Re: Animal Mutilation-Aliens?
I can speak on this a little. On the occasion that I have a dead cow, we have to compost them. In the old days people came and picked them up for rendering, now the law says they must be taken to a sanitary landfill, incinerated, buried, or composted. Depending on weather, time of day, things can get a little icky. The cow in the picture is 24+/- hours dead.
I suspect predators did most of the damage, to already dead animals. I have seen where coyotes will eat all the soft tissue that that they can get a hold of. Which in the case of a dead cow is the tongue, nose, ears, eyes, udder, and reproductive/waste organs. As for missing internal organs, I suspect nefarious human intervention, or the cows have been dead longer than 24 hours and ruptured due to the build of gas as part of the decomposition process. Predators then were able to gain access to soft internal organs.
Or it was Aliens, who are obsessed with screwing with random cows on earth. I would guess that aliens use cows for teaching young aliens, in much the same way we use earthworms and frogs in biology.
Whenever you get mad over a called strike or ball on a close pitch, it's the equivalent of being mad at the QB pump-faking one time before throwing a pass in your average NFL game. ---Caveat Emperor
