Mutilated cow carcasses litter Swedish coast
By Solveig Rundquist
On Tuesday, police launched an investigation into the origin and deaths of five dead cows that washed ashore during the past week.
"This is a highly unusual case," Jimmy Modén, spokesman for the Skåne Police Department, told The Local. "The first report came on New Year’s Eve, and then another on January 4th, and then a third cow was reported on the 5th. Yesterday we received a call about yet another."
The first cow was found in Gislöv harbour, and since then bodies have washed up in Smygehamn, Beddingestrand, and Falsterbo, stretching over 56 kilometres of the southern Swedish coast.
"I was out looking for amber stones on Falsterbo beach when I saw that there was a dead cow there," Mikael Lönnström told newspaper Expressen. "It looked very fresh. The stomach looked a little swollen. The whole thing was very strange."
Several of the cows had their feet bound, indicating that the animals were dumped and didn't wade into the water. The question is if they were dead before being thrown into the water. Dumping slaughter waste in water is illegal, and depending on how the cows died an owner may also be charged with animal cruelty. . . .
