APRIL 1977, SNOHOMISH, WISCONSIN, USA, STEVEN UNZELMAN:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

An author of a Bigfoot book reportedly indicates that near Snohomish, Wisconsin, on April 1977, at 04:00 p.m., Steven Unzelman was clearing some land behind his property in an area surrounded by tall evergreen trees and brushes, when he noticed a man like figure standing close by.

The man seemed startled and suddenly the witness began hearing a loud buzzing sound and everything around him began to vibrate. The figure appeared to be yelling at him.

A second man wearing a blue coverall now descended from the sky inside what appeared to be a half-egg shaped contraption with rotating blades on top. It was creating a strong turbulence all around the area.

Both men descended to the ground using this peculiar machine. The two half egg shaped objects then suddenly shot up into the sky and disappeared.

Both men were described as bald headed with flat faces. Both had dark brown skin and wore metallic blue uniforms and what appeared to be oxygen tanks on their backs. Both were about 5-feet tall and their heads were slightly larger than normal.

Suddenly the witness heard a loud motor sound and saw a disc shaped object descend overhead making the trees whip back and forth. After emitting more sounds the object shot straight up making a siren-like sound. The object was silvery and appeared to have been spinning.

The two humanoids then began walking away looking over their shoulders at the witness. He then heard a noise and noticed a huge hairy Bigfoot type creature hiding behind a nearby stump. The two humanoids then seemed to motion at the Bigfoot to come with them. It seemed to obey and left with them. The witness experienced a memory loss after the incident.

There seems to be also something about a strong migraine, and Peter Gutilla, the author of the book, said he interviewed the witness on the sighting's location in 1980.

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that near Snohomish, Wisconsin, on April 1977, at 04:00 p.m., Steven Unzelman was clearing some land behind his property in an area surrounded by tall evergreen trees and brush when he noticed a man like figure standing close by. The man seemed startled and suddenly the witness began hearing a loud buzzing sound and everything around him began to vibrate. The figure appeared to be yelling at him. A second man wearing a blue coverall now descended from the sky inside what appeared to be a half-egg shaped contraption with rotating blades on top. It was creating a strong turbulence all around the area. Both men descended to the ground using this peculiar machine. The two half egg shaped objects then suddenly shot up into the sky and disappeared. Both men were described as bald headed with flat faces. Both had dark brown skin and wore metallic blue uniforms and what appeared to be oxygen tanks on their backs. Both were about 5-feet tall and their heads were slightly larger than normal. Suddenly the witness heard a loud motor sound and saw a disc shaped object descend overhead making the trees whip back and forth. After emitting more sounds the object shot straight up making a siren-like sound. The object was silvery and appeared to have been spinning. The two humanoids then began walking away looking over their shoulders at the witness. He then heard a noise and noticed a huge hairy Bigfoot type creature hiding behind a nearby stump. The two humanoids then seemed to motion at the Bigfoot to come with them. It seemed to obey and left with them. The witness experienced a memory loss after the incident.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is Peter Guttilla, The Bigfoot File.

[Ref. ha1:] "HIGH DESERT BIGFOOT RESEARCH PROJECT" WEBSITE:

The website provides the summary by Albert Rosales, indicating that the source is Peter Guttila.

Points to consider:

From a preview of the book The Bigfoot File by Peter Guttilla, the case appears to be at page 139, there was something about a serious migraine, and Gutilla interviewed Steven Unzelman in 1980 and went to the site of his experience.

As I do not have the book yet, I see no point in evaluating the case for now, this is why I class it as "Insufficient Information", meaning of course insufficient information to me temporarily.

I note all the same that the story is very atypical, and comprises some apparent inconsistencies, with an egg-shaped UFO changing to two half egg-shaped UFOs without explanation, and entities just walking away whereas three flying machines intervene in the story.
