Many believers in ETs think that aliens might be responsible for mutilations of cattle which have been discovered over the last fifty years. When the mutilated cattle are found, no one can see any footprints or tracks near the mutilated cow. Therefore, many believe that UFOs might have something to do with it.
Biochemist Dr. Colm Kelleher has investigated many claimed mutilations first-hand. In his book, Brain Trust, The Hidden Connection Between Mad Cow and Misdiagnosed Alzheimer’s Disease, he argues convincingly that cattle mutilations are most likely a secret operation to track the spread of mad cow disease and related diseases like scrapie.
This is indeed what it looks like is occurring. This is how it would happen. First, the animal would be hit with something like a tranquilizer dart, and then would be lifted into a helicopter. Then the animal would be euthanized, and key body parts would be removed and tested for the presence of certain diseases.
Kelleher states that when these mutilated cattle are found, usually the eye, tongue, anus, large intestine, and reproductive organs have been removed in clean, bloodless incisions. Research done in the 1980s and 1990s has shown that these body parts are where the highest concentration of prions (infectious agents) are found. Elk and deer have also been found mutilated the same way cattle have been.
Kelleher spoke to retired sheriff Tex Graves. Graves had investigated more than one hundred cattle mutilations in the state of Colorado. He said that, before the mutilations, there were always strange and silent aircraft or black helicopters in the area. He said that he had to restrain the local ranchers from shooting at the helicopters. These helicopters, flying at illegal and abnormal altitudes, would almost always appear without identifiable markings. Kelleher found evidence (such as broken legs on one mutilated cow) that indicated that the cattle were dropped to the ground from the air. One patrol officer documented cuts and abrasions around the ankles of mutilated cows. The officer seemed to think that they might have been caused by a clamp-like device that could have been used to secure the animals and lift them by means of a helicopter. Another policeman said he turned over one mutilated cow and discovered a large needle. Kelleher stated: “… cattle mutilations begin to look very much like acts of covert surveillance intended to monitor our food supply. The only rational purpose I could think of for such a monitoring operation would be to assess the level of prion infection in the nation’s cattle. And the reason for the secrecy was obvious. Whoever was doing it wanted to avoid raising the alarm.”
