He walked down the street with the dog and walked with it to the neighboring forest, behind which the Cascade Mountains began. This is where Jonathan Reed’s mysterious alien encounter took place.
In October 1996, psychologist Jonathan Reed, as usual, went for a walk with his dog, a golden retriever named Susie. Reed lived in a private home in Seattle, Washington, USA.
Before Reed and his dog had time to enter the woods, something caught the dog’s attention, he became alert, then barked wildly and ran for the trees. He seemed to smell prey, most likely some wild animal.
Reed usually didn’t pay attention to this, thinking that Susie was chasing a squirrel or a rabbit, but then he remembered that in the morning of the same day he also went for a walk with Susie in the forest and noticed a large animal in the thickets close up, very bear-like.
When Reed realized that Susie might have smelled a bear and heard the dog’s growl again and a noise that sounded like it was attacking someone. He became very alarmed and ran in that direction.
Reed claimed that as he walked out of the woods into the clearing, he saw his dog growling and barking at a strange humanoid creature sitting on the ground.
According to him, the creature was about the height of a 12-year-old child and wore a kind of seamless black one-piece jumpsuit. The humanoid stood up and “vibrated” strangely, then suddenly rushed at Reed’s dog, grabbed it, and with one blow tore the poor animal in half.
After that, the humanoid looked in Reed’s direction, who was simply shocked. Reed though scared, was a strong man and had time to prepare for the attack.
As soon as this creature approached, he with all his might struck it on the head with a large hair, after which the humanoid staggered and fell lifeless on the grass. Reed felt him stop moving and look completely dead. Then Reed heard a low hum somewhere nearby. Reed looked for the source of the noise and soon came across a large black object with a smooth obsidian-like surface (volcanic rock) floating in the air just above the ground.
He had a small video camera with him, and he stated that he was able to photograph this object in the woods.
The air in this place was as if charged with electricity, like before a storm, but he decided to carefully approach the object to touch it, but the object suddenly disappeared, after which the buzzing stopped and the whole clearing was submerged in silence.
Reed then returned to where the dead alien and his slain dog lay. After recovering from the shock, he decided to take the alien’s body home, wrapping it in something (unspecified) and then stuffing it into the freezer.
The next day, Reed inspected the creature’s body, filming it with a video camera, and then, at one point, the alien blinked and let out a cry, proving that it was still alive. According to Reed, he also recorded this moment on tape.
In addition, according to Reed, he noticed through the window that some “white vans with people” were standing near his house, watching him intently.
Then the alien creature miraculously regained consciousness, escaped from Reed’s house, and ran into the woods. Reed ran after him, and when, after an unsuccessful search, he returned home, he found that everything in the house had been ransacked and that all his photos and videos of the alien were missing.
According to Reed, he only had a few materials left, which he hid better than the rest. He also claimed that mysterious people started following him and once they even shot at him, only injuring him in the shoulder, when he was chasing the alien.
This made him fear for his life and several years he kept quiet about what happened to him. When Dr. Reed finally came forward with his strange story, it caused quite a stir among UFO fanatics, sparking much speculation and controversy.
He appeared on many radios shows talking about his case, including the program of paranormal researcher Art Bell, and also spoke at conferences about UFOs and even wrote a book called “Link — An Extraterrestrial Odyssey”.
He also published some of his salvaged photos of the alleged alien and even videos, which also caused much controversy as to their veracity.
Not surprisingly, this story was very popular in the United States for many years. Here is the video:
