Georgia Sheriff Investigates Mysterious Cattle Mutilations

Authorities in northeast Georgia have a mystery on their hands after cows were found mutilated, with neatly-cut circles sliced into their rear ends.

Harold Edge told investigators he found one of his Black Angus cows dead a few weeks ago.

A Jefferson County sheriff's report obtained by The Associated Press states that Edge found another Black Angus dead Jan. 6, with what appeared to be a half-circle cut around the same area of the animal. Edge told deputies there were no bite marks or indications of animal attacks.
