Argentina: Background Info on Cattle Mutilations

Date: October 3, 2012

Cattle Mutilations: Background Information on Cattle Mutilation in Santo Domingo (Argentina)
By Andrea Pérez Simondini - Visión OVNI

Veterinarian Dr. Jorge H. Teves has informed the media of the events you will read about below, without the ADDED information that appears in most of them. While he states that this is a "strange" case that is unknown to him, he makes it clear that he cannot explain it - only report his observations.

If we recall the year 2000, we may recall that mutilated animals appeared in several provinces, presenting the same characteristics. Accounts at the time were numerous, but the truth was never known, and no scientific theory on the matter was ever convincing.

In the year 2002, precisely in the month of June, I had the chance to take these photos, and one of the details that stood up was the incision made on the animals' hides. The demarcation is exact, performed with an element that both cuts and burns simultaneously (much like pyro-engraving). Furthermore, the bones were almost completely fleshless, with no traces of blood to be found on the soil, while internal organs such as the intestines and stomach remained intact, without a single incision, and clean.

The mystery now returns seven years later, since on August 4, 2009, Dr. Jorge Teves, the local veterinarian, reported to a call from a peasant who found a calf on his property, missing its left flank. There was no blood to be found around it. It was missing intestines, stomach and a kidney. A part of the intestine remained and its contents did not spill.

Dr. Teves remarks that SENASA mentioned the red-muzzled mouse as a possible culprit, but what is strange is the fact that entrails are being removed without any spillage of blood or fecal matter. Both the local police and the veterinarian took photos, of which I have chosen a few for you to see.

Twenty days later, on August 24, 2009, the animal remained abandoned on the field and had not yet decomposed. No microorganisms were in evidence and even more striking is that no dog or carrion bird has approached it to eat its flesh, as often occurs.
Three animals with similar injuries were also found in the neighboring town of Providencia, presenting similar injuries. These photos show a perfect incision in the skin and a removal of the eyes. In this photo, the incision has been circular and under the tail. Its owners have the impression that the animal was attacked while standing, and fell to the ground after it was dead.

I hope this report is sufficiently clear, and that the photos provide the necessary illustration to give the case the seriousness it deserves. Many different stories will be put forth, everyone will reach their own conclusions, but the fact remains that there is no specific explanation for these deaths.

I would like to thank Dr. Teves for his kindness and willingness to provide this information.
