So as i mentioned at the top you're going to be talking about the curse of hobbs reservoir in layton utah In also also gonna have a demon dog encounter personal story later on but first before we get into your weird story. let's do a couple of. We're facts that. I found about utah. Shall we absolutely all right so in march nineteen sixty eight. Six thousand sheep died mysteriously in skull valley. The us army conducted open air tests of the nerve agent vx days before for years. The army denied that its tests had anything to do with the death of the sheep though. Investigative reports concluded otherwise church. And that's my peoples that government see. That's like that's like spreading that easy for gas in the close encounters movie and they gassed all of them. Livestock and shipment. I guess exactly ex- gas kills people's. Oh yeah we'll two men from barrel were charged with practicing medicine without a license after drilling a hole in a woman's head in january two thousand sound like egan. The men were accompanied by producers of the television. Show twenty twenty. Which i don't know why the hell they would go along with this but who are doing research for a story about transformation. The practice involves drilling one or two holes in the person's head in order to increase blood flow yeah out and supposedly decrease symptoms of depression. Well lobotomy would usually do that. The power drill to the frontal lobe is not exactly something i would recommend. No that's a it's one of those. You definitely don't try at home. No now now. In one thousand nine hundred seventy one utah. Now looking this apparently correct way to call utah resident is utah him but you are locals. Do not call themselves calm utahns. Ut a h. in our called a mutiny yes. he's colorado boy. I used to call mutations whole thing. You made up. Apparently because i've never seen that in the information is find. Hey unique really a utah. Hijack the plane collected fifty thousand dollars in ransom then escaped by jumping out of the plane with a parachute. The man richard mccoy was later caught and has long been suspected of being the infamous d b cooper who hijacked the plane four months earlier and bailed out with a parachute after collecting. Two hundred. Thousand dollars in ransom. Money mccoy was convicted of the second hijacking but escaped prison and was shot to death in a standoff with police will never know if.
