The article reports on a series of cattle mutilations that occurred in Missouri in the autumn of 1975.
Quote from the article:
“ ‘It’s one of those things that don’t make any sense at all,’ said Lawrence County Sheriff Marvin Quade, who has investigated three such cases since Saturday (18 October 1975) in the southwest Missouri county.
A deputy sheriff in Nodaway (county) said four cases of cattle mutilations have been reported in that northwestern part of the state in the last month.
A rash of cattle mutilations were reported recently in 11 western states, with most of them occurring in Colorado.”
