Local Residents Mistake 'Bird Hunters' For UFOs?

Petromax Light
UFO claim unsubstantiated

Daily Star

      PAG-ASA said there is nothing to substantiate claims about the presence of Unidentified Flying Objects in Barangay Vista Alegre, Bacolod City, recently.

Several residents of the Abada-Escay relocation site in Barangay Vista Alegre, Bacolod City, claimed they saw unidentified flying objects in the early hours of Aug.6 but the barangay captain of the area said what they saw in the distance were bird hunters.

The residents claimed they saw lights flying above the ground circling the fields before they disappeared.

But Vista Alegre Barangay Captain Eduardo Galona said, apparently, what the residents saw were the lights strapped on to the heads of bird catchers. Many of the residents at the relocation site are from the urban areas of the city and perhaps do not know about the practices of bird catchers.

Bird catchers usually go in groups of four with bright petromax lights attached to their heads to draw the birds they catch with nets, he said.
