July 13, 2007 Council Bluffs, Iowa - The first phone calls I made to law enforcement, ranchers and fellow journalists about the animal mutilation mystery was in early September 1979 - twenty-eight years ago. I was Director of Special Projects at the CBS-TV station in Denver, Colorado, where I produced documentaries, live studio audience broadcasts and news updates about science and the environment. That summer of 1979, hundreds of animals, ranging from cattle and horses to goats, sheep and wild game such as deer and elk, were found with the same pattern of bloodless excisions from their bodies without signs of struggle or tracks - not even their own tracks.
