Cow Spies

Anyone with an interest in aliens and UFOs will at some point come across stories involving cattle.  Sometimes cows disappear.  Sometimes, the story is more gruesome.  Cattle mutilation is not the most appetizing subject but one which I have not yet tackled and of which I have some ideas.  Do not worry, I will not go into many gory details.  This should be a fun piece to write and hopefully you too will enjoy it.

So what is this all about.  The background, for those who have not looked much into this is, periodically farmers and cattle ranchers will file reports with their local police detailing bizarre scenes of downed or missing cattle.  These events are investigated as if they were a crime scene.  Detectives will comb the area looking for clues.  Reports will be written.

Cows pass all the time, who cares, right?  Yes, cows die sometimes of natural causes.  They get sick just like we do and it is normal to come across a downed cow from time to time.  Also, sometimes a predator will take a cow as a tasty treat.  They like steak as much as we do.  So it is normal for a pack of wolves, a cougar, or some other carnivorous wild animal to take down a cow and devour it.  And in some instances cows are poached by people who simply want some free food, ill-gotten as it were.

Here is the problem.  What makes these cases so bizarre is that the scenarios above do not fit the narrative of what some ranchers discover.  Cows will be found downed without any signs of having been eaten.  There will not even be a single bite mark.  There will be no signs of any disease.  These are typically healthy animals.

Even more strange, though, is the abnormalities which are discovered.  An NPR report on cattle mutilation says cows will be found shriveled up like a raisin without a drop of blood left in their bodies, yet there is also not a drop of blood on the ground.  And these animals may be missing their tongues, genitals, or udders.  Who would do something like this?

Could it be, maybe Satan?

Some people believe this is part of some kind of Satanic ritual.  What the blood and genitals would be used for is beyond me.  But OK, I suppose it is possible.  I have heard stories of goats and chickens being sacrificed to the Prince of Darkness.  But those are small animals which are easy to handle.  And I believe the letting of blood is part of the ritual.  Why would a cow be relieved of all its blood without a drop being spilled?  Oh, and did I mention there are no signs of how the blood is removed?  No cuts anywhere except where items were removed.  And how do entire animals disappear without any signs of carnage, footprints, or damage to fences?

People will dance around the subject of aliens without saying what they believe.  No one wants to be that nut-job who believes in Little Green Men.  But what else could it be?  We know aliens visit and observe us.  We know of countless stories of people being abducted by aliens.  Is it that much of a stretch to conclude that aliens may be interested in cattle?

For me the question is not, are aliens messing with our cows?  That is a foregone conclusion.  My question is, why are aliens messing with our cows?

Why do Aliens Like Cows?

Artist Roger Phillips whom I featured in my story of the Pinebush UFO Fair, makes a living drawing cartoons on the subject, among other alienata.  His work is featured in the Roswell Daily Record, affectionately known as the small town rag of Roswell, New Mexico.  Roger does a lot of cartoons involving aliens and cows.  It is a running gag, and a good one.

I asked Roger about the fascination with cows.  He told me:
I always thought that the connection between the grays and cattle was a humorous one. Why would a species capable of interstellar travel be interested in mutilating cows when they have such advanced technology? Besides, how many cows do they need? Even us primitive humans are capable of growing meat in a laboratory setting! I like to think about the contract that aliens are humorless, cold and unfeeling while my comic aliens have many foibles and weaknesses that we humans experience. 
I guess the only reason the aliens would be interested in cattle at all is that maybe they are distant relatives of man from the future and maybe a glimmer of our primate past still lives on inside them.
I always appreciate a new perspective on a discussion topic.  But we are still not getting to the heart of the matter - or the liver or kidneys, etc.  Why do aliens like cows?

Here is what I think:

Cow Spies

One of my first blog articles was about alien spies disguised as insects.  It was inspired by a hike in the woods with my kids where we encountered some strange insects which all built themselves identical little houses.  Each house resembled a larger insect with huge eyes.  I had never seen anything like it in my life.  What creature was capable of doing something like that?

Alien Insects
What insect builds these houses?
Since I think about aliens quite often these days, I imagined that this was something aliens could do if they wanted to slip into our world and spy on us.  Aliens could disguise themselves as insects and most people would never know the difference between these bugs and any other bug.

This assumes that a species with the ability to get from there to here (wherever that is) would also have the ability to manipulate DNA to transform themselves into Earth-like creatures.  Maybe that is a stretch of the imagination based on current human technology but just think what we could do with another million years of research.  What if people on another planet started this research a million years ago?  Or 100 million years ago!

But why stop there?  Why just insects?  What other Earth creatures would provide the perfect cover for alien spies?  What animals do humans permit to hang out with us?  Who are our friends in the animal kingdom?

Man's best friend is, of course, the dog.  Then there are cats and other house pets.  Understanding Man's complex relationship with these animals would take some study ahead of time - there are pre-requisites to this.  That is Man 400.  We need an animal that is Man 101.  I say that because, picture yourself arriving at Planet Earth.  You just flew 100 light years and you know nothing about this planet.  All you know is what you can observe from your spaceship.  What do you see?

I see cities with millions of people walking on sidewalks.  This must be who is in charge here.  What other creatures do I see milling about in large numbers?  Cows.

Dairy farmers will often have hundreds of cows.  Cattle ranchers may have thousands.  Often times these animals are set out to pasture where they just hang out, munching grass, doing what they please, in close proximity to humans.  If I were an alien and I wanted to spy on the people who were running the place, I might want to dress up as a cow to get in close.

I do not know how one would go about transforming themselves into a cow.  But maybe it involves more than just getting a mouth swab and growing some DNA in a petri dish.  Maybe they need some of the animal's organs in order to understand how it works?  This could explain the mutilation.

Why do they sometimes take just the genitals and the blood?  I am just speculating here, of course, but maybe they are good at growing the animals but they cannot get them started.  The engine cranks but it does not turn over, so to speak.  They need real cow blood to get them going.  And then, once they have a working cow (who, by the way, used to be a guy named Frednork who is now going undercover) they need a faster way to make more cows than the ole' DNA in a petri dish routine.  It is faster to incubate the cows.

Or, maybe it is a combination of the two.  They need the reproductive organs to incubate cows and the blood is used to provide nourishment through some type of umbilicus.

However it works, once aliens can grow cows or transform into them, this would be a pretty good disguise.  They could hang out on the farm and watch us come and go.  They could observe our food production technology up close.  They could listen in on our conversations - who lowers their voices around cows?  On the contrary, a working farm can be a loud place, at times.  Farmers will often need to raise their voices to be heard over machinery and mooing cows.

The alien cows would not have to worry about food and shelter.  They would be well cared for - feedings in the barn or out in the pasture.  A good scrubbing with the hose, from time to time.  "Hold on, what's that?  Are you milking me?  Seriously, guys?  Your hands are freezing!"

Some alien cattle may not fare as well as the dairy cows, though.  They would be like, "Oh, we're going for a ride?  What fun!  So, what's there to do in Kansas City?  Will I get to meet Patrick Mahomes?"  Next thing you know, they are at Peter Luger's in Brooklyn.

Spies?  Really?  OK, it is a huge stretch of the imagination.  What is a more simple explanation for aliens' seeming fascination with cows?  I always like to bring things back down to human nature and draw corollaries between us and aliens.  We are smart, they are smart - maybe we think alike on some things.

What do humans like about cows?  Um... they are yummy.  Sorry vegetarian readers, give me a moment here - in fact, just scroll down to the next article.  I love beef.  I like a nice steak.  I am a sucker for a fast food hamburger - does not really matter from where, they are all about the same, although I do wish In-n-Out would expand to the East Coast.  Maybe aliens like beef too!  Maybe they love a tender, juicy steak.

Aliens may take this a step further.  In parts of Asia, people eat blood soup and have other uses for blood.  Some people in other parts of the world will eat feet and other parts of animals that folks here in the US would turn our noses up to.  It is feasible that aliens like to eat only certain parts of the cow and they have precision tools, much more advanced than a butcher knife, to get at that food.  You have heard of shark fin soup.  How about cow udder chutney?

How do you spot an alien? - Part 3

Today I want to start off with a couple updates.  This blog has been up for a month now and in that time it has received over 1000 page views.  That is fantastic!  Thank you for reading and for sharing my posts with friends.

I am thinking of skipping the radio broadcast for now and just producing the podcast myself.  If I had one major sponsor to help foot the bill then it would be a no-brainer.  But without a sponsor I will have to come up with twelve hundred bucks a month for the studio time.  That is not in the cards right now.  At first I thought, if you build it they will come - in other words, if I start broadcasting, surely I will get some sponsors after people hear how awesome the show is.  But I cannot take that chance.  I believe it will happen in the next couple months but for now I will be producing the podcasts at home.

Wrapping up this week, I will conclude with the final installment (for now) of what seems to have been a popular series, based on page views, How do you spot an alien?

Yesterday I focused on how aliens might blend in on our planet by remaining in their natural form and hanging out with Earth creatures that look like they do, like insects, for example.  But if they wanted to blend in with humans they would have to look like us.  Before the how, I want to discuss the why.

Alien Spies

Note that I am not saying Aliens are definitely here.  I do not know that.  I do know they have done drive-bys because I have seen one of their ships.  It was so close to me that I could have shot at it with the M-16 I was holding at the time and it would have been literally like hitting the broad side of a barn.  What I am saying is if they were here, they would want to blend in with humans in order to study us.  

An alien spy would work the same way that a foreign spy would come to our country and live amongst us.  A Russian spy, for example, might come here, start a family, enroll his kids in school, join the local golf club or town pool, whatever any American would do as part of a typical American life.  All the while, he would be reporting information back to Mother Russia.  The spy may not know what his information is used for, only that he is tasked with collecting it.

Back in Russia, the information that is gathered from this spy and, perhaps, hundreds like him in communities all over America, would be used for all sorts of things ranging from military and economic dominance to the annihilation of our society and the occupation of our land.  Only the Russians know exactly where on that spectrum they are.

Likewise, an alien civilization would want to learn whatever they could about us by living amongst us.  They would not want to stick out by being that weird hermit without a job who hangs out in the park, talking to squirrels, and staring at people all the time.

Rather, they would want to look like us and act like us so they could conduct their surveillance on the Down Low.  In order to do this they would have to look the part.

Probably NOT an alien

Russians look pretty much like Americans.  There are different ethnicities there but most of them could be interchangeable with the Melting Pot of nationalities we have in our country.  In fact, if you wanted to conduct espionage on any country, America would be the best place to do it because pretty much any ethnicity could be considered American.  Although, depending on the neighborhood, you would blend in best if you looked European, which Russians do.

America may also be the easiest place to conduct espionage because we have so many freedoms, i.e. speech and assembly.  People tend not to ask questions about people asking questions.

So it would be reasonable that aliens would want to go to America and disguise themselves as white people of European descent.  Not to diminish other races - just from an economy perspective, if you had to focus on creating a version of yourself that looked like a typical Earthling in America you would want to make a white guy.

"Somethin' don't look right, over there."

This would also allow them to draw the least amount of attention from the authorities because, not to get political but let us face it, some white people love calling the cops on black people.  Not so much, the other way around.

Aliens Blending In

So if aliens are here, walking around, going to work, driving cars, putting their kids in Little League, attending Moms Night Out at the Olive Garden, how would you know them from any other typical American?  The obvious signs may not be the right signs.  It would be obvious to say, "That family down the street looks like us but they have a funny accent and a weird way of emphasizing the wrong syllables."  That does not make someone an alien.  They are probably just from Denmark or Sweden.

What about that guy in your office who seems to clam up whenever the other guys start talking about sports?  He knows nothing about the movies you have seen.  He does not seem to know the first thing about American culture.  He dresses like he is auditioning for the remake of Revenge of the Nerds.  That guy must be an alien, right?

Probably not.  If someone was trying to blend in and learn as much about our society as possible, he would make it a point to keep up with sports, movies, and music.  For example, people from other countries think all Americans are just like people in American movies.  They think we all live in mansions, drive Ferraris, and date models, because they watch every American movie and TV show that makes it overseas.  Baywatch was the #1 show in the world for years.  No, really!

Foreigners, especially Europeans, can also tell you more about American Football (NFL) than you can tell them about European Football (Soccer).  That is the sad truth.  So no, that guy in your office is not an alien.  He is your IT Tech Support Help Desk Guy, dummy.  Go over and talk to him.  He is bored and lonely.  And he knows more about everything than you do - like literally everything, except maybe sports and the kind of movies you like.

Bottom line is you probably would not be able to pick out the alien down the block because they are smarter than that.  They would not just plop down a family in your neighborhood, like the Coneheads.

And they would not travel hundreds of light years to get here, only to try to occupy us in one day.  They would spend years, maybe generations, studying us and figuring out how to blend in.  They would raise children who looked like us, who studied our accents and mannerisms and culture, who would then come and raise children here who essentially grow up American.  They would not stick out in any way.  That may, in essence, be what makes them stand out - that they are so ordinary that they are missing that je ne sais quoi which makes each of us unique.

Paranormal researcher Shane Sirois says he has been visited by human-looking aliens who were so perfect that they looked like someone's attempt at making the perfect human.  I am not going down the supernatural rabbit hole that many in the UFO Community subscribe to.  This is my best attempt at a Science-based blog.  But what Shane says about his encounter makes a lot of sense.  Building off that, Alien spies may be identified as people who are essentially flawless, though not necessarily perfect.
