Argentina: Cattle Mutilations in the Patagones District

Is the Chupacabras on the loose? Questions arise over the discovery of dead cows and sheep. The discovery of mutilated animals in various fields caused alarm in the rural community, which is unable to explain the reason for these events. A cattleman describes the situation experienced.

The subject gives rise to conflicting opinions, from the most skeptical to the most credulous, each willing to tell their own version of the events: that it is a subject imposed by the government to forestall discussions of any other matter, that they are caused by pumas, and other theories that have been circulated by the media.

In this case, Carlos Dietz is a cattleman in the Patagones District and he told his story on the "Patagones y algo mas" program transmitted on Radio Nacional Viedma.

Dietz is a cattleman in a field located in the region of the 31st. He engages in agriculture and livestock and is one of those who are unable to explain the anomalies that took place on his property.

In an interview with journalist Daniel Etman, Carlos said that animals began appearing with their jaws completely devoured some 15 days ago. "There were a few cases and mine is one of them. It's very strange. You can't say anything or they'll laugh in your face," Dietz remarked on the capital area radio station.

"Strangest of all is that only the animal's jawbone was eaten away. Nothing more. It's the only thing. All that was left were the carretillas. The soft parts were fully intact, and the anus is also intact," Dietz explained, clarifying that he discusses the matter in the hopes that no sensational claims will be raised about it.

Regarding the discovery on his field, he said the animal involved weighed approximately 500 kilos. "Had there been a fight, or a threatening situation, the animal would've left marks on the ground, but this appears to have been a sudden death, gently falling to the ground and staying there. It never managed to let off a few kicks. Very surprising."

As for the animal's decomposition, he said carrion animals will reduce it to bone in little time. "Mice appear and dig holes. Vultures arrive and polish the carcass clean. In this case, it's been over ten days and the animal's intact. Only the upper part of the jaw is missing. No carrion animals have come near, not at all."

The area, he said, consists of small farms ranging from 500 to 800 hectares. These are flat fields without hills. "They are basically all ranches and you can see the animals from your house. You go out to survey the area and you can see the entire property. This cow (the one found without its jaw) is 400 meters from my home. I see it and what surprises me the most is that no mice or vultures have approached. Not one."

Questions arise daily, with each episode that occurs in the area fields. Up to now it is said that there have been three incidents in the Patagones District, one of them on a field on the way to the 7 de Marzo tourist village, better known as La Baliza.

Each event gives rise to questions and uncertainty. Questions that arise with every statement put forth. No one has a logical explanation of the event and absolutely all reject the story of the legendary Chupacabras in the area.
