Even More Cattle Mutilation

Well, the student of conspiracy theory's work is never done. Apparently I completely missed a mid-90s scare (another one that became an X-Files episode) blaming cattle mutilations on the legendary bloodsucking Mexican monsters, the Chupacabras. Chupacabras are sort of a cross between vampires and Bigfoot. Click the link and read all about it.

Those who don't buy the Chupacabra theory can turn to the NIDS research on cattle mutilation mentioned in class, and find the specific study I showed, making the unexpected link between cattle mutilations and Alzheimer's, here.

After class Tuesday, a student told me a great cattle mutilation story from an actual Missouri farm. I hope he will post that as a comment. [Update: Thanks, Jared]
