LAST week I discussed the mysterious Cattle Mutilation Phenomenon (CMP) which is taking place in a growing number of countries – predominantly the US – and has been for decades.
Hundreds of cows, horses and other animals have been found with holes cut into their sides.
Organs have been removed and often their bodies have been completely exsanguinated [sic] or drained of blood.
In one case, a huge, mutilated bull was found inside a barn and lying upon a work bench. How the perpetrators achieved this has still not been determined.
In almost all cases there is a complete lack of footprints at the scene.
Even in fields covered with soft, gooey mud not a single footprint will be found: Just the cow, or some other animal, mutilated.
To carry out these mutilations on such a vast scale without detection dictates that the perpetrators must have access to highly trained personnel and state-of-the-art technology.
The hot money is on a high-powered laser being used to cut the animals open, although to date no one has been able to duplicate the process in a laboratory.
Like every aspect of this phenomenon, it remains a mystery, and more than one investigator has been “warned off” delving into the enigma by shady-looking men in suits.
The Cattle Mutilation Phenomenon is of the classic “Russian Doll” type; a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma. Much of the evidence suggests all-too-human culprits; the presence of mysterious, unmarked helicopters at mutilation sites, advanced but analysable surgical techniques and – in one case – a plastic bag left near the scene containing an unidentifiable gel-like substance.
However, there is also a considerable body of evidence to suggest the involvement of creatures which are not, to put it bluntly, card-carrying members of the human species.
Strange aircraft, including the entire melange of flying discs, triangles, spheres, tubes and mysterious lights, are also often seen at mutilation sites.
This, coupled with the fact that the mutilators seem able to perform feats beyond our current technological capabilities, has drawn some to the conclusion that alien intelligence is at work, and that their agenda is extremely sinister indeed.
The problem with the “government conspiracy” theory is that it is hard to work out what motive the authorities might have to carry out the mutilations.
Some investigators have suggested that it is nothing more than a long-term plan to make us all paranoid, and thereafter easier to control and manipulate. Personally, I have a foot in both camps. I’m convinced that our governments have a pretty good idea who or what is behind the phenomenon, and that they are connected with it in some way. However, I also believe it’s possible that non-human intelligences could be the main perpetrators.
Fantastical though it sounds, there is a suspicion that if other-worldly creatures are behind the attacks they might well carrying out some form of genetic experimentation – not just on cattle, but on humans.
The fact that their agenda is hidden would seem to indicate that, if we knew what it was, we may not like it one little bit.
As we near the mid-point of the second decade of the new Millennium, the Cattle Mutilation Phenomenon has become an international scandal.
I spoke to one US journalist who has written about the mystery, and he told me that he has had nightmares about it. “I’m frightened”, he admitted.
“Whoever they are, they’re doing it for a reason, and they’re prepared to invest a fortune into it. The pay-off must be really big.
“I have an awful feeling that whatever it is, we won’t find out until it’s too late.”
Well. Let’s hope not. There is some evidence that the phenomenon may just be tailing off a little, and that in some places the mutilations are not occurring as frequently as they once did. I think a lot of ranchers in the US and elsewhere will only be happy when they stop altogether.
