A Wright County, MO, rancher isn’t taking any chances and has moved his entire herd to a new location after one of his calves was mutilated on July 15, 2014.

“He checks his cattle every day and the other day one of his calves were missing from the herd,” the reporting witness stated. “He couldn’t find it that day, but the next day he noticed a buzzard and went to that area and found the calf in a creek bed.”
The witness described the animal’s condition.
“All the internal organs were gone. It was drained of all blood and there was nothing left but hide and bones. He said there was a smell like a butcher shop has.”
