A WILD BOAR IS ADDED TO THE LIST OF COWS, HORSES, SHEEP AND A GUANACO
**Wild animals are also experiencing strange mutilations**
The case is suggestive, because wild boar are highly distrustful and
detect--through their sharp olfactory system--the presence of strangers. On
this occasion, an eight month old boar was mutilated. This is the second
instance of a wild animal being mutilated since the appearance of a mutilated
guanaco in Chubut.
While the mutilation count is now reaching 170 and the cases recorded extend
to nine Argentinean provinces, a new ingredient has been added to the
phenomenon: the discovery in Rio Colorado of a wild boar carcass showing
strange incisions. This is the 6th species hit by the phenomenon, since the
mutilated remains of cows, horses, sheep, pigs and even a guanaco (in the
province of Chubut) have been found.
Cattleman Nestor Soulé, owner of a rural property some 55 km from Rio
Colorado, in the Department of Pichimahuida, found the boar speciment last
Sunday near a gully. The animal, he explained, had geometrically perfect
incisions and was missing the anus, tongue and jaw. To the surprise of the
rancher and the farmhand escorting him, the animal was still soft in spite of
the -14 C temperature marked by the thermometer.
"It's impossible that an animal could remain in this condition after dead and
after the cold, but I was surprised not to find any tracks nearby," said
Soulé, who is aware of the "map" presented by the animals and the varying
forms and conditions of the pasture surface. The rancher chose not to file a
police report, but did put the boar carcass in his pickup truck to show his
neighbor. He later left it in the wilderness.
"Due to its traits, a boar is an animal that is able to smell any living
creature a quite a distance, even thought [the boar] may be young....this is
why it flees at the slightest sign of any peril," Soulé explained. The
rancher thus made clear why this case is so fascinating and different to the
ones involving breeding animals. "I'm not a researcher or anything similar,
and that's why I don't know what to say, but this is strange and I never saw
anything like it before."
**In La Pampa**
The carcass of an Aberdeen Angus bovine missing parts of its body were found
last weekend in a field located 2 km from the town of Embajador Martini,
province of La Pampa.
The professionals who analyzed the case verified that it was missing part of
its tongue and mammary glands, and that its left maxillary had been sectioned
off. A mysterious situation also occured to the north of the Pampan town of
Rancul at the "Los Caldenes" ranch, where a cow had died of natural causes in
the afternoon only to be found with incisions on its jaw and missing its
tongue the next day. The province of Entre Rios has also the epicenter of
these events: in a field located 2 km from Rt.11, a rancher found a 170 kg
heifer and a 500 kg. milk cow some 800 meters from each other, both
presenting the notorious incision marks.
Cases involving strange animal deaths are still a subject for discussion in
this city given the fact that mutilations continue to appear day after day
for unknown reasons. The discoveries made by veterinarian Fernando Lopez are
complemented by those of his colleague, Horacio Volpe.
Last week, the professional was summoned by the owner of a rural property
located 25km from Carhue--no personal information mentioned for privacy
reasons--where an 8-9 month calf showing the trademark incisions recorded in
the area had been found.
The professional noted that his attention was drawn by the perfect incisions,
the flacidness of the animal --"which seemed recently dead," he noted -- and
the absence of blood.
While Volpe preferred not to hazard a theory, he pointed out that an employee
of the property told him that his brother, who was cultivating during the
night, "saw some intense red lights, as though from a laser, moving very
quickly across the countryside."
Veterinarian Omar Fernando Lopez also observed a new case in a rural
establishment close to this city: it involved a pregnant cow found in the
fields of Juan Carlos Robilotte, showing the same incisions, with the
difference that the cow was about to give birth. "There was a circle [on the
left flank, above the udder] through wihch half of the calf's body was
protruding, but I couldn't ascertain if there were any lesions, since it was
in an advanced state of decomposition."
* A Racehorse *
A racehorse belonging to the Quarter Horse breed, belonging to stables near
the Rio Negran town of Choele Choel, was found dead with strange mutilations.
"It was as though it had been hollowed out from within," reported police
sources in describing the stud horse, of considerable economic value.
Veterinarian Carlos Montobbio, who certified the case, reported that the
horse was missing an eye and part of its tongue, but no incisions on the
maxillary had been performed. It had also been castrated and a significant
part of its small intestine and rectum had been removed. The expert dismissed
the possibility of an atatck by "yellow-jacket" wasps: "the surgical
incisions presented by the animals cannot be made by insects," said
**Lights Over Carhué**
Several residents claimed to have seen strange lights allegedly related to
the presence of UFOs. Manuel Alesso and Raul Blengio, two rural livestockers
owning property in the Paraje Cilley area, 10 km from Carhué, saw these
lights in the same way as did other witnesses from different parts of Buenos
Aires province. "Between 7:30 and 8 p.m., I was touring the fields of Arroyo
Venado when I saw two lights to the northeast," said Alesso. He added that
he stopped his pickup truck and flashed his headlights at the lights. "The
light began to shine even brighter and seemed to descend, which is why I went
over to where Raul (Blengio) was planting and asked him to look. The lights
were white, round and gave off a sort of haze," he noted. He said that behind
the light there was another less shiny one.
Raul Blengio added that the lights moved slowly: "The weren't stars...they
were strange moving lights," explained Alesso, while adding that a third
witness accompanying them also saw the lights."I'm certain they have
something to do with the cattle mutlations," he added.
Carolina Montenegro, a young Carhuensan about to graduate with a devgree in
Business Administration, spoke of having a similar experience: "On Friday
night, around nine, I was in the countryside and to my surprise I saw a small
light, orange in color and smaller than a star, and at the height of said
lights there were no other stars to be seen. As I watched, the light changed
colors from orange to red, then to green and then back to orange until after
5 minutes it became smaller and vanished."
