Texas Law Enforcement Baffled By String Of Cows Found Dead With Tongues Cut Out | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Law enforcement officials in Texas are baffled by a string of strange cattle mutilations in recent weeks.

    The Madison County Sheriff's Office said Wednesday that at least six cows had been found dead on the side of the road along Highway OSR (Old San Antonio Road) in central Texas. The cows were all found with their tongues cut out; two others had their genitals removed as well. Even more puzzling, the cuts were made with surgical precision and left no blood.

    "Ranchers advised a 6-year-old longhorn-cross cow had been found lying on her side, deceased, and mutilated on their ranch," the Madison County Sheriff's Office wrote on its Facebook page Wednesday. "A straight, clean cut, with apparent precision, had been made to remove the hide around the cow's mouth on one side, leaving the meat under the removed hide untouched. The tongue was also completely removed from the body with no blood spill. It was noted there were no signs of struggle and the grass around the cow was undisturbed. No footprints or tire tracks were noted in the area. Ranchers also reported no predators or birds would scavenge the remains of the cow, leaving it to decay untouched for several weeks."

    "While looking into the longhorn-cross' death, five other similar occurrences involving four adult cows and one yearling were reported along the area of OSR running into Brazos County as well as Robertson County," the post continued. "Each incident occurred in different locations, pastures, and herds. The other cows were found in the same condition, lying on one side with the exposed side of their face cut along the jaw line and the tongue, once again, completely removed. On two of the five cows, a circular cut was made removing the anus and the external genitalia. This circular cut was made with the same precision as the cuts noted around the jaw lines of each cow. Just like the first, there were no signs of struggle or disturbance in the grass, no blood spill, and no noticeable tracks. No predators or birds would scavenge the remains for several weeks after death. The cause of death of all six cows remains unknown."

    The Sheriff's Office said that multiple other incidents had been reported nationwide, and it is working with other law enforcement agencies to find answers. Residents are urged to contact the office with any information and report similar occurrences.

    A similar mystery plagued cattle ranchers in Colorado just a few months earlier. The Daily Wire reported in December that some 40 cows in total, at multiple sites, were found with missing tails and bite marks, but no tracks or other evidence of wolves or other animals were discovered. Around 18 cows were found dead on White River National Forest land on October 5, and the carcasses also turned up in Rio Bianco County in the far western portion of the state.

    At the time, wolves were in the process of being reintroduced to the local ecosystem. There was speculation that wolves had attacked the cows, but experts rejected the theory because of a lack of evidence. Officials also speculated an infection of Clostridium bacteria, but experts dismissed that theory too.
