According to local legend, Skinwalker Ranch, also known as Sherman Ranch, is a property located on approximately 480 acres southeast of Ballard, Utah that is allegedly the site of paranormal and UFO related activities. Claims about the ranch first appeared in the alternative weekly Las Vegas Mercury as a series of articles by journalist George Knapp. Knapp and co-author Colm Kelleher later authored a book [1] in which they describe the ranch being acquired by the National Institute for Discovery Science (NIDSci) to study anecdotal sightings of UFO's, bigfoot-like creatures, crop circles, glowing orbs, and poltergeist activity reported by its former owners. [2] In 1996, skeptic James Randi awarded NIDSci founder Robert Bigelow a Pigasus Award for funding purchase of the property for what he termed a "useless study" of "a 'haunted ranch' in Utah".[3]
