Strange Beast In Ecuador Ripping Cattle Apart
Ghost Theory ^ | July 22, 2010 | Javier Ortega

Posted on 07/28/2010 9:51:33 PM PDT by nickcarraway

A large and mysterious creature is ripping apart cattle in a small village of Ecuador. Although the original article is in Spanish, Google translation tries its best to translate it to English, but fails. So I will paraphrase.

The small community of “La Cuadra” (The block) has seen multiple cattle mutilated and torn apart by something powerful. The ghastly findings are out of the ordinary, even for local known predators. The residents concluded that what ever it is that has killed steer and cows, it’s powerful enough to rip them apart and leave huge, deep prints with large claws in the mud.

Arming themselves with machetes, guns and flashlights a search party was rounded up in order to capture the creature. Upon investigation the residents saw a ‘large black animal move through brushes”. Nearby they found some cattle remains. What are the residents of La Cuadra dealing with?

Talks from the residents point to a possible escaped cougar. Others say that this is just another attack by the infamous Chupacabra.

No photographs of the paw prints have been released, although photographs of the mutilated cattle speak for the shocking attacks. What is stalking the cattle in Ecuador? In order to inflict that kind of damage seen in the photographs, I would have to say that a large cat is on the lose, or a pack of canids are attacking the cattle.

Wow, their cows are small. It could be anything from a bear all the way down to 3 or 4 coyotes.

“large black animal move through brushes”

That would be a jaguar, methinks.

My guess? The cows are being mutilated by gangs of armed peasants looking for monsters in the dark.

Cattle Mutilations? Isn’t it obvious alien activity? Have any humans been abducted and anal probed?

But I, being a mountain mama, see things from a completely different perspective.
