DID SATANIC CULT KILL HORSE?
SASKATOON (CP) - A Saskatchewan farmer suspects a satanic cult
killed his horse and surgically removed its sex organs.
Eugene Zagrodney, 38, of the Rose Valley area, said he
found the family's pet gelding lying in a field Wednesday about
60 metres from his farmhouse.
It had an incision from the navel to the hind legs and
its sex organs were gone.
"I suspected cults," he said Friday. "I've talked to
somebody who knows about these cults and he said they probably
mistook it for a stallion and when they found out it had no
testicles it was abandoned.
"The wounds were perfectly clean, there was no jagged
edges," the farmer said. "I used to work in a slaughterhouse
and I've done my own slaughtering, and it had to be a sharp
butcher knife or a scalpel."
Nick Nation, head of veterinary pathology for the Alberta
Agricultural Department, said coyotes are more likely to blame.
In a recently published article in the Canadian Veterinary"
Journal", Nation compared media reports of mysterious wounds on
mutilated cattle with those known to have been caused by scavengers
and finds them to be similar.
