      Two New Reports on the NIDS Website

      NIDS List Subscribers,

      NIDS was contacted at 8:00 AM on the morning of February 21, 2002
      regarding an "ice circle" that had mysteriously appeared on a ranch
      overnight. According to the report, at approx 7:00 AM on the morning of
      February 21, 2002 the circle, measuring 5 feet 9 inches in diameter, was
      discovered in an irrigation canal on a ranch in NE Utah. The local NIDS
      investigator, who is a retired deputy sheriff and an experienced tracker,
      was on the spot within less than an hour. The investigator immediately
      proceeded to take photographs (see Photos 2-5 in report on the What's
      New Section of the NIDS website: http://www.nidsci.org).

      The ice was approximately 3/4 inch thick under the circle. The circle
      occurred near a spot where ranch cattle frequently drink water (see photo
      in report). According to the investigator, the nearby cattle were behaving
      normally when he arrived. The remainder of the report has just been posted
      on the NIDS web site.

      Secondly, a mutilated Red Angus cow was found in Montana in June 2001 with
      no obvious tracks from vehicles, people, or predators around the animal.
      The mutilations consisted of very clean excisions of the left eye and
      eyelid, rectum, genitalia, and tongue. The previous NIDS Report
      ( ) documented the
      analyses of green colored tissue from underneath the left jaw-bone,
      vitreous fluid, and a maggot mass. A cursory examination of vitreous
      fluid from a control heifer was also done. This recent addendum report
      summarizes the results obtained when additional brain tissues samples were
      submitted for analysis from the Montana cow, as well as the control
      heifer. The assignment was to look for any components that should not be
      normally present in the mutilated animal. Secondly, an in-depth
      evaluation of the MS data previously obtained in November 2001 from
      vitreous fluid of the control heifer was completed as an aid to accomplish
      this objective.

      The results in this addendum report support those reported previously.
      Oxindole was found at low levels in the brain of the mutilated animal but
      not in the brain of the control. Oxindole was found at high concentrations
      in the eye-fluid of the Montana animal and was completely absent from the
      eye-fluid of the control animal. This addendum report (three photos, one
      table and eight figures) documents the complete GCMS comparative analysis
      of the eye fluids from both mutilated and control animal. No other unusual
      molecules were found in the brain of the mutilated animal.

      Both reports have been recently posted in the "What's New" section of the
      NIDS website at: http://www.nidsci.org
