A veterinarian stated that there were several mutilation cases
in the province's southern reaches. Julio Frette was the only
professional who presented a report on an event which occurred
in the month of August in Concepcion de la Sierra. "There were
four more cases that were never made known," he remarked. He
added that they were not reported due to the ignorance of the
parties who made the discovery, and that the mystery has not yet
been solved.

Background: Frette remarked that cattle mutilations have been
recorded in the US for the past 30 years.

...the central offices of SENASA closed all cases in the
country, attributing the mutilations to a mouse of the
Oxymycterus genus, known as the "red-muzzled mouse." Three
months after the mysterious discovery of a mutilated cow in the
vicinity of Concepcion de la Sierra, Veterinarian Julio Frette
stated that in fact four similar cases had been recorded in the
province's southern reaches, and which were not made known.

The veterinarian, a resident of the aforementioned community,
was the only one to present a detailed report to the National
Health and Agroalimentary Quality Service (SENASA).

Frette explained that he did not witness the other findings, but
that the events were known to local residents. "At [the town of]
Apostoles, in the Las Tunas wilderness, a producer found a
mutilated animal and set it on fire," he remarked. .

The veterinarian explained that in the light of these events,
two conditions must arise for investigation to take place: that
the cattleman be aware that he is facing an irregular event and
that there should be a professional willing to visit the site.

The case which became public was the one in which Frette
participated and occurred on August 8, 2002. On that day, a zebu
hybrid cow was found dead with strange injuries at lot 245 of
the Concepcion neighborhood, in a small farm only a few meters
from the city limits.

The animal, which was about to give birth, had disappeared 4
days earlier and according to the report, suffered the
mutilation of several internal organs. "The absence of the
muscles of the left side of the jaw is evident, leaving the
maxillary bare of all tissue. Absence of larynx, pharynx and
upper portion of the esophagus and trachea. Absence of ocular
orb and left ear. Tongue was not found but the hyloides bone was
present and perfectly desiccated. Absence of mammary gland; the
abdominal cavity presented an opening corresponding to the
region and the calf that was soon to be born could not be found.
Absence of the rectum and large intestine, genitals, with the
dexterity of how said organs were extracted being a standout,"
says the report.

What drew the attention of those who saw the carcass--as in
other cases--was that the incisions were perfectly cauterized.
"An incision measuring approximately 20 cm was made in the
region of the brisket, showing red tissue as though it had been
dead for only hours, and within approximately 10 minutes, those
present attested that the tissue rapidly acquired an almost
shiny black coloration."

Witnesses to the event aside from the veterinarian were the
owner of lot 254, Emilio Fernandez, cattle rancher Osvaldo
Kreclevich (the animal's owner) and police officers from the
local sheriff's office. The delegation returned on the 9th,
12th, 17th and 19th of said month. During the last visit, the
carcass gave off such an intense odor that it was noticeable 70
meters away, says the report. No signs of a struggle or self-
defense by the animal were noticed at the site. The pasture
field was overgrown with an abundance of horsebrush (esparto
grass), but the area where the carcass was found was clean and
scorched. Although no new cases were recorded, these elements
led Frette to believe that the mystery is still unsolved.
