What's New - Animal Mutilations
Linda Moulton Howe began her career at Stanford. The Stanford linear accelerators, working with early computers and the bombardment images.

From there to a local Boston TV station to work in science and medicine, and then to Director of Special Projects at a local Denver TV Station. In the summer of 1979, Mark O'Kane, an audio man, said he had just come off of a shoot with 20/20. He took Linda to a location where animals, mostly cattle, had ears, eyes, tongue, jaws, genitals and rectum cored out with no blood and no tracks. If that wasn't strange enough, there was something else odd that was happening on location. They couldn't keep the battery packs operating when near the animals. Why?

Linda and the crew went from one location to another investigating this strange phenomenon. Sheriff Tex Graves from Logon County, who was about to retire, told her off camera that the animal mutilation perpetrators were “creatures from outer space”.

This began Linda's "trip down the rabbit hole".

"The subject of A Strange Harvest was my 9-months-long investigation of the animal mutilation mystery in Colorado and the surrounding region, North America and beyond to both hemispheres of this planet. Cattle, horses, goats, sheep, pigs, rabbits, dogs, cats and even wild game such as deer and marmots were found dead with bloodless excisions and no tracks around their bodies, not even their own tracks.

My documentary crew and I traveled to many mutilation sites and interviewed sheriffs and deputies in law enforcement. Retired former Logan County Sheriff Tex Graves showed us photographs of strange aerial lights he and others had seen over pastures where mutilated animals were found with the same bloodless pattern of excisions. But even though Sheriff Graves had told me off camera that he and others in law enforcement believed the animal mutilation perpetrators were "creatures from outer space," he would not talk about that on camera.

Then on the evening of October 18, 1979, in an interview with Lou Girodo, Chief Investigator for the District Attorney's Office in Trinidad, Colorado, he said those words on the record. Lou had been assigned to investigate the several cattle mutilations around Trinidad and with our TV camera rolling, I asked him, "Who? or what? do you think is killing and mutilating these animals?" Lou Girodo looked right at me and said, "Who is doing this now is very possibly creatures not of this planet." He and a deputy had even watched an orange glowing sphere split in two over a farm region where there had been cattle mutilations. One orange sphere went north and the other orange sphere went south. A few minutes later, Lou said with amazement in his voice, the two orange spheres merged back together "and went straight down into the ground!" - Linda Moulton Howe

Cattle Mutilation in Santa Fe, Argentina

Case File Information

Date of Event / Case File: 01/01/2014

Case File Details

The exact year of this case is unknown, as the original translation only had the day of the month. It is believed this was in 2014, but the month is unclear.

By Andrea Pérez Simondini

Thanks to our friend Marcelo Fasano we have learned of new cattle mutilation events in the locality of Reconquista, Santa Fe.

The story was covered by local station Radio Amanecer and is very interesting. It states that the animal’s owner found the animal in a state of nevers and trembling on Friday the 15th, and the found it dead with these injuries on Monday the 18th.

Two new cases occurred during this instance: one of them in Villa Adela, in the Villa Ocampo district, at the farm of Osvaldo Marega; another occurred at Km.20, jurisdiction of Tartagal, in a field owned by the Miranda family. In each of these, the are not only many similarities to be found, but also with other events that have occurred in different parts of this northern Santa Fe community in recent months.

Missouri rancher suspects something out of the ordinary is mutilating and killing cattle

The following was published on July 29, 2013, by KSHB. It is archived here for reference:

HENRY COUNTY, Mo. - A Missouri rancher is getting tired of making disturbing discoveries on her Henry County land. Lyn Mitchell said she is out of reasonable explanations for what's to blame for killing her livestock.

Mitchell said she's normally a private person, but the deaths of three of her cattle have her speaking out.

"It's just something I want some answers to," she said.

Mitchell found the first cow in December 2011.

"She had obviously been cut on the side of her jaw," Mitchell said. "Her tongue was gone, her ear was gone."

She initially assumed the animal had fallen victim to teenagers or was part of a sacrificial ritual, until earlier this month. Mitchell made the next discovery on July 9.

"I looked first to see her tongue was gone, then immediately noticed the udder had been completely removed," Mitchell said.

The reproductive organs were gone too, Mitchell said. A char mark outlining the cow's body - still visible today - made the death even more mysterious.

Finally on July 19, Mitchell found the third cow. She said its heart was exposed and its teats were cut off.

All three animals' tongues were also cut out.

Mitchell said the cuts all looked surgical with clean, precise incisions. And in all three deaths, Mitchell said there was no blood despite the animals' gaping wounds.

Since the cows graze in such an isolated place, nobody saw or heard a thing. Mitchell said the sheriff's department and a veterinarian have investigated, but can't come up with an answer.

"The more it happens, the more questions you get. And the more you learn, you find more and more things that make you ask more questions," Mitchell said.

With all other reasonable causes debunked, Mitchell said she is open to the possibility that extraterrestrial life could be responsible.

Similar cases of animal mutilation have been reported in Missouri in the past few years. The FBI nearly investigated in the 1970s. With the unsolved mysteries looming, aliens have become a common answer.

Mitchell is considering installing cameras to catch the person or thing in action the next time they visit her ranch. She just wants the killing to stop.

"Something happened to these cows and it's not something that you see every day, it's not in your normal, so something else is going on," Mitchell said.

Police: Mutilated Cow Found at Northland Farm

The following was published by FoxNews Channel 4, Kansas City, Missouri on January 6, 2012, and is archived here for reference:

BY MITCH WEBER, FoxNews Channel 4, Kansas City, Missouri

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Police are investigating after a Northland farmer reported that one of his cows had been found dead and mutilated, apparently by someone who a veterinarian says knew what they were doing.

According to Kansas City Missouri Police, officers responded to a call on Thursday morning to a farm near 120th and Brightwell in rural Platte County, just west of KCI. There, officers said that they found the cow, which had its sexual organs and udder removed.

The cow’s owner, Casey Hamilton, told police that the cow had been ill, and had been moved to another pasture away from the rest of his herd. According to the police report, the cow was alive and recovering when it was last checked on Wednesday night, but was found dead the following morning.

A veterinarian examined the cow, and determined that it’s vagina and udder had been removed. According to the police report, the vet told officers that it was a precise cut and whoever did it “knew what they were doing.” He also stated that the cow was alive when the parts were removed.

“I couldn’t believe it happened so close to home,” said rancher Gordon Phillip, a friend of Hamilton’s and one of three ranchers in the area. The ranchers lease the land from KCI – the cattle herds keep tall grass down, which in turn helps keep deer off the airport’s runway.

“”It’s amazing, like how the vet said, if he had done a massive masectomy like that on a cow there would be blood all over the field, but there was no blood,” said Phillip.

Police say that when the cow was discovered on Thursday morning, the gate was still locked and there were no footprints or tire tracks leading to the dead cow.

“It’s somewhat amazing because the lack of evidence,” said Phillip, who says that he discovered one of his own cows mutilated 30 years ago. When he asked his vet for an explanation, Phillip says that he just looked towards the sky.

“He was just amazed when I showed him this cow 30 years ago, he went around and around looking for where a space machine had landed to see if he could find any burn marks in the pasture,” said Phillip.

The cow’s exact cause of death has not been determined, but the vet told police that the cow did not die from the mutilation. The lack of evidence is leading to a conundrum for investigators and ranchers alike.

“(It’s) just amazing how whoever does this terrible thing to animals seems to know what they are doing,” said Phillip.
