Man Freaked out on Dragging Cow!
On September 13, 1994, at around 4PM, one of the strangest UAD cases ever reported occurred near the small northern New Mexico town of Chacon, at the base of Luhan Canyon, in the Sangre De Cristo Mountains and was investigated by Linda Howe. Carpenter Larry Gardea, while hiking up Luhan Canyon to go bear hunting, found a dead, "mutilated" cow. The tongue had been completely removed along with the tissue and hide from the jaw. The rear end had been cored out. This find alone was worth noting, but Gardea's unbelievable experience did not stop there.
As he walked closer to examine the downed animal, he noticed a second cow that was down, but not "mutilated." Suddenly, a loud electrical-like sound started up, that Gardea later described as sounding like a huge "arc-welding torch." The rest of the herd began running down the hill away from the sound and Gardea then noticed another downed cow, on the other side of the fence-line, being dragged backwards up the hill toward the apparent location of the sound. He later described to Linda the terrified, struggling animal as making a sound like it was "being tortured," while being dragged. The witness watched in understandable amazement as the animal appeared to slowly float over the ground and over a shallow trench, heading toward the sound source apparently obscured uphill in a grove of trees. The bellowing cow disappeared in the aspen trees after being dragged almost 150 feet. A shocked, scared, Gardea, not at all sure what to do, fired two shots with his 30.06 hunting rifle in the direction of the sound. The sound stopped. Gardea, by now "kinda freaked out," rushed to the sheriffs office to report the strange event he had just witnessed. His account was actually taken seriously by the sheriffs office and a deputy was dispatched.
After returning with the deputy and examining the area, they found no tracks to indicate the animal had been dragged up hill. They didn't find any trace of the dragged cow, but did find the "mutilated" cow lying where Gardea had seen it. Gardea is positive that the sound-source was somehow dragging the animal, and although they didn't find tracks, they did discover broken branches.
Prior to this happening on September 10th, there had been sightings of a strange aerial object that had been seen by local residents. All around the area of the Sangre De Cristo Mountains, which is the southern edge of San Luis Valley there has been reports of "lights in the skies" and numerous animal mutilations.
