BUENOS AIRES, Argentina, June 24 (UPI) -- Looks like Argentina
has a job for Mulder and Scully.

Theories ranging from UFO's to a mythical beast that's half
kangaroo, half bat, are being tossed around bbArgentina

Argentine authorities have dispatched a special investigative
unit to the central provinces of La Pampa and Buenos Aires to
investigate the bizarre killings that left the 200 head of
cattle, one horse and handful of sheep slain with surgical

Similar occurrences have also been reported in the United
