Tonight on Fact or Faked, http://www.syfy.com/factorfaked/ The team investigated the now infamous case of cattle mutilations. For those not familiar with this claim [in the US], it has been around since the 1960s. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cattle_mutilation One key idea was tested that can apparently account for the alleged "surgical" incisions found: Bloating causes the skin to rip leaving a very surgical-like cut. This was tested using an air bladder and a piece of cow hide. The results were very convincing. This is the first realistic explanation for the "surgical" cuts that I have ever seen. For a long time this really had people baffled. I don't know if the entirety of the mutilations can be explained yet, but this is highly significant in explaining the physical evidence.
