There is a theory that cattle mutilations, which started becoming common in the 1960's, are widely linked to the study of these prions. Human pharmaceutical traces have been found in some cattle, as with some parts removed that seem to have been for testing.

They do not remove the bodies, because a missing cow is going to draw more attention then one that looks like it was killed and scavenged by predators. Ranchers do keep track of the heads of cattle that they have after all.
Chris O’Brien, while not wedded to the theory, remarks that it would account for much of the observed evidence during his years in southern Colorado.
