Rancher's Colorado Farm the Site of Dozens of Cattle Mutulations

Rancher’s Colorado Farm the Site of Dozens of Cattle Mutilations, Says Carcasses “Dropped from Above”


For the past 14 years, rancher Tom Miller’s cattle farm has been at the center of a string of highly bizarre animal mutilations, deaths Miller says range anywhere from missing eyes and organs, to full body exsanguination.

In 1999, after years of believing his farm had fallen victim to a series of barbaric jokes, the second generation cattle farmer from Trinidad changed his tune.

cattlemutilation“At first I thought it was a prank, but there were no tracks, no blood. It looks like the carcass is peeled off, and it happens overnight,” he told the Pueblo Chieftain this last week.


“There are just so many things that happen that doesn’t seem like its human. I know people think you’re crazy, but there are so many things people can’t explain.”

Cue Chuck Zukowski, UFO investigator and one of the leading authorities on cattle mutilation in the US. With over 28 years of investigating experience under his belt, Zukowski has claimed to authenticate at least 24 cases of mutilation in Trinidad, Colorado alone.

Zukowski has paid many visits to the Miller farm throughout the years to investigate and confirm the strange deaths repeatedly happening during the wee hours of the morning. Intriguingly enough, during a recent visit to the Miller ranch, he discovered high traces of radiation surrounding a carcass he and Miller found in a nearby tree.

“I had some unusual radiation readings in a field at Tom Miller’s place, and you could see where branches were broken where the carcass was found,” he explained.

Judging by an even more recent incident, Zukowski may be making another house call. Yet another mutilated calf was found, the scene devoid of blood, footprints or tire tracks. Even weirder? The evidence has led both men to believe the body was dropped from the sky.

If you ask me, my advice is install a security camera, already! You’d think after 14 years that might have crossed their minds. Is it a band of night traveling serial killers? Great, now you have video to give to police. It’s extraterrestrial in nature? Awesome, now you’ve video to sell to news stations all over the world. Everyone wins! Except the cows.

What are your thoughts on the strange happenings at Tom Miller’s ranch? Are the cattle deaths the result of beef-eating aliens, satanic cults, or maybe even the Chupacabra? Let us know what you think on Facebook, on Twitter @WhoForted, or in the comments below.

I agree, install a security camera! I can’t believe he hasn’t done that yet.

A security camera to cover 700 acres of property ????

cattle rancher…probably has 100’s of acres for the cows to graze, exactly where would you put the camera?

While I firmly believe there is a genuine cattle mutilation phenomenon, stretching back more than four decades, I also believe the vast majority of cases are nothing more than nerves and shooting at shadows. I used to work at a farm in my youth. Free ranging cattle die all the time from a huge variety of natural causes, ranging from disease to lightning strikes (more common than you may think). Carcasses are usually not found until days after the death, by which time livor mortis has set in (meaning the carcass looks like it has been bled dry) and scavengers… Read more »

But where did the radiation come from?

Colorado has a lot of radon.

Well said!!

Teleportation malfunction happens all the time. The future is stealing our food. But fairs fair – we took their eco-system, resources, economic stability, faith, culture, hope and food supply so they have to get it from somewhere. Next time you see a bag of chips burst in the aisle at the market you’ll know the real truth of what’s going on. 😉

… Although, as it’s a fact cows produce an incredible amount of methane that top picture could be the result of an intestinal blockage. There was some recent study that linked ketosis in pigs to spontaneous combustion; so that’s a big may-be for my theory of the first photograph. The second photo looks like dehydration, hungry wild animals, and an old farmer forgetting he hasn’t rotated to that pasture for 6 months. And, pfft more wonder disappears from the world and the world is no better for it. 🙁 Teleporter malfunction and a sneaky future where pirate downloading is robbing… Read more »

“The evidence has led both men to believe the body was dropped from the sky.”

Farmer Miller should put GPA tracking chip on all their animal and should one gets zap on alien space ship than he will no doubt blame Lucifer flying space aliens.
… now what to do with these pesky aliens ? … maybe rigged his cow horns with explosion and detonated when his kidnap cow is on board the space ship… just a thought Farmer Miller.

Hire someone to watch the cattle and area morning noon and night. And set up cameras and bate cattle. This needs to be done at every place where this has happened I’m for hire to watch the cattle 24 7 for a good fee 🙂 We need to know who’s doing this all over the world. If they are coming back they can be found out if we wait daily and watch for them.

I was westbound on I-70 at MP-5. When. I. Noticed. What appeared to be a helocopter with a water collection device like the hot shots use for fighting forest fires hanging below. It was between two hills to the south. I kept watching it and there was no tail boom like on a copter. The sun flickered on the side of it so it was a smooth surface. To discribe the shape, it looked like a TOP like we had as a kid with a perfectly round ball hanging like from a pipe below. I took a quick look at… Read more »
Having lived in this area some time ago, I had encountered a strange occurrence. It was dark, and I was traveling home on an old country road, and suddenly there was a sudden red glow. This glow filled the countryside, I could see the hills light up, then it was gone. If it was a comet, I didn’t hear a boom, or feel any impact to the ground. It wasn’t a “falling star” as it wasn’t white colored. This must have been a big object because I could see hills that were miles away from me light up on the… Read more »
whatever it is, its big, its strong and It can fly.its living underground.it comes out to feed. It is swooping down on the animals and it is not taking them far to feed on them. more than likely if you look up its using the trees at night. When it is done feeding it takes the carcass and drops it from the sky. Is not afraid it’s making a statement. Catch me if you can.the investigators need to check the trees for traces of blood on the branches or leaves after carcasses is found on the property.there is more than… Read more »

Which god is to help monstrous humans? Looking at the photo, a dozen less burgers… I’m out of ketchup anyway…
