The Trinidad Time Independent newspaper covered a rash of local cattle mutilations around 2009-2010 while only ever suggesting UFOs as a possible explanation.

Thanks for letting me know! Frankly, I'm not surprised... claims of UFOs undoubtedly moves more papers than merely reporting that some cows had died.

Chris, I really do enjoy your writing. You included some many articles and images. Poor old Lady :(

I'm glad you enjoyed it! Running across strange and bizarre artices is one of the highlights of my job.

Thanks you so much for your article. I remember so many instances where UFO's have been in the news. Denver and Colorado has so much history and it needs to be shared.
The photographs are a picture in time that most people would not be able to know. The newspapers today are nothing like the old ones that are so valuable to researchers.

I'm so glad you enjoyed it! I love scouring through old newspapers and clippings... you never know what you'll find!

The horse and cattle mutilations were distressing, to say the least. The contention that was raised about the intentions of alien beings to have done this, later resolved what they could have done to humanity if they did not have a benevolent intention. It was a hard way to find out, but one of the few ways to do it.

That's a bizarre case, no doubt. I know one thing for sure. I've spent half my life around livestock. I've found plenty of dead cattle which died of natural causes. If you find them within a few days they're bloated and stink to high heaven. If you find them within a few weeks normally all that is left are the bones and hide. That horse was missing for 3 days. Pretty much everything was intact from below the neck down. Ants and scavengers don't leave remains like that.

Not just a colorado thing. I had a horse in rural missouri that the exact thing happened to. At first I thought coyotes but the stripped neck and head with no blood or tracks defied that theory. And why was the rest of the carcass left uneaten. Coyotes are primarily scavengers. They typically take down small prey such as rabbits. I didn't report it but always felt uneasy about the cause. This story is exactly the same.
