Cow Found Mutilated In Saskatchewan

Pregnant cow found with missing parts in Stockholm area

REGINA - A macabre mystery that pops up around the world has
surfaced once again on a secluded Saskatchewan farm.

The most recent case of cattle mutilation occurred in the
Stockholm area, just yards away from where Heather Harris and
her husband slept. Harris was out tending the cattle the next
day when she made the grisly discovery.

"It's hard to describe what she looked like...", Harris said,
recalling finding the cow's corpse. "I told my husband, 'You
don't even want to see this.' "

The pregnant cow was missing its rectum, female organs, udder,
navel, top and bottom lips, one ear and one eye. The animal's
tongue appeared to be cut out.

Harris said there was no sign of blood in the area, and all of
the injuries appear to be precise incisions. Harris said there
were no signs of struggle in the area, and no tire tracks,
footprints or blood anywhere around the animal.

The gruesome scenario appears to be a classic case of "cow
mutilation", a bizarre occurrence attributed variously to
natural predators, aliens, government operatives, cults and a
variety of other elusive sources.

Mutilations first rose to public prominence in the United States
in the 1960s, and have continued to surface around the world
ever since - including from time to time in Saskatchewan.

Documented mutilations are remarkably similar and often involve
the removal of one ear, the animal's eyes, udders and sexual
organs, tongue and lips. They are also characterized by a lack
of blood and what appear to be clean incisions and cuts.

Many who have studied cow mutilations maintain the deaths are
attributed entirely to natural sources, in particular the
effects of scavengers and predators, coupled with the effects of
dehydration and decomposition.

But others aren't so sure. Some surmise the mutilations are the
work of alien spacecraft conducting experiments or gathering
genetic information from the animals, and others believe they
are conducted by cults or Satanists who use the animals' blood
and body parts for rituals.

Still others maintain the mutilations to be part of a government
conspiracy - whether testing high-powered laser weapons or doing
covert research about radiation, mad cow disease, or other cow
illnesses which could spread to humans.

After looking at pictures of the remains of Harris' animal,
veterinarian Dr. Kathleen Francis said she was shocked.

"Anything that could make that kind of incision took a little
bit of skill", said Francis, who has been a vet for 11 years.
"There was absolutely no blood anywhere around the carcass which
was really weird, you know, to be able to make those kinds of
cuts without losing blood somewhere on the ground."

Francis discounted predators as a possible cause of the cow's
death, noting there were no bites or claw marks on the carcass.
She said the bloodless wounds could mean some kind of electric
cautery unit was involved.

"I'm not so convinced I believe the alien theories, but I could
certainly go for the cult or that kind of thing happening...."
she said. "It kind of makes you think - strange things are out

Harris said the experience has left her shaken and she is
unwilling to go outside by herself at night. But after reading
up on some of the theories, Harris says she still isn't sure
what to think about the bizarre occurrence.

"I know from what I've seen on the Net they put it down to cults
or extraterrestrial... but I don't know", she said. "I just know
it's very, very freaky."
