Currently, I'm searching through websites to help find any sort of information you might need - people you could contact (I'm here in Missouri, as
well, I live between Sedalia and Green Ridge - not sure if you know where-abouts that is) - and, more importantly, who you could send data to and get
You might try getting a hold of some of the people here on ATS doing their own research who might have some more pointers than I do.
This is Wikipedia's take on Cattle Mutilations: en.wikipedia.org...
In it are perfectly logical explanations
for a number of mutilations. That's why the collection of data is very important - because there are a lot of possibilities that exist, and the more
data available, the more we can narrow those possibilities down.
Certainly, if there are people out there attempting to hoax something or just be a pain in the rear - they should be brought up on criminal charges -
and the data you collect could help in that manner, as well (be sure to report any mutilations to the local authorities, as well).
Hmm... this came up in a Google search... and other than being related to Missouri, I can't tell how much use it will be (it's a .pdf) - but here it
is, should make an interesting read, anyway (perhaps worthy of another thread within the forum).
I've been looking for a while, and it doesn't appear that there is much on the Google-available web for reporting cattle mutilations. You'll have
to search in your area for various labs that can do soil samples - talk to a local high school chemistry teacher, or one at a local community college
(not sure if there are many in Southern Missouri).
If you'd like I could talk around up here - my old High School chem teacher is a great guy, and would be able to help out, I'm sure. The problem
would be getting a hold of him, though.
Ah, nevermind... let's just hope he reads his E-mail from his school address over the summer. If need be - I can ask him who we should go to for any
chemical/biological studies (he works in a medical lab and teaches Chemistry and Physics.... he's got so much information in his head that he gets
lost in it, sometimes - quite humorous) - if he isn't willing to do them, himself (and is capable of doing so).
That is, of course, assuming you find something.
Also, I'll check around here on the ATS site to see if there are any people around here doing any sorts of studies or anything. I find this site
somewhat difficult to navigate sometimes as it's more or less centered around the forums.
