Authorities aren’t ruling out aliens in the mutilation of several cows in the rural Missouri countryside.
The attacks, which have killed cows – all female – dating back to late 2011, all bear the same forensic markers: their reproductive organs are removed; their tongues cut out; their ears severed.
It wasn’t until the third and most recent attack that a veterinarian was called to the scene to examine the bovine victim. When he did, he judged the surgical precision of the attacks too sophisticated for typical cattle-killing culprits like coyotes or violent, maladjusted “pranksters.”
Robert Hills, the Sheriff of Henry County, apparently agreed, telling a local TV station the lack of evident trauma and absence of blood and bodily fluids at the scene had opened his mind to all possibilities.
Property owner Lyn Mitchell was more assertive, telling the Mutual UFO Network (yes, there really is such a thing) she wasn’t ruling out the possibility of aliens.
