Oregon state authorities are investigating another series of bizarre cattle mutilations that have occurred lately.
Officials recorded the latest case literally this month. The animal deaths took place in eastern and southern Oregon. Police said they will introduce additional patrols and urged local residents to be more vigilant.
Sgt Mitch Madden said police are currently investigating cases of killing animals in which different parts of their bodies were removed. This streak follows five mutilations in the last year.
In most cases, the animals had their eyes, udder, intestines, genitalia, ears, and even cheeks removed. The organs were cut from the cows even when they were alive, but at the same time, no footprints were ever found showing resistance or kicking on the part of the animals – or other footprints around it. Neither blood. Also, other livestock or scavengers in the area often do not approach the remains.
It is worth noting that the FBI has a complete record of a large number of such cases in the United States. The first of them occurred back in the 70s of the last century, and since then, beyond the various hypotheses in this regard, the culprits have not been found.
In 1974, a few months after the first series of alleged mutilations in the United States, several Nebraska farmers claimed to have witnessed UFOs on the nights their cattle were damaged.
The phenomenon has been repeated in various parts of the world, one of the most famous waves being that of Argentina in 2002.
