1963: Woman Witnesses Cattle Multilations

While investigating the sightings of UFO related incidents in the Point Pleasant area of Ohio, USA, in 1967, John Keel interviewed a woman who had witnessed many strange things... most notably, however, is that her farm was one of the first to suffer from the growing plague of cattle multilations.

        Large steers and cows were being found on her farm dead and missing body parts that made no sense for a predator or a thief to take -- brains, eyeballs, udders, and internal organs. Police investigated, but found nothing; and, apparently, they laughed at her when she told them about the people she saw doing the mutilations. Keel didn't laugh.

        She described the culprits as tall men wearing white coveralls who could leap over a high fence from a standing start. She had gone after them with a shotgun on several occassions, but they always got away. As Keel made clear, the woman's farm was in an area he was investigating because of a high number of UFO reports... so he felt the strange men were connected somehow with the UFO reports.

The Mothman Prophecies

        The matter above is just one of many, many events that John Keel relates in his book The Mothman Prophecies, originally published in 1975. In all cases, we have only Keel's word for the matter, especially since he didn't give enough information to identify the woman involved in the account.

        If true, it's noteworthy as the only account of a cattle mutilation in which culprits are claimed to have been seen. On the questionable side, however, it must be noted that by the time Keel's book was published in 1975, the topic of 'cattle multilations' had already become a publically discussed idea being related to possible UFO involvement... so it's possible that Keel invented the account to add this current topic to his unusual book.
