Reported in The Washington Post, Saturday, March 6, 2004, page B3: (e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org) 4 Calves Attacked in Frederick; 2 Die Frederick County authorities are investigating an act of animal cruelty after four cows on Gladhill Brothers Road in Monrovia were attacked with a sharp object late Wednesday, a spokesman for the county Division of Animal Control said yesterday.
Two 6-month old calves died of the wounds, which were discovered by the animals' owner Thursday morning. Two other calves - also about 6 months old and about 350 pounds - were severely cut but survived, said division spokesman Harold Domer.
The animals' owner, Aubrey Mullineaux, told authorities that sonmething spooked the 28 animals in his herd about 10:15 PM and caused them to bolt across tha pasture, Domer said.
((NUFORC Note: If two calves survived, our suspicion would be that humans, not aliens, probably were the perpetrators of this crime. Just a guess. Subsequent investigation may resolve the issue. PD))
