Argentina: Cattle Mutilation in Puelches
By Quique Mario, CEUFO
Another animal was found mutilated in a field in the Puelches region, some 280 km distant from the city of Santa Rosa, the provincial capital of La Pampa. The specimen involved was a Hereford, known locally as "raza pampa" (Pampa breed).
The animal presented typical incisions on one of its jaws, and was also missing one ear and inner ear, an eye, and had had all of its anal structure removed. The event took place at the Las Piletas ranch.
The owner, who works in the area, says that "lights" are frequently seen in the region and that in the month of April, during a warm evening, he was in the backyard accompanied by his son when the night "was suddenly turned to day" as a very large, bright object hovered over one of the cattle pens.
Terrified, both witnesses entered the house and monitored the strange object's maneuvers, as it hovered for some minutes and then took off at dizzying speed into space. None of the farm animals were injured on that occasion.
An aspect that intrigued them was the fact that not even dogs would approach the dead animal. Neither would the farmer's horse, which refused to approach the carcass despite its rider's insistence. The man was forced to dismount and approach the mutilated cow on foot.
This episode does not surprise them in the least, as they saw the strange incisions on dead animals during the 2002/2003 mutilation wave.
