- Cows Found Inside a Water Tank
The Strange Case of Suco
Investigated by El Diario
- On the last Friday of June 2002, an event of truly strange
characteristics took place in a field of the locality of Suco, located
to the west of Rio Cuarto, very near the border with San Luis Province.
In the aforementioned Cordoban locality, a well-known livestock producer
respected by all for his responsibility and honesty, found 19 dead animals
within an Australian-type water tank (translators note: steel-sided, sheet
metal tank with a conical cap). Nine of the bovines were dead, according
to subsequent medical-veterinarian examinations due to asphyxiation through
immersion. The rest were alive, but affected by the low temperatures and
near dead due to freezing.
- The news not only spread like wildfire throughout the
area: it was confirmed by police officials of Regional Unit 7, headquartered
at Rio Cuarto, who took over the investigation of the case employing personnel
from the Sampacho District Sheriff's Office, located 50 kilometers west
of Rio Cuarto on National Hwy. 8. What no one could explain is how the
19 animals could have entered the enormous water tank, bearing in mind
that they first had to cross an electric drover (sic), then a 1.50 meter
tall fence, and finally, "jump" over the tank wall.
- Two days alter, in a field bordering the first one, the
farmhands and owners of the property found a cow that showed the same signs
of mutilations suffered by bovines in ranches of Buenos Aires, La Pampa,
Mendoza, Southern Cordoba, etc. This time, the mutilated animal had given
birth to a calf, although it was stressed that only the mother was affected
in this case, showing burns and precise incisions in different parts of
the carcass, as though experts had deftly used a special type of scalpel.
These cases, according to the statements of a veterinarian named Cumin,
who lives in Sampacho, have been investigated from the onset by specialists
from the School of Veterinary Medicine of the National University of Rio
Cuarto, althought they have not received any report that allows them to
explain what has really happened.
- Those who have dedicated themselves to the possible existence
of other forms of life, of UFOs and their consequences, posited the challenging
possibility that what they term "teleportations" occured in this
case, thus "explaining" how a lot of 19 animals of large size
and weight could have been conveyed by an unknown force from a common and
accustomed place (a cow pen) to a strange one (the interior of a water
tank), an action that is illogical in both method and objective. If so,
these repeated events do away with the efforts aimed at explaining the
events and which lay the blame on both "red-muzzled mice" and
"carnivorous bees" and "cattle rustlers".
- It was acknowledged yesterday that a pasture owner in
La Silleta, Province of Salta, found a dead pig showing the characteristics
of a mutilated animal, lacking maxillaries, tongue or eyes. This
is how veterinarian Juan Carlos Gimenez Monje discussed the subject. He
visited the farm after receiving a call from the owner and added: "I
took the animal over to SENASA in Salta and they sent it off to Buenos
Aires." The veterinarian explains the situation as being due to the
fact that "the agricultural producers stopped using herbicides because
of the high cost, then vermin and wild animals can reoccupy the fields
once more. Agricultural activity," he added, "consists of zero
farming nowadays, and the plough, which used to destroy rodent burrows,
no longer enters the fields."
- What the expert could not explain was how wild animals
could extract the organs in the fashion detailed earlier, with precise
cuts, and further having cauterized the wounds.
