(ORDO NEWS) — Strange little humanoid killed Valentina Flores’ sheep. It happened in Potosi (Bolivia) in 1967.
In what may be considered one of the most terrifying cases in the history of Ufology, an unsuspecting Bolivian shepherdess was tending her flocks of sheep and llama when a terrifyingly brutal encounter with a creature of unknown origin occurred that left her literally scarred for life.
In the desert mountainous regions of the southwestern highlands of Bolivia, not far from the once prosperous silver-mining city of Potosi, lies the province of Opoko.
In 1967, 24-year-old Valentina Flores and her husband Gumersindo were trying to feed themselves on a small piece of land near Opoko. These illiterate Quechua Indians led a solitary life tending their land, livestock, and their young daughter, Theodosia.
Neither Valentina nor Gumersindo knew or cared about the stories of UFOs and their extraterrestrial inhabitants that made headlines around the world… and absolutely nothing could have prepared Valentina for the horror she and her child would face on the evening immediately after Easter. of that year.
Late in the evening that day, Valentine led her herd of sixty-four sheep to pasture adjacent to the hilly countryside where there was an old stone paddock. It was then that she noticed – to her horror – that the herd of llamas had gone somewhere.
Famous Spanish writer and UFO researcher J.J. Benítez traveled to Bolivia in 2001 and managed to track down Valentina and her husband.
He interviewed a 59-year-old witness who was amazed that a foreigner could even hear about the terrible meeting that happened to her 34 years ago, and even more so worry about her. Still experiencing this event, Valentina described the scene to him:
“THAT DAY I WAS ALONE. MY HUSBAND HAS BEEN HIRED AND, LIKE ALL OTHER MEN, HE WAS IN THE PAMPAS, WORKING… IT WAS ABOUT 4 P.M. I GOT THE SHEEP AND LAMBS IN ONE PLACE AND WENT TO LOOK FOR THE ANIMALS.”
After tying Theodosia tightly to her back with a traditional blanket called a manta, Valentina began chasing her lamas and eventually tracked them to a meadow about forty-five minutes’ walk from the field where she had left her sheep. The shepherdess gathered her animals and began to drive them back to the pasture.
The sun had already begun to slowly sink towards the horizon when Valentina returned with the llamas on a leash. This time she was shocked to find that her sheep were nowhere to be found.
Embarrassed and a little annoyed, Valentina left the lamas, and herself, together with the dozing Theodosia, followed the footsteps of the sheep into the hills. Approaching the stone enclosure, Valentine hesitated, noticing that there was something unusual about this eerily silent structure.
Her attention was drawn to the fact that over the stone pen, like a tent, stretched a web-like substance. The material was like a plastic mesh that came out of a pillar-like structure in the center of the corral and seemed to attach itself to the stone walls.
Determined to find out what was happening to her cattle, the young mother pushed her fears aside and crept closer to the building. Valentina could barely suppress a sigh of horror as she saw the ground beneath the cobwebs littered with the torn carcasses of her family’s beloved sheep.
At that moment, movement flickered into Valentina’s field of vision and she saw the child-like being responsible for dismembering 63 sheep trying to do the same to the last resisting lamb using an oblong tubular device with a razor-sharp hook at one end, which seemed to be attached to it with a chain.
Next to this creature was an open plastic bag full of sheep entrails and organs. Understandably upset, Valentia described the incredible sight before her:
“THE LITTLE MAN WAS IN THE PAD… HE LIKE A CHILD… ON KNEES AND WITH A SHEEP BETWEEN THE LEGS. THE PAD WAS COVERED WITH SOMETHING LIKE A NET. I PANIC. THIS MAN KILLED ALL MY ANIMALS.”
Valentina describes this mini-assassin as young and “chubby”. He was about 1 meter tall and was wearing:
“… STRANGE CLOTHING, LIKE A DIVER… ONE ONE ONE SUIT FROM THE NECK TO THE FEET. THE BOOTS WAS BROWN.”
The shepherdess went on to describe the red, criss-cross straps that crossed the humanoid’s chest in an X-shape and supported a large, mechanical-like backpack on its back. The creature also had two satchels attached to its sides, similar to bags.
Valentina drew attention to the strange helmet of the creature, which crowned the propeller. Valentina was able to get a good look at his facial features, which she described as follows:
“HE HAD VERY WHITE SKIN, BLONDE HAIR, BLUE EYES AND A RED LOUD MUSTache.”
Enraged by the massacre carried out by this undersized butcher, Valentina did what anyone in her place could do. She began swearing and pelting this strange sheep-stealer with stones.
At that moment, the dwarf abruptly stood up, let go of the last sheep, and turned to face his earthly offender with an expression of shock and fear.
He jumped to a strange device that Valentina, with her limited technical knowledge, later likened to a radio, and pressed a wheel-shaped lever at its top, whereupon the elastic web that covered the paddock was quickly drawn into the mechanism.
As soon as the tent was gone, Valentina noticed another almost identical creature standing on the opposite side of the paddock. Noticing her, the second creature ran up a nearby hill and sat down on a chair-like contraption.
Vanes popped out of a pair of cylindrical contraptions at the back of the chair, whirling, and the creature took off rapidly on this apparatus, leaving its comrade-in-arms to fend for themselves.
Then Valentina decided that it was time to get down to business. She drew an iron-tipped wooden club from her bag and entered the blood-soaked pen like a gladiator into an arena.
She looked down at the massacre that represented the bulk of her family’s livelihood and angrily approached the being responsible for the destruction.
Clearly alarmed, the little man tried to speak to the furious shepherdess in a language she could not understand. She recalled her state of mind at that terrible moment:
“HE TALKED TO ME BUT I DID NOT UNDERSTAND HIM. IT WAS NOT QUECHUA OR SPANISH. HE WAS AS DISAPPOINTED AS I AM. OH MY GOD! MY ANIMALS!
Valentina rushed at the entity with her club, inflicting a terrible blow on him:
“I HIT HIM WITH ALL THE POWER … I HIT HIM IN THE FACE AND HE STARTED TO BLEED. THE GUY STILL SCREAMED BUT I DID NOT UNDERSTAND HIM.”
At that moment, the Sheep Killer decided to defend himself by picking up the same cylindrical surgical instrument with a hook, with which he gutted the sheep.
He threw this weapon at Valentina, cutting open her chest and arms. Later, the mother confessed with an almost undisguised sense of relief that only the large manta knot that supported Feodosia prevented the blade from plunging into her chest and delivering a killing blow.
It is worth noting that while most accounts of this battle state that the disembodiment hook was used as a boomerang-like weapon, Valentine insisted that it was the chain to which it was attached that automatically retracted the razor-sharp tool back into the creature’s hand after each throw.
Without stopping, Valentina delivered another blow, hitting the entity’s right forearm. The creature screamed in pain, and blood ran down its immobile wrist.
This well-placed blow proved too much for the sheep-killer, and he used his still-functioning left hand to grab the walkie-talkie-like device and rushed towards the hillock. There he flew off just like his comrade… and was never seen again.
Shortly thereafter, a Bolivian army detachment was sent to the scene and collected all sixty-three carcasses, as well as samples of the creature’s blood spilled by Valentina’s club in the pen.
Sheep were found to be missing numerous internal and external organs, including eyes, ears, mouth parts, and belly fat. Authorities also found that most (if not all) of the blood that should have been inside the animals was missing.
The Flores family was forced to leave the region, emigrating first to Oruro and then to the south.
Other ranchers in the area, when questioned by the Bolivian government, claimed to have witnessed other strange events. Some testified that they saw strange people jumping out of sheep pens and leaving bloodless carcasses behind.
Valentina herself claimed that a few days before her meeting, an invisible person threw a cup of blood in her face … for what purpose, remains unknown until now.
When Benitez interviewed Valentina in 2001, she still didn’t know what a UFO was, much less an extraterrestrial being. When they tried to explain this to her, she rejected their attempts. It wasn’t something that worried her in the slightest.
But what bothered Valentina – and continued to haunt her dreams – was a vicious, small, red-haired, mustachioed man who took off into the sky with a bag full of organs, leaving her in a bloody mess and her family in a state of complete financial ruin.
