UFO Cattle Abduction, Twin Falls, Idaho, Sept. 7, 1956

One of the earliest reports of alien abduction from Twin Falls, Idaho, Sept. 7, 1956, more notable that the abductee was a 400-pound steer. UFOs and cattle,  a puzzling connection.

Sometimes a non-vital stories went out on wire services and local papers saved them as filler items, the editors not noticing later updates. This is an example, printed September 10, 1956.

The Rest of the Story

However, a Twin Falls editor had already cracked the case and published the story the day before.
Or, so he claimed.

As with so many of the most interesting UFO cases featured here at The Saucers That Time Forgot, Project Blue Book has no file on this incident. However the files do include a clipping:
