Argentina: New Cattle Mutilations In La Pampa

A Report from Raul Oscar Chaves

On July 30, 2007, two beef cattle were found slain and mutilated
at the San Jorge ranch located on Provincial Route No. 28,
between rural routes 11 and 13 and between the locality of
Cuchillo Co (some 250 km south of Santa Rosa) and the Sierras de
Lihue Calel.

The mutilated cows were black Aberdeen Angus' with
missing ears, tongues, incisions to their jawbones and missing
udders. One of them was lying on its side and another on its
back; the carcasses presented signs of extreme hardness in the
limbs and hide. Upon being struck with a stick "...they sounded
hollow, like a drum..."

Witnesses to the find were Marcelino Martinez and Hector Ruiz, a
rural contractor and his employee, who were refurbishing and
building rural homes.

It should be noted that there is no rural electricity in this
region, and generators are employed for power. This circumstance
keeps the locals from having access to television or radio
(battery units excluded) and the only residents in the area are
either transient or temporary.

At midnight on the night prior to the find, Ruiz decided to go
out of the place he shares with Martinez to walk and smoke. It
was here, and unexpectedly, that he saw a bright source of light
at low altitude. It remained static "and gave out lights on all
sides - red, green, blue, yellow..."

The light, whose width was equivalent ot the length of a cattle
cage used for transporting livestock (some 10/12 meters),
according to Ruiz's comparison, vanished after a few seconds and
another smaller light appeared on the ground, but this time an
intense bright green. Within this light was "...as small being
standing some 50/70 centimeters tall, who remained
motionless...". At this point Ruiz specifies "...I cannot say if
it had a head and ears, but it was humanlike, since two legs
could be seen..." This sighting lasted only a few seconds before
the entity vanished altogether. The witness was deeply impressed
by what he had seen, and decided to go back to bed and sleep.

Subsequently, and as is customary during work breaks, Ruiz and
Martinez decided to explore the vicinity. Martinez found one of
the cows in the proximity of a cutwater; the other cow was also
found near another cutwater, both located within the rural
premises. At this point they decided to inspect the place where
Ruiz had seen the lights, some 40 meters from the place they
spent the night. On the ground they located four holes measuring
2 cm in diameter and some 20 cm distant from each other, forming
a square.

This ranch (San Jorge) was also the scene for several cases
involving cow, horse, sheep and goat mutilations between 2002
and 2004. Both Martinez and Ruiz live in General Acha, some 120
km south of Santa Rosa, stating that in the area where the
animals were found, it its quite common to see lights of various
types and colors.
