Cattle Mutilations in the UK?

Back in January of this year I gave a lecture for the Orange County, California chapter of the Mutual UFO Network, MUFON. While there, a member of the audience asked me if there had ever been any reports of cattle mutilations in the UK, where I was born and brought up. When I asked the man if he meant mutilations of animals by what might be perceived as extraterrestrials, he replied: “Yes.” Well, that’s a tricky one to answer.


In my books There’s Something in the Woods and Monster Diary, I discussed a variety of highly disturbing animal mutilation events in the UK. Some of those cases involved sheep. In other cases, cats were the victims. And in a few, horses were the unlucky ones. Moreover, I have also discussed other such incidents from the UK right here, at Mysterious Universe. Here’s one example and here’s another. But, I have to say that all the cases of animal mutilation I came across in the UK seemed to be linked to occult sacrifice, rather than to UFOs, as the links above will demonstrate.

I do, however, have one case in my files that, just perhaps, might indicate a UFO-cattle mutilation connection in the UK. In this case, however, it wasn’t so much a mutilation as an interrupted mutilation. Or, maybe! To this day, I’m still not sure.

At approximately 8.30 p.m. on an autumn evening in 1985, a father and son were driving across the Cannock Chase (a densely packed and huge area of woodland that dominates Staffordshire, England) towards the town of Rugeley, having visited the nearby town of Penkridge to purchase a motorbike. All was normal until they approached one particular area of the Chase that the military used to use as a rifle range.


As they rounded a bend in the road, both the father and son were shocked and amazed to see sitting in the sky at a distance of around one hundred feet – and at a height of no more than one hundred and fifty feet – a large, black triangular-shaped object that was lit up by a series of three lights attached to its underside.

They screeched the car to a halt, jumped out and stared in awe at the incredible spectacle. For a moment, the object simply hung there in utter silence above the silhouetted trees of the forest, and then without warning shot away at an incredible speed. Both father and son looked at each other and then raced back to the car and headed home to Rugeley.

On arriving, the father telephoned Rugeley Police Station to report what had occurred. Interestingly, the police responded immediately and two uniformed officers arrived on the doorstep post-haste. Detailed witness statements were taken from the two men who, significantly, were informed by the officers: “You know, you should never have got out of the car.”
