      CATTLE MUTILATIONS
      SPREAD TO URUGUAY

      The unprecedented wave of cattle mutilations, which
      began at Salliquelo in Argentina's Buenos Aires province
      two months ago, has now spread across the border into the
      neighboring country of Uruguay.
      On Monday, June 24, 2002, "the discovery of a dead
      cow whose tongue, eyes and genitals were extracted in a
      livestock region of the Uruguayan interior has raised
      concerns in that country."
      "The first case was reported today in the Department
      (state) of Durazno, some 300 kilometers (180 miles) from
      Montevideo," the capital of Uruguay, "and resembles cases
      which have occurred" in nine provinces of Argentina.
      "Intendent (Mayor) Carmelo Vidallin tried to calm
      down rumors by saying that 'we must await the experts'
      verdict,' referring to the Ministry of Livestock and
      Agriculture, which is looking into the matter."
      "'It is remarkable that the animal was slain for
      purposes other than eating,' said the intendent, adding
      that 'there are many hypotheses because matters are always
      this way in a small town.'"
      "No signs of blood or of a struggle between the
      predator and its victim were found--an indication that
      suggests mystery and feeds speculation among local
      residents."
      The following day, Tuesday, June 25, 2002, "As
      occurred in Durazno...another cow has been found dead with
      perfect cauterized incisions on its head and sides. Its
      tongue and salivary glands had been removed, along with
      its mammaries, rectum, part of the large intestine and
      genitalia."
      "This time it occurred in Cardona, in the Department
      (state) of Soriano, according to Hipolito Tapie, Director
      of Livestock Health of the Ministry of Livestock and
      Agriculture. Tapie reported that specialists from
      (Uruguay's) Secretary of State had already drawn samples
      from the two animals found dead in Uruguay."
      "'Our own specialists went to extract samples in
      order to submit them to lab analysis in the hopes of
      discovering something,' Tapie added, 'We don't have much
      because only a single animal was found in Durazno. The
      same is happening in Cardona. Just a single animal.'"

      MUTILATION COUNT HITS
      170 IN ARGENTINA

      Argentina's wave of cattle mutilations continued
      without letup last week. Dead and mutilated cows were
      found in nine provinces ranging from Entre Rios in the
      north to Chubut in the south. The mutilation total has
      reached 170.
      On Friday, June 21, 2002, "in southern Buenos Aires
      province," farmers discovered the carcass "of a 9-month-
      old, 250-kilogram Aberdeen Angus calf showing signs of
      mutilation."
      "At Digue, north of Bahia Blanca, the toll has risen
      to nine dead and mutilated bovines."
      "At La Pampa, 10 kilometers (6 miles) southeast of
      Abramo, a shorthorn cow was found with its jaw, tongue and
      udders mutilated, according to Edgar Suarez, the officer
      in charge of the local constabulary."
      "Cattle rancher Oscar Alvarez, the animal's owner,
      also reported an Aberdeen Angus and a Hereford cow, both
      mutilated in a similar fashion."
      "A dead cow also turned up in Jacinto Arauz," the
      site of a similar mutilation three weeks ago.
      "In the department of Lihuel Cahuel, on the border of
      Rio Negro
      province, a four-year-old Aberdeen Angus cow was found
      mutilated in a San
      Laureano pasture field belonging to Ricardo Lavandera."
      On Thursday, June 20, 2002, "the remains of a cow
      showing signs of mutilation were found in the community of
      Maria Grande. The animal had its tail sliced off along
      with its genitalia, masticatory muscles and tongue. It
      was also further reported that the animal had been dead
      for two or three days."
      Also that day, "an animal showing the same signs or
      cuts was found in a pasture of the Diamante region. The
      Diamante case was found in a field located near Costa
      Grande and belonging to Adriana Trossero, as reported by
      local veterinarians to the police, who immediately ordered
      that analyses be performed on the animal."
      "The day before yesterday (i.e. Thursday, June 20,
      2002) it was in Gobernador Ugarte, 25 de Mayo and in
      Bolivar. Today (Saturday, June 22, 2002) it was Roque
      Perez's turn. In a field 10 kilometers (6 miles) from the
      city (Roque Perez) towards the south along the Camino
      Real, Pedro Conserna, 79, a cattleman who had lived in the
      vicinity for 51 years with his son, Abel, and the family"
      raising Aberdeen Angus cows, reported a mutilation.
      "The Conserna family told" the Argentinian newspaper
      La Manana "that they weren't startled at first,
      considering that a storm front had gone past and 'we
      thought a bolt of lightning may have killed them.' But
      later they revealed that 'there is a suggestion of the
      inexplicable because we noticed the absence of udders,
      tongues, eyes and ears in all three cases. It's also
      curious that the incisions appear to have been made with a
      sharp, hot object,' they added."
      Meanwhile, in La Pampa province, "eight more
      mutilated animals were found Friday (June 21, 2002) at
      Lots 2 and 22 of the Department of Curaco, 50 kilometers
      (30 miles) south of Puelches. This was confirmed by
      Deputy Sheriff Omar Martinez."
      "Two of the carcasses were found on Lot 22 in a field

      owned by Augusto Valdome," and the remains "are that of
      two cows missing genitalia, an eye, an ear and part of the
      jawbone."
      "Furthermore, two additional cows and a calf were
      found on a field, also on Lot 22, owned by Julio Rogge.
      The first two were missing the same organs as in the
      foregoing (Valdome) case but the calf was missing its
      lungs, heart and entrails."
      "In a third field, police officers discovered three
      cows in a pasture on Lot 2, owned by Sara Aguerre. The
      carcasses were also missing the genitals, udders, ears,
      eyes and showed deep cuts on their jawbones."
      "Deputy Sheriff Martinez noted that the remains of
      the calf's head found on Rogge's field will be sent to the
      National University of La Pampa's School of Veterinary
      Medicine. The police took the sample due to the strange
      bluish discoloration found (on the calf's head--S.C.)."
      In the northwest, near Santiago del Estero, "the
      police precinct of Garza confirmed yesterday (Saturday,
      June 22, 2002) the discovery of a heifer with its parts
      sectioned off. The event occurred under unknown
      circumstances and the incisions recall those now seen on a
      daily basis in the fields of the provinces of La Pampa and
      Buenos Aires."
      "The animal was found yesterday in a hilly region of
      the place known as Quimilioj, in the department of San
      Martin, by a local resident, Joaquin Lemos. 'The cow
      apparently died two days ago (June 20, 2002), and it was
      found that some of the cow's body parts were missing,
      apparently its eyes and udders, reported police."
      "'There appears to be no putrefaction and, while
      carrion birds presumably approached the animal, they did
      not touch it,' added the police source."
      "Meanwhile, police from Precinct 38 of Garza
      maintained in its report to authorities in the
      (provincial) capital that no tire tracks or footprints
      were found near the animal, nor anything that could
      suggest the presence of cattle rustlers."
      "In Darregueria, Guillermo Garcia, foreman of a
      pasture field in Susana Torres in the Puan district, found
      the head of a calf protruding from its mother's abdomen.
      Both cow and calf had been mutilated and were missing
      tongues, eyes and ears."
      Elsewhere in northern Argentina, the mutilation flap
      hit high gear in the province of Entre Rios. "Two new
      cases increased the death toll in Entre Rios to 16. The
      breakdown of what is known so far about the mutilated
      animals in the province is as follows: one in Lucas Sud
      Primera (dept. of Villeguay); two in Aldea Asuncion (dept.
      of Gulaleguay); one in Costa Grande and another in Las
      Cuevas (dept. of Diamante); one at Pedro Vallejos (dept.
      of La Paz); one at Sola (dept. of Rosario del Tala); two
      in the Third District of Gulaleguay, one in Hasenkamp, two
      at Santa Luisa and two in Maria Grande Segunda."
      "Two new mutilated cow cases were made known at this
      time, having occurred in the department of Nogoya. One of
      the animals was found at Laurencena and the other at
      Seccion Urquiza."
      Veterinarian Pablo Seeling "notified his superiors of

      the discovery, recalling that the Laurencena case involved
      'a bull missing part of its testicles and tongue, which
      had been extracted in a very special (unusual) way.'"
      "'What makes these characteristics special is the
      fact that one must have a special scalpel or something to
      make a cut as clean as the one on the animal. I don't
      want to think about aliens or anything, but I wonder how
      one could make such a precise incision,'" Seeling said.
      "'I made an incision with my scalpel next to the existing
      one, and it was completely different.'"
      Seeling "noted that in any event the animal had been
      dead for about five days, and its flesh looked 'like what
      one would find in the butcher's shop. (i.e. fresh and
      unspoiled--J.T.) This was something that attracted our
      attention immediately.'"

      Salta for June 21, 2002, "Another dead cow found in Maria

      FIRST SHEEP MUTILATION
      OCCURS IN ARGENTINA

      "A pregnant sheep was found 'hollowed out' in Coronel

      Pringles, 120 kilometers (72 miles) north of Bahia
      Blanca," in southern Buenos Aires province in Argentina.
      "The animal found dead at Coronel Pringles was 'a
      very pregnant sheep with cuts in the jawbone and missing
      its tongue and an eye,' according to veterinarian Alberto
      Sensi, who inspected it on the property of Juan Carlos
      Ibarguren, some 85 kilometers (52 miles) from the
      provincial seat."
      "'We found no tracks or footprints, and the rest of
      the herd was very far from the hill on which we found the
      dead animal,'" Sensi reported. (See the TELAM News Agency
      report for June 25, 2002. Muchas gracias a Scott Corrales

      ANOTHER HORSE REPORTED
      MUTILATED IN ARGENTINA

      "A racehorse of the Quarter Horse breed belonging to
      stables at Choele Choel" in Argentina's Rio Negro province
      "was found dead with strange mutilations."
      "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 (jaw) had
      been performed. It had also been castrated and a
      significant part of its small intestine and rectum had
      been removed."
      "'It was as though it had been hollowed out from
      within,' a police source reported."
      Montobbio "dismissed the possibility of an attack by
      'yellow-jacket' wasps," saying, "'The surgical incisions
      presented on the animals cannot have been made by insects.
      The wounds were cauterized.'"
      "This case, unlike others occurred 2,000 meters
      (6,600 feet) from the causeway connecting Choele Choel
      with the island." (See the Argentinian newspapers La
      Nueva Provincia of Bahia Blanca for June 27, 2002, "Second
      horse is mutilated," and Diario Rio Negro for June 24,
      2002, "Another horse found dead in Choele Choel rural
      area." Muchas gracias a Scott Corrales y Gloria Coluchi

      MUTILATION SCARE CLAIMS
      WILD ANIMALS, TOO

      Argentina's wild animals have also been claimed by
      the strange wave of mutilations sweeping that South
      American country.
      In Chubut province, in the far south of Argentina, "a

      guanaco (a small llama--J.T.) showing signs of mutilation
      on its jaw, anus, ear and one eye was found on the beach
      at Punta Pardelas, on the Valdes Peninsula, 200 kilometers
      (120 miles) north of Rawson."
      "The report came from a rural foreman and was made to

      the Sheriff's Office at Puerto Piramide, which, in turn,
      notified the authorities of (the province of) Chubut, who
      sent a team of experts from the Provincial Conservation
      Agency."
      (Editor's Comment: Puerto Piramide...Spanish for Port
      Pyramid. How's that for a Fortean lexilink?)
      "The agency's director, Nestor Garcia, who headed the

      delegation, stated that the case was identical to the cow
      and sheep mutilations in" the provinces of La Pampa, Rio
      Negro, Buenos Aires and Entre Rios. "Garcia noted that
      'what is strange is that there are no tracks to be found
      in the vicinity, except for the animal's own tracks on the
      beach during its last minutes of life.'"
      "'I can't determine how long the animal had been
      there, but it could be that it has been longer than three
      days. This will depend on the autopsy performed by
      specialists from the Centro Nacional Patagonico (National
      Center for Patagonia), headquartered in Puerto Madryn,
      where we took the carcass,' he explained."
      The next day, Monday, June 24, 2002, "another dead
      guanaco was found 5 kilometers (3 miles) north of Puerto
      Piramide with mutilated ears, missing an eye and with no
      sign of any tracks around it."
      Then came the report of "the discovery in Rio
      Colorado of a wild boar showing strange incisions."
      "Cattleman Nestor Soule, owner of a ranch 55
      kilometers (33 miles) from Rio Colorado, in the department
      of Pichimahuida, found the boar last Sunday (June 23,
      2002) 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
      foreman accompanying him, the animal was still soft in
      spite of the minus 14 Centigrade temperature (17 degrees
      Fahrenheit) recorded on the thermometer."
      "'It's impossible that an animal could remain in this

      condition after death and after such cold, but I was
      surprised not to find any tracks nearby,' said Soule. the
      rancher chose not to file a police report but did put the
      boar carcass in his pickup truck to show his neighbors.
      He later left it in the wilderness."
      "'Due to its traits, a boar is an animal that is able

      to smell any living creature at quite a distance...that is
      why it flees at the slightest sign of any peril,' Soule
      explained, '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." (See the
      Argentinian newspapers El Chubut for June 25, 2002,
      "Strange phenomenon reaches Chubut: two guanacos
      mutilated," and La Nueva Provincia of Bahia Blanca for
      June 27, 2002. Muchas gracias a Scott Corrales, Gloria

      UFOs SIGHTED IN TWO
      PROVINCES OF ARGENTINA

      "Several residents" of Carhue, in Argentina's Buenos
      Aires province, "claimed to have seen strange lights
      related to the presence of UFOs."
      "Manuel Alesso and Raul Blengio, two rural cattlemen
      owning property in the Paraje Cilley area, 10 kilometers
      (6 miles) from Carhue. They saw these lights in the same
      way as did other witnesses in different parts of the
      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 lights
      began to shine even brighter and seemed to descend, which
      is why I went over to where Raul (Blengio) was planting
      and told him to look. The lights were white, round, and
      gave off a sort of haze,' adding that 'behind the light
      there was another, less shiny one.'"
      "Raul Blengio stated that the lights moved slowly.
      'They 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 mutilations,' he
      added."
      Carolina Montenegro, a college student majoring in
      business administration, "spoke of having a similar
      experience: 'On Friday night (June 21, 2002), 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
      (altitude) of said light there were no other stars to be
      seen. As I watched, the light changed color from orange
      to red, then to green and then back to orange until, after
      five minutes, it became smaller and vanished.'"
      And up north in Santiago del Estero, "Residents of
      barrio Santa Rosa de Lima (neighborhood) in the city's
      northern end contacted (the Argentinian newspaper) El
      Liberal yesterday (Saturday, June 22, 2002) to report they
      have been witnessing for the past several nights--in
      connection with the (UFO) sightings at Fernandez and Ojo
      de Agua--objects with strange lights in the direction of
      La Venacha, to the northeast of Santiago del Estero."
      "The wave of rumors and UFO sightings are directly
      related to the appearance of mutilated animals and there
      are already specialists who point to the presence of
      'extraterrestrials' as the parties responsible for these
      acts."
      "Jose Villalva, owner of a local supermarket, stated
      that his customers are commenting on the presence of these
      lights in the sky while doing their grocery shopping,
      while stating that he himself has not seen them."
      A UFO "appeared in the sky of Fernandez Robles
      between (Tuesday) June 11 and (Friday) June 14 (2002) at
      different nocturnal hours," followed by "a new sighting
      last Thursday (June 20, 2002) around 9 p.m. Numerous
      residents of the following neighborhoods--El Norte, 12 de
      Octubre, Juan Domingo Peron, Camping, Roca and 102
      Viviendas--claim having seen the luminous object."
      "On said occasion, Marcelo Coronel, a professional
      mechanic living on the Calle Balcarse (street) in barrio
      El Norte, witnessed, along with the light of the moon and
      stars, something similar to 'a headlight surrounded by a
      red border, which increased and diminished in hue, and
      moved slowly from the north to the south without making
      any sound.'"
      "Coronel adds that since he was on his way to the
      Sportivo Club, he followed 'the UFO' in his car 'along the
      old Route 34.' Once he reached the stadium, he continued
      to watch the object along with the Gallardo family 'for
      over 20 minutes until it became lost behind the
      treeline.'"
      Finally, "two girls were hospitalized in Santiago del

      Estero" as a result of "their sighting of 'multicolored
      lights' which were also reported by several other
      residents of the province."
      "Young Gabriela, 7, and Miriam del Valle Salto, 13,
      will remain under observation at the La Banda Children's
      Hospital" in Santiago del Estero "after the curious
      sighting." (See the Argentinian newspapers La Nueva
      Provincia of Bahia Blanca for June 27, 2002, "Lights over
      Carhue," and El Liberal of Santiago del Estero for June
      27, 2002, "UFOs and mutilations at Santiago del Estero."

      CHUPACABRA CAVORTS ON A
      ROOFTOP IN CALAMA, CHILE

      Chupacabra made his official reappearance last week
      in Calama, a small city in northern Chile that has been
      plagued with sightings of the weird creature for the past
      two-and-a-half years.
      "The phenomenon took place in Manuel Rodriguez, a
      housing complex on the Calle San Antonio" in Calama.
      Eyewitness Maria Gavia, an employee of a local
      daycare center, reported, "It was not a man. It did not
      look like a person. It resembled an ape and it jumped all
      over the roof. It passed right in front of my window and
      then it came back, making all kinds of noise."
      "I didn't want to turn on the light, because I was
      very afraid and my window doesn't have screens. I was
      afraid that the animal would break in. I cannot explain
      exactly what happened, all I know is, I was very scared."
      "It was after midnight. Suddenly, I heard loud
      noises coming from the roof. That creature went by my
      window. It jumped a lot. It made very long jumps, unlike
      the way a person jumps. Suddenly, I saw my father coming
      out of the door on the first floor, and the creature
      jumped. It jumped so far that it landed on top of the
      neighbor's house. No person can jump so far without first
      running and gaining momentum. Then it finally left."
      "I was able to listen to the neighbors yelling,
      'There it is! There it is!' It (the creature) finally
      ended up across the street. I know this because the dogs
      across the street began barking and howling. Moments
      later, there was nothing but silence."
      "I had never seen anything like that, as if it was a
      monkey that jumped on two legs and sometimes three. It
      was about 1.5 meters (5 feet) tall, perhaps even more, but
      it was stocky. It made a lot of noise. I could not sleep
      during the entire night." (See the Chilean newspaper El
      Mercurio de Calama for June 23, 2002. Muchas gracias a

      de Calama para eso articulo de diario.)


      THIRD UFO APPEARS OVER
      VIENNA'S HIETZING DISTRICT

      On Thursday, June 20, 2002, at 10:30 p.m., Robin V.
      was enjoying an evening breeze on her balcony in the
      Hietzing district of Vienna, the capital of Austria, when
      she "saw a strange light approaching from the northeast."
      "I was sitting on a balcony of my house in Vienna,"
      Robin reported, "A small star barely visible flew slowly
      overhead. Suddenly, it stopped. Then it became greater
      (brighter). It grew to the size of the sun and was
      increasingly a bright bluish-white."
      "Then sharply-defined rays shot out from it, and the
      light surrounded me totally for several seconds. There
      was no pain or anything other than I just had a great
      feeling of joy and wellness."
      "It (the light beam) ceased immediately, and the
      thing (UFO) just continued to the east. It returned again
      after some minutes. Then it continued to the north
      without showing any further phenomena." (Email Form
      Report)
      (Editor's Comment: Okay, that's the third UFO sighting in
      Hietzing this year. Last time I was only joking when I
      asked if there might be "an underground UFO parking
      garage" under Hietzing. Not any more. To paraphrase a
      homicide detective of my acquaintance, "That's too many
      coincidences for one afternoon. What's the big attraction
      in Hietzing?")


      THREE ORANGE UFOs SEEN
      IN ADELAIDE, S.A.

      On Saturday, June 29, 2002, at 8 p.m., Mrs. R.V.
      received a telephone call from an excited friend, urging
      her to go outside and look at the night sky above
      Adelaide, the capital of South Australia state.
      "It was a clear, bright, moonlit night," R.V.
      reported, "I did not see them approach. They were already
      there when I got a phone call to go out and look. Three
      bright orange lights lined up across the sky, the first
      slightly higher, the last slightly lower than the other
      (middle) but only marginally."
      "When I saw them, they were spread out like that, but

      the person who phoned me said that they were in a > shape
      when she first saw them and then moved into that (linear)
      position. They seemed to be moving slowly towards the
      west, but so slowly that it was hard to tell. They were
      very evenly spaced across the sky and faded in intensity
      once or twice while I was watching them."
      "They were bright orange, there were three of them,
      and from where I stood, they were three-eighths of an inch
      apart. The light across the bottom seemed brighter than
      that at the top. They appeared cylindrical and may have
      had a domed top."
      "Then, minutes later, I went to phone to new status
      and they were gone
      when I got back outside." (Email Form Report)


      READER FEEDBACK:

      FATIMA REVISITED

      Concerning the Francisco Marto mini-biography,
      Portuguese author Joaquim Fernandes writes, "The Francisco
      evocation is pious enough with the same exaggerated
      patterns of the foreign writers, who didn't have full
      access--as we did-- to the sanctuary official archives."
      (See UFO Roundup, volume 7, number 24 for June 11, 2002,
      "1908: Unforgettable Francisco Marto," page 7.)
      "Their books are confessional and not accurate, based

      on biased reports and translations: the Ourem
      administrator's participation is yet rectified, and he is
      NOT anymore the bad guy."
      "Our three research books based on first-hand data
      are critical and offer a new path to a better look at the
      Fatima affair." (Editor's Note: Joaquim Fernandes and
      Fina d'Armada wrote Fatima--Nos Bastidores do Segredo,
      Ancola Editora, Lisboa, 2002.)


      From the UFO Files...

      1975: BLACK HELICOPTERS
      ON THE ATTACK

      The current cattle mutilation wave in Argentina and
      Uruguay had its counterpart twenty-seven years ago, back
      in 1975, when a wave of mutilations swept from Texas to
      Colorado. This "flap" was also remarkable in that it was
      the first widespread appearance of the black helicopters.
      In his 1994 book, Black Helicopters Over America,
      Texas-born author Jim Keith offered a chronology of
      mutilation events involving black helicopters that took
      place between January and October of 1975.
      "On January 22nd (1975) began a remarkable 'flap' of
      unmarked helicopters (often equipped with bright
      spotlights--J.K.) in Texas which would last for three
      months. The flap began when an unmarked chopper (USA
      slang for helicopter--J.T.) was observed, circling an area
      where a possibly-mutilated cow had been found an hour
      earlier."
      "In February (1975), in Wood County, Texas, Mrs. A.D.

      Cruse heard a loud helicopter circling her house. A
      mutilated cow was found on the property the following
      morning."
      "Also in February (1975), numerous unidentified
      choppers were seen in Smith, Gregg, Bosque, Coryell,
      Hamilton, Camp, Kaufman and Hopkins Counties in Texas."
      "February 25th (1975), in Bexar County, Texas,
      Stanley Jasic spotted a silver helicopter flying at a
      distance of a quarter-mile (0.4 kilometers) away. A dead,
      mutilated cow was later found in the area. That same
      night, there were three sightings of unidentified choppers
      in Kaufman County, Texas."
      In his book, The Choppers...and the Choppers, Thomas
      R. Adams tracked "mystery helicopters and cattle
      mutilations" and "informs us that 'The reports of low-
      flying helicopters spotlighting cattle ended (apparently--
      J.K.) in May (in Texas--J.K.)."
      However, "during April, May, June and July of 1975,
      unmarked mystery choppers were sighted in Marshall County,
      Kansas and in at least three instances in Alamosa County,
      Colorado. Now that the Texas flap had ended, mystery
      helicopter sightings suddenly went wild in Colorado in May
      1975."
      (Editor's Note: Alamosa County was also the site in 1967
      of the first puzzling horse mutilation in the USA. The
      mare's name was Lady, but the event became widely known as
      "the Snippy case.")
      "On the 29th of May (1975), in Elbert County,
      Colorado, a sighting of an unmarked chopper was also
      linked to a cattle mutilation."
      "Three girls on horseback were also chased by a
      helicopter on July 17th (1975) in El Paso County,
      Colorado, with a large number of chopper sightings taking
      place at the same time. Editor-publisher John Hines took
      a photo of a mystery chopper the same night as the
      horseback chase. This area was to be the center of a
      great deal of cattle mutilation activity during the year
      1975."
      "On July 23rd (1975) in Elbert County, Colorado,
      Undersheriff Bill Waugh observed a silent helicopter
      through his binoculars. The same night, a search was
      undertaken by the police for a mystery chopper which
      appeared and reappeared in Teller County (Colorado).
      Within recent weeks of these events, there had been 40
      incidents of cattle mutilation in Teller County."
      "August of 1975 was also the beginning of a 'Montana
      flap' and, by May of 1976, there were at least 130 reports
      of helicopters and unidentified craft which had been
      observed in that state."
      "In September of 1975, there were over 40 sightings
      of unmarked choppers in Colorado, the incidents often
      occurring in areas where cattle mutilations were taking
      place."
      "In early September of 1975, a family in Rio Grande
      County, Colorado observed a helicopter with something
      which looked like a 'litter basket' hanging underneath it.
      The following day, a mutilated bull was found nearby where
      the sighting had taken place, suggesting that the 'litter
      basket' arrangement may have had something to do with the
      lifting or transporting of cattle."
      "October 1975 saw a continuance of the Colorado flap,

      with a minimum of 30 sightings being reported in the
      state."
      "On the 3rd of October (1975) in Weston County,
      Wyoming, Raymond 'Spud' Jones and some of his neighbors
      woke up hearing a 'high-pitched whine, like a jet turbine
      starting.' On October 6th (1975), Jones found the
      mutilated carcass of one of his cows in a nearby pasture."
      During the same period, "in Washington County,
      Colorado, ranchers were reporting numerous mystery
      choppers and their connections to cattle mutilations. A
      rancher's daughter, at home by herself, observed a chopper
      flying over a field approximately 100 yards (90 meters)
      from her home. She described the sound of the chopper as
      'muffled.' A dead cow was later found on the ranch."
      The main difference between the USA's cattle
      mutilation flap of 1975 and today's flap in Argentina and
      Uruguay has been the absence of black helicopter sightings
      in those two South American nations. (See the books Black
      Helicopters Over America by Jim Keith, IllumiNet Press,
      Lilburn, Ga., 1994, pages 20, 21, 24, 25, 26 and 27, and
      The Choppers...and the Choppers by Thomas R. Adams,
      Project Sigma, Paris, Tex., 1978, pages 6 through 21.)
