Cattle, Sheep and Mutilations Continue To Rise

The bizarre world of cattle mutilations had been quiet for a few years. In San Luis Valley Colorado, a rancher found four mutilated calves on his ranch, with no ready explanation of what happened to them. In this picture, only the udder has been removed by what looks like an incision as opposed to be ripped away by a scavenger.

Rancher Manuel Sanchez has found no signs of human attackers, such as footprints or ATV tracks. And there are no signs of an animal attack by a coyote or mountain lion. Also, no blood spilled around the animals.

It was like that in Weld County 10 to 30 years ago, and some farmers and ranchers have said they still find mutilated livestock, but they don’t report it because of skeptics.

No blood on or around the animal is common!

In almost every mutilation case in Weld, the cattle and horses that were taken to Colorado State University for examination were determined to be mutilated by predators — usually coyotes — feeding on the dead animals. However, when animals are found like the sheep opposite, with little to no blood spilled on the grounds around the animal, and the cut showing no tears, as would be expected by a predator, then it isn’t a predator and is usually not reported!

Farmers and ranchers joke that “coyotes with scalpels” have been mutilating the cattle. For more information, follow this link to an investigators website.
