6.5 – ALIENS IN AMERICA (1.31.14)


Henry County, Missouri. July 19, 2013. Driving across her land, rancher Lyn Mitchell comes upon a horrific sight: one of her Black Angus cows lies dead and maimed in a field.

“The tongue had been removed. The udders, the anus and the reproductive organs had also been removed. The veterinarian ruled out blunt trauma as the cause of death. In fact, no cause of death at all could be determined.”

      – Chris Pittman (UFO Investigator / Historian)

The Mitchell event is just the latest in a half-century long epidemic of mysterious animal mutilations that have occurred all across America. Although experts say they don’t know exactly how many animals have been affected, they estimate the number ranges from 1,000 to 2,000 a year…for the past 20 years. Investigative journalist Linda Moulton Howe was working for CBS News in Denver, Colorado, in 1979, when she witnessed firsthand the strange, precise injuries inflicted on animals.

“We flew do to San Luis, Colorado, because I had gotten a phone call from a sheriff there and he’s telling me, “You need to see this.” We start crossing a field and using our arms to get through thick willows. Pushing the tree branches. And when we got into this space underneath these trees, it didn’t seem possible. Here was a black and white steer and it was lying perfectly, like it should get up. There’s no violence. But there was a perfect circle around that left eye that’s up.  The hide had been removed just down to the bone. And then the left jaw was perfectly removed, the tongue is removed and there’s not a single broken branch.”

Curiously, researchers say that in almost every animal mutilation case, the organs appear to be the target.

“These are very carefully removed. Not torn out. Not chewed away. But precisely and carefully cut away with what appear to be surgical-type incisions. There’s never any blood found near these carcasses. In fact, most times there is no blood within the carcasses themselves.”

Chris Pittman (UFO Investigator / Historian)

“When you’re dealing with natural predators such as coyotes, you’re dealing with lots of blood. It’s an entirely different process and does not produce these clean, bloodless excisions.”

– Linda Moulton Howe
(Author / Investigative Journalist, Earthfiles)

Are these animal mutilations truly extraordinary? Or are farmers and ranchers simply mistaken about how the animals died? Dr. Jim Reynolds is a professor of livestock medicine at Western University in Pomona, California. Over the course of his career, he has seen thousands of animal injuries. After closely examining pictures of these mutilations, he believes many of the animals died from ordinary disease or natural predator attacks. But he says other pictures like this one, taken in Caldwell, Kansas in 1992 are harder to explain.

“Just looking at the picture, I can’t explain how this happened. What’s strange about it is that there’s no evidence of-of hemorrhage or bleeding around the area. We don’t see any blood on the tissue. As a long-time field veterinarian, I’ve not seen this on a dead cow in my career.”

– James Reynolds, DVM
(Prof. of Livestock Medicine, Western Univ.)

Another mutilation case from 1982 also raises questions for Dr. Reynolds, because of the surgical fashion in which the body parts look to have been removed.

“I can’t really explain the removal of this ear. It could have been chewed off by a scavenger, but I can’t really explain I would expect, if this had been chewed off, that there would be a little more tissue damage and probably fresher tissue. I’m not sure about this one.”

– James Reynolds, DVM
(Prof. of Livestock Medicine, Western Univ.)

While mainstream medical professionals are unsure who or what could be responsible for these attacks, Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest the answer may be found by examining strange findings reported at other mutilation sites.

“Sometimes, the animals are lying on top of charred patches of ground. Sometimes those charred patches are exactly the same size and shape as the animals themselves. And very often there have been reports of strange lights in the sky or on the ground in and around the time where the mutilations are taking place.”

Chris Pittman (UFO Investigator / Historian)

“I have come to the conclusion the phenomena that is behind the global animal mutilations of the last at least 100 years, are extraterrestrial biological entities.”

– Linda Moulton Howe
(Author / Investigative Journalist, Earthfiles)

Is it possible that extraterrestrials are behind the cattle mutilation phenomenon? Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest that the evidence for this conclusion dates back much further than just the past 50 years.

“The oldest case that I have been able to discover is from England in 1606. This is mentioned in James I’s court records. Hundreds of sheep were being found strangely slain and parts were taken away, but the meat was left behind. And the particular passage in the record has a very interesting quote at the end. It said that these cases, or incidences, ‘tendeth toward fireworks.’”

– Chris O’Brien (UFO Investigator),
(Author, Stalking the Trickster)

But why would alien beings that are presumably thousands of years more advanced than humans, choose to abduct and maim animals? What could they want with these extracted body parts?  Some Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe that the explanation behind this frightening phenomenon may be that extraterrestrials are actually conducting experiments to benefit humankind.

“One intriguing theory for the cattle mutilations is that extraterrestrials might be monitoring the cattle herd to try and determine if there are emerging viruses that could jump from species to species. That’s to say, they infect the cattle and then we eat cattle in the form of beef, and then we get infected, which is exactly what happened with mad cow disease in Britain.”

– Nick Redfern (Author, Memoirs of a Monster Hunter),
(The Real Men in Black), (Final Events),
(The World’s Weirdest Places),
(Close Encounters of the Fatal Kind),
(Bloodline of the Gods), (The NASA Conspiracies),
(On the Trail of the Saucer Spies:
UFOs and Government Surveillance)

Could these animal mutilations really be proof that alien beings are still present in America today, continuing to monitor our progress, and even intervening in earthly affairs? Perhaps further clues can be found by examining strange events witnessed by the United States military.
