An odd event from Jose Antonio Caravaca

Location. Villaviciosa de Odon, Madrid, Spain

Date: December 2012 Time: 6:30 a.m. – 7: 00 a.m.

The parents of Carlos Martinez Pedraza was staying at their private villa in a gated community when one early morning they woke up to a very strange noise coming from the garden.

It sounded like many squeals and yelps all at the same time. When they looked out the window which overlooked the garden, they did not see anything. It was almost dawn, so they turned on the outside patio lights and at this point they saw ‘hundreds’ of squirrels gathered inside the patio in the garden.

They were more than mildly surprised as they usually see 2 or 3 squirrels at the time but never this many, it was as if all the squirrels in the area that morning in the patio, all ‘screaming’ at the same time. They didn’t have an explanation. The strangest thing would come later.

When they turned off the outside lights the couple noticed something very strange floating over the garden. It resembled a long thin ‘doll-like’ figure. It had long arms and legs without any apparent muscle texture, it seemed flexible or “rubbery” and floated in a horizontal position facing towards the ground giving the impression that it was carried by the wind, but there was no noticeable wind. It seemed to be faintly luminous that seemed to emanate from inside the figure.

The figure wore a full-body red coverall, its face was very pale and it had a pair of two large round black eyes that appeared to be staring at the ground. It never turned and it was only seen in profile. They didn’t see a mouth or a nose, the red coverall covered the head and they didn’t see any ears. It seemed to be about 3-meters long and floated about 5-minutes over the garden.

All of the sudden the strange figure seemed to turn and vanished in plain sight “as if switching off a light”. The moment the floating figure vanished the squirrels were suddenly silent. It appeared to the witnesses that the bizarre floating being had somehow attracted the hundreds of squirrels.



  • I would say it's a case of Folie à deux, OR it's possible that it's only a single subject who only imagined (and then remembers) that the other 'parent' was also present within the hallucination. The recounting of the story doesn't really give any specifics as to whether or not both parents agree with each other in their account. So we can't really tell. How many different people would actually attest to there being 'hundreds of squirrels'?

  • Ah yes. Another "flying humanoid" I would presume. And a squirrel loving one at that!

  • Rich,

    If you like our French work regarding UFO cases, here is one my great and close friends investigation about a "Flying Humanoid". It is in French, I regret, but a "school case" imho how mundane / ordinary stimulus/i can produce extraordinary reports/sightings, including "flying humanoid".


    All the best,

  • The very unfortunate thing in this case is that the witnesses didn't think a second to take their camera and
    to take pictures or video.

    I did some research and, aside leaving food, there is no known way to attract squirrels in large numbers temporarily.

  • Jean:

    We have offices in a wooded area, and a surfeit of squirrels, that I've tried to eradicate over the past few years.

    They do swarm, with and without food.

    So the "event" Jose provides is not outside the realm of reality as I see it.

  • ``It appears that if the annual nut crops in the Hoosier forests failed, gray squirrels went on the march driven by hunger forced to migrate no matter the odds. Perhaps a lesson we can take from the squirrel invasion is not to believe all the stories we here, but certainly make the effort to take the time to separate fact from fancy.`` http://fortwaynemonthly.fortwayne.com/?q=article/the-squirrel-invasion

    An interesting story I found when searching for squirrel invasions/swarms.
