**At the El Oso wilderness, 33 kilometers south of Malbran**

**Animal's owner claims locals neither heard nor saw anything

In the El Oso wilderness of the Aguirre department, a cow was
found with mutilations to its head and genitalia. This event is
quite similar to the discovery made in late June of this year in
the Quimilioj pasture some 16 km south of Garza in the
department of Moreno. The mutilated animal was discovered last
Sunday in a field 33 km south of Malbran, and is the property of
Oscar Suarez, who also owns the cow.

Suarez told El Liberal: "The cow was missing the hide off its
maxillaries, its tongue and left eye, an ear and four teats, but
the remainder [of the animal] was quite sound even though it had
been dead for several days. He likewise stated that no locals
saw or heard anything unusual several kilometers around. The
owner is startled because "it's odd that no carrion animals, no
vultures or crows, have turned up, which they do whenever
there's a carcass present."

The cow's body was inside the El Oso ranch along an internal
road that runs parallel to the barbed wire fence. "On Wednesday
the 6th we let the animal out of its pen, and I found it on
Sunday the 10th. It had apparently been dead for some two days."

Another detail that drew Suarez's attention is that when he
returned on Wednesday to where the animal was found, it was
still intact and had not yet decomposed in spite of the days
elapse from its death and the intensely hot weather. Upon being
consulted about the situation having happened before, Suarez was
adamant: "This the first time something like it has happened in
the region."

He dismissed the possibility that cattle rustlers could have
been involved, "because when they are involved, they take the
meat and all of the animal's useful organs for sale, but that
didn't happen here, since the cow was whole with all of its

As a casual remark, Oscar Suarez related that a local advised
him that this could be either the work of a Martian or of the
Devil, "but locals saw nothing strange."
