The Conspiracy Wiki

Colorado mutilations conspiracy is part of the nation-wide Cattle mutilations that were prolific from 1974 to 1978 in the United States.[1]



Senator Haskell—Colorado, pleaded with the FBI on 11 September, 1975, to open an investigation concerning livestock mutilations in Colorado. The telephone call was documented, with this excerpt:

“Senator Haskell indicated his concern for a situation occurring in the western states where cattle have been discovered mutilated. The bizarre mutilations involve loss of left ear, left eye, sex organ, and the blood drained from the carcass with no traces of blood left on the ground and no footprints
”Senator Haskell repeated his request that the FBI enter the investigation.
”He said he felt this was too big for the local authorities, and the FBI with its resources could come to a solution. He said the ranchers are getting considerably worried out there and he felt if the FBI would just enter the investigation it would have a deterrent effect.”

The FBI thumbed through their list of excuses, and pulled out Interstate Transportation of Stolen Cattle Statute, Title 18, U. S. Code, Section 2311 and then re-explained to Senator Haskell (1) the Statute’s provisions, (2) its jurisdiction under statutory limitations, and (3) that no law was in place.

Senator Haskell was referred to the Criminal Division of the Department of Justice.

Senator Haskell “stated he understood but he wished there was something we (FBI) could do.”[2]


FBI Records: The Vault
“Animal/Cattle Mutilation In the mid-1970s, reports of scattered animal mutilations in western and mid-western states concerned many people. The FBI was asked to investigate, but was unable to do so because of a lack of jurisdiction (except when such mutilations were found on Indian lands). These files consist mainly of press clippings and correspondence concerning the issues between 1974 and 1978.”
