Herd the one about the aliens and the cattle?
FARMERS are blaming evil EXTRATERRESTRIALS for a spate of gruesome cattle mutilations.
The animals have been discovered in separate fields with evidence of “postmortem” injuries that have left experts completely baffled.
And bovine tinkering has long been a trademark of little green men from outer space.
Daggett County sheriff’s spokewoman Susie Potter said the incidents in Utah were a cause for concern.
She added: “All of the cows have shown evidence of postmortem mutilation, leading law enforcement to suspect foul play.
“The mutilation was definitely not caused by a predator – like a mountain lion or a coyote.”
One local farmer, who did not wish to be named, said he’d seen “mysterious lights” in the sky in the days leading up to the attack.
He said: “I’m totally convinced that aliens are to blame.”
