22 Strange Commonalities Among Animal Mutilation Cases

After studying the subject for some time now, I've discovered that there are a number of commonalities among animal mutilation cases that are worth noting and that any serious researcher of the subject should look for.

Animal mutilations came to public light in the 1960's when ranchers began to report to the local police and FBI, and the media picked this up.  This phenomena occurs not only in the United States, but worldwide. Many mutilation files were released by the FBI and are now available to researchers, although these are all older cases, with no new cases released.  One has to wonder why the later cases have not been released yet, unless as some people theorize, there is a cover-up regarding this subject.

The media seemed to grab on to the idea early on that cults were doing the mutilating, although to date there has never been any proof of that.  Additionally, some reporters and websites state that most or all of the cases can be explained by natural predators, which is preposterous given the facts.

Following are some of the common traits that are found at mutilation sites:
1. Little or no bodily fluids on site, on the ground or on or in the animal, even when found soon after the mutilation occurred.  Where has the blood gone?  How were the wounds made without any loss of blood?
2. Precise, surgical cuts, or laser-like cuts found, not torn hide or bite marks from predators. (We only look at fresh cuts, not old ones because as the animal bloats the cuts will stretch and make it look very straight)
3. The head of the animal is found facing east in a large number of cases.  (This is just an observation, no explanation has been found.) 
4. Similar organs missing on each of the mutilated animals: usually the udder or parts of the udder, the vaginal area, the tongue, anal area, and cheek which may include the jaw, and sometimes the lips or eyes. No marks are found on the bones, which would normally be found if the cuts had been made by a knife or other instrument.
5. In some cases marks on the legs or body are found as if the animal has been trussed and lifted with a rope or chain.
6.  Extremely fast decomposition of the body, faster than if the animal died from natural causes,or in some cases, slow decomposition.
7.  A "human-like" rather than a "dead animal" death smell has been reported in some instances.
8. Dead blow flies on the animal and on the ground.  What is killing them?
9. Lack of any sign of predators such as coyotes or vultures eating on the dead carcass as would be expected in a death from natural causes. In some cases animals never eat on the carcass, even though it is known that vultures and coyotes are in the area.
10. In some cases a dark black outline is left on the grass surrounding the animal which appears to be a burn mark of some kind.
11. Lab testing shows a change in the soil in some cases- something makes it non-water soluble, meaning that it has been exposed to very high temperatures. Soil testing outside the area shows no change to the soil.
12. In the rare event that an autopsy is performed internal organs or a fetus may be missing.
13. When mutilations occur in one area, they often occur in another, then months may go by with no reports.  Oddly, Chuck Zukowski and I have found that many of these events occur ON THE SAME LATITUDE.
14. Often a circular depression is found on the ground or grass in the immediate vicinity of the animal. Some of the grasses have been lab tested (W.C. Leavengood, biophysicist, did testing and wrote reports on this - he found grasses had been chemically altered -see my next article).
15. Often a depression just under the dead animal, and only in that location, up to 3" deep, indicating that the animal was dropped from above.
16. Broken ribs on the animal on the side facing the ground (usually only visible after decomposition or an autopsy is performed.) Again indicating a drop from above.
17. Rarely are any thrashing marks left on the ground around the animal (I know of only one) indicating that the animals were killed somewhere else and deposited in a different location.
18. Farmers and ranchers who report cases to the local authorities are on rare occasions, harassed and threatened.  This usually occurs in countries outside the U.S.  (I am working on several cases in other countries and will submit articles on these later.)
19. Investigators and ranchers often report low-flying aircraft over the mutilation site such as black helicopters with no markings and military planes.  When this occurs in an area that is not known for such activity such as ranches located near air bases, what is the explanation?  
20. Low EMF readings are often detected inside the mutilation area on the ground, but not outside the area.
21. In all cases to date, there are NO TRACKS found from human footprints, ATV's, Trucks, or any type of vehicle near the dead animal.
22. When gates are locked by the rancher, they are not found unlocked and there is no sign of trespass.

The Animal Mutilation Investigation and Research organization requests that researchers and witnesses to the phenomena report cases to this site in an effort to collect as much data as possible in an effort to solve the mystery.
