Ranchers near Lincoln, Nebraska are experiencing a return of cattle mutilations. The mystery of these mutilations was never solved, despite investigations by law enforcement agencies in dozens of states during the 1970s and ’80s. Rancher Mike Benes says, “We’ve lived here 17 years on this place. This is the first time we’ve had any problems or anything with our livestock.” On April 5th, he found 2 cows and a calf dead in the pasture. “I saw the calf right away because the other cows were all around it,” he says.
