The Bizarre Killings of Bulls in Oregon This Year

 

In 1975, over 73 cows were found dead in at least 10 other states, all of them were mutilated. The same thing happened during the 1980s in eastern Oregon, which continued for the next two years. While the killings have stopped, authorities still have no clue of who the killer is.

Five dead bulls were discovered in eastern Oregon again recently. The details of their deaths have bewildered local authorities – tongue and sex organs cleanly cut off, no drop of blood left. According to All That’s Interesting, a site for curious people who want to know more about what they see on the news or read in history books, there are no signs that the bulls died of natural causes, such as the digesting of poisonous plants or an attack by a wild animal.

In an interview, Colby Marshall, vice president of the Silvies Valley Ranch that owned the dead bulls, said, “To lose a completely healthy animal would be an oddity. To lose five young, very healthy, in great shape, perfect bulls that are all basically the same age…that is so outside the bounds of normal activity.”

The bulls that were killed were young breeding bulls which are worth $6,000 each. Thus, the deaths are considered a huge financial loss for the ranch. One of the theories that some people believe is that the slayings were a deliberate attempt to hurt the ranch financially. Others think that the crime was perpetrated by some sort of cult. As of now, the Harney County Sheriff’s Office is currently investigating the possibility of a cult group harvesting the cows’ organs to perform some sort of ritual sacrifice.

The recent slayings prompted security concerns in the city, especially among ranchers. “I mean this is the frontier. If some person, or persons, have the ability to take down a 2,000-pound range bull, you know, it’s not inconceivable that they wouldn’t have a lot of problems dealing with a 180-pound cowboy,” Marshall said.
