Wild Boar Is Added To The List Of Cows, Horses, Sheep And A

**Wild animals are also experiencing strange mutilations**

The case is suggestive, because wild boar are highly distrustful
and detect--through their sharp olfactory system--the presence
of strangers. On this occasion, an eight month old boar was
mutilated. This is the second instance of a wild animal being
mutilated since the appearance of a mutilated guanaco in Chubut.

While the mutilation count is now reaching 170 and the cases
recorded extend to nine Argentinean provinces, a new ingredient
has been added to the phenomenon: the discovery  in Rio Colorado
of a wild boar carcass showing strange incisions. This is the
6th species hit by the phenomenon, since the mutilated remains
of cows, horses, sheep, pigs and even a guanaco (in the province
of Chubut) have been found.

Cattleman Nestor Soule, owner of a rural property some 55 km
from Rio Colorado, in the Department of Pichimahuida, found the
boar speciment last Sunday near a gully. The animal, he
explained, had geometrically perfect incisions and was missing
the anus, tongue and jaw. To the surprise of the rancher and the
farmhand escorting him, the animal was still soft in spite of
the -14 C temperature marked by the thermometer.

"It's impossible that an animal could remain in this condition
after dead and after the cold, but I was surprised not to find
any tracks nearby," said Soule, who is aware of the "map"
presented by the animals and the varying forms and conditions of
the pasture surface. The rancher chose not to file a police
report, but did put the boar carcass in his pickup truck to show
his neighbor. He later left it in the wilderness.

"Due to its traits, a boar is an animal that is able to smell
any living creature a quite a distance, even thought [the boar]
may be young....this is why it flees at the slightest sign of
any peril," Soule explained. The rancher thus made clear why
this case is so fascinating and different to the ones involving
breeding animals. "I'm not a researcher or anything similar, and
that's why I don't know what to say, but this is strange and I
never saw anything like it before."

**In La Pampa**

The carcass of an Aberdeen Angus bovine missing parts of its
body were found last weekend in a field located 2 km from the
town of Embajador Martini, province of La Pampa.

The professionals who analyzed the case verified that it was
missing part of its tongue and mammary glands, and that its left
maxillary had been sectioned off. A mysterious situation also
occured to the north of the Pampan town of  Rancul at the "Los
Caldenes" ranch, where a cow had died of natural causes in the
afternoon only to be found with incisions on its jaw and missing
its tongue the next day. The province of Entre Rios has also the
epicenter of these events: in a field located 2 km from Rt.11, a
rancher found a 170 kg heifer and a 500 kg. milk cow some 800
meters from each other, both presenting the notorious incision

**In Carhue**

Cases involving strange animal deaths are still a subject for
discussion in this city given the fact that mutilations continue
to appear day after day for unknown reasons. The discoveries
made by veterinarian Fernando Lopez are complemented by those of
his colleague, Horacio Volpe. Last week, the professional was
summoned by the owner of a rural property located 25km from
Carhue--no personal information mentioned for privacy reasons--
where an 8-9 month calf showing the trademark incisions recorded
in the area had been found.

The professional noted that his attention was drawn by the
perfect incisions, the flacidness of the animal --"which seemed
recently dead," he noted -- and the absence of blood.

While Volpe preferred not to hazard a theory, he pointed out
that an employee of the property told him that his brother, who
was cultivating during the night, "saw some intense red lights,
as though from a laser, moving very quickly across the

Veterinarian Omar Fernando Lopez also observed a new case in a
rural establishment close to this city: it involved a pregnant
cow found in the fields of Juan Carlos Robilotte, showing the
same incisions, with the difference that the cow was about to
give birth. "There was a circle [on the left flank, above the
udder] through wihch half of the calf's body was protruding, but
I couldn't ascertain if there were any lesions, since it was in
an advanced state of decomposition."

* A Racehorse *

A racehorse belonging to the Quarter Horse breed, belonging to
stables near the Rio Negran town of Choele Choel, was found dead
with strange mutilations. "It was as though it had been hollowed
out from within," reported police sources in describing the stud
horse, of considerable economic value.

Veterinarian Carlos Montobbio, who certified the case, reported
that the horse was missing an eye and part of its tongue, but no
incisions on the maxillary had been performed. It had also been
castrated and a significant part of its small intestine and
rectum had been removed. The expert dismissed the possibility of
an atatck by "yellow-jacket" wasps: "the surgical incisions
presented by the animals cannot be made by insects," said

**Lights Over Carhue**

Several residents claimed to have seen strange lights allegedly
related to the presence of UFOs. Manuel Alesso and Raul Blengio,
two rural livestockers owning property in the Paraje Cilley
area, 10 km from Carhue, saw these lights in the same way as did
other witnesses from different parts of Buenos Aires province.
"Between 7:30 and 8 p.m., I was touring the fields of Arroyo
Venado when I saw two lights to the northeast," said Alesso.  He
added that he stopped his pickup truck and flashed his
headlights at the lights. "The light began to shine even
brighter and seemed to descend, which is why I went over to
where Raul (Blengio) was planting and asked him to look. The
lights were white, round and gave off a sort of haze," he noted.
He said that behind the light there was another less shiny one.

Raul Blengio added that the lights moved slowly: "The weren't
stars...they were strange moving lights," explained Alesso,
while adding that a third witness accompanying them also saw the
lights."I'm certain they have something to do with the cattle
mutlations," he added.

Carolina Montenegro, a young Carhuensan about to graduate with a
devgree in Business Administration, spoke of having a similar
experience: "On Friday night, around nine, I was in the
countryside and to my surprise I saw a small light, orange in
color and smaller than a star, and at the height of  said lights
there were no other stars to be seen. As I watched, the light
changed colors from orange to red, then to green and then back
to orange until after 5 minutes it became smaller and vanished."
