To Scott Corrales and the List

I have read with great interest your messages on UFO UpDates
regarding the mutilations in Argentina.

I am quite surprised to learn that SENASA's director cited a
French book in his rebutal of the extraordinary nature of the

I suspect that the translator's work is in error.

Michel Granger (not Grainger) did write write a book on cattle
mutilations in America, called 'The Great Slaughter' ('Le Grand
Carnage'), not 'The Rogue Surgeons'. It was published in 1986,
and was quite positive on the reality of mutilations as an
extraordinary phenomenon - although he believe the ET hypothesis.
It is a very well documented work of 383 pages.

On the other hand, a little book was been published in January
2002, called 'The Rogue Surgeons: Autopsy Of An American Myth'
('Les Chirurgiens Furtifs. Autopsie d'un mythe am=E9ricain'),
written by a newcomer to French ufology, Yann Mege.

Mege is totally skeptical, following the conclusions of the
Rommel report that all mutilations are due to predators. He has
added a typically French 'socio-psychological' analysis, seeing
the Vietnam War as a cause of anguish which explains the growth
of the "myth" of alien mutilations!

This small, short book (142 pages) is a pure debunking job, and
I am stunned that it is known by an Argentine official. Could it
be that he has been tipped-off by some foreign agency ?
