1969 - Two hours later, at 7:30 p.m. CDT in Rising Sun, Indiana George Kaiser noticed a strange figure 25 feet away. The being was the size of a man and covered with black fur. The head sat directly on its shoulders and the face was black, with close-set eyes and a very low forehead. When Kaiser made a move to get into his car, the creature grunted, jumped over a ditch, and ran down the road at high speed. Footprints were found that showed only four toes. On the following night a UFO was observed over the same area by neighbors. (Source: David F. Webb and Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1969-37, citing Jerome Clark and Loren Coleman).

(Sources: D. N. Mansell, Awareness, July 1978, p. 12; Greer (South Carolina) Citizen, May 31, 1978).

1979 - In Bukit Mertajam on the island of Pinang, Malaysia six school children reported sighting a landed object and four tiny humanoid figures near it in the middle of the afternoon. The creatures were only about 4 inches tall. One of the students attempted to catch one of the creatures but was shot in the hand. The creature then shot at a brick, breaking it into pieces. Afterwards the creatures ran back into their tiny craft. Another student reportedly grabbed the small object and was shocked by an electric current. The object then took off, and an adult witness watched the object taking off. (Source: Admad Jamaludin, A Summary of UFO and Related Events in Malaysia, p. 81).

1990 - Driving to work in Warrior, Alabama at 4:35 a.m. a man saw a boomerang-shaped object with a fan tail approach from the front, hesitate, and then pass 15-20 feet over his truck at a leisurely speed. It had six big lights in front. He watched it until it was lost from view amid the rooflines in the vicinity. The UFO apparently overflew a shale strip mine in the area.
