Cattle Mutilations are known as bovine excision, this subject refers mainly to cattle but other livestock and wild animals have been reported with similar conditions that would put them in this bracket, Often the animals put into this bracket have died with trauma that seems unusual such as missing organs or lack of blood.

In 1606 a case was recorded and is perhaps the first for this subject, it refers to sheep. It is recorded in the records of James I of England and records sheep had been slaughtered in London and around the shires nearby. It records how nothing but their tallow and some internal parts were missing, some conjecture was also made that fireworks could have been involved. Stalking the Herd: Unraveling the Cattle Mutilation Mystery – Christopher O’Brien is the source, via Wikipedia it is also noted that Charles Fort collected cases between the 19th and 20th Century.

9th September, 1967 saw Agnes King and her son, Harry, found their dead horse, Lady, who was only three years old. The horse had been skinned, de-fleshed and some cuts that king felt looked very precisely aimed. They noted that there was a medicinal smell, there was no blood on the scene and at the time the cause of death was not determined. “No Earthly Cause” and the press for some reason put it down as Snippy, not Lady. Snippy was a sire and you can go visit the website, snippy.com which goes into more detail. There are also comments on there about how it could be naturally explained so you can investigate a little more if you wish.

1975 saw a Democratic senator Floyd K Haskell approach the FBI to ask for help due to public concern over mutilations. His claim was that there had been 130 cases of animal mutilations in Colorado alone, there was further public concern that another 9 states reported more of them, the details can be found at the FBI Vault and again if you want to read up, you should. The FBI indicated that overall 8,000 mutilations in Colorado cost around a million dollars in damage.

In 1979, Sheriff Herb Marshall of Arkansas, USA, dealt with the event in Washington County, a little differently. Having gained a fresh cow corpse, he left it in a field and then watched it, for 48 hours he had it watched. It was observed that a series of natural events and entomology on a basic level provided them with similar results. The cow split open from gasses and flies/maggots would eat away at eyes, hips, anus and accessible soft tissue. It felt like it was case closed to Marshall. A Canadian study ten years later added natural scavengers to the list but pretty much agreed with his summons.

So, what should we be looking for in these cases? Well often it will appear that the animal has been drained of blood or there is no sign of blood in the area around their wounds. George E Onet, a doctor of veterinary microbiology, investigated and concluded that in these cases predatory animals would avoid the beast for several days after the death. He also observed that domestic animals would be ‘visibly agitated’ or even ‘fearful’ of that carcass.

Dr Howard Burgess, recorded the average ages were between four and five years old, 90% of his cases fit that range, this would put Lady out of that range.  (Alien Contact: top-secret UFO files revealed, Good Timothy).

Lady does fit the bill for the lack of tracks and any clues around the body. They noted that there were strange puncture holes in the ground and in Rio Arriba County, New Mexico, 1976 found those as well. The conclusion was that the indentations came from a tripod. I found no conclusion about why these marks were involved.

Some, but not all, animals have shown either unusually high or low vitamins or minerals in their tissue samples. The samples were of chemicals not normally found in the animals either.

It seems to be that lab reports feedback some interesting points too, as an example it seems the time of death and decay were hard to pinpoint, just the knowledge of when the animal was last visibly seen then up until their discovery, again reference to this is in the FBI documents released.

1978 New Mexico, the death of an 11-month-old bill was found with what might be considered as classic signs. They sent samples off for testing and gave no conclusions or investigation why the heart was an unusual colour or texture, the second lab concluded did find the liver was devoid of copper and had four times the usual level of zing, potassium, and phosphorus but could not explain how or why it may have occurred.

In this case they had blood samples from the scene it was pink in colour and did not lot after several days. There was a note that the flesh was very brittle for an animal that had been dead around 5 hours and the flesh underneath was discoloured.

I also found a more recent case in Trinidad, Colorado, USA about cattle mutilations on Tom Millars farm and an investigator called Chuck Zukowski. Zukowski indeed the missing udders, tongue and that on one bovine the rib cage was separated from the back bone from a very serious impact. There had been two cows, one dead with the trauma already mentioned and a second one that had internal injuries, the injuries led to the animal being put down.

Both had gone missing and were then recovered in their state but the rancher noted the gully was not deep enough to have injured the animals that way, the deaths did not resemble animal attacks and could not see the dead animals condition being a result of scavengers either.

I found nearly all references related to sources for cases in the USA which makes me wonder, do aliens only want to test cows from there? Well no but it seems the phenomenon isn’t entirely all theirs and I did start with that London note.

Nick Redfern wrote a book which includes a 1985 case from Cannock Chase, it seems he found other animal mutilations I his book were quite often linked to occult sacrifice but he found one that might suggest something else. It was in the autumn that year and around 8,30pm, father and son were crossing a fairly large area of woodland to collect a motorbike. Driving along they went around a bend, coming to an area that had once been used by the military, about 100 feet away and up in the air was a large black triangular object with three lights on the underside.

The two men got out to look closer, reminder this is before smart-phones, and the object flew off without warning – prompting the man to race off and then once back in their car they raced home to Rugeley. They reported it to the police and the matter was going to rest there but then nearby in Penkridge a man was out in the early hours of the morning for a ‘duck-shoot’ and saw an object that flashed down a light beam towards a herd of cows in a nearby field.

The man was astonished to see that the beam aimed at them and he ran to his car to get his friend. The two ran back but the cows were fine and neither saw the strange object, had he witnessed and interrupted a cattle mutilation attempt?

So how/what causes this phenomenon and can it all be explained away?

The FBI had come under pressure to explain it and opened up ‘Operation Animal Mutilation’ in May, 1979. Rommel’s report was 297 pages long and cost $45,000 which centralised on the New Mexico events. It concluded that many of the results could be explained as a natural phenomenon. The report did conclude that some of the anomalies could not be concluded. Rommel conclude that the answer was down to normal predator and scavenger activity.

An ATF investigation concluded another investigation in New Mexico, they found some evidence that there were animals that had been tranquilised and treated with anti-coagulant but could not find out who was responsible or any motives.

So, if it is not natural or caused by humans who seem cruel what else can it be?

It it’s not just about cruelty but down to humans could it be cult activity? It suggests that the acts would be planned and the theory is supported by the idea that there is a lack of blood at the sites, the organs may have been removed for ritual needs and some think that they may even be aiming for some cattle with unborn they could extract.

At the height of this period during the 1970’s and 1980’s there was reason to attribute some of them to this, Jonestown and People’s Temple were in the news and TV evangelist Bob Larson spoke on his programmes to raise public awareness about it, no doubt adding fuel to the fire.

This was harder to investigate when so many animals were too far decayed to look at or had been given a natural cause of death for the cow’s demise.

There has also been rumour about government involvement with one going back to the 1985 case at Cannock Chase, already mentioned, the idea of it being that they might be testing an aircraft, or perhaps, as some might think, they may be testing diseases or viruses they might want to test about when they came into contact with human beings. I was unable to find more information that I could summarise with, there is a lot of information to wade through, can you help with anything you might know about this? Any reported illnesses or cases of this I can look at about humans getting sick after handling cattle mutilation cases?

In regards to another theory – Aliens/UFO involvement and that other worldly investigations are/have been conducted. It is the idea that they may be using them to gather information on living beings. A hypothesis exists that the UFO’s can collect the animals, investigate on their ships and then deposit the remains back down or conduct them very swiftly and leave with the parts they need for further analysis.

Other theories are that creatures like the Chupacabra might be involved. There are, simply put, a varying number of explanations and some might feel more reasonable over others but also that comes down to personal belief or experience.

TRIGGER WARNING

A quick search online will give you plenty of information but to give you a summary and because it is probably flitting to the nature of my blog, I am going to summaries this one.

López was born in Uruguay and the family moved to the USA where the seemingly easy, good-natured López grew up. He was regarded as a fairly nice person who had a dew male friends but never had a girlfriend or seemed to hold friendships with women. López dropped out of high school but didn’t pursue any of his artistic talents due to fears of being rejected by any schools and fearing that he was inadequate.

By 18 years of age he was a social recluse, he seemingly found a better place in fantasy and became enthralled by celebrities. In 1993 he became obsessed by Icelandic singer, Björk, following her career and learning everything he could about her.

At the beginning it seemed quite positive, she was a muse for him and overtime, during his 803 page diary, it showed he was losing connection with reality. His main motivation seemed to be a way to find for her to accept him as a friend nothing really suggested it was sexually motivated either. He spoke of a way to go back to the 1970’s and find her to be her friend…

Overall his diary is really an account of a terribly lonely man, he felt inadequate, ugly and unsuccessful. López’s diary referenced suicide and had fourteen mentions of murder. In it he had mentioned other celebrities but an overwhelming 408 references were made about Björk.

All-in-all up until this point I was seemingly a lonely man, obsessed with a woman he could not meet, but the story does not end there; hence me including it on the blog.

In 1996 he was living alone in Hollywood, Florida, and found an article in Entertainment Weekly about her romantic involvement with Goldie (Clifford Joseph Prince). He avidly disliked the relationship because he was a black man and felt betrayed at her having Goldie as a lover. He decides he needs to harm her because of this relationship and the feeling of betrayal.

14th January 1996 and López stopped writing his diaries, instead he moved to making video diaries instead. He made eleven tapes in total, each lasting around two hours. They were filmed within his apartment, a squalid place hat he referred to as his pigsty, he would also record the videos in various states of undress.

By the end of his series he had decided Björk must die and in his diary he states that he’s going to kill her by sending a package, he wanted to send her to hell. His intention was a letter bomb loaded with needles of HIV infected blood gained from a prostitute and abandoned his plan when he realised he could not do it, it was unfeasible.

López changed tactics, in June he began to construct a bomb in a book that was to be sent to her home, he wanted it to look like it had been posted by her record label. It was devised to spray acid in her face, to leave her disfigured.

12th September 1996 and López makes his last entry, he films his preparation of going to the post office. He is nervous but if he aroused suspicion he was going to commit suicide if they tried to detain him. He returns from the post office and resumes the entry, he has Björk’s music playing in the background and is naked in the video.

López then shaves his head and paints it with red and green paint, he colours his lips black and tells that camera that he is now nervous. Declaring that he is not depressed, or drunk, he then shoots himself with a .38 caliber pistol and slumps forwards. It looks like he was hoping that the blood would splatter on the sign behind him, “The best of me. Sept 12”, but the bullet did not exit his skill and he fell forwards.

You can find this on YouTube and other sites, I haven’t posted the link here, I don’t think it’s necessary. Watching the video, which I did, I felt quite upset because this was a man who was clearly very ill and ultimately he killed himself. You can hear the noises of his blood falling down and exiting and yes it’s real… but it’s not nice. Don’t go trying to watch it unless you know you can cope. I have warned you and accept no blame if you do.

López’s death was discovered by a maintenance worker (poor thing) on 16th September, the smell was terrible and the blood was seeping through the ceiling. The worker called the police who gained entry and found him decomposing once they gained entry. They also found a further message above the wall in black letters, “The 8mm Tapes Are A Documentation Of A Crime Terrorist Material. They Are For The F.B.I”, the apartment was then evacuated and searched for devices.

There was only one that had been constructed and it was the one he had posted, police contacted Scotland Yard and after viewing the last tape the Metropolitan Police managed to intercept the package from a South London post office. It was safely detonated.

López died not knowing that only a few days before he had shot himself Björk and Goldie has ended their relationship. Björk herself was affected by the event and did eventually respond, no doubt relieved that the thing had not been delivered and put her and her child at risk. No one that knew López had considered him dangerous either, and overall it seems that this was a man who’s mental health had degraded and was not as likely to be noticed as he had always been very secluded and kept away from people.

It started with the YouTube community and some videos abut a missing hiker, that’s how I saw it anyway. Kenny Veach had gone into the Nevada desert, he’d gone back after a series of comments bating him about going to the ‘M Cave’ and supposedly the strange feelings he’d had about being there.

North of Las Vegas, Sheep Mountains had been the location an in 2014 he went out to look at the area again. Kenny Veach usually went with his girlfriend, Sheryon Pilgrim, or went alone. He would go without GPS and seemingly seemed to come across a bit gung-ho about the whole thing and his own safety.

He pointed out on a YouTube comment (as snakebitmgee) that near the Wellis Air Force Base, he’d found a cave shaped like a capital m and it had caused his entire body to vibrate, he became to scared he left. 22nd November, 2014 a Saturday, and 3 News Las Vegas reported that they had found the man’s cellphone near a deep vertical mine shaft. The 47 year old man was meant to have come back after a two day hike but the family alerted authorities when he failed to return. Red Rock Search & Rescue Centre did not find anything more and said he may not have fallen or been down there, the area was searched again.

Kenny’s first visit had caused the fights, his second he reported on the presence of a black ram watching him from the top of a ridge. It didn’t deter him from his third trip, the self-proclaimed daredevil/cowboy took his 9mm gun and headed back that way. Some YouTube commenters had tried to deter him from going back out, the area is known to have many hazards; the terrain, animals, dehydration and how remote it is as just a little summary.

Sheryon Pilgrim (girlfriend) had even explained he was plagued by depression but had refused to seek any help, It may well have contributed to the situation as he’d taken risks that perhaps others might not.

So let’s move on to theories, did he see something around the base he should not have? Was it occult based? Did he simply succumb to the desert ravages? Or did he fake his own death to begin a new life as many struggles and depression caught up with him?

Wellis Air Force Base is one of those places that has come with conspiracy theories, secret testing facilities and hidden alien presences amongst them. The U.S government agencies are often under fire for secrecy and this is no shock, government secrecy and actions means speculation but I highly doubt he was captured or killed for seeing something as the man wasn’t trying to break onto the base.

A comment I found on one site was about how Kenny had a fascination with the occult, and that he may have known about local rumours that the cave was more than a natural occurrence. Some suggest that the cave lures people in with a macabre power; it can lure in depressed people to their deaths or a portal to another dimension. Me? I don’t think I have anything to work on here other than rumour, local lore or even retrospective speculation from others.

So this leaves two other options which are mundane explanations, I know, I blog about so many things like ghosts or oddities but here I am going for the natural ones? Hear me out though please?

Faking his death? It seems to me that this is possible but unlikely. He had certainly got friends and a family in the area but his cell-phone was found in the vicinity of the area whilst not entirely conclusive it points to someone wanting to prove a point, not to disappear and there are other comments online which leads me to think the most likely answer is below and not the most exciting.

Kenny Veach was 47 years old, suffering from untreated (and undiagnosed) depression or possibly, even another or accompanied, by another mental health disorder. A comment from his own girlfriend on YouTube also leads to come information that may assist more.

He had left home at 6am for the one hour drive out to the place, she said she thinks his depression had got worse as well due to money issues. 14 months before his disappearance he’d quit a job he had been in for 17 years and was living off his retirement money. Suicide ran in the family history and his dad had committed suicide via a gun when Kenny was in his early 20’s, he had taken his own 9mm out with him when he went on the trip.

She explained that she had found his search history and that it had contained pages on suicide. She had also said he told her that if he were to kill himself it would not be at home and so things in her mind felt sadly concluded.

I am, also sadly, inclined to believe her as the man had severe mental health issues he would not willingly address. He was not prepared to put her, and his family, through sorting out the aftermath and her comments and his actions seem to match up that way.

The search hasn’t really ended either, 3 News LV also reported that Red Rock Search & Rescue had gone out to look for another missing man but they keep an eye out on another missing cold cases when they do go that way. Kenny Veach is one of the ones on that list, the last search I saw online that might have been with that in mind was 27th April, 2019. Perhaps the answer will happen one day and I hope if the family require closure that it does.

It was quiet hard to write this one, I wanted to cover his story but I wanted to ensure I tried to remain respectful. I hope that I have.

The title meaning ‘shared psychosis’ and is a rare disorder when seemingly delusional beliefs are somehow transmitted from one person to another.

A case of this may be cited as that of Ursula and Sabina Eriksson, Swedish twin sisters, born in 1967 who were involved in strange events on the M6 motorway and the subsequent murder of Glen Hollinshead from Fenton, Staffordshire, U.K.

The women had been travelling in Ireland before they came to England, they got on a coach in Liverpool to go to London. Their behavior was odd and the coach driver would not allow them to get on again after exiting it at a service station on the M6.

Highways Agency Traffic officers were called out, the two were seen at the central reservation on the M6 and they ran across the motorway, Ursula dodged traffic but Sabina was struck and the police arrived. Shortly after they did the woman again ran out into the motorway. They now had Ursula with serious leg injuries and Sabina who was unconscious for several minutes due to head injuries. They were both treated by paramedics but both were resisting treatment.

Sabina was shouting out “they’re going to steal your organs” and “I recognize you – I know you’re not real” amongst a stream of profanities. Sabina refused to lay still and even struck a female officer before the public, police and emergency workers all managed to get her and she could be sedated and taken to hospital. Ursula stayed in hospital for several weeks.

Here is where it really seems to have fallen apart, 19th May 2008 Sabina was allowed to go. She was not given a full psychiatric evaluation and she pleaded guilty to her actions, she had been detained long enough supposedly and then headed out with her possessions in clear plastic bag, she was around Stoke-On-Trent and it was assumed she was off to rejoin her sister.

At 7pm that evening she was seen by two local men whilst they were walking a dog. Glenn Hollinshead was a 54 year old welder, he was also a qualified paramedic and former RAF worker. The other man was his best friend Peter Molloy, she seemed friendly enough as they talked but her behaviour seemed odd and so Molloy was uneasy about her.

She asked about a bed and breakfast but Hollinshead took pity on her and offered to let her stay at his place on Duke Street. She explained to them that she was trying to find her sister who had been hospitalized. At the house her strange ways continued, she offered them cigarettes and when they took them to smoke she snatched them back, saying that they were poisonous. She also had multiple phones and a laptop. Her behaviour was very paranoid and Molloy thought that maybe she was trying to flee an abusive partner.

Molloy left just before midnight, Sabina stayed for the evening and the following day he called hospitals to find Ursula. At 19:40 the next evening he borrowed tea bags from his neighbour, Frank Booth, and went back inside. A minute later he staggered back out saying that he had been stabbed by Sabina and Booth called 999.

Sabina had stabbed him five times and fled, she had murdered the person that had given her shelter for seemingly no reason at all. She had, herself, ran from the house in possession of a hammer which she hit herself over the head with and was seen by a passing motorist. The motorist was Joshua Grattage who tried to stop her, Sabina then pulled a roof tile from her pocket and hit him over the head with it. By this time the paramedics had found her and were taking chase, she then jumped 40 feet down from a bridge on to the A50, with broken ones she was finally taken to hospital.

She was arrested 6th June 2008 and charged with murder. The trial was scheduled for February 2009 and had to be adjourned as they had difficulty getting hold of her medical records from Sweden. On 2nd September 2009 Sabina plead guilty with diminished responsibility. There was never an explanation for her actions provided. Whilst seemingly sane in appearance the prosecution and defense used insanity for their case and whilst in prison she turned to Christianity. Ursula went back to Sweden and then went to the USA.

There is a suggestion that the incident was also worsened by the police arrival, the officer is there telling her that he is there to help and even with the damage to her legs Ursula was still trying to get up, she was repeatedly saying that they were not real. Once sedated it seems that Sabina was calmer and more rational, what was found out is that Ursula was the one with the history of mental illness and some wonder if that was transferred to Sabina somehow.

PCP has been put forwards as a possible explanation, a paramedic said that this is not entirely unusual behaviour for the pathology of the drug but that the case is very extreme. A urine test had a potential to pick up the drug but there is no more information for this to go by.

Sabina was released, or at least the Prisoner Location Service states there is no one of that name in custody. This is most likely to have been to protect her so she could be released quietly and resume her life.

The case was also put forwards as evidence for the super soldiers of the MK ULTRA program.

With a lack of information no more is likely to be given about the whole case, what we should remember is that a man died who may not have been if there had been a proper psychiatric evaluation.

 

Elbert County, Georgia has a large stone monument that has eight modern languages inscribed on it, with shorter messages at the top in ancient languages, Babylonian, Classical Greek, Sanskrit and Egyptian Heiroglyphs. It has also been referred to before as the American Stonehenge, and a capstone stands on the top of it making the whole thing astronomically aligned.

In 1979 an unknown person/s under the pseudonym of R C Christan (arsey Christan?) hired Elberton Granite Finishing Company to build it. In 2008 it was defaced with slogans such as “death to the New World Order” and Wired magazine called it the first serious act of vandalism against them.

The list of things inscribed are as follows: maintaining humanity to under 500,000,000 to keep in perpetual balance with nature; to guide reproduction wisely with improving fitness and diversity; to unite humanity with a living new language; ruling passion, faith, tradition and all things with tempered reason; protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts; let all nations rule internally and use a world court to resolve external disputes; avoid petty laws and useless officials; balance personal rights along with social duties; prize truth, beauty, love, seeking harmony with the infinite; don’t be a cancer on the earth, leaving room for nature.

There is a stone nearby explaining the size and dimensions etc of the stones. There is also mention of a time capsule buried under the site, but the fields there for the dates are not listed and so there is speculation that this never came into fruition.

Albert County owns the site of the stone, and the land registration says that they purchased the land October 1st, 1979. Two accounts of the unveiling say it was March 1980 in front of 100 people and another says 22nd March 1980 in front of 400. It has been praised by some as a good call for rational thinking, others have said it sounds like the commandments of the Antichrist.

Whatever they are, and whoever really was behind it might well be a mystery but the words are there and it’s a seemingly permanent feature and roadside attraction.
