The United States has been victim to thousands of cattle mutilations since at least the 1970s. Those events brought national attention to the subject and for a period of time even the FBI got involved. What went unnoticed during much of that time is that horses were also being mutilated just not as often as their cattle counterparts. These mutilations have happened in every country on earth, so it was not just a United States ‘thing’, it simply got more attention than elsewhere. France, for example, has seen such a disturbing slaughter in horses that they have begun probes into at least 150 of the grizzly events and you can find out what is happening HERE.
