UFO landing site blamed for making dogs sick

Some dogs being walked through Rendlesham Forest in Suffolk, England have allegedly become unwell.
Situated near the Air Force base at RAF Woodbridge, the area of woodland where several US servicemen famously encountered a strange object back in December 1980 has since become something of a tourist attraction that is frequented by visitors and dog walkers on a regular basis.

Recently however reports have emerged suggesting that something in the forest may be making dogs sick - perhaps even something relating to the UFO landing incident itself.

It wouldn't be the first time that something like this has happened either - earlier this year one of the servicemen who originally attended the scene, John Burroughs, was awarded compensation due to the amount of radiation he was exposed to during the incident 35 years ago.

But could there really still be something in the woods capable of hurting people's dogs ?
Caroline Peters from Felsted in Essex is one of the dog owners affected by the problem. After spending only a short time in Rendlesham both her dogs took ill and almost died.

"We were there for about an hour-and-a-half," she said. "Ruby was off the lead but Sparkie was on the lead. We saw toadstools but they have been ruled out – there was nothing in their tests to suggest there had been any form of poisoning."

While some people subscribe to the idea that there may still be some remnant of the original UFO in the woods at Rendlesham, critics argue that there is not enough evidence to support this and that it is more likely that the dogs had suffered from a condition known as Seasonal Canine Illness.

"Even today ufologists squabble over what really happened at Rendlesham Forest in late December 1980," said UFO researcher and author Nigel Watson. "Did an alien spaceship land here? Were the US airmen who saw the UFO fooled by the light from a nearby lighthouse ? Or was it a hoax ?"

My dog chased a rabbit and got so excited that he had to stop and do his business. That's exactly why people and dogs need exercise, it aids digestion. I was surprised when I got back to England that assembly didn't have morning exercises. In the schools I went to in Oz did.

There were high levels of radiation detected in the area after the incident. The sickness in the dogs could be caused by that. As for aliens, I actually quite like the theory that the visitors were time travellers from the distance future. One of the service personnel involved in the Rendlesham Forest Incident, Sgt Penniston, received a binary code message from the strange craft - which had strange heiroglyphics written on the outside of it. Penniston touched the heiroglyphs, which felt rough like sandpaper compared to the smoothness of the rest of the craft. It then started to glow brilliantl... [More]

The claims of radiation are without merit. According to the manufacturers of the instrument that was used to take radiation readings in Rendlesham Forest in December 1980, the measurements were “of little or no significance”. From the evidence of the real-time tape recording made during the investigation, it is shown that the readings are simply background levels and do not support the claim that anything unusual happened in Rendlesham Forest. Onsite checks made within a few years of the incident revealed no unusual radiation at the site. http://www.ianridpath.com/ufo/rendlesham4.htm As for th... [More]

My dig hasn't gotten sick, but he did hide under the table when he hear a really loud sound. Do you guys think it was aliems??!!!! Did a object land near him that was witnessed by several high ranking army personnel who are trained observers, recorded on gieger counters, indentation marks and so on? No? Then saying what you said has no point. I have to ask, why are you even hear if you're going to ridicule everything that is posted? Don't bother replying, it's rhetorical.

This is where the problems start. 1. The claim of high ranking army personnel is what we call an appeal to authority - a poor argument 2. The trained observer claim. Are you serious? Can you tell me if they took Observer 101 in college? 3. The geiger cou... [More]

A concentration of dogs is likely to lead to a concentration of dog germs. The other term for a 'dog park' is 'toilet'.

Black Monk - There were high levels of radiation detected in the area after the incident. HOGWASH. That's obviously NOT true. The results have been posted and they show no such thing. Did a object land near him that was witnessed by several high ranking army personnel who are trained observers, recorded on gieger counters, indentation marks and so on? No.. so it's EXACTLY like this sighting, where that didn't happen either. This story is a load of dog's bullocks.. (hmm, I think I mispelled that.. )
