SAN LUIS, Colo. — A creepy string of calf mutilations in southern Colorado has a rancher and sheriff's officials mystified.

Four calves were found dead in a pasture just north of the New Mexico state line in recent weeks. The dead calves had their skins peeled back and organs cleared from the rib cage. One calf had its tongue removed.

But rancher Manuel Sanchez has found no signs of human attackers, such as footprints or ATV tracks. And there are no signs of an animal attack by a coyote or mountain lion. Usually predators leave pools of blood or drag marks from carrying away the livestock.

Two officers from the Costilla County Sheriff's Office have investigated the mutilations but say they don't know what's killing the calves.

"There's nothing really to go by," said Sanchez, who's ranched for nearly 50 years. "I can't figure it out."

A spokesman for the sheriff's office told The Pueblo Chieftain that investigators doubt a person butchered the calves because there is no blood at the scene.

"I've butchered a cow before and I know what kind of a mess it leaves," Sgt. James Chavez said.

Some in the area believe the mutilations are the work of aliens. An area UFO chaser, Chuck Zukowski of Colorado Springs, has been to the Costilla County pasture to investigate.

He told the paper there have been other unexplained calf mutilations in the area, including three in March. One of the other calves, found dead on a ranch near Trinidad, had its ears removed, Zukowski said.

"We're trying as much as we can to find a pattern," said Zukowski, who runs a UFO Web site called ufonut.com.

Sanchez said he has sold off his 32 remaining calves out of fear more would be mutilated. He hasn't decided how he'll manage the remaining 40 animals in his herd.

"It's a big loss for a small rancher," he said.

I found this (as you can see) in the columbian newspaper sep 30th 1894. Im not quite sure which category to post in as mystery beasts are mentioned but could this be an early case of cattle mutilation?

38 out of 60 calves killed (even over a period of months) seems off-pattern for cattle mutation...?

It's been quiet on the cattle mutilations for a while - not any more:

Quote:
Missouri farmer finds third cow with bizarrely mutilated genitals and missing organs.


A Missouri rancher has now found three of her cows mutilated in bizarre and unusual ways and she’s not ruling out the possibility that aliens are behind the gruesome acts.

Lyn Mitchell of Henry County, Missouri says the first example occurred back in 2011. That cow had its tongue completely excised, along with one of its ears.

She assumed teenagers were to blame. But after she found two more cows with mutilated genitals and missing organs on her farm just this summer, she now believes something harder to explain could be to blame and local police agree with her.

On July 9, Mitchell found one of her best cows dead in her field. She first noticed its tongue was missing, which was appalling enough.

But she then realized the cow’s udders, anus, reproductive organs, and ears had all been removed.

About two weeks later, it happened again. Though she hadn’t called a veterinarian to inspect the first two cows, she did get one in to see the third.

Don't know if this was mentioned earlier in this long thread. First modern incidence of anomalous animal mutilation is pretty suspicious:
http://books.google.com/books?id=iczSBcAUC5oC&pg=PA81&dq=cattle+tongues+missing&hl=en&output=html_text&sa=X&ei=QeHNUt7CB4b4oASOt4HoAg&ved=0CC4Q6AEwAA

At the peak of a UFO wave, of course:

I can't tell how much of this is fiction or collected tales, but take a look lower on the page where strange lights are mentioned in connection with missing cattle and even children:
http://books.google.com/books?id=kDUWAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA60&dq=strange+%22missing+cattle%22&hl=en&sa=X&ei=3f_NUt6LEM3aoATh9IHIDg&ved=0CEcQ6AEwBA
Okay, this appears to be a work of fiction.
