Who would cut the tongues and take the reproductive organs from several cows? That’s the mystery police in a small town 90 miles away from Kansas City are dealing with.
Robert Hills, Henry County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy, says the first cow was discovered in December of 2011, the second and third this summer. All were female cows and were owned by rancher Lyn Mitchell.
“We couldn’t see any signs of trauma, and it doesn’t appear that there was any type of wild animal, such coyotes, that were involved,” Hills told KMOX.
The first cow discovered on Mitchell’s ranch had her tongue and ear removed. Mitchell told KSHB-TV she assumed the mutilation was part of a sacrificial ritual or just teenagers, so she didn’t report it.
The next two discovered on July 9th and 19th of this year had their tongues removed along with their udders, anus, reproductive organs, and ears. A veterinarian wasn’t called to examine the first two cows.
But one did examine the third one.
Mitchell said the veterinarian told her the cuts to the cow were precise and surgical. Also what seems to be the common denominator of all these incidents is the lack of blood and other bodily fluids surrounding the area and inside the animal.
Mitchell told the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) that the third cow’s heart was removed and exposed, but was not taken. She believes that maybe whoever did this was interrupted and she does not rule out the possibility of aliens.
Deputy Hills says decomposition of animals in the summer can cause a certain type of bloating.
“In some cases its apparent that theses are tears, and in other cases they may look like an incision and that’s what their described as.”
A veterinarian’s report on the third cow is not yet complete. Until then, Hills says this remains an open investigation.
“We’re having to look at this from two sides,” says Hills. “Some people believe that there are aliens that are involved in this or the possibility of the occult going to the other end of the spectrum, we’ve talked to other people that say that just when cows die that’s what happens to their bodies.”
“We know that there have been quite a few deaths of cattle this year in Missouri due to the ergot fungus that may have lead to these animals deaths. We’re just not able to determine what the cause of death is at this point,” Hills says. - StLouis.CBSLocal
Third Cow Mutilation Missouri - MUFON Case 49159 or cut/paste - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-WSz2y4A0Ck
MUFON Case #49159 - Blairstown, Missouri
From ASD - I am reporting this incident for information purposes at the request of Chuck Zukowski and State Director Debbie Ziegelmeyer. No UFO was seen, however, there is a possible landing mark and since UFOs have been seen in connection with animal mutilations cases in the past it may be useful to have this on record. This is the third known mutilation on the same ranch. Please see the attached reports for more detail. The case is ongoing, I am setting up camera traps on the site and have submitted samples for lab analysis through Chuck Z.
Date of discovery: July 19, 2013 Time: 9:30 a.m.
NW corner of Henry County, 84 miles SE of Kansas City
The rancher called me at 10:00 a.m. this morning to report that she had another dead cow that she just found on her property. She called the sheriff and a veterinarian and they were already on their way to the site.
The witness had been at the site on Wednesday and left at 6 pm. She took Thursday off and returned on Friday morning to find the dead cow. It had been 39 1/2 hours since her last site visit.
I arrived at 1:00 p.m. with another investigator. The site is approximately 75 yards from the second gate to the property, and it was another 100+ yards to the gate at the road. The vet just left the scene and he examined the cow. The cow was found with a cut in the front of the body between the front two legs, and the heart outside the body. All of the teats had been cut off of the udder, the tongue was cut out, and one eye was missing (the eye may have been missing due to vultures or maggots, which were already on the cow). The vet had the rancher roll the cow over with a tractor so he could examine the other side so when we arrived the animal had been moved slightly but was in the same location.
The men opened up the wound in the front of the cow between the front legs in order to view the interior better. This included moving the ribs. The vet said that there was no blood on the ground, the cuts were precise, and that the heart and chest cavity had little blood in them, which was very unusual and unexplainable. He vet also said that he knew animals did not cause the wounds. He looked for bullet holes or other injuries to the cow but could find none, and he does not know the cause of death.
The rancher is going to obtain a copy of the report from the veterinarian and the police report in the next couple of days. The rancher
said that this was another of her best cows, and that she produced a calf every year. The cow was 7 years old and valued at approximately $2,000.
What we found on site: A strange darkened outline around where the cow was lying on on the ground, which looks like it has been burned. Also found an imprint in a cow pie that does not match up to any known animal or human boot print. No people should have been on the property besides the ranchers. It was not a tire print. Could this have been a landing site?
Received an e-mail from Chuck Zukowski about a cow mutilation case in Henry County. I spoke to the witness today and she stated following:
The rancher found the cow yesterday, July 10 in the North side of her property. It was lying dead on her left side, with her rear end, tongue, and udder removed. The witness did not raise the head of the cow to look at the second eye. The witness had driven by the night before, but did not see anything, however, it was dark and the cow is black so it may have been there. The cow had maggots on it, so it had been there at least a couple of days. It has been very hot, up to 100 degrees and very dry. The witness saw vultures on her on July 10. The witness said that normally birds will fly around when something dies, but they were not there before July 10. It was 100 degrees at the time she found the cow so it is decomposing rapidly. She has registered Black Angus Cows and this one was her best, a 7 –year old in her prime that would have produced more calves in the future. The cow was worth $2,000. She wonders if it was random or if whoever/whatever did this was looking for the best of the herd. The witness has not seen any other cows going near this one.
Note: The witness says that as of today - July 24 - no coyotes have eaten on the carcasses. This is not normal.
A mutilated heifer calf was found on the site with its tongue and female genitalia removed and part of the jaw tissue and muscle removed to the bone. The rancher buried the calf at that time.
