I saw a fascinating documentary on this subject a year so ago. A British reporter flew to the states and did a ton of in-depth investigation. What he found was a pattern. Nearly all the mutilations take place in areas either near to nuclear powerplants, or areas that have suffered some form of radioactive contamination in the past (this would explain why no pre WW2 mutilations), be it 'hushed up' or otherwise. So, one side of the theory is that the cows are being 'sampled' to gauge how badly contaminated the land is, without sending the public into a panic. The cows live off the land, hence ingest the toxins, the herds are often all of the same 'family' that have always lived on that land, so the 'test conditions' are near perfect, meaning there's a direct trace and comparison line for the toxins from the 50's until now.The Govt want things kept quiet, so cant just go round to the farmers house and ask to borrow a cow to take a contamination sample from!
The second side to this is the black helicopters which are often seen in the vicinty before and following mutilations. Now apparently this explains HOW the cows are mutilated. Laser scalpels. Killing two birds with one stone, the government is taking this opportunity to experiement with it's secret and newly developed laser scalpel technology. The 'hit and run' situation required for such activity also works as a good training aid for the men involved, simulating covert battle-field conditions. Linking back to the previous paragraph, apparently the bits that the mutilators take (eyes, anus etc) are the best pieces of an animal to use for such longterm contamination tests.
Now make of all that what you will, but the guy on the TV made it sound most convincing!
