"Sometime after 7:30 p.m. on Good Friday, 1992, Gloria saw what at first appeared to be a bright light over railway tracks in the Confederation area. The light moved, and she realized that she had been looking at the bottom of an inverted, shallow bowl-shaped object of dull, metallic colour, about 10 to 20 feet in diameter ... [original document has a sketch]. It hovered silently above a power pole, and then zipped away. The next day, Gloria noticed several helicopters in the same area..."

Report of a sasquatch sighting on the webpage, Saskatchewan Sasquatch Sightings. "I just caught the biggest northern pike of my life, when I turn around in the boat in total fear. I caught a glimps of the animal on the bank on the river disappearing into the forest. It was approx. 8 foot tall hair all over. I was approx 100 yards from the animal. It took me awhile to calm down and then went back to camp. I mention to the owner that I saw something strange in the forest and he tried to convience me that it was a bear walking upright with a cub through the forest. I did not say I saw bigfoot or a bear just something strange.".

Report by Ian Bickle, a Saskatchewan freelance writer in the Saskatoon Star Phoenix, did a number of articles about the paranormal.
Penny Suehsschlof battled heavy rain and a muddy road as she drove alone to her farm home near Marchwell, southwest of Yorkton on the Manitoba border, one night in early fall.

  Suddenly, a vigorous high-intensity white light surrounded the vehicle. "It was as if someone had flipped on a big switch," recalled Suehsschlof, "and I felt really nervous".

   The car's engine quit, the headlights went out, the radio went silent.

   The light was gone in a matter of seconds. The engine started. "I didn't touch the ignition," Suehsschlof said. The lights and radio worked.

   Frightened and bewildered, she continued through the mud and rain to her home just a few hundred yards away...

  Her husband believed her story. A few years earlier he had experienced the famous Tabor Light a bright light that, at intervals, has appeared over a cemetery not far from nearby Esterhazy..."

StarPhoenix " Circle in alfalfa field difficult to explain" at page A2 Local/Regional.

18 July 1992 Star-Phoenix Local A7. Now this report is in the area south of Edmonton, but I am including it here because I think that the if it was happening near Edmonton, it was also happening in Saskatchewan. Only our reports never hit the paper. The RCMP were brought in to investigate.

...

  Since September, seven heifers each worth about $600 have been killed, and six have had their sex organs removed. Often, their blood has been drained.

  The surgical neatness of the wounds and the tidy site around the cadavers has sparked speculation about how the killings occurred...

Bizarre circle in field continues to perplex
by Woodhouse

It is just strange

That is how Hermann Austenson, a University of Saskatchewan crop sciences professor, described the circle in an alfalfa field just south of Saskatoon.

Phyllis Collins found the three-metre wide circle of flattened alfalfa on Thursday.

"It is not like your typical cereal field circle. It's not as clear cut," said Austenson"
[The rest of the article is about the general nature of circles]

20 August 1992 on either "Canada A.M." or CBC television, they interviewed a man that videotaped clouds. Examining it frame by frame - UFOs would show up on frames. They were so fast that showing the video at normal speed nothing would show up


1992 August 26, Saskatoon Star Phoenix on the front page Could mystery lights be UFOs? (pdf).

"...They were heading south on Highway 219 and they had just passed the White Cap Reserve at about 9 p.m. when they saw about 10 lights in a diagonal line.

Then the lights went out. One by one they began reappearing, this time in a circle formation. They disappeared and reappeared again in an "abstract" formation...

What was "quite strange" about these lights was that they had little streams of smoke, similar to the smoke made by fireworks. Except these ones were going upwards...

The whole episode lasted about five to 10 minutes.

The lights were yellowish - white and were brighter than stars, and "way brighter than yard lights"...
