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 marks. **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 countryside." 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 Montobbio. **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." ======================================================= Translation (C) 2002.
