Abstract
We present evidence that a correlation exists between reports of animal mutilation and the emergence of a Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathy (TSE) epidemic in North America....

There are several predictions that arise out of the animal mutilation-prion monitoring hypothesis, since the evidence seems to suggest that mutilations will be followed, years or even decades later, by a TSE outbreak:


(a) That a rather large outbreak of CWD/TSE will occur in the area around Great Falls Montana in the next several years.

(b) Similar large outbreaks will occur in Argentina and in Northern New Mexico in the next few years (the first six cases of CWD were found on and near White Sands missile ground October 2002-February 2003).

(c) In the next year or two, there will be an unambiguous link drawn between CWD and sporadic CJD in humans in the United States.

(d) Even though the state of California has mandated a ban on importing elk and deer from other states, the highly intense animal mutilation (>30 animals mutilated in 5 years) cluster on and near a ranch in N. California, predicts an outbreak of CWD/TSE in northern California in 5-10 years.

(e) In the coming years, as new methods for distinguishing CJD from Alzheimer’s comes on line, there will be a dramatic increase in the incidence of “sporadic” CJD in the population of the United States.

Wow, actually making a prediction based on the theory. That's good, now it can be tested. I am suprised about the statement that the first cases of Mad Cow were found near Whitesands; I thought the first case was detected in England.

That's because CWD (chronic wasting disease) is not the same as bovine spongiform encephalopathy, although both are what is called TSE (transmissible spongiform encephalopathy) CWD is only found in deer and elk, as far as I know.

I notice the paper has references at the end with several references dated in 2002, last year. Well in 2002 there was already a heavy CWD outbreak in Montana and other mountain States. So the great prediction is not one, as far as I can see.

FBI FOIA Files

The FBI FOIA files on animal mutilations.

I remember reports on this starting in the early 1970s.

This thread is from 2003 and no longer meets the posting guidelines for the forum.

i.e. NIDS may only be used for anecdotal claims.
