|Squeaking Alien Eaten: UFOs and High
Did It Taste Like Chicken?
Strangeness in Rostov, Russia by Regan Lee

The other night Keith Olbermann aired a bit on a green fishy creature of unknown origin, eaten by (apparently) starving, or at east way hungry, townspeople. I wasn’t paying much attention to Keith ;(though I love him, as Stephanie Miller says, my future husband -- if I weren’t already married) working away on my laptop. But the combined images of mysterious green entity that squeaked, eaten by hungry citizens, in foreign lands, was too much for me to ignore, and I had to find out more. So I searched and found this article: Russian Fisherman Catch Squeaking Alien and Eat It. I couldn't resist a title like that.
According to the account in Pravda, fisherman in Rostov, Russia, caught a strange “shark-looking” creature. Images of the weird creature were taken with a cell phone. Then they ate it. The logic being, in part anyway, that they weren’t “scared” of the creature, so saw no reason not to eat it. It was quite delectable, too, according to one of the fisherman.
What was the creature? No one knows. Possibly a sturgeon, according to
Alexander Lipkovich, a spokesperson for the local zoo. And there’s the chairman of the Anomalous Phenomena Service, (they have an Anomalous Phenomena Service!) Andrei Gorodovoi, who is quoted as saying the creature is “an anomalous being.” But, it is important to know, "very probably not extraterrestrial." And yet:
What kind of “other forms of life?” Just what is Mr. Gorodovoi, chairman of the helpful Anomalous Phenomena Service, getting at?
“There are many legends about mermaids living in the Sea of Azov. Nevertheless, specialists of the Service for Anomalous Phenomena have never confirmed those fairytales. On the other hand, we do not deny the possibility of other forms of life in the Sea of Azov,” the ufologist sad.”
However, I know I’ve seen a picture of this creature before, only I remember it being brown. A Google search brought up many images that look just like the green being pulled from the sea by the Russian fishermen. And by the way, how seriously can anyone take Pravda? It’s possible the creature eaten by the hungry Russian fishermen was a skate. It is difficult to see how fishermen wouldn’t know a skate when they saw one. Maybe their blood sugar levels were too low; after all, they were pretty hungry.
In typical Trickster fashion, where odd coincidences and relationships exist in the land of anomalies and UFOs, we find that Rostov, and the surrounding areas, have seen its share of UFOs and strange creatures.
Rostov, Russia has its share of UFO sightings and related events, going back decades. (Rostov is in the North Caucasus region, and borders the Vorenezh region, also Ukraine.) Any internet search will turn up lots of interesting cases. Undoubtedly many of the UFOs seen were, and are, military objects from within Russia as well as outside the country. But overall, there are a high number of UFO cases that occurred in the Rostov region. A random and short sampling:
Liudmila Goryacheva filmed a UFO in Rostov; the sighting was picked up by the Rostov and Moscow news agencies. The sightings continued for a month.(Flier’s Files)
