October 10, 1999 ­

These unusual cat deaths have been found in West Fort Worth near Interstate 30 between Forest Park Boulevard and Cherry Lane. Humane Society investigators say what happened was not an accident, but calculated cruelty by at least one individual. The strange deaths have included a hanging, a cat that had been skinned, and another that had its tail sliced in two halves down its length.

Cattle Mutilation Report from St. Paul, Alberta, Canada

October 5, 1999  St. Paul, Alberta, Canada ­ Fern Belzil, a Canadian investigator of unusual phenomena, e-mailed me the following report and photographs about a June 1999 unusual cattle death and gave permission to post it at earthfiles.com.

Fern Belzil, Mutilation Investigator, St. Paul, Alberta, Canada: "This is a report of a mutilation that took place only ten kilometers from St. Paul and fifteen kilometers from my ranch.

This was a Hereford Simmental cross herd bull reported to me on June 6, 1999. The rancher and his son estimated that the bull had died about 24 hours before they found him. It took some time to find him because (the bull) was mutilated in the bush among willows and poplar trees. They phoned me as soon as they found him and I was on site to investigate within an hour. By then, the bull was starting to swell up, but had not decayed nor was there a foul smell as yet.

Unusual Cat Deaths from London to San Jose, California

October 3, 1999  San Jose, California ­ When I was in England this summer for the total solar eclipse and to study the crop formations in Wiltshire, I learned that over the past year the London Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has received dozens of reports from residents who have found on their sidewalks or front yards their cats and rabbits disemboweled, cut in half and even decapitated. And usually without blood at the site.

Since at least the 1970s, a similar pattern of cat mutilations has been reported in Vancouver, British Columbia; Falls Church, Virginia; Lee, New York; Los Alamos, New Mexico; Ahwatakee Foothills, Arizona; Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; Florida; Tustin, California and now this year since May - in San Jose, California where two dozen cats, a raccoon and a rat have been found disemboweled, cut in half and oddly skinned.

Crop Formations Continue in Canada

September 29, 1999 Acadia Valley, Alberta, Canada ­ A farmer reported that his work crew found a formation in his durum wheat field on September 21st. Researcher Judy Arndt went to the field that day to survey and reported that "the seed was mature, pointing to a date of formation near the date of discovery." The formation consists of a 60-foot-diameter circle connected to two smaller 30-foot-diameter circles.

Could Ancient Microbes in Polar Ice Cause Epidemics?

September 26, 1999  Syracuse, New York ­ The recent encephalitis outbreak in New York City that has killed three people and made fifteen others very ill has now been traced to a microbe called the West Nile-like virus, a bird virus never seen in the United States or the entire Western Hemisphere before, according to the Center for Disease Control. Until now, it's a virus that was only known in eastern and northern Africa and western Asia. Now CDC officials fear the dangerous virus could spread to Central and South America as birds migrate for the winter season and fly south.

How exactly this African and Asian bird virus got to the United States is not known. It might have come in an illegal import of a bird from the other side of the world. But this encephalitis outbreak and the associated human deaths show that when microbes are released into an environment where they have not been before, the microbes can be especially dangerous because what they infect has no immunity against them.

New Photos from NASA’s Chandra X-Ray Observatory

September 24 and 28, 1999 Marshall Space Flight Center, Huntsville, Alabama ­ This week NASA released new photographs from its Chandra X-Ray Observatory launched in July 1999. One surprising image is in the Small Magellanic Cloud, a galaxy 190,000 light years from earth. It's the aftermath of a supernova, a sun that blew itself apart, which looks like a wheel with spokes. The "wheel" is forty light years in diameter.

Unusual Animal Deaths, Part 1: Nevada

September 12, 1999  Battle Mountain, Nevada ­ Recently I received an e-mail from Sergeant Investigator Klaus Altemueller with the Lander County Sheriff's office in Battle Mountain, Nevada. He wrote: "We have been having cow mutilations here for at least the past ten or so years."

I also received photographs of one of those mutilations that occurred on January 12, 1995 from Battle Mountain rancher, Eddyann Filippini. With the photos, she wrote: "It was very wet that day, so it looks like there is blood on the ground. It was the snow and rain on the fresh cuts that pooled where she was laying."
