Initial data

Initial information from sources or from an eyewitness
Incident date: 
Уоррен, MB

Some young people were driving their truck through an isolated area, passing a swamp.

A classic dome-shaped UFO disk rose from the swamp. It rose slowly, but disappeared at high speed. On the surface of the swamp water below him, there seemed to be a yellow, foamy substance of a roughly circular pattern. 

They decided to go home, get their boots, and come back. Which they did in just fifteen minutes. 

The foam was gone, but they made their way inside anyway. A sealed plastic bag was found in the center of the area where they assumed the UFO was located. Inside, you could see what looked like a mummified hand (four fingers and a thumb).

For some reason, it reminded me of the legend of the Monkey's Paw as a talisman of evil or misfortune. They took the bag to the truck and decided to go home. The truck started, but then stopped with a terrible gasping sound and didn't move. 

Their radio started turning on and off. The Monkey's paw was immediately blamed for these difficulties and the bag was thrown away. After that, the truck started up without any problems, and they left.

Original news

Location. Warren, Manitoba, Canada
Date: August 1976
Time: evening
Some young males were driving in their truck in an isolated area, and were passing alongside a swamp. Out of the swamp ascended a classic domed disc UFO. It rose slowly, but disappeared at high speed. On the surface of the swamp water beneath it, there seemed to be yellow, foam like substance in a roughly circular pattern. They decided to go home, get their wader boots and come back. Which they did, taking only about fifteen minutes to do so. The foam was gone, but they waded in anyway. Near the center of where they guessed the UFO had been they found a sealed plastic bag. Inside you could see what looked like a mummified hand (four fingers and a thumb). For some reason this brought to mind the legend of the Monkey’s Paw sort of a talisman of evil or bad fortune. They took the bag back to their truck and decided to go home. The truck started but then, with terrible gasping noises stalled and would not go. Their radio began going on and off. They immediately accused the Monkey’s Paw of these difficulties, and threw the bag away. Upon which, the truck started up without problems, and they drove off.
