Right now in remote Eastern Oregon, a serial crime spree is unfolding. Young purebred bulls are mysteriously showing up dead. Cowboys recently found several animals with body parts precisely removed — and it’s happened just like this before in the West.


Anderson said he had just been near the spot the night before. The next morning, his cow was laid over and dead, her udder removed with something razor-sharp. “And not one drop of blood anywhere,” Anderson said.


The crumpled carcass of a once vibrant bull lays on Forest Service ground. It was killed along with several others in a strange way at Silvies Valley Ranch in east Oregon, and detectives have few leads.

Searching this image it has only been used with this same story and only recently. This is the only image I could find of a dead animal that relates to this story.

It almost looks like this is an empty hide or an old and dried up carcass. Most images like this I have seen the animal is bloated. Not sure why the image looks like this.

PENDLETON — Outside of Pendleton, Terry Anderson’s cattle have messed up his irrigation spigots. Again. The cows knock them down pretty much daily and he has to fix ‘em. He jumps out of his side-by-side vehicle and deftly rights them again or screws on a new spigot if they’re really bad. “Cows just rub on stuff for the heck of it,” Anderson said with a smile. “They love to scratch.”


Pretty much thinking he's sucked the life out of them - like they sucked the life out of him.

I mean really, how many bloody times can you repair that spigot!

peace

So the only image of the mutilations is a two month old carcass?

Nevermind... from the article...


Over an hour away, north of Burns, cowboys whistle and talk low to eager cattle dogs.

Dust from hooves, both cloven and shod, creates a fog in the early light. As they gather the cow-calf pairs out of a large draw, the animals call to each other.

Silvies Valley Ranch is nearly the size of Chicago. This summer, five young purebred bulls were cut down in their prime. Colby Marshall is the vice president of the ranch.

To understand what happened better, we rattled up a two-track U.S. Forest Service road.

“And we’re gonna drive in here,” Marshall said, “oh, a little ways and then we’ll get out and take a little walk to where one [of] the bulls was found. And the carcass is still there.


So they are driving in to see the carcass months later.

This is the worst article I've ever read... is the writer challenged in some way?

The writing is absolutely horrible.

Seriously?

Glad you picked up on that.


It had me a little confused.


ETA - "And the carcass is still there" I have read that scavengers will stay away from mutilated cattle.

The entire article leaves me with more questions then when I started reading it...

It left me knowing absolutely nothing about the headline.

"Meanwhile, 2 hours away, a lady that grows things saw some things years ago."

Is this reporting now?

You know in the other thread about cow mutilations, looks like the farmers there started dressing there cows with antlers and some were making camo all green overalls so the cows could blend into the backround. Even I am not sure if it was a spoof or not, or at least to bothered to bother with it farther.

Cow mutilations, consiparacy or not. Either way, if we got some yahoos or whoknowswhat UFOs aliens or the easter bunny, we have to put a ban on these thieves, let them grow raise and graze there own dam cows.

We should just let them do it though right. . . and then call the cops after.

Is there anyone who’s seen that kind of decomposition before? That cow looks like it’s empty on the inside, the hide it all folded up like a crumpled rug. It looks strange but then again I’m no expert in long term decomp of large animals.

Lumenari, thank you for saving me hundreds of reading and video-watching hours over the past few years. Your posts dictate how much time I invest/don't invest in a given thread.

"Some cows did something"

I bet it was wolves, and the local DNR is trying hard to ignore this in order to keep pushing the "wolves are endangered and cute" narrative. Just like here in Washington State.

If it's a small town newspaper there's a good chance they don't pay enough for this to be the writer's only job. Her or his day job may be working in the school cafeteria.

I wouldn't believe it.

I'm fairly sure it's bull.

Wolves would take the new born calves or cows, not the bulls. A bull could easily kill a wolf, It doesn’t make mush sense.

I’m glad you spoke up. I was trying to decide if I should point out that bulls don’t have utters . 😊

I searched around a little and found a solid source. This picture is from August 11 .



Here’s the data

Normally I would agree with you, but if not wolves then what? Could it be ranchers trying to get more money for the limited stock they already have, skyfish, or some other predator in the area. I know that Wolverines have been seen more south this year than last year, but I don't picture one of them taking out a bull either.
