Several waves of cattle mutilation were reported in the end of the 20th century. A mysterious “predator” opened animal carcasses cutting out their internal organs. The predator was unstoppable and dead cattle were found even in zoos.
The most mutilations occurred in 1975 – 1976, the worst of them found in the US. There were thousands of victims. In Colorado alone three cows on average were mutilated on a daily basis. Governor Richard Lamm then stated that the mutilations were "one of the greatest outrages in the history of western cattle industry." Once, buffaloes were mutilated in Cheyenne Mountain that at the time hosted a US Air Force Defense Station. The predators were not stopped by thousands of soldiers patrolling the area. Bloodless animal carcasses remained the challenge that the Americans could not stand up to.
In 2009, cattle mutilators came back. On March 8, a dead cow was found near the Purgatoire River by Mike Duran, a cattle rancher.
"She's an older cow so I thought she may have died. … I spotted her near the (Purgatoire) river bottom and went and looked at her. She was on her side and it looked a little odd. When I took a closer look I saw that her udders had been removed," Duran said. It appeared as if the utters were cut off with a laser. There was no blood on or around the carcass and the incisions were perfectly round.
Two weeks later, Jim Garren, a rancher from Walsenburg, Colorado, also found a dead cow with its udders cut off.
"We searched and searched and we could not find blood on the ground or on the cow. I just can't understand how anyone could surgically remove a part from an animal and not spill some blood," he said.
Absence of blood is one of the characteristics of an invisible forces’ attack. After opening carcasses, veterinarians find out that there is not a single drop of blood in them. It is very difficult to bleed out an animal because when arteries are cut open, veins close and hold the blood back. The blood can be removed by pumping salt solution through arteries, but it is difficult to do in a field.
Rancher Tom Miller found one of his calves dead near a feed tub where cows congregate to eat twice daily.
"It's the strangest thing I've ever seen. I cut the hide and the legs just fell off. All the bones were broken," Miller said.
This happens when a mutilated animal is thrown down from above. There were a number of cases when ranchers found carcasses in the trees, hanging off power lines, or other places where a cow cannot get on its own. Traces of animals in the snow or mud would suddenly disappear as if the animals were lifted in the air. Coyotes and vultures would not touch the carcasses.
Miller said about 10 years ago he found another one of his cows mutilated. That cow had its ears, tongue, eyes and reproductive organs removed.
"I really don't know what it is. I think maybe it was a UFO. According to the circumstances, that is what it seems like," Miller said.
On March 17, the night Miller lost his calf, a dark triangular craft was reported flying over Colorado Springs. UFO investigators think it is not just a coincidence.
Most mutilation cases occurred in Argentina last summer near the city of Puelches, in Southwestern La Pampa. Farmers reported seeing UFOs flying around the farms and then finding mutilated cattle.
On June 30, another mutilated animal was found on the farm. It was a cow with incisions on one of its jaws, and was also missing one ear and inner ear, an eye, and had had all of its anal structure removed.
The cow’s owner said he was in the backyard accompanied by his son when the night "was suddenly turned to day" as a very large, bright object hovered over one of the cattle pens.
Terrified, both farmers entered the house and watched the UFO through a window. None of the farm animals were injured on that occasion, but cattle mutilations began soon.
Alejandro Napuri, a veterinarian, commented on a notorious case that occurred in a Buenos Aires province: "… there wasn't a single drop of blood at the site. Its tongue had been ripped out and the bone was exposed. This isn't an easy thing to achieve. The incisions observed have nothing to do with any mouse or predator," the vet explained.
In June, several more mutilated animals were found near Puelches . A local rancher said that she saw strange lights flying around several nights in a row. A rancher from Embajador Martini, Province of La Pampa, observed panic in his herd when a UFO object “shaped like two soup-bowls joined at their edges” flew over the animals.
Thirty years ago the link between UFOs and cattle mutilation became more obvious. Imprints of flying saucers, circles of burnt grass and increased radiation were found next to mutilated carcasses. Some lucky ones managed to see the objects themselves at the place of crime.
The most significant events happened at that time in Alaska. Five tourists staged a camp near the Yukon river. One of them woke up early in the morning and went down to the river to wash his face. While walking, he saw about 20 hanging “saucers” of orange color. He rushed to tell his friends, but by the time they were up the UFOs were gone.
