Garren Cattle Mutilation (viewer discretion)

September 22, 2009 | By | 5 Comments


This animal was last seen on Friday afternoon March 20th 2009. The ranch manager had counted all animals when feeding, so we can verify this. Saturday afternoon around 2:30pm the ranch manager was feeding the herd and noticed his count was off by one. After looking around in areas where cows had grazed previously, he spotted the animal dead.


He noticed the “udder” had been removed.


Upon closer observation, “he stated” it looked like it had been surgically removed.


Evidence of new born calf. Remains of the placentia.

Doing a quick walk around looking for evidence, he spotted a new born calf. It had seemed the cow delivered the calf sometime Friday night, and the calf was able to nurse briefly until the mother was killed. The calf was waiting at the birthing area for the mother to return. The ranch manager rescued the calf and as of my investigation the calf was doing fine and being bottle fed. What ever killed the cow and removed the udder, was not interested in a new born calf. Question: Would a predator attack a 1100 pound animal for food, when a new born calf lay helplessly less than 50 yards away? New born calves have a defense mechanism of low scent to protect against predators, but the placenta is rich in vitamins and “is not” odor free.


Scavenger damage done Saturday night March 21st. Ranch manager has pictures from Saturday afternoon showing “no” scavenger damage.

This image shows scavenger damage which occured sometime Saturday night. Notice the difference in scavenger damage and the second image showing the udder missing. Notice no stains on the ground near the udder but stains on the ground near the anal area.


Saturday evening March 21st, I received approval from the ranch owner to meet him the next day Sunday March 22nd to conduct my field investigation.

5. Animal measurements performed to best of ability. Exact stats can be retrieved from owner.

6. Bare spot located 40 feet S/E of animal and appears to be old ant hill, (bagged dirt sample)

7. GPS coordinates taken and sketch of animal with compass stats

8. Animal sample areas, one at udder and one at scavenger damage area.

9. Check eyes, ears, tongue, teeth. All appear normal.

10. Magnetic sweep on skin looking for metallics. None appear to be found, but bagged anyway.

11. Dark or Puncture mark check.  None found.

12. Check for blood pooling, or bath. None found, only blood area was near scavenger damage and birthing area. Noticeable slight oozing of clear liquid from nose and mouth.

    It seems like our scientists have discovered some need for some thing and the ingredients are skin, organ tissue, etc.. I say this because it appears that in the dark of night there are people showing up with equipment to drain blood and surgically remove organs/body parts and they do so with precision. I urge people to begin to think of and about where this ‘need’ is rooted. What could scientists be doing with these calf parts? I think it is science and/or medically rooted myself. Let’s figure out. There are highly intelligent people among us.

    If it were scientist; why would they go to such stringent and difficult lengths to cover all their tracks? Draining blood, covering anything tire or foot tracks; very drastic. All that would require more effort than the experiment itself. And if it were scientists; they could just buy the cows to do whatever experiment they would be doing. If they needed just the organs and blood; then they could purchase what they need at the slaughter house. Probably cheaper and less work than going to the range and covering their tracks.

    You could probably rule out scientists and poachers. It seems a poacher would take the whole cow; as I can not imagine much profit from cow organs and blood.

    Who would be more likely to get what they want from the cows on the range? The one’s that would not drive up to a farm to purchase a cow; or drive up to a slaughter house. Aliens? Probably.

    maybe the cattle were coaxed off during the day and brought to the street where they were killed far away from the site by a cult or something like that. some sadists or freaks could have done it

    Just have cameras to watch them because they might get another anmial… you never know.
    I am truly sorry for your loss

  4. Gerard says:

    Good points you both made.. most likely not scientists.. no doubt about it.. any experimenting a scientist would need to do would be easily available to them in a lab setting.. don’t know why I didn’t think of that.. cameras set up at every single farm sight is a pretty good idea especially now since camera equipment and online survelance has become quite affordable to everyone. It’s time to really start putting up some cameras so we can all finally know the truth behind these things.. we can’t also rule out the possiblity that there are people out there.. doing these very odd things to incite notions of alien’s and paranormal ideology.. hey there are crazies who love to get a charge out of a news report .. It’s sad that the animals were brutally slain … any other suggestions? I’d love to hear them.

    I am a particularly sneaky person and there is not much to covering tracks… walk with wide shoes walk from grass patch to patch and walk from the toes to the heel slowly and there are little to no tracks. maybe an ex millitary commando with acess to millitary tools did this my, imagination wanders… 0_o
