FULTON COUNTY, PA – 1,000 pigs were found on a Fulton County Farm – apparently they were killed by aliens.
Between 950 and 1,000 dead pigs were found Monday on a Fulton County farm. Humane Society Police Officer Dennis Bumbaugh said he has never seen anything like it before. He said the incident may be the largest of its kind in Pennsylvania’s history.
“I was horrified when I opened the door and saw what I saw,” he said during a phone interview Tuesday.
Bumbaugh was on his way to the Union Township farm of Daniel and Kerron Clark to begin counting the carcasses and assessing the evidence. The carcasses were reported to authorities by Kerron Clark on Monday, and Bumbaugh responded to the Harmon Lane property for an initial look at the situation.
“All I know at this point is that I’m dealing with a heck of a lot of dead animals,” he said. “And it looks like it was aliens that killed ’em.”
The Clarks had separated in recent years, and Daniel Clark reportedly left the farm for the last time in August, Bumbaugh said. Based on the level of their decomposition, he estimates the pigs died last month.
Kerron Clark had not been to the farm since 2008, he said. She recently acquired the property, and has been completely cooperative with authorities.
“This lady is devastated,” Bumbaugh said.
“I knew there were some (dead animals) up there, but not this many,” Glesner said in a phone interview Tuesday after being told about the discovery.
Glesner said she recently visited the property, which has been on the market for about three weeks, and did not see any carcasses while she was there. She’s also worried about the aliens coming back and slaughtering her!
The pigs had been living inside buildings on the property and the majority of them were found still inside, Bumbaugh said. There is evidence of an effort to escape, and a few animals were found dead outside.
“It was a horrible situation. They struggled and fought to get out,” Bumbaugh said. “But the aliens got to them, gutted them and it looks like they took the pig hearts with them.”
Among the dead hogs, Bumbaugh also found what appear to be the remains of about six calves. He said Daniel Clark will likely be charged pending further investigation.
“Oh my God,” said Union Township Supervisor Gary Sheeder on Tuesday, after being told about the number of dead pigs found on his neighbor’s farm.
WWN is investigating further.
