Farmers these days seem to have enough to deal with considering the increased cost of food production and the difficulty of keeping overhead at a maintainable level in order to keep from starving themselves. And if that’s not enough, there’s a host of new problems facing farmers including the new wave of cattle mutilations in Gem County, Idaho. But unlike previous cases these cattle mutilations have an interesting and disturbing twist to them.

Few believe the recent cattle mutilations have been caused by aliens. Cattle are being shot with low caliber bullets and then their organs are surgically removed as they bleed to death. The grim details of the case have Brand Inspector Lynn Gibson worried. “I don’t remember anything on this scale,” Lynn told one newspaper, “It’s usually just one incident.” The strange details of the case are reminiscent of the cattle mutilations suspected to be of a supernatural source, but are fairly obviously done by human hands. But why? Any one aspect of the case seems perfectly explainable by itself, but when put together they paint a picture that is bleak and strange for the perpetrators of the crimes.

The mysterious perpetrator shot one cow with a smaller rifle, and cut one hind leg and a shoulder from the body. After that, they scalped the creature and went into its body and took out a lung with surgical precision. There is no known motive for the killings. “If they needed the meat to feed their families,” one local farmer said, “Why take only those parts and leave the rest?” Another farmer from the area expressed his disbelief more colorfully, ending with, “Why take the lung?” As the killing spree continues with no end in sight, authorities are offering a $3,000 reward for information leading to the capture of the cattle mutilators. The offer comes from the Owner of the cattle, the Idaho Farm Bureau, and the Idaho Cattlemen’s Association.
