An unidentified creature has been photographed in San Jose California sparking mass speculation of an alien encounter.
Gianna Peponis of San Jose California posted several pictures of a bizarre looking corpse that she found in her back yard. After posting the pics to Facebook the story quickly went viral gaining traction after one of her friends supposedly also posted the pictures on Reddit.
Peponis wrote on her Facebook wall: ‘I wasn’t gunna post this but I can’t stop trying to figure out wtf this thing is.. I heard something scream at like 11:30 last night and went on my side yard and found this thing. It was dead when I found it..’ The post has since been deleted by Facebook, causing many to believe it’s a cover up.
The grizzly discovery comes just a day after many reported seeing strange lights over Southern California. The Orange County Sheriff’s Department received dozens of calls from people claiming to have seen an unidentified flying object in the night sky.
People took to social media claiming government conspiracies – strange lights, alien corpses, posts being deleted.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Department posted on Twitter that the ‘strange lights’ seen in the sky were a scheduled trident missile launch from a nearby naval base.
#OCSDPIO: Light seen in OC sky was confirmed through JWA tower to be a Naval test fire off the coast. No further details.

Popular debunking website snopes.com entered the fray claiming that the ‘alien pictures’ were nothing more than a deformed, still-born deer fetus. They noted that the pictures were originally posted to Facebook by someone in Pleasant Hope, Missouri on November 5, 2015 some four days prior to Peponis’ claim.
What do you think, do the debunked claims make sense? Is it just a deer fetus? Were the lights a controlled missile test launch? Or is it all an elaborate conspiracy? Let us know on Twitter and Facebook.
