Recent Cattle Mutilation In Southern Colorado Hotspot

Chuck Zukowski at UFOnut.com is reporting a recent cattle mutilation and investigation in the Trinidad, Colorado area. This is another of several animal mutilations in the general location in recent years.

Monday morning August 8th, 2011, Zukowski was contacted by rancher Miller from Trinidad, Colorado. He informed him that one of his cows had been mutilated over the past weekend. Zukowski had investigated one of his previous mutilated cows back on March of 2009. This rancher has had three separate mutilation cases.

Zukowski notes:

Field Investigator: Chuck Zukowski, Colorado Springs, Co

Animal was too heavy to roll over by me and rancher so right side of animal was unseen.

Predator evidence: none

Flies present

Normal smell for two day old carcass

No evidence of struggle on dirt

No evidence of human intervention causing animal’s death

Evidence of bloating

Evidence of out-gassing

Rancher’s dog was sick after interacting with carcass day before, but appears fine during investigation.

Samples Taken:

Tissue sample taken along edge of oval hole near anal area

Tissue sample taken along edge of oval hole near utter area

Tissue sample taken along edge of oval hole between front forelegs

Soil sample taken near carcass, test sample taken 50 feet away at similar terrain

Ear tag from missing ear left side

Action Items:

The three tissue samples will be sent to Colorado State University Veterinary Lab, Fort Collins, for analysis.

- Tissue analysis will be determined by samples when received

The soil samples will be sent to a soil analysis lab I work with. (Name on file and not revealed, per lab’s request)

- Soil analysis will be a comparison analysis looking for any differences between the two.

Zukowski's Conclusion:

Unfortunately I was unable to take this animal to the lab for a complete necropsy. There are a few factors which can stand in the way to achieve this. One, time accrued of deceased animal. Two, distance to the lab. Three, proper speciman to achieve complete necropsy for proper analysis.

As information on current mutilation cases become more available to the public, the public in turn, knows who to contact when a new mutilation occurs. This hand-shake of information going back and forth from investigator to the public, will ultimately achieve our goals of finding the evidence we need to resolve these cases.

NOTE: I have to ask the question....are these animal mutilations related in any way to the proximity of Dulce Base and the reported underground passages to this general location? Here are links to previous posts:
