|Cattle Mutilation, November 2009. (One of two incidences)
Superior Nebraska Express Newspaper Article Dated Nov 12, 2009. This is one of two bull mutilation incidences in Jewell county. The second was reported in early December 2009. A copy of that article has also been submitted to NUFORC.
TITLE: Bull Mutilated in Burr Oak Pasture
The Jewell County Sheriff’s Department has received a report of a bull being killed and mutilated in a pasture north of Burr Oak. Owners of the bull are Bill and Linda Wilson, Burr Oak. The bull was found by the Wilsons on Sunday.
When the bull was found the animal’s ears, eyes and tongue were among the body parts apparently removed. Blood was not found around or on the carcass. The carcass was examined by a veterinarian and a full investigation begun. The killing may have been part of a cult related ritual, but this has not been proven.
The sheriff’s department learned two days prior to this incident in Jewell County a similar incident was reported near Colorado Springs.
The Wilson’s bull was in a gated pasture with other cows and calves but none of the animals were killed. The pasture is located in Walnut Township, about one-half mile west of the Union Cemetery.
