Mutilated cow found on a remote Wisconsin ranch

A Wisconsin rancher found a mutilated dead cow on his property on September 26, 2016. The owner of the animal is a rancher who keeps some of her cows on a different ranch owned by a neighbor. On Monday the landowner saw birds flying around an area above a hill and wondered what they were doing but did not investigate. On Tuesday morning they went to investigate since the vultures were still in the area. The landowner found a cow in a pasture with a large section of her jaw and face cut with precision, and the tongue completely removed. The ear tag (number 51) was missing. No blood was found at the site and the ranchers could find no bullet holes or cause of death. The nose of the animal was placed in a cow pie. The location where the cow was found is at the top of a steep hill, which the witnesses found odd because it would have been difficult for anyone to access in order to perform the mutilation.

There were no flies around the animal, and although a coyote was watching nearby, it did not touch the cow. The owner of the cow called two veterinarians who refused to come out.  She called the police and filed a report, but they have not been looking into it, and said that they have no idea what happened. She called the Department of Natural Resources but has not heard back from them yet.

The witness said that the gates to the ranch are always closed and are wired up in a certain way which would be difficult to duplicate. No vehicle tracks were found, and the gates were not disturbed. The witnesses said that she is still very upset about the situation and contacted me after doing a search on the internet. She has never had anything like this happen to any of her animals.

The mutilated animal is a 4-year-old champion cow who was worth thousands of dollars. She was pregnant with two calves. The owner of the property moved the dead animal three days after it was found. No animals ate on the carcass.

The witness has about 13 cows at that location and about 200 cows at her ranch, and more cows at a third ranch that is 30 minutes away. She is concerned that something like this may happen again. The landowners, who have cows and a horse of their own, have set up outdoor cameras in hopes of catching evidence if something like this happens to another animal on their property. 

The landowners speculate that the incident may be related to extraterrestrials, while neighbors claim the incident must have something to do with a cult who wanted the tongue for some type of ritual. However, this does not explain the fact that there is no blood on the scene and that a cause of death could not be determined by the experienced ranchers. Since this is in a very remote location at least five miles from a highway, the ranchers said that there is a low possibility for anyone being in the area who does not live there.
