Gila Blend, Arizona, USA, 2002
I'm Robert Ballard. I'm up in Lancaster, California. I'm a Vietnam
veteran. I was in NATO for six years in Germany. After the military I
went to truck driving school and became a truck driver for 20 years.
This incident happened the last year I was driving a truck. It happened
on May 7, 2002 at approximately 4:30 in the morning on Interstate 8 exit
140 in Arizona. I just picked up a load of produce in Yuma, Arizona. I
left Yuma, Arizona and I had to take a whizz. So I pulled off the road
and stopped at exit 140 on Interstate 8. I pulled off the exit ramp
there and I had my high beams on and I noticed a figure to the left side
of the exit ramp, a tall dark figure on the left side of the exit ramp,
so I went to the right side of the exit ramp, slowed down, stopped and
turned off my headlights. I could see a large humanoid figure standing
there holding a carcass of some sort in its hand. It dropped the carcass
on the ground, turned around and looked at me for 4 or 5 seconds and
then started walking over towards my truck. I said, Holy F***! I locked
the door on my truck. Made sure it was locked and it was approaching the
window of my truck. It stopped about 2 feet from the window of my truck.
Its head was as high as the window of my truck. I'm driving a
conventional so the window is about 7 feet off the ground. The head of
this being was slightly above the head of the window. So it had to be at
least 7 feet tall, 7 foot 2. That vicinity.
As it was walking away, I turned on my headlights and I got a real good look at its backside and its legs and then I saw what it was walking towards. At that time, the sun was starting to peek out over the top of the mountains. There was enough light that I could see a large black object sitting in an empty parking lot next to the exit ramp. It walked up to the large black object. It just disappeared inside. I didn't see how it got inside. Then I turned on my spotlight, I could see some of the texture of the outside of this - it looked like the side wall of a tomb is what it looked like. Then it started to rise up off the ground. Made no sound. It got up about 10 to 15 feet above the ground. The vehicle vetted out some red stuff. I could see red stuff shooting out from the back and sides. Then I could see it was a triangle shape. I could see underneath it and it had three tiny marker lights on each corner of the triangle, dull red light in the middle. It accelerated away and was out of sight in about 3 seconds. When it had rose up, it was silhouetted against the morning sun. It was making the sky bright enough to see it was a triangle shaped vehicle. I had never seen anything like it.
So what happened is, I waited about 5 minutes when I knew the being and the vehicle was gone. I unlocked the door. I had my camera with me. I had 5 pictures left on the camera. Got out of the truck and walked across the street of the exit ramp to see what this being had dropped on the side of the exit ramp and when I got over there I shined the flashlight on it. I was surprised that it was a carcass of some kind. Looking at the hooves, I could tell it was a deer. The deer's head was bit clean off and it had discolored fur around its neck. The inside of the deer, the chest cavity, was all completely removed. Its internal organs were all ripped out to the back of the spine. The internal cavity was burned out.”
For a couple of months afterwards, he would travel back and forth from New York to Yuma and would observe similar looking deer and animal carcasses along that same exit ramp. He photographed all of them.
