'Janet and Colin Bord, bestselling investigators of the paranormal, now turn their attention to an unsolved mystery which has long puzzled a large number of people: the sighting of scientifically inexplicable animals, and animals seen where they should not be. The subject is one over which scientists remain bitterly divided. The Bords' objective investigation is based on a worldwide selection of reported sightings, often by high-credibility witnesses such as policemen, doctors and vets.
As in all the Bords' books, illustrations form an important complement to the text; rare photographs of animals themselves, of footprints and habitats; artists' impressions and maps. Sources - newspaper reports, articles from journals devoted to the subject, letters to the authors from investigators in various countries - are methodically listed. The Bords finally consider all the clues, and offer their own theories towards an explanation of the Alien Animal phenomenon.'
