The Chupa Returns Again?
Let’s cover some bases first. Scientific tests in the form of monitored and recorded onsite experiments with cadavers have proven that the mandibles of maggots can leave wounds that look an awful lot like surgical cuts. Those same tests have shown that insects and scavengers tend to go after softer tissue first. The reason why dead livestock are sometimes missing things like eyes, genitals, and tongues is because those are the first things to be nibbled off or to decompose. It isn’t because the aliens or the Chupacabras have a taste for cow genitals. Natural decomposition processes and scavenging can be mistaken for surgical mutilation by even an experienced eye. And there would be no tracks left if a cow, say, were to die from some normal disease (not uncommon) and then the maggots and the scavengers got at them; the results might look an awful lot like the result of an alien autopsy or a Chupacabra attack. Does that explain, then, the cattle mutilation mystery? No. There are some cases that simply don’t fit the paradigm.
What about the cases mentioned in this linked article? Can they be explained away by natural processes? And really, where *does* all that blood go? Cows have a lot of blood in them. Would it *all* seep into the ground or evaporate?
