How reasonable is it to theorize, from what little evidence we
have, that ETs are the ones responsible for animal mutilations?

Someone questioning the ETMT (ET as Mutilator Theory) might ask
'Why would ETs want to mutilate cattle?'.

If the reply is that the mutilators need some substance found in
the rectums of Earth cattle, we should be able to ask 'How
reasonable is it to assume that ETs having the technology to
travel to Earth would be *required* to travel to Earth again and
again to collect the precious BRS [Bovine Rectum Substance]
because they are ...

1. Unable to find the BRS anywhere closer to home;

2. Unable to synthesize the substance at home;

3. Unable to steal a bull and a few cows to establish their own
    herd;

4. Unable to genetically engineer any of their own bacteria,
    plants or animals to produce the precious BRS.

5. Etc.


In another strand of this thread Lesley Cluff answers question 2
as follows:

How convenient.

We explain ETs presence on Earth by assuming they have
technology far superior to our own.

We explain ETs behavior while on Earth by assuming that they
don't have technology much advanced over our own.

Trying to have it both ways is a good example of ad hoc reasoning.

It _is_ far more reasonable to suppose that ETs are probing and
measuring than it is to suppose that they need the precious BRS
for their own use.

However, we should be able to question this theory (if we can
assume that this supposition is a full grown theory) by asking
'Why would they have to kill the cattle?'.

If ET was genuinely concerned about secrecy, why would they
leave all those dead cows lying around? Why not use the same
sample extraction techniques on the cattle as they do on the
humans?

When abducting and extracting body fluids from humans, ETs show
great skill and an obsessive need for secrecy yet they leave a
memory block any amateur hypnotist can penetrate. If they really
wanted abductees not to know why wouldn't they use rohypnol or
some other 'date rape' drug which actually does blot out short
term memory?

Or are we supposed to assume that their knowledge of chemistry
lags behind our own?

Conversely, if ET is genuinely concerned with secrecy, is it
reasonable to suppose they they'd use their use their advanced
surgical techniques on cattle but not on abductees where they
leave all sorts of scars, scoop marks, burns and blotches?

A very good question.

Of course, any ETs capable of doing this could also raise their
own cattle.
