’s led me to think that. But if you want to investigate and change my mind, I’ve got no problem with it,” he said.
The man recognizes that even if it was a directed attack, the losses are not considerable. “I don’t know what they did it. If it was to cause damage, it was minimum. The finest lot contains 300,000 kilograms of corn. The affected lot has only a thousand, in other words, there are 299,000 left. I don’t understand what their intentions were.”
Police personnel are investigating the event and some researchers are already discussing the possibility that a “crop circle” is involved – what is known as a landing strip for flying saucers. “I don’t share any of those beliefs. I don’t believe,” said the farmer.
