FBI: Cattle Mutilations

This post is mostly to preserve a record of the FBI's involvement in the cattle mutilations phenomenon. Although the post will not include all documentation, it will highlight a few pages from the files of the FBI about the phenomenon.

Thanks for the freedom of information act, many of these once classified papers, can now be obtained and/or viewed on the FBI's website.

I can remember that cattle mutilations was hot topic back in the late seventies and most of the eighties. There were numerous TV shows and a lot of news coverage about the topic. Many people, including the ranchers themselves, were very concerned about what was going on and wanted some answers. It is only natural that at some point the FBI got involved.

 Here are a few pages from the FBI's vault on the subject. This first on is a cover sheet and show the subject and the number of pages in the file.

Here is another page that is dated Dec.21, 1978. As you can see the FBI was involved, and may still be, in the cattle mutilations topic.

The above letter makes a mention of the financial lost incurred by the ranchers due to these mutilations and refers to animal deaths as mysterious killings. At one time, in the eighties, there seemed to be a new cattle mutilation every week. But when it comes to farming or ranching any loss can really effect your bottom line. Imagine, if you will, having a prize bull and coming out one morning and finding it missing. Then later you discover it in the middle of a field dead with unusual cut marks on it. No tracks of people or predators. You would be looking for answers as well.

Here is one more page from the FBI that has a profound statement in it. That statement is "I must say that the materials sent me indicates the existence of one of the strangest phenomenons in my memory."  And you know, with him working with the FBI and the government, he had seen many things but this was deemed one of the strangest.

I'm a firm believer that the government knows much more about these types mysteries. I think it is very safe to assume the government knows about UFOs, Aliens, Bigfoot and many other subjects but do not make this knowledge known to the general public. We have to dig and research own our own to get answers and clues.

Well anyways, I hope you enjoyed the post and there was many more details and stories I could have shared but I wanted this to be more of a overview on the FBI involvement.
