UFOs in the daily Press:

Continuing reports of cattle mutilations, Argentina, 2002:

This article has been published in the newspaper El Tribuno, Salta, Argentina, on Thursday June 20, 2002.

Rural Population is Under Alert

Fear of Cattle Mutilations Grows

There is no scientific explanation. Were they sacrificed? New questions arise with new cases in the country.

We are a country without a personality. Anything that arrives from abroad, particularly the unsightly and extravagant, we embrace with unaccustomed devotion. The phenomenon is not new. Since the beginning of the last century, our land has been visited by the most extravagant and sinister sects, and may have joined them without the least bit of reflection. Today, the fashion gyrates around UFO sects and there is a legion of gurus who claim that an imminent planetary catastrophe is on the way and that only the chosen - those who follow their teachings - shall be saved, since a fleet of alien spacecraft will come to collect them. But this enigma has reached our folklore due to the mysterious spate of animal deaths in Argentina. Dead bovines, mutilated and without a trace of blood, have created a strange wave that has generated uncertainty among scientists, fear among the population, and conjectures on extraterrestrial activity. The foreman of an agricultural and livestock concern near the town of Adela, some 680 kilometers southwest of Buenos Aires, found eleven dead cows and bulls whose tongues, eyes, mammary glands and genitalia had been removed. The finding, which was added to another nine dead and mutilated animals in nearby communities, spread fear among the rural population of the region, which is one of the richest cattle production areas of the country. The bovine corpses were scattered in a radius of 300 meters, arranged in a circle, should they be seen from above. The incisions were made with an electronic scalpel - an element which cauterizes as it cuts. No traces of bleeding were found. Moreover, Fabio Zerpa, a former supporting actor who has investigated UFOs for over four decades, told Radio Mitre that he "has no doubt" that it is "one of the customary laboratory surveys of flora and fauna performed by extraterrestrials." "Similar cases have been reported in Spain, the U.S., Chile, Bolivia and Ecuador. The first one occured in Santa Fe in 1964 and in all cases, the pattern was the same: Death without any apparent cause and mutilations without any trace of blood whatsoever," he explained.
