Mystery of farm animal mutilations in Wales
A decade of clinical animal mutilations in Wales is being investigation by pathologists who suspect aliens may be to blame.
The organisation, called the Animal Pathology Field Unit (APFU), was set up in 2001 to investigate after sheep and cattle were discovered dead with strange, surgical-style injuries. Reports have since been produced on mutilated lambs in Beddgelert, Gwynedd, slaughtered texel rams in Plwmp, Dyfed, and a farm in Bleddfa, Powys, where it is claimed 20 ewes go missing every June.
And in a plot twist worthy of Steven Spielberg-produced summer blockbuster Super 8, it is also claimed the military has moved in to find out what is going on. In the Ohio-set blockbuster the US army imprisons a confused extraterrestrial that has crash-landed on Earth before it eventually gets out on the loose.
The APFU concentrates most of its resources in the Rea valley near the border and in towns including Knighton and Llandrindod Wells, where mutilations are said to be rife.
It claims the injuries are too “sophisticated” to have been caused by predators and animals have been killed in locations which are difficult to reach without being detected.
And Phil Hoyle, of the APFU, says the curious lack of blood or footprints at the scene – despite the surgical removal of large amounts of tissue – means extraterrestrials can’t be ruled out as the cause of the attacks.
He said: “We are looking to the UFO connection and things people are describing, unconventional things entering the sea and leaving the sea.
“We have some farmers that have seen unusual lights and found animals killed in an extremely surgical way.
“These are not done by satanic cults. These are very sophisticated – whether done by aliens, military or some clandestine monitoring, something unusual is going on.”
John Duggan, a farmer with more than 700 acres of land from Monaughty near Knighton, where one of the mutilations is alleged to have taken place, said: “We do find sheep dead, usually when we find them they have been killed by wildlife, like birds.
“We haven’t seen anything surgical – it is just something dead or carved up and you might not be able to find it for two or three days.”
Mr Hoyle – who has been investigating UFOs since 1983 – said Wales, alongside the US, is one of the world’s hotspots for the mutilation phenomenon.
“We don’t know what has the ability to do this: literally to walk into an isolated area, surgically remove tissue, walk out and not leave a footprint or anything,” he said.
He said activity in the past six months had increased significantly, and claimed the military had moved in to monitor the situation.
The Ministry of Defence denied it had any personnel in Wales looking for UFOs.
A spokesman said: “There is no benefit in such investigations.”
Beddgelert, Gwynedd, 2001: A lamb was found on a small farm a few miles outside of Beddgelert. A large, oval-shaped hole had been made through its left hip bone. It was roughly an inch-wide and there was a 45-degree-angled smooth “trepanning” of the bone. The field notes ask: What sort of mechanism could have achieved that?
Brook Farm, Plwmp, Dyfed, 2002: According to field notes a farmer found mutilated texel rams in the morning having inspected the animals the night before when there was no sign of anything unusual. A week before the ram attack the farmer had lost six ewes to what the APFU describes as the “usual modus operandi” which includes a jaw strip, missing tongue and hardly any blood.
Woodside farm, Monaughty, Bleddfa, Powys, 2009: Four dead ewes were found with facial strips. According to field notes there were “a number of other odd incidents down the years including an annual instance of 15 to 20 ewes disappearing without trace.” Notes state: “It should also be noted that the SAS are known to conduct training exercises in this area, again a common denominator, could they be monitoring the situation?” - walesonline
Messages to extraterrestrials
It seems as though the world has been mildly obsessed with the idea of an alien invasion ever since the Discovery Channel aired a documentary in April 2010 entitled “Into The Universe With Stephen Hawking,” in which renowned theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking cautioned against attempting contact with extraterrestrials, who he suggested are likely hostile. His daughter Lucy, however, ignored this warning.
In February 2011, Lucy Hawking, writer-in-residence for Arizona State University’s Origins Project, launched a writing contest called “Dear Aliens,” which asked students to answer the following questions: What would you say to extraterrestrials if earthlings are contacted from outer space? If you had to speak for humanity, what would you say?
According to the Arizona Republic, nearly 1,000 messages were submitted to the contest. Benjamin Lee, a seventh-grade student from Mesa, Arizona won the contest. At a ceremony in early April 2011, Stephen Hawking was present to read Lee’s message:
Dear Aliens, Please help us save our world. Not from you, from ourselves. We are destroying our planet and need help from more technologically advanced beings. Our planet is polluted, many nations are at war, there is civil unrest, and our economy is in turmoil.
And despite Stephen Hawking’s grim warning against attempting alien contact, Lee’s message was beamed into space, where is was bounced off the moon.
Professor and theoretical physicist Paul Davies was also involved with the “Dear Aliens” contest. Davies is head of the SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Post Detection Task Group, which means that, when contact is made with extraterrestrials, it is Davies’ responsibility to determine what message to send back to the extraterrestrials.
Another message to extraterrestrials was recently sent to space–cyberspace that is. Hank Green of the Vlogbrothers (Hank and John Green, a.k.a. the Vlogbrothers, are two of the most successful YouTubers) just posted a video to YouTube titled, “A Letter to the Aliens.” According to Ology.com, this video gives extraterrestrials “a crash course in human biology and society.” - openminds

Weird, Birdlike Mystery Drone Crashes in Pakistan
It looks a bit like silver bird. It probably was used to spy on insurgents. And now it’s in the hands of the Pakistanis.
WIRED editor-in-chief Chris Anderson flags pictures of an unusual, unfamiliar drone that reportedly crashed crashed over southwestern Pakistan late last week. It’s a surveillance drone, with a camera attached — recovered from the crash but not apparently visible in this photo — rather than the larger, deathly flying robots that shoot missiles. This one looks tiny, with a wingspan not much longer than a man’s outstretched arms, and clearly light enough for a grown man to carry.
The Pakistani Frontier Corps in Baluchistan province recovered the drone. And they confidently declare it to be an “American surveillance unmanned aerial vehicle.” But as Anderson points out, it doesn’t look like anything the U.S. flies — or at least acknowledges flying. What’s the deal? - wired
Russian cannibal made meatballs and sausage out of victim and posted videos online
A young Russian man who was curious about the taste of human flesh stabbed a man to death and then made meatballs and sausage out of his corpse, the Ria Novosti news agency reported.
"The accused stabbed the man a few times, and after having assured himself that the man was dead, he cut up his body and ate him," an official told Ria Novosti.
If that weren't wicked enough, the 21-year-old cannibal, a chef in the Arctic city of Murmansk, made sick videos of himself turning his victim's flesh into meals and then posted them online, the Daily Mail reported.
But cops quickly took them down from the Internet.
The killer, who was not named in news reports, confessed after cops tracked him down earlier this month.
He told police that he had plans to kill and eat at least 10 more people.
He also told investigators he found his victim on a gay website. He said he chose to target a gay man because he believed gay men are more discreet about online relationships, Ria Novosti reported.
Authorities were led to the killer by the victim's mother, who reported her son missing and instructed police to look into his circle of online partners.
If convicted of murder, the man faces 15 years in prison. - nydailynews
