Last week, six cattle died mysteriously in Texas with their tongues removed, the hide around one side of their mouths gone, and no blood spilled according to authorities. The suspicious deaths prompted theories that included everything from carrion bugs to flying saucers, satanic cult killings, or secret government operations. Recently, the cattle population has been under immense attack, either through fires burning down dairy farms or “natural” causes.  Their sordid demise is certainly sending a terrifying message and possibly, a bad omen.  Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks with Christopher O’Brien and Bryan Bowden about CALVES AND THE CALF NOTS – SAUCERS SATANISTS AND THE DEEP STATE.





It seems to be happening a lot. Pictures online of plumes of smoke and fire in remote areas. Building damage and loss of life. There appears to be a pattern and these images are not of war-torn Ukraine.

They are images of the various food manufacturing and agribusinesses that provide us with food that we eat every day. The idea that these are part of bigger agenda of sabotage is being shut down by so-called fact checkers — but most of us can see that there has been a war declared on our agriculture, especially on our poultry and cattle farms.

A couple of weeks ago there was a huge explosion and fire at a dairy farm in Dimmit Texas were nearly 20,000 cows perished. That many heads of cattle can fill up to 26 football fields if they were to be standing 3 feet apart.

This disaster was possibly the most cattle killed in a single incident ever in the U.S.

The fire spread quickly through holding pens where the cows were trapped. Most of them – a mix of Holstein and Jersey cows – were waiting to be milked.

The 18,000 cows killed were about 90% of the dairy farm’s total herd.

The cows were valued at about $2,000 apiece.

The last report of a massive herd loss was in Kansas of last year.

At least 2,000 died following a heat wave in southwestern Kansas. Reports that the cows died of heat stroke is the official narrative in the mainstem media although there were many that said that the cows were killed through an act of agroterrorism to disrupt the food supply.

It was in the month of April 2022 that we were made aware of many agribusinesses that were destroyed by fire and or sabotage.

The year before, Personnel at The Bar V Ranch in North Dakota found 58 dead cows and 15 other cows that suffered spontaneous abortions in a pasture near Jamestown. After testing for other causes, veterinarians believe the deaths were “caused by something not naturally occurring.”

The North Dakota Stockmen’s Association has put up a $40,000 reward for information about the deaths of these pregnant cows that were grazing on the Arrowwood National Wildlife Refuge.

The cows were found dead on July 29th, 2021 on land leased by the Bar V Ranch.

There seems to be a war on agribusinesses and it may be a combined effort to not only force scarcity on the people but to also introduce another bio contaminant in a gain of function research.

In times such as these, I am becoming acutely aware that when you decide to deliver controversial material it has to be served quite placidly and delicately.

Recently, I have found myself in a situation where stories that I have prepared contain so much information that it is difficult for everyone to take it all in.

I want to assure everyone that the topic I wish to explore has to do with rogue experimentation and what can be called second generation experimentation and Zoonosis where human diseases have a relationship with animals.

This is something that we have shown before, goes hand in hand with what the military and scientists call Gain of Function exercises.

Six cattle died mysteriously in Texas, with their tongues removed, the hide around one side of their mouths gone and no blood spilled according to authorities.

The cause of death for the six animals was unknown, the Madison County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement Wednesday. As of Friday, there had been no updates in the case.

The cattle were found along Texas State Highway in three counties — Madison, Brazos and Robertson — with each animal part of a different herd and in a different pasture.

Five of the animals were adults, the sheriff’s office said. One was a yearling. It wasn’t immediately clear when they died. The sex of the animals wasn’t disclosed.

In two cases, the animals’ genitalia and anuses had been removed with a circular cut that the sheriff’s office said had been made with the same precision as the cuts noted around the jawlines of each cow.

Investigators with the Madison County Sheriff’s Office discovered five of the deaths after ranchers alerted authorities to a dead 6-year-old longhorn-cross cow, the statement said.

The grass around the bodies of all six animals was undisturbed, with no signs of struggle and no footprints or tire tracks found, the sheriff’s office said.

Ranchers also reported that no predators or birds would scavenge the remains of the cow, leaving it to decay untouched for several weeks,” the sheriff’s office said.

The sheriff’s office noted that similar incidents have been reported across the United States and it was coordinating with other law enforcement agencies.

In 2019, authorities in Oregon found five dead bulls that had their sex organs and tongues removed.

The deaths prompted theories that included everything from carrion bugs to flying saucers satanic cult killings, or secret government operation according to the AP.

It wasn’t clear if the deaths were solved.

There is no other paranormal terminology that serves up some horrid imagery and that is the term “cattle mutilation.”

Some try to lessen the trauma by saying that the phenomenon is typically little green men beaming cows into spaceships. Maybe a joke gets thrown in about rednecks and probes.

If you ask someone to name an example on film or TV, they’ll say The X-Files or, if they’re old enough, In Search of… shows which featured mutilations but where mutilations were not the feature. TV casts a long shadow over the UFO phenomenon because of how ubiquitous spaceships have been on cable programming for decades.

I remember hearing about Cattle Mutilations on a show called Extra, long before it was franchised as a tabloid Hollywood gossip show.

The films covering cattle mutilation in the various fields of study under ufology are less talked about. The reason is simple the idea of linking Extra-terrestrials to cattle mutilations damages the credibility of those who wish to push the new age idea that aliens mean us no harm.

Specific fields like mutology, or the study of cattle mutilation, only briefly captured the public’s attention. Academics were quick to dismiss it as mass delusion.

If they say it is not real then we must believe them.

Just like fact checkers tell us that there is no intentional Sabotage of agribusinesses — it is all mass hysteria.

But the Farmers who were victimized were not delusional, and wanted answers — many claimed to see bright unexplained lights over their farms before the mutilations happened.

This was the beginning of a massive mistrust of the government in the 1970s. They believed that the government was aware of what was attacking the agribusinesses and would not speak up about it.

More than any of that, it was an example of how the rational can transform into the irrational, undefined fears given shape and the fears of Satanic cults, UFOs, and the CIA were all said to have a part in the cattle deaths.

The mysterious deaths coupled with other strange occurrences put ranchers on edge. As early as 1974 there were reports of interactions between ranchers and the mutilators, but in July of that year, a man in Honey Creek, Iowa, claimed an unmarked helicopter had opened fire on him.

So by 1975, the ranchers had had enough. In September, groups in Colorado began stockpiling weapons and forming posses to stand watch over cattle. Some went as far as to fire upon government survey helicopters working in areas near their land.

And then just as mysteriously, reports of mutilations themselves began dying off. News coverage of dead cattle decreased in 1976 and 1977, picking up again at the end of the decade, and then wavering off and on throughout the eighties and nineties. Where did the cows go?

Home video. Once the provenance of news media, depictions of cattle mutilation transitioned to feature and documentary films to mixed results.

The gap that existed for some time gave reason for ecologists and investigators to go back and compare their notes about what was happening and surprisingly the thought of Satanic cults was rejected in favor of two scenarios, extra-terrestrials were flying in and mutilating the cattle for experimentation or the CIA and the pharmaceutical companies were going in and mutilating the cows to monitor nuclear test effects and future pandemics.

Coincidentally the government was conducting open-air biochemical weapons tests on U.S. soil near ranches.

One incident, in particular, stands out—in 1968, ranchers near the Dugway Proving Grounds, a U.S. Army chemical weapons testing facility in Tooele County, Utah, reported their animals dying under unusual circumstances.

Between March 14th and March 17th, 6,000 animals mostly sheep died in convulsive fits from asphyxiation.

Early reports highlighted the fact that no one, including the Army, knew the cause.

A March 21, 1968, article out of The Ogden Standard-Examiner stated that Army germ warfare officials from Dugway even tested the soil for nitrates to determine the nature of the “mysterious poison” that killed the sheep.

Army officials denied any responsibility; on April 18, 1968, the Army issued a press release acknowledging evidence may appear to suggest their involvement but argued it was circumstantial and could not definitively show a link.

It would be another 30 years before the Army admitted open-air tests of a deadly nerve agent, VX, were being conducted near ranchers in the same period the deaths occurred.

Despite this admission, the Army still refused to take responsibility for any casualties.

These events are connected to larger stories nationally. As part of the 1975 Church Committee hearings on abuses committed by the Central Intelligence Agency, Army scientist Charles Senseney testified that in 1966 the Army had dropped a light bulb containing the bacterium Bacillus atrophaeus on the New York City subway while passengers rode the line as part of a test to see how biological weapons might spread.

This was another in a series of dangerous Gain of Function exercises.

In 1972, just before the cattle mutilation craze kicked off, the price of feed for cattle jumped in response to the United States government sending emergency supplies of grain to famine-wracked African and Asian nations.

Some researchers have suggested the high cost of grain combined with a struggling U.S. economy may have led some ranchers to kill their own cattle and/or misreport natural deaths as cattle mutilation to collect insurance on their herds.

However, these examples don’t explain why such claims have persisted across decades. Mute cases were still being reported as recently as 2019, yet no ranchers connected the deaths to the government.

In fact there has been a resurgence in the idea that it may be UFO-related.

There is one aspect of conspiracy theory that rarely gets attention as it is considered the black sheep of Ufology and that is the MILABS conspiracy. MILAB is short for Military Abduction Theory. It is the proposal that human experimentation and farm animal mutilation have been carried out by extraterrestrial intelligence working secretly with the Military Medical Complex.

In the 1970’s well into the mid-1980s the media reported unusual findings in dead cattle. Ranchers would happen upon the dead Bovine and notice that the bodies were mutilated beyond recognition.

Usually, genital organs or portions of the face and head were missing in animals found dead on the range. Characteristically, tissue edges surrounding the removed areas were described as being remarkably smooth. This phenomenon was the subject of newspaper and magazine articles, television interviews, and at least one half-hour television program called Extra.

Ranchers who were normally rational and critical, and otherwise analytical members of the media, were given to wild speculation about the possible origins of these findings. The phenomenon was attributed in the popular press to visitors from outer space, satanic cults, deranged persons, and/or the military or CIA.

One particular group that seemed to be overlooked in all of the speculation was rogue labs that would observe herds, mark them and then return to take body parts that may be affected by a zoonotic gain of function experiment.

A zoonosis is an infectious disease caused by a pathogen an infectious agent, such as a bacterium, virus, parasite or prion that has jumped from an animal usually a vertebrate to a human.

As we have discussed the word vaccine itself is connected to the Latin word, Vacca as the first vaccines came from Cowpox materials.

Bovine blood and tissues can be used to force multiply vaccines.

Could it be that someone at an official level is well aware of the paranormal connections and is using them to throw off the trail of bioterrorism? Or are the military working with aliens beings and allowing for the mutilations of cattle for their own experiments/

Someone like Bill Gates and Dr. Fauci is deeply concerned about emerging viruses in the food chain, and is secretly sampling cattle across the nation to determine the state of their health. Those engaged in such activities, however, are very happy to have you think the killings and mutilations are the work of aliens.

Ever wonder why the Chinese and Gates himself are so interested in buying up farmland? The Chinese love to buy farmland next to military bases and Gates is investing in genetically modified meat and vegetables.

While it is unlikely to satisfy those who so desperately wish to believe that the mutilations are the work of aliens from distant outer space — we have to consider that it’s not just either or — it could be the handy work of both.

Keep in mind that The FBI has files on thousands of mysterious cattle killings and mutilations across the U.S. since the 1970s, but no reported arrests.

While there have been rumors of extraterrestrials looking for samples or cults looking for sacrificial offerings, the lack of any case resolutions – even when government investigators are involved – has many pointing to cover-ups by other government organizations hiding possible problems in the U.S. food supply, which contains a large amount of beef.

he 1960s and early 1970s in general were a time of national turmoil, so it’s easy to buy into this conspiracy theory, especially when many reports included sightings of black helicopters. While those sightings have gone down, the mutilations have gone up.

Could these new ones be linked to today’s turmoil?

There is a body of thought that theorizes that cattle mutilations are bad omens. They are simply a pretext for disease and scarcity and if the aliens or some other force is taking the body parts of birds, domestic animals and cattle it is because they wish to analyze them for the possibility of a future plague.

We need to understand that cattle and other animals are exposed to all sorts of outside evils that find their way into the ecosystem.

It can be said that reports of cattle mutilations and scarcity certainly send a terrifying message.

It is all around us now as we see farms and agribusinesses being sabotaged — and now cattle mutilations are back.



From 1999-2002, Christopher O’Brien investigated hundreds of unexplained events in south-central CO/north-central NM. His investigations are chronicled in his “mysterious valley” book trilogy and his event log of UFOs, cattle mutilations, crypto-creatures, etc., is one of the largest databases of unusual occurrences from a single USA. His latest book, Stalking the Herd, is the most comprehensive book ever written addressing the perplexing “cattle mutilation” mystery.

He is currently marketing UFO surveillance gear and software monitoring equipment with UFODAP. Their gear and software is already in 43 locations in 9 countries, O’Brien has appeared on in over 90 TV show segments and films; Ancient Aliens, UFO Hunters, Inside Edition, Extra, etc., and he co-produced and edited the film “It Could Happen Tomorrow” winner of two 2012 EBE film festival awards—for Best Feature and Peoples Choice Award.

Born and raised in New York City, Bryan Bowden, as a child, Bryan experienced some unusual events that drove his curiosity and would later propel him into becoming a boots-on-the-ground UFO, Cryptid and paranormal Researcher and Investigator. Since 1977 he has used his spare time to explore those areas of interest, traveling the world in pursuit of the Truth, His experiences in the paranormal realm cover the gambit of the goblin universe, from encounters with Sasquatch, Dogman and spirits to several UFO experiences, each has been the driving force in his quest for more knowledge and ultimately Answers.

Bryan has worked with numerous paranormal organizations around the globe and has brought an entirely fresh perspective and process to the paranormal field and investigations culminating in Revolutionary results. He started the Paranormal Center and is a former member of the board for the Pine Bush UFO Festival and Conference.

    If it was the govt. they would do it in Lab! In privately no trace! Unless they want you to find the dead carcasses?

    Someone is studying effects of what the cow eats and craps out. A big thing about cattle is they are the original source of steroids. Bull urine was used treat ailments because it contains testosterone. The nazis made one of the first synthetic versions and gave it to their soldiers. And milk and other dairy products. Cows are a hormone food producing machine. It seems like there are nazi connections to everything.
