On This Day in Weird, August 21...
1919: New York's Syracuse Daily Journal reports: "Farmers living near Union Springs have become alarmed over an animal which roves about their farms. It has been seen by people living in the vicinity of Big Gulf, south of Union Springs, and is said to have a head like a lion. A cow owned by John Redman had its tail half bitten off one night recently, and it is thought to be the work of the strange beast. Farmers are getting their shotguns and pistols in working condition and expect to go out on hunting expeditions."
1955: Small UFO occupants with large heads, prominent ears, and luminous torsos reportedly lay siege to a rural home near Hopkinsville, Kentucky, sparking a night of fear and promiscuous, futile gunfire.
