Cattle Mutilations – The Government Files - Mysterious Universe

New Mexico in the 1970s was anything but serene wine country. Cattle mutilations were rampant and despite the seeming consistencies between each maiming, authorities were unable to explain the cause. Enter conspiracy theorists who were certain that the US government was testing biological weapons on the cattle. If you consider what goes into livestock feed nowadays, we can safely say that not much has changed. Not everything is so mysterious though, at least not if you're Dr. Karl Shuker. In Seeking Glycon - Blond-Haired, Human-Headed, Serpent-Bodied, And Very Talkative! Shuker strips off the mystique surrounding the "serpentine soothsayer," revealing the snake to simply be a python and Alexander of Abonoteichus to merely be a charlatan. Clearly things are never what they seem to be at first glance. The Paranormal: Just When You Thought It Was Safe to Go Back in the Water reinforces this understanding, reminding us that in the search for all things Fortean, we need to distance ourselves from the outcome or risk the loss of our objective reasoning. Research that is intended to serve any purpose other than the discovery of truth must be questioned to within an inch of its life, or else risk becoming a new myth unto itself. (CM)
