Cattle Mutilation Stuns Ranchers

Cattle Mutilation Stuns Ranchers

By Karen Ogden

     Great Falls -- Valier rancher John Peterson and his wife were recently headed out into the twilight to do chores when they spotted her.

The healthy young cow lay dead in a stubble field, just off the road.

Stopping the truck to investigate, they found the sickening, telltale signs.

The cow's udder, genitals and rectum were removed with stunning precision. The left side of her face was also gone, the exposed bones stripped as clean as if they'd been boiled.

Peterson, who discovered a similarly mutilated cow on his neighbor's ranch five years ago, knew he was the latest victim in one of rural Montana's greatest mysteries. . . .
