Bizarre Cattle Mutilations Baffle Investigators
Bizarre Cattle Mutilations Baffle Investigators
After decades of attacks, no one is officially to blame

A disturbing chain of livestock mutilations has plagued farmers and ranchers throughout all 50 states for decades, but law enforcement has failed to name a perpetrator. 

Cows, horses, goats, and other livestock have been randomly found dead—the corpses mutilated and organs removed with surgical precision. With each of these attacks, no tracks of any kind surround the site, perplexing ranchers and law enforcement.

Many theories surround this mysterious and persistent wave of attacks. Suspects include predatory animals, satanic cultists, extraterrestrials, and even the U.S. government. To this day, no arrests have been made even though more than 10,000 attacks have been recorded throughout the country, according to KLAS-TV Las Vegas.

These cases stand out from regular predatory attacks on livestock. Their surgical nature is eerie and unexplainable. Colorado rancher Tom Miller recalled his first encounter with the mysterious mutilations: The eyes, ears, tongue, and reproductive organs had been removed from one of his cows with surgical precision. No blood was found onsite, which is typical among the mutilation attacks. Miller said that his cattle have been periodically attacked in this way since 1999, according to Science Channel’s “The Unexplained Files.”

Adding to the bewilderment are the fractured bones, including ribs, inside the carcasses of the mutilated animals, suggesting that the animals were taken, operated on, and then dropped from an elevated height.

Supporters of the extraterrestrial theory suggest that aliens take the animals aboard their craft and then discard the remains, according to the “Unexplained Files.” Ufologists—those who study UFOs—believe that the mutilation of these animals represents a need for bodily tissue in order to create alien-human hybrids. This claim is perhaps lacking in evidence, but in many cases of cattle mutilation, the reproductive organs were removed—embryos included. In the scientific community, cow embryos were used in human cloning attempts by the company Advanced Cell Technology in 1999, reported the BBC and NewScientist news.

A more terrestrial explanation comes from alien theory skeptic Chris O’Brien, who suggests that the mutilations are conducted by our own government in an effort to avoid disease outbreak, such as mad cow disease, also known as bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), which is believed to cause the human disease called variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (vCJD). According to O’Brien and “The Unexplained Files,” many of the tainted animals from the 1996 BSE outbreak in England were destroyed, turned into fertilizer, and transported around the world—including to American farmland.

Despite the persistent anomalies of these livestock attacks, skeptics hold that they are nothing more than predatory animal attacks.

    This is one of the freakiest and disturbing phenomenon around. There is no doubt it is true, it is well documented and an ongoing situation. I am very curious as to what the answer is, but no matter what it is, it has to be bizarre for ANY reason. The details of the mutilations are just mind boggling.

      This is one of those phenomena that I admit I don’t have a clue what’s going on and neither does anyone else for that matter. Humanity may have to swallow it’s pride and admit that there are some things we may never understand no matter how long and hard we try. However, this is no excuse to not keep trying. If you aim at an unreachable target you may shoot further than you ever believed you could’ve.

        Agree 100%. I hesitate to either accept or reject any explanation…nothing would be “too far out” to explain such far out events. Decades of this happening and no answers is in itself hard to believe….lesser crimes are cracked with a discarded cigarette butt and a tire tread, something of this magnitude seems like it shouldn’t be this hard, but it is.

    I know what the answer is. The government and another race are working together to create a NWO. These aliens we are working with have given us new technology in exchange for our DNA. They are trying to become human. Not all of them are bad but the ones who help the people in power are evil. There is good and bad in everything.

    Why would the US government go about it in such a clandestine way? It doesn’t make any sense. If they actually found a disease, then how would they explain how they found it in order to do something about it. I don’t believe the alien theory, but that doesn’t leave much else.

  • Gin1234

    Why aren’t they just using humans if it is aliens? No one would be able to figure that out, either, but it would give them much more actual tissue and DNA to use if they are trying to turn human.

    According to O’Brien and “The Unexplained Files,” many of the tainted animals from the 1996 BSE outbreak in England were destroyed, turned into fertilizer, and transported around the world—including to American farmland.

    the above quote explains what is happening, decades later the U.S. gov’t is testing whether animals across the heartland show any signs of BSE being transmitted from land that may
    be harboring a dormant strain of the virus in the ground. they could easily contract with local Veterinary Schools in the area to conduct the surgical removal of organs and blood.

    seriously, if this was the work of extraterrestrials I would imagine we would be finding as many human mutilations as animals. wouldn’t they be more inquisitive about the most dominant animal on the planet.
