1932, Céret, Pyrénées-Orientales, France, Martin Cabrills:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

Luis Anglada Font, author defending theories of "ancient astronauts" kind, reported in his 1979 book "La Realidad de los Ovni a traves de los Siglos" ("The reality of UFOs through the centuries") that in Céret, near Perpignan, France, in 1932, one afternoon, a Spanish wood-cutter, Martin Cabrills, who lived in a shack with several other men, checked his animal traps with his dog.

A man that Cabrills had never seen before and will not see anymore, obviously a hunter, who carried a rifle on his shoulder and several birds that he had shot down, "suddenly" approached him, 10 minutes before sunset. They talked about the best places for hunting and other trivial things, then the man said goodbye and Cabrills went back to his shack.

But he "suddenly" heard terrifying cries. He found that his dog had erect ears and showed its teeth, and then the dog began to howl. Cabrills did not know what to do, when he "suddenly" heard a terrifying scream. He immediately ran to the place where the scream was coming from, his dog remaining in place with his tail between its legs, obviously terrified.

Cabrills arrived "20 meters from where he heard the screams" and heard the man with whom he had previously chatted screaming in Catalan "Deuxeume-estar!" ("Leave me alone"), his voice seeming to come from somewhere above and behind trees.

Cabrills looked there but saw nothing, while he still heard the mans' voice seeming to come from somewhere in the air. Terrified, unable to move, Cabrills crossed himself several times. He again heard the man's terrified cries three times, asking for help, but his voice seemed to be coming from a point further and further away and getting weaker and weaker. Then everything was silent.

The next day, Cabrills went to check the place without his dog, as the latter was trembling under the bed, and found footprints that seemed to suddenly disappear mid-way.

Prior to this incident, Martin had seen strange "balls of fire" moving over trees in the same area.

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Ceret, near Perpignan, France, in 1932, in the afternoon, "A Spanish wood-cutter, Martin Cabrills who was living in a cabin with several other men was one day checking his animal traps with his dog when he was suddenly approached by a man, obviously a hunter, carrying a rifle on his shoulder. The man also carried several birds he had shot. Martin reports that he had never seen him before or after. He spoke to the stranger for about 10 minutes until the sun began to set. They spoke about the best locales for hunting and other mundane things. Soon the man bade goodbye and Martin headed back to his cabin when suddenly he heard some terrifying screams, apparently coming from the man. Martin immediately turned around and noticed that his dog had its ears perked up and was baring its teeth, the dog then began to howl in a panic. Martin was at first hesitant and was not quite sure what to do, when he suddenly heard the terrifying scream again. He immediately ran towards the location where the scream originated from, his dog stayed behind him with its tail between its legs, obviously terrified for some unknown reason. Finally he arrived to within 20 meters from where he heard the screams and could hear the man screaming in the Catalan language ‘Deuxeume-estar!' (Leave me alone) but his voice seemed to originate from somewhere above and behind some trees. Martin looked up and could not see anything, but he could still hear the man’s voice that seem to originate from somewhere in the air. Martin stood there terrified unable to move and crossed himself repeatedly. His dog was also terrified. Three more times he heard the man’s terrified screams asking for help, but his voice seemed to originate from a point further and further away and was becoming weaker. Suddenly everything was quite. The next day he went to check the area (minus his dog that remained trembling under the bed) and found some footprints that seemed to suddenly vanish in mid-stride, apparently belonging to the unfortunate stranger. Before this incident Martin had seen strange 'fiery balls of fire' traveling above the trees in the same area."

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is "Luis Anglada Font, 'La Realidad de los Ovni a traves de los Siglos'".

He comments: "A permanent abduction? Translated by Albert S. Rosales".

Points to consider:

A case without any entity seen, with very vague "UFOs", from an author more keen on "mystery mongering" than rigorous science...
