Sixty miles straight east of Bismark, North Dakota, is a small farm community called Tappen. Since late 2005, the Myra and Torrey Briese family have had a cow die that coyotes would not touch; their 16-year-old son, Evan, encountered a triangle-shaped craft emitting blue lights at a water pond; and Torrey Briese and the family saw other blue lights making grid patterns in the sky above their farm. Then around 1:20 a.m. on September 11, 2006, Evan encountered non-human creatures with claw-blade hands in the pig corral dragging off a sow. He shot an entity that was about 7-feet-tall. Then something grabbed him from behind and he went unconscious. When he woke up, his Adidas T-shirt had five slashes in it and the sow and non-humans were gone.
