 Argentina: Cattle Mutilation in Hasenkamp

 Research by EDITH MONEDA (ICOU-Colón) with DANIEL PADILLA (Ufologist)

 Geographic Location

 Hasenkamp is a community some 80 km northeast of Paraná, capital city of Entre Rios. The case in question took place in mid-July, almost surely on Thursday, July 15, in a field known as "El Sambuyón" leased by a man surnamed Lescano.

 The Mutilation

 A red Aberdeen Angus heifer, weighing some 400 kg, had given birth to two young some days before, and surprise was widespread when the animal was found mutilated in bizarre fashion some 5 kilometers away from the farmhouse in a grassland dotted with espinillo trees. The animal was found under a Nandubay tree (Prosopis affinis) near a wire fence, missing the organs typical to such cases: one eye, an entire udder, tongue, genitals and part of its jawbone. The incisions were cauterized and there was no trace of blood on the field. Oddly enough, both ears were intact. In the affected area, the grass was blackened, as if by some kind of spilled fluid, in the words of the animal's proprietor.

 On Site Research

 Police authorities were notified of the event and the Crime Prevention Brigade of the Paraná Police took on the case, sending a police veterinarian to the scene. A week after the incident, a research team made up of Edith Moneda of ICOU and ufologist Daniel Padilla from Colón visited the area. They were accompanied by part of the Lescano family (father and three children) and they were able to ascertain some significant points of interest, such as:

1. The animal was 'dragged' a meter away from its original position.

2. No traces of any associated anomalies were found in a survey of the surroundings.

3. The acting veterinarian performed abdominal incisions without first ascertaining any strange anomalies or justifying the cause of death.

4. Most noticeably, despite having died 8 days prior, the carcass showed no signs of rigor mortis, as though it had occurred only days before. All of its soft parts, blood and exposed flesh, were normal, without any insects settling upon it.

5. The hyoid bone was remarkably 'clean' without any adhesions. This is a determining factor, as in several cases we have been told that 'not even professional deboners can do such a good job'.

6. The other highly strange event has been the discovery of a small, perfect circle measuring 5 centimeters, cauterized, and located on the animal's hide over the udder. A vital element that was extracted by researchers for study.

7. A magnet was passed all over the cow’s body in a search for metallic elements (filings, parts, etc.) with negative results.

8. There is a windmill with a water tank some 1000 meters from the animal. It shows no anomalies.

9. The locals did not see any 'nocturnal lights' about prior or after the event.

10. In the Hasenkamp event, the mutilating agent did not 'return' to continue mutilating the body, as has happened in other instances. According to the owner, everything was the same as when they found the animal the first day.

 Hypothesis (Luis Burgos)

 While research is ongoing, we can develop a framework toward a "working hypothesis". During a survey of the field two days before finding the lifeless animal, the owner attested that it was in good health and so were its two calves. He did not check on them the next day, and the day after, he was startled to see the calves alone in the field. He undertook a search for the mother and found the unpleasant surprise. We must therefore suppose that it is possible that the cow was 'separated' during the night, mutilated and deposited where she was later found, distant from both little calves. Faced with such a prospect, it is obvious that some questions are more disquieting than the answers. Had the animal been stalked beforehand? Did the mutilation take place on site or elsewhere? Was the body inoculated to keep it fresh for several days? The fact is that we're facing a mutilation of exceptional characteristics that will not have a satisfactory 'official' explanation, much like the hundreds that have taken place since April 2002. What is most convincing to researchers is that this entire event, which took place in 48 hours, invalidates the possibility of any conventional methodology or the involvement of local fauna.

 Research credit: Edith Moneda, indefatigable ICOU travel companion, to whom we are deeply grateful for her willingness to investigate, undertaking a nearly 600 km.long journey at her youthful 82 years of age. An example to be followed by anyone who wants to engage in field research. Congratulations and thanks!
