Lianne Beyer of Reno, Nevada reported a strange event on August 20, 2022 which occurred on her property.
“Today we found this rabbit dead and beheaded (25 ft from our back door) behind our home on our golf course. No animal or human tracks AT ALL were seen around the animal and little to no blood on the fur or ground around the animal. It is so strangely placed as well. I wanted to share some pictures and video with you in the hopes of someone reaching out to us as it so fresh and bizarre. It rained here heavily the last two days, and it is like it was perfectly placed down without tracks on the soft dirt. The footprints you see are of me and my daughter looking at it. I am not usually a believer in the paranormal, but this has us completely freaked out. It reminds me so much of one of the strange animal mutilations that has occurred around the world but a smaller animal. As a side note we have tons of coyotes in our area, and this would have been immediately scavenged in my opinion, but nothing has touched it. Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you.”
The rabbit head was placed behind the body. Lianne and her husband did not touch the body or head. Three days later the head and body were missing, but no tracks could be found in the soft dirt, even though it had recently rained.
Lianne and her husband are completely baffled, and so am I. I’ve investigated multiple animal mutilations, but none like this. A predator surely would have eaten the rabbit rather than taking its head off and leaving it. And the fact that there was no blood on the ground is eerily similar to what occurs with large animal mutilations that remain unexplained.
