Are South Texas Sheep Being Mutilated by Aliens?
Illustration by Monica Fuentes Intelligent life came all the way to Texas to ... check out sheep?
The sheep started disappearing about a month ago from the 10-acre tract of land in Port Lavaca, a small town on the coast near Victoria (which is sort of between Corpus Christi and Houston if you had to find it on a map.) Their owners, Karen and Wayne Daggs, couldn't figure out what was going on, but the flock of sheep dwindled from 21 to just two, according to the Victoria Advocate.
The end of the herd came when the last two barbado sheep, a type commonly used for meat or raised as pets -- the Daggs were attached to some of these sheep, by the sound of things -- were taken from their grazing area. Daggs found the mutilated carcass of one, and there hasn't been a sign of the other. (Hint: This is where the aliens come in.)
On Tuesday, the whole mystery took a turn for the extra-terrestrial when Charles Stansburge, a member of the Mutual UFO Network, came out to investigate the animal deaths.
Stansburge told the Victoria Advocate that he's seen some strange things in his time. Once he went out to investigate the carcass of a horse, its head entirely removed along with its nervous system, he said. There was also a mysterious bag that wouldn't open and an appearance by the all-knowing "men in black" in that case, he said.
