ARGENTINA: MUTILATED COW IN GENERAL ACHA
Anothre black Aberdeen Angus cow - this time pregnant - was found dead and mutilated at km 17 of Provincial Route No. 152, jurisdiction of General Acha, a locality some 110 km south of Santa Rosa, La Pampa.
The animal was missing its right ear, presented a large incision in the udder and an absence of genitals and anus. Only a large hole measuring some 25 centimeters in diameter was found, with its edges cauterized, and through which 40 centimeters of the dead front legs of its unborn calf protruded.
The animal's death is estimated to have occurred 10 days ago and goes on to form part of the numerous cases reported in the area, which have the aforementioned Pampean locality as their epicenter.
