Someone believes they saw "entities"

on a rather uncommon case.

in Grand-Mère of which the description of the events
remain one of the most mysterious ones to have been given
to us since the creation of the AQU," said chairman

who crossed the St. Maurice (river) in order to verify the
authenticity of certain facts observed by the witness, went
over to see this information for themselves.

when Mrs. H., coming out of the shower, saw two biological
entities completely covered in white from head to toe, who
seemed to be very interested in the neighbour's garden,
in this case her sister," related Milot.
two entities were described by the witness as being dressed
like astronauts, wearing some kind of helmet on their heads.
"One of the creatures was leaning over and seemed to
be picking something up off the ground. The other stood
nearby. According to the witness, when they walked, they
seemed to float; their walk was unnatural. Their size and
physical appearance were similar to that of humans."

made up of different bright colour nuances, of which the
predominant colour was brown.

located 75 feet from the witness' house. Nowhere else was
the fog present. After about three minutes of observation,
realizing what she was seeing, the witness pulled away from
the window and, a few moments later, when she returned,
the entities had disappeared and the fog was moving away
in the opposite direction."
visited by our representative, ground traces were noted
and photographed. There were four of them; two measuring
12 inches in diameter and two, 10 inches. Soil samples were
taken and will be analysed as soon as possible. We have
also visited Mrs. H.'s sister and we have noticed that where
the entities were seen, there was a garden consisting of
a variety of vegetables. The main witness is 72-years-old,
an independent and intelligent person who does not want
any publicity. She saw something real, but what was its
origin, that's what we are attempting to find out,"
admits Milot, faced with this puzzle.
Spring, after the thaw set in, we discovered holes 2 inches
in diameter and
8 inches deep of which the dirt was different than the rest
of the garden.

show us where the entities were. With precision, she showed
us the spot," explains Gilles Milot.

which seem to correspond to club-feet were also noted.
samples were collected and the members of the AQU noticed
a great difference in the texture of the dirt. "The
dirt found inside the holes seemed to have been completely
sieved and was brown in colour, while the dirt outside the
holes (from 1 to 20 feet away) was of a thick consistency
and rich like normal garden black earth," said Milot.

very mysterious and brings together, in one event, most
of the elements that we encounter in many other reports."

so that they can tell us of other similar cases elsewhere
