Authorities in Texas are baffled by a mystery involving six cows being found dead and mutilated along the same highway.
The cows were found dead along Texas State Highway OSR, near College Station, but they were spread out over three different counties. All six dead cows were also in different herds in different pastures, yet the bizarre way each of them was mutilated was eerily similar.
“Each incident occurred in different locations, pastures, and herds,” the Madison County Sheriff’s Office wrote on Facebook. “Multiple similar incidents have been reported across the United States and we are actively coordinating with other agencies to find answers.”
The Sheriff’s Office also wrote, “A straight, clean cut, with apparent precision, had been made to remove the hide around the cow’s mouth on one side, leaving the meat under the removed hide untouched. The tongue was also completely removed from the body with no blood spill.”
According to the statement from Madison County Sheriff’s Office, “The other cows were found in the same condition, lying on one side with the exposed side of their face cut along the jaw line and the tongue, once again, completely removed.”
Making the mystery even more confounding is the fact that the Sheriff’s Office reported that there were no signs of struggle, no blood spilled on the scenes, and no noticeable footprints or tire tracks in the area.
On top of that, no predators had scavenged the dead cows’ remains and were left to “decay untouched for several weeks.”
The strange nature of the cows’ deaths and mutilation led to speculation that aliens are the culprits.
Tim Doyle, lead investigator for UFO Seekers appeared on Fox News, to share his insight into the situation.
As host Jesse Watters pointed out, “Stories like this have been happening actually for decades.”
“Cattle mutilations have been going on, in depth, since the 70s,” Doyle explained.
“There was a New Mexico state police officer who investigated up to 90 cattle mutilations in New Mexico. In one of those cases, from 1976, Gabe Valdez, the police officer, found evidence of a triangular-shaped object landing near a cow. Then some kind of tripods exiting this craft. And these tripods were anywhere from 28 inches to four inches in length.
“Now Gabe said in his investigation that these tripods that exited this UFO craft followed the cow for 600 feet before the cow finally fell dead. And these tripods had little tracks that they left on the ground. Gabe returned to the same incident site for a second time and found these tracks had actually gone over his tire tracks.”
Doyle later added that the FBI investigated that incident and claimed it was “natural predators” that supposedly performed these surgical cuts, removing the body parts and doing it so cleanly that now blood was spilled. Believe it or not.
