Cattle Mutilations on the Rise Again

Sudden deaths concern local residents

A cattleman from Maci=E1 showed his concern when he found one of
his cattle "mutilated, with perfect incisions." As reported by
Canal Once, this event is disquieting because similar cases have
been reported in the area.

Alfredo Crettaz, a cattleman from the town of Maci=E1 in the
department of Rosario del Tala, Entre Rios, was "visibly
concerned' by the strange appearance of a seven or eight month
animal found dead. "The perfect cut on the jaw is striking," he
says, alarmed, and describes that "the animal has its entire
nape of the neck peeled off, the tail completely peeled," he
stressed in the report offered by Canal Once in Paran=E1 during
the Semanario Entererriano de Noticias broadcast.

Crettaz suggested that "it wasn't possible that the animal was
sick, "because he fell in this place and what is strange is that
other creatures haven't come to feed off of it."

Cretaz found the animal during the first days of the week and
according to him, "this is the first time that this happens in
this field." The countryman made this clarification because
similar cases have been occurring in the region and cases with
similar characteristics continue to repeat over and over. In
mid-May of this year, a Hereford cow was found in Maci=E0 by
Moises Enrique, its owner. In early June 2007, Felipe Weber,
another local rancher, found a dead cow with the typical
characteristics of mutilations: extirpation of genitalia, jaw
muscles, eyes, tongue and udders. Weber had also experienced a
similar occurrence a year earlier.

"Those who have seen this do not know what it could be," said
Crettaz, looking at the animal and unable to dismiss his
amazement in the interview with the Semanario Entreterriano de
Noticias. He said that a local vet told him, after seeing
similar cases, that it could be "an instance of sudden death".
 Faced with this, Crettaz did not doubt that it could've been a
case of sudden death because "the animal fell dead and was
stayed there." He added, however, that "the animal looked
somewhat flayed - that's what doesn't make any sense."

As a farmer, he dismissed the possibility that "a red-muzzled
mouse" could've been the cause of the death.

The strange factor in mutilations are the nature of the
injuries: The cows had perfect, cauterized incisions on their
heads and bodies, their tongues and saliva glands had been
removed, and their mammary glands, rectums and large intestines
were missing.
