6 cows in Texas found dead and mutilated with their tongues cut out have left police searching for answers

Lazy eyes listen


Six Cattle were discovered dead this week in unusual locations throughout Madison County, Texas, with their tongues removed and no signs of a struggle, according to officials.

According to a statement made on Facebook by Madison County Sheriff’s Department on Wednesday, each of the six cows was discovered lying on its side, deceased, and mangled. The first cow, a 6-year-old longhorn, was discovered on the ranch by its owners.

“A straight, clean cut, with apparent precision, had been made to remove the hide around the cow’s mouth on one side, leaving the meat under the removed hide untouched,” according to the statement. “The tongue was also removed completely from the body with no blood spill.” There were no evidence of struggle, and the grass surrounding the cow was undisturbed. There were no footprints or tire traces found in the area.

While officials were investigating the first cow’s death, four more adult cows and one yearling in similar condition were reported across Brazos and Robertson counties, with each incident occurring in different locations, pastures, and herds, with no signs of a disturbance nearby.

“A circular cut was made on two of the five cows, removing the anus and external genitalia.” “This circular cut was made with the same precision as the cuts noted around each cow’s jaw lines,” the Madison County Sheriff’s Department statement stated, adding: “Like the first, there were no signs of struggle or disturbance in the grass, no blood spill, and no discernible tracks.” For several weeks after death, no predators or birds would scavenge the carcass.”

Madison County Sheriff’s Department representatives refused Insider’s request for comment.

The Associated Press reported a similar incident in Oregon in 2019. Five bulls were discovered with their blood drained and tongues and genitals gone, provoking hypotheses ranging from alien abduction to the occult.

“Personally, I would lean more toward the occult, where people come to different areas and do that for whatever reason — whether it’s a phase of the moon or whatever rituals they’re going to do with their beliefs,” the Associated Press said. Deputy Harney County Sheriff Dan Jenkins commented on the Oregon event.
