More than 10,000 cattle deaths reported in 1979
ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - A 130-page file reveals just how deep the Federal Bureau of Investigation probed into the cattle mutilation mystery that mystified cattle ranchers in New Mexico and a string of other states from the west coast to the Midwest.
More than 10,000 cattle deaths were reported across the county by 1979. More than 100 were reported in New Mexico between 1975 and 1980.
"One thing about it was they seemed to be healthy animals," said....

I know cattle mutilation is nothing new and this is an old case but this is a fresh story (a couple of hours old) that contains a lot of new information I've never heard before, there's also a good accompanying video on the link above.
Whats clear to me is how the feds were reluctant to be straight with the public and publically address it properly, and some of the official statements back then are insane, how can they conclude after the strange out of the blue number of deaths with no apparent reason for increase in an era of thousands of cattle deaths and mutilations that "About 95-percent of the cases were natural cause deaths" where ?
Wow how the FBI powers have changed since the patriot act, right? I doubt the FBI today worries much about whether they have authority to pursue a case like this, as they did back in 1978.
Even though the FBI was on board, FBI memos communicate a clear concern the bureau may have overstepping its bounds. FBI officials asked the justice department to secure congressional approval, or an executive order, clearing the way for federal agents to investigate.
According the New Mexico Livestock Board, investigators' findings explain most of the deaths from the 1970s, but not all of them.
"About 95-percent of the cases were natural cause deaths and predators," said Pierce. "About 5-percent of these cases there was never an answer. It was always unknown exactly what happened."
Recent mutilation cases are not as abundant as they were in the past, according to the Livestock Board, and modern cases are more easily explained.

One thing puzzles me is the removal of eyes, udders and sexual organs very cleanly with surgical precision.Also the presence of incisions and cuts across the body that appear to have been made by a surgical instrument.
OK this is not the case in all reports but there are people who think this is done by ET,Cult Groups etc.. the list go on.Would be nice to know the truth since that's a lot of cattle.
@ above sorry never read your reply as I was doing the same but I agree with you.
