Alien Pet Contest

Barking.

08 Jul 2013

The city of Roswell, New Mexico, celebrated the 66th anniversary of its alleged alien spacecraft crash over the weekend with, you guessed it, a UFO Pet Costume Competition.

Dog-loving conspiracy theorists celebrated their love of little green men with elaborate pet costumes during a four-day festival marking the infamous UFO "sighting."

On July 7, 1947, locals reported seeing an extra-terrestrial space craft crashing into the Nevada Desert. Military officials confirmed they had captured a flying disk, then hastily changed their story, saying the object was actually a weather balloon.

Roswell embraced its reputation as an alien hotspot and is now home to possibly the world's weirdest pet contest.
