Argentina: Cattle Mutilations in Santiago del Estero
A cattle rancher from Paraje San Miguel, located in the interior of the Quebrachos department, made known the discovery of mutilated cows.
Place: Paraje San Miguel, Department of Quebrachos
Location: 2 kilometers from the farmhouse
Livestock Producer: Aldo Pineda
Number of Animals: 1
Date Reported: 8 April 2013
Type of incision: “Those of us who live in the country and have slaughtered an animal are aware of the difficulty in removing a bovine’s tongue, since it is necessary to perform a series of cuts to its jaw in order to extract it. Those of us who saw the dead cow could not find an explanation as to how it was missing its tongue, eyes, udders and blood.”
It is worth noting animals with similar injuries were found 6 years ago on this very same field.
