More 2013 Cattle Mutilations Occurring in Colorado and Missouri!

August 8, 2013 | By
Within the past few weeks we’ve had multiple animal mutilations here in Colorado and Missouri and the ranchers involved are upset and concerned for the safety of their animals. The ranches surrounding the area of these unusual animal deaths are also worried about their livestock. Could this also happen to their animals? Multiple alarming questions still remain.
Why are the same ranchers being targeted again and again when there are other ranches nearby that don’t get hit?

Who or what is doing this? And why? For what purpose? Will humans be next, or have Human Mutilations already occurred and their stories have been covered up?

Missouri mutilation:
On July 10th, 2013, I was contacted by Lyn Mitchell from Henry County, Missouri, and was informed she just had a mutilation occurrence on her ranch. This was the second mutilation on her ranch, the first one happening in December 2011. She had located me through her brother who found an article about one of my investigations on the internet from January of 2012. She asked if I could come down and investigate her mutilation case, but unfortunately she didn’t know I live in Colorado while she lives in Missouri. But not to worry… I asked her if I could contact an experienced investigator who lives near her area, and she agreed, so I asked Margie Kay from the Kansas City Missouri location to help out. Margie agreed to investigate the mutilation, so I forwarded Lyn’s information to her.

This heifer calf about 600 pounds died in December of 2011 and besides the unusual incisions shown here, the calf was also missing its tail and anal region.

On July 13th Margie Kay with fellow investigator Larry Jordan, met with the rancher and headed to the location of the mutilation. The animal had already been moved by the rancher, but both investigators were surprised to see a circular depressed area on the ground where the animal was laying. Soil samples were taken for future analysis.

The rancher stated the animal was found on July 10th, and was lying on her left side. The anal area, tongue and udder had been removed. There was evidence of bird damage, but not causing the extreme and precise cuts the rancher saw.

On July 19th, Lyn called Margie and informed her she had found another mutilated animal on her ranch, now that makes three. The rancher had called the Sheriff and veterinarian and they were on their way to the mutilation location as they spoke.

Margie and fellow investigator Larry Jordan arrived at the scene just after the veterinarian had left. The 7 year old cow was found with a cut in the front of the body between the front two legs, and the heart nearly outside of the body. All of the teats had been cut off the udder, and the tongue was cut out. There was damage to one of the eyes, but that could have been attributed to bird scavenging.

The veterinarian said there was no blood on the ground near the animal and the cuts were clean and precise. There was little blood in the chest cavity area which was unexplainable and there were no signs of predator claw or bite marks and no signs of bullet holes causing the death. This animal was estimated at about $2000.

Note: Not only do the ranchers lose what the animal is worth initially, but they also lose any future offspring the animal could have. This could estimate into the thousands of dollars of lost income to the rancher.

Colorado Mutilation:
On July 11th, 2013, I was contacted once again by rancher Miller from Trinidad, Colorado.

( Picture courtesy Sally Miller )

Rancher Miller found this 4 year old Red Angus, laying awkwardly on a side of a sloped hill. The carcass was a couple of days old when Miller found it when his herd count was off by one.
- Animal weight was 1000 pounds plus
- Animal had a calf 2 months before and was still nursing. The calf was found healthy near the herd
- Anal area was cored out
- The hide on the jaw was skinned back
- Broken front and rear legs as if fractured from being dropped
- Right missing ear

Rancher’s personal thoughts:
The animal appeared to have been dropped from the sky near the ledge of a small sloping hill. The body was twisted and limbs broken with no signs of predator take-down damage or blood on the ground. Rancher Miller monitors all the cows with young calves to insure they’re healthy and can properly nurse their young. This particular animal was completely healthy showing no signs of sickness or ailments of any kind. It was unusual to see the calf without its mother, generally they stay close together especially when the calf is nursing.

Note: The average cow this size has 4.4 gallons of blood, if a predator possibly a mountain lion or bear attacked it, there would be signs of blood everywhere. Like all authentic mutilation cases, there is never any signs of blood on the ground or on the hide. There is never any signs of struggling or claw or bite marks, just a dead animal with unusual circumstances.

This lack of evidence mimics what the veterinarian saw in the Missouri case mentioned above.

A very special thanks to rancher Miller for contacting me about this mutilation, the more investigations I do, the more I learn and the more evidence I can acquire to be able to “crack” these cases and find the truth behind them.

Also a very special thank you to Lyn Mitchell from Missouri for contacting me initially about her second mutilation case which enabled me to contact Margie to investigate it.

And a very special ”thumbs up” to Margie Kay and Larry Jordan for “stepping up to the plate” and sacrificing their time to run two separate animal mutilation investigations within a very short time frame. Animal mutilation investigations are not intended for every investigator to do, it needs a special type of person with specially trained skills to properly push the boundaries on animal mute cases. Margie has “stepped up” before on other cases showing extreme professionalism while acquiring the unusual evidence which is needed to further understand these strange phenomenons. I’m lucky to know her and we’re all lucky she’s out there fighting the good fight for all of us.

Ranchers who go the extra mile contacting investigators like me and Margie to run our investigations along with law enforcement on their animal deaths, seem to know it takes more than conventional thinking to figure this out. Law enforcement investigators are only experienced in finding human evidence and some with added schooling, have been trained to look for natural predator evidence. But what about these cases? Law enforcement can only determine if evidence of human or natural predators are involved, but what about the unknown? Well.. that’s where we come in.

Oh, and for those of you who are keeping track or keeping score, the animal in Colorado was located within the 37 degree latitude lay-line and the Missouri case was just outside 37 degree latitude inside the 38. Hmmmm

Mutilations: Aliens? The Pueblo Chieftain, Pueblo, Colorado

TRINIDAD — At first, rancher Tom Miller thought the savagery wrought on his cattle was a cruel joke. Mutilated cows and calfs. Field-dressed and missing ears, organs and eyes. Carcasses devoid of blood.

A second-generation rancher, it wasn’t until 1999 that Miller said he started looking at the animal deaths differently, not as the product of twisted mischief or the feeding scraps of predators.
“At first I thought it was a prank, but there were no tracks, no blood. It looks like the carcass is pealed off, and it happens overnight,” Miller said.

“There are just so many things that happen that doesn’t seem like it’s human. I know people think you’re crazy, but there are so many things people can’t explain.”
Since ‘99, six cows and calfs have been mutilated on Miller’s ranch northeast of here. Two calfs were mutilated in May and the day after meeting with a Chieftain reporter and photographer this week, he found another mutilated cow on his property.

Miller thinks the seventh death happened in the last week.

Chuck Zukowski has been investigating UFO sightings, paranormal cases and animal mutilations throughout the United States for 28 years.

A California native who lives in Colorado Springs where he makes his living designing microchips, Zukowski has investigated at least 24 mutilation cases in Trinidad and Southern Colorado. In his cases, he’s found little evidence to suggest human intervention or natural predators.
“You don’t see any predator markings at all — bite marks, claw marks — and if you did, it would be a clear giveaway,” Zukowski, a former volunteer sheriff’s deputy said. “I don’t see blood stains on the hides, which is ridiculous. Completely devoid of blood. Why would an animal carve and cut a perfectly round circle on one side of a head? Why would a scavenger do that? The lack of blood, unusual cuts, and there’s no human evidence there — no foot prints, no tire marks.”

Not everyone subscribes to the thought of extraterrestrial life. For some ranchers in the San Luis Valley they believe the deaths to be the work of the blood-thirsty “Chupacabra,” a creature of Hispanic lore that preys on livestock.

Zukowski said some ranchers have seen black military helicopters hover over their cattle and later find a mutilated carcass.

Some may think Satanic cults are to blame, or such was the case in some of the earliest publicized mutilation cases in the ‘60s and ‘70s.

Whatever the thought or theory, mutilations continue to happen and the culprit(s) remain at large. And Zukowski, who volunteers his time to investigate, has linked commonalities that he says points to aliens.

“I believe, without a doubt, that there is life outside of the planet,” he said, adding that the mutilators are “a highly intelligent predator.”

“In the cases I investigate, there’s no signs the animal struggled. In some cases, it looks like (the animal) was dropped there,” said Zukowski, whose investigations can be found on his website,

He’s found animals inside a depressed ring and in one out-of-state case, found a mutilated animal inside a fresh crop circle.

Zukowski collects soil both inside and out of the rings and has the samples tested at Colorado State University-Fort Collins.

“I’m seeing some kind of nutrients being altered in the soil. The soil inside the depressions are less soluble than outside the ring.”

In one of the May cases at Miller’s ranch, Zukowski said he picked up high radiation readings around a carcass found beside a tree.

Above the carcass, Zukowski said, he found broken limbs in the tree, which leads him to think the animal was dropped from above.

“I had some unusual radiation readings in a field at Tom Miller’s place, and you could see where branches were broken where the carcass was found,” he said.

While some ranchers may be scared, Miller said he’s not, only more concerned for his herd. Years of drought have taken a toll and, looking down at the remains of a mutilated calf, he says: “That could’ve been $800.”

After staring at the carcass for a minute, Miller looked up: “There’s just so many questions no one can answer.”

July 29th, 2013 Cattle Mutilation in Colorado

By Chuck Zukowski

The morning of Tuesday, July 30th 2013, I was contacted again by rancher Miller from Trinidad, Colorado and was informed he found another mutilated animal on his ranch. This time it was a 5 day old Red Angus calf located alone in an adjacent field at least 200 yards away from the rest of the herd. This is the rancher’s seventh mutilation overall and the fourth this year.

The rancher monitors all the new calves on a daily basis until they are a couple of weeks old when he knows they’re healthy enough not to be watched. The morning of the 30th, his count was down by one, so he started looking around the area where the herd was that morning and noticed the mother standing alone outside the herd staring off in the distance. This puzzled the rancher, so he started walking in the direction the mother was looking towards, and eventually found her calf.

The dead calf was laying by itself showing no signs of struggling and no signs of blood on the ground or on the hide. The carcass was facing towards the East and appeared as if it was placed there and with no signs of drag marks or entrails nearby. Not quite sure at this time why most of my animals are facing east when the ranchers find them, but I have a couple of theories I can’t share at this time.

The only unknown damage to the animal was a four-inch hole in the anal area. Once again no blood was seen on the hide or on the ground near the animal. After briefly speaking to rancher Miller over the phone from Colorado Springs, I made the decision to drive to Trinidad that day in hopes this animal would be a good specimen for a lab necropsy. The doctors at Colorado State University Veterinary Lab had told me the best specimen for a lab necropsy would be a carcase less than 24 hours old, this animal seemed to fit that requirement. So off I went leaving work early, driving by my house to pick up my field kits, and start my 2 hour drive to rancher Miller’s house near Trinidad.

I arrived around 3:30pm and the rancher and I drove off to the site where the animal was found. I asked him if it was common for a calf to be separated from its mother at that young age, and the rancher said no. The mother is very protective and will fight off coyotes when her calf is in danger. The most common time a coyote or pack of coyotes will kill a calf is when the mother is actually delivering her calf. As the calf is being born, the coyotes take advantage of the mother’s inability to fight during the birth, and they’ll literally grab the calf as it’s exiting the birth canal. Due to the stress of birthing, the mother is unable to get up fast enough to protect her young. But when the calf is up on all fours, the mother keeps it close to her and near the herd for protection.

One question kept haunting me over and over again. Why was the mother so far from her calf and afraid to approach it? Generally if the mother’s calf is dead due to natural causes, she’ll stay by its side restless while bellowing. This was not the case, the mother was afraid to go near her calf and stayed close to the herd, yet she was compelled to have her eyes focused on the location her calf was laying. This is very strange.

After examining the carcass of the calf and the location it was found, the decision was made to take the long journey to Fort Collins and deliver the calf to the lab. Because this was the rancher’s seventh mutilation, I needed to be sure the animal didn’t die of natural causes. So off I drove with the calf in the back of my truck and started my 4 hour drive to university.

At 10:30pm, I arrived at Colorado State University lab in Fort Collins. Luckily for me the lab has a 24 hour drop off time to bring in animals. This is one of the reasons I picked this lab, and the other main reason is, it’s also the best veterinary lab in the state of Colorado. That is a biggie! After dropping off the animal to the late night attendant and filling out the proper paper work, I started my 2 hour drive back home to Colorado Springs arriving around 1:30am. What a day.
The next day at 2:30pm July 31st, I got a call from the lab doctor (name on file) and we discussed his findings while I asked other questions.

He saw the tongue was missing and the edge of the unknown cut was jagged. I asked him if he had ever seen this before, and he said no, that it appeared a little odd.
He saw the complete digestive track was missing from the stomach to the intestines including one of the kidneys. It looked as if they were all pulled out through a 10cm hole in the anal area. I asked him if this was common of what scavengers do, and once again he said he’s never seen this before and thought it was odd too!
There was no blood in the heart, but that could have been due to time of death when the heart was contracted.
Part of the lungs were inflated which meant the animal was alive and healthy at one time.
There was a 10cm hole in the anal area, the rectum was gone, and there was no blood around that area.
The pelvis was protruding through the 10cm hole.
Both eyes appeared to have been pecked out by birds. (This is common and was once a misconception of a standard mutilation.)
No predator or scavenger bites were located anywhere on the carcass.
Signs of maggets and larva were noticable. ( Larva eggs hatch within 24 hours so this carcass would have been older than 24 hours and probably closer to 30.
No excess amount of blood was found in the cavity of the carcass. (Generally a calf will have over 1 liter of blood.)
No cause of death determined.

Once thing that bothered me about the death was the noticeable lack of hemorrhaging and the lack of blood in the heart. If there were no noticeable signs of hemorrhaging, would this account for the lack of blood in the heart? If the heart was still pumping when the calf died, there should be signs of hemorrhaging. The calf could have pumped all the blood out of the heart on its last breath, then a scavenger could have come in later, but pull the complete digestive track out? Pull the tongue out? If this was a common trait with scavenger feeding, then the lab doctor wouldn’t have said he’s never seen that before.

Note: The lab doctor’s findings on the official report reflect just the necropsy lab results based on what they observed. It states what they found during the necropsy but not necessarily what’s missing. As professionals they won’t give their opinions officially because as scientists they must stay neutral in their work. Even though the doctor stated he had not seen certain characteristics in this animal compared to other animals in his career, we still have to leave the possibility open to natural scavenger causes for science’s sake.

The area in the field where the carcass was found showed slight signs of a possible anomaly on the terrain. I took soil samples which were sent out for analysis. At the time of this blog, the soil results are not available probably due to a possible back log of work at the lab. We’ve had some major weather issues here in Colorado lately.
The following is the official necropsy results from the university, any differences between the official report and my conversation with the lab doctor are due to added questions I asked after the report was filed. All expenses were paid by me, and I never charge the ranchers for my time in any of my investigations.

A neonatal bull calf was submitted for necropsy examination. The soft horn (slipper) was partially present on the front hooves. The carcass was severely autolyzed with marked subcutaneous and intramuscular emphysema. The eyes were bilaterally absent. The hair coat was extensively covered with maggot eggs and larvae. Maggot eggs and larvae were present in the oral cavity and in and around the rectum. The rostral two thirds of the tongue was absent and the remaining margins were jagged. No hemorrhage was observed at the edge of the remaining tongue. There was an approximately 10 cm in diameter hole around the regions of the rectum with irregular margins and no associated hemorrhage. The pelvis was partially extruded through the defect in the rectum. The skeletal muscle around the right femur was absent and there was no associated hemorrhage. The only abdominal viscera observed were the liver, left kidney, and a portion of the
abomasum. No significant lesions were observed in the thoracic or abdominal viscera.

Opinions About Cattle Mutilations

By Margie Kay
Cattle at a ranch in Rich Hill, Missouri by Margie Kay
Director, Quest Investigation Group

There are many opinions regarding the reasons cattle and other animals are being mutilated. Here I present some of the more plausable theories. 

1.) In his article "Eleven Government Cover-ups and Probable Reasons" posted in 2002 at by Donald M. Ware, nuclear engineer and Eastern Regional Director of MUFON, 1989-1993 states that "Cattle Mutilations.  In addition to vast amounts of blood that are occasionally removed from cattle, the tongue, half the lip, and tissues around the orifices are usually taken.  Cattle blood is close enough to human blood to be used by our military for transfusions when needed.  A doctor familiar with the mutilations told me that tissues around the orifices are high in the amino acids needed for new tissue growth.  Together you can make the large amounts of hybrid fetus formula needed for Homo alterios spacialis while in the artificial wombs.  An investigator friend told me that there is a cattle ranch in Ohio where such products of young cattle are trucked to Area 51 regularly.  Perhaps cattle from various ranges are occasionally used to balance supply and demand.  Dr. Greer told me that the lips and tongue are used to determine the effect of pollution on grasses in various locations.  Reasons:  Knowledge of the hybridization program is highly sensitive and is hidden from people not seeking it for reasons mentioned above.  “Cattle mutilations” are not so scary when you realize they are feeding our babies."

2.) Some abductees have reported seeing rather strange scenes on alien craft that may account for the entire udder missing in some cases.  Several abductees have told me that they saw cow udders being used as makeshift wombs to hold what they suspected were alien/human hybrids fetus'. If only one person had mentioned this I wouldn't have paid much attention, but several people who had no knowledge of each other told me the same thing when relating their experiences.  

3.) I remote-viewed one cow mutilation recently and was able to get a glimpse of approximately 10 minutes of an event.  There was a large craft of some type, a cow was tethered at the ankles and pulled up into the craft, the door closed on the bottom, and two strange alien-looking beings began to work very quickly on the animal, which appeared to be stunned but not deceased.  A cut was made in the hide in the chest area, and a long stainless steel hose with a narrow end was placed over one of the arteries near the heart, which then removed all or most of the blood from the animal.  Why do they need bovine blood?  Do they use it for a food supply or for medical reasons for humans or aliens? 

Whatever the reasons are, it is clear that whoever or whatever is doing this has been doing it for at least 40 years worldwide. There must be a cover-up due to the large amount of occurrences with no explanation coming from anyone.  When a farmer or rancher brings their plight to the media, they often get ridiculed, so don't report any events that occur later.  When a rancher complains to authorities and is persistent, he is often not only ridiculed, but seriously harassed, as in cases of multiple mutilations on large ranches.  What do the governments of the world know about this, and are they the perpetrators, perhaps using an alien cover-up?  Or are aliens really doing this and our governments have no control over it?

Date of event: 9/6/2013
Time: Between 3:00 a.m and 8:00 a.m.
Location: 200-acre ranch in Gasconade County, Missouri
Witnesses: Anonymous - Engineer and rancher, and his father
Weather: 73 degrees, Clear, Wind 5.8mph from the South
Investigator: Margie Kay ( 

Note: All but one photo has been omitted due to their graphic nature.

The witness contacted me on 9/10/2013 after finding our website  He found a 6-year old healthy Black Angus cow who was pregnant- dead on the morning of the 6th at 9:00 a.m.  He had gone to his ranch to check on his cattle as he normally does every day when he noticed that the entire herd was standing in a circle looking at something.  He approached, the herd dispersed, and he saw a cow lying on the ground with her head facing east and her legs pointing North.  The animal was still warm to the touch, the blood had not clotted, and rigor had not set in yet, so he estimated that the animal had been dead only four to six hours.  The witness said that it is not normal to find a cow dead of natural causes with all four legs pointing straight.

The witness then called the Gasconade County Sheriff, who sent a deputy to the location to take a report.  The deputy said that the cow obviously did not die of natural causes but could offer no explanation.

MUTILATION: The rancher took photos of the animal, then checked and found that the tongue had been cut out below the esophagus, which he said would be very difficult to do even for a trained person.  He searched for bullet holes but found none, and then skinned the skull area in order to determine if there was a bullet hole but found none, nor was there a hole in the neck.  Two teats were cut off, and a large section of the head around the jaw was removed with hide, muscle, and tissue gone, including the gums, and very little blood was found on the site.  He could find no scratches or cut marks on the bone.  There was also a cut out section in the vaginal area.  The witness, who has veterinary training and worked in a meat packing plant when he was younger, said that the cuts were made with surgical precision and that there should have been much more blood on the scene. 

There were no signs of a struggle as if the animal thrashed around, however, there is a circular flattened area in the area immediately surrounding the cow. 

NO ANIMALS OR BUZZARDS HAVE EATEN ON THE COW TO DATE (9-11-2013).  The rancher knows there are cougars, coyotes and buzzards on the property but none have touched the mutilated cow, which is not normal.

DEAD LARVAE: The rancher found dead blow fly larvae falling off of the cow.  I told him this indicated possible contamination and to be very careful.  As of the 10th there were no maggots, but on the 11th there were.

CALF: The cow's 300lb. calf, who had been milking, has now suddenly become blind.  There is no indication of pink eye or other health problems.  They may take a blood sample of the calf.

HELICOPTER: On Sunday the 8th, the witness was in his barn while feeding the steers and heard a loud racket outside above the barn.  When he went outside a very low flying helicopter with no visible markings was flying over his property.  He thought it odd that the rotor on the craft was about 10' above the body and it did not look normal.  This is the first time a helicopter has flown low over his property (approx 100' or less). Ft. Leonard Wood is nearby and he often sees aircraft but this was unusual.
On the 10th the rancher noticed a very horrible smell from the gate of the ranch, which is the only entrance to the property and is located 1/2 mile from the location of the mutilated cow.  The smell was more like a dead human than a dead cow.  This has now dissipated.

This is the first time anything like this has happened as far as his ranch is concerned, and the first time his father has seen anything like this.  They have both been ranchers their entire lives. The witness is 65 years of age and his father is in his 80s.  However, the witness stated that a calf was found dead on the property two weeks prior after seeing buzzards flying around, and that he did not examine the animal at the time due to its severe state of decomposition but now wonders if it was also mutilated.

The witness asked his neighbors who live near the ranch if they saw anything unusual but they did not.

This case is still under investigation.
