MACACHIN (Agencia)_It became known on Wednesday that several
cows had been found dead under mysterious circumstances in
fields of the Rivera and Macach=EDn regions, showing incisions and
removal of organs. One of the affected parties showed this
newspaper a videotape and explained that he had found a dead cow
whose organs had been removed through incisions, showing
"evident signs of cauterization."

One of the new cases in the hitherto unexplained wave of bovine
deaths through mutilation was recorded last weekend on the
property owned by the Diez family in Arano, a property some 20
km west of Rivera. On Wednseday, the landowner's son showed LA
ARENA a video and explained his experience. "My father found the
dead animal last Saturday and discussed it in the afternoon upon
his return. We immediately went back with a friend and saw that
it had several strange incisions whose edges showed signs of an
intense heat which cauterized the wound."

According to the young man and what appears on the videotape,
the cow presents a perfectly round mark around its ocular
cavity, from which the orb was competely missing. It also had
incisions on the upper and lower maxilla; the tongue had been
cut out "with signs of high temperature."

Another incision began in the abdominal area and progressed
toward the tail, where it was perfectly skinned back, revealing
the absence of mammary glands, reproductive organs, anus and

However, the most curious detail was that a veterinarian took an
interest in the case and was authorized to visit the site on
Monday. Oddly, he informed the Diez family that the animal's
left ear had been cleanly cut away with signs of heat
manipulation, despite the fact that the ear could be clearly
seen in the videotape.


Another strange case was recorded on the property of Macach=EDn-
area cattleman Pedro Miller, located some 15 km southeast of
Macach=EDn. The police paid a cursory visit to the visit
accompanied by a veterinarian.

The animal, a red heifer, was found dead in a strange position:
spread out on its four extremities. It also betrayed the
customary incisions in the mouth area and the ears.

Finally, a new case emerged last week on a field belonging to
the Kuperschmidt family, some 15 km south of Rivera, where the
strange events affected three steers. The reports were confirmed
by the local headquarters of the Prov. of Buenos Aires police,
although no official action was taken. Mystery of the Mutilated

Ten dead animals were found in a field of La Pampa near Rio
Colorado, missing their tongues, eyes and udders, and showing no
signs of having bled. There are no tracks whatsoever in sight.
Professionals have not offered an explanation. All manner of
hypotheses are being aired and even urban and rural legends have
