A Missouri woman just wants answers — answers to why three of her cattle were mutilated with organs cut off. Without clear clues as to who might have done it, the rancher has said she is not ruling out the possibility of aliens.

Lyn Mitchell of Henry County about 85 miles outside of Kansas City told KSHB-TV that in two cases this month and one in December 2011 she has found cows on her property with reproductive organs and other parts cut out. She described the cuts as precise and without blood, as one might reasonably expect of with such open wounds.

In all three cases, the cows’ tongues were removed. On July 9, Mitchell found one cow with her udders completely removed and again on July 19 stumbled upon another bovine with its heart cut out and teats cut off.

KSHB reported Mitchell saying both the sheriff’s office and a veterinarian examined the animals without any explanations for what might have happened to the cattle, which were kept on an isolated plot of land.

“The more it happens, the more questions you get. And the more you learn, you find more and more things that make you ask more questions,” Mitchell told KSHB.

“Something happened to these cows and it’s not something that you see every day, it’s not in your normal, so something else is going on,” Mitchell continued.

And Mitchell isn’t alone. According to documents from the FBI’s “vault,” there were several cases of animal mutilation in mid-western and southwestern states in the 1970s. One letter described the cattle mutilation at the time as part of “some kind of witchcraft cult” and UFOs were cited as possibilities in newspaper articles as well. In these cases, the animals too were found “completely drained” of blood.

Because of this history and the cases she has experienced, Mitchell has reported these incidents to the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON).

Here are a couple videos of Mitchell explaining the state of the cows in detail to UFO researcher Margie Kay (Content warning: some graphic footage of the dead animals):
