10-31-2005               MISSING WATER


NOTE: To date, I have no cases in my files where a UFO has been seen drawing water from a water tower, water tank or swimming pool. It would be speculative to suggest that a UFO drew water from these storage areas when no UFO was seen in the vicinity, and even when a UFO was seen, it would not necessarily imply that it was responsible for the loss of the water. However, given the rapid emptying of these large storage facilities, it is still worth recording these cases for possible future file use. (CF)




"In the early morning hours of (Monday) October 31, 2005," approximately "70,000 liters of water were found to be missing from a tank habitually employed to provide livestock with water." The bizarre incident took place on a ranch located 15 kilometers (9 miles) south of Parera in central Argentina's La Pampa province, just off Provincial Route 9.


According to ufologist Scott Corrales, "One of the most startling aspects of the 2002 cattle mutilation wave in Argentina was the disappearance of tremendous amounts of water from large cisterns known as 'tanques australianos' (literally, 'Australian tanks'-S.C.) in Argentina's cattle ranching communities. Entire swimming pools were drained empty in Santa Rosa, Argentina at the same time."


"Miguel Garrone, who leases the La Cabana ranch, says the tank was filled to the maximum on Saturday evening," October 29, 2005, "and was found completely empty in the early morning hours of Monday," October 31, 2005.


"No signs of breakage or filtration were found, not signs of moisture in the perimeter that could provide an answer to such a strange phenomenon."


"The livestock rancher indicated his astonishment, stressing that this is not the first time that such an event has occurred in the area."


"It is worth noting that on July 2, 2006, on a ranch belonging to Adolfo Ziegenfhus, some 4 kilometers (1.3 miles) from Quetrequen and 12 kilometers (7 miles) from Parera, another 70,000 liters of water vanished in a similar fashion—mysteriously and at night—without any trace ever being detected, not the existence of a leak or filtration that would justify the missing water ever being found."
