WHO OR WHAT IS BEHIND THE CATTLE MUTILATIONS?

The cattle mutilation phenomenon is an ongoing mystery that has endured for almost 50 years. What have we learned, if anything, from the countless reports filed? Who or what is behind the death and disfigurement of livestock reported as mutilated around the globe?

Are these deaths simply attributable to natural predators and scavengers? Or is the military/government somehow involved; perhaps monitoring “mad cow disease”? Are the deaths the action of ritual “cultists” as police say the evidence would suggest? Is it possible that alien predators are involved, as some researchers and the media have suggested? Are mystery helicopters or UFOs related to the cattle mutilation phenomenon as many witnesses have claimed? Regardless of who or what is responsible, what are the motivations behind perpetrating what may be the greatest unsolved serial crime spree of all time?

Stalking the Herd addresses these questions in depth and also offers an objective look at the history of our venerated relationship with cattle, among the first domesticated livestock. Is there a connection between these ritualistic cattle deaths and humankind’s ancient practice of animal sacrifice? Why are there no Brahman cattle mutilations in India where cattle are revered to this day? Are aliens gathering genetic material for unknown purposes? What about the thousands of pounds of scientific forensic evidence? Are some hidden sections of the military conducting secret projects that—for some reason known only to them—involve the mutilation of hundreds of livestock and other warm-blooded animals. Are they monitoring the spread of “mad cow” disease?
Stalking the Herd is an in-depth examination and analysis of this complex, multi-layered mystery and this book scrutinizes the various explanations that have been proposed over the years.  

Christopher O’Brien has devoted 20 years to investigating and researching hundreds of these unexplained livestock deaths and assessing the potential implications for humanity. With the help of a handful of unsung “mutologist” proto-scientific pioneers, O’Brien has synthesized an insightful explanation that may help explain this puzzling mystery—a mystery that may have profound implications for our rapidly-growing beef-eating culture.

He is the author of the books Secrets of the Mysterious Valley and Stalking the Tricksters, among others.

"Finally, we have the definitive study and expose of the disturbing phenomenon of animal mutilations. informative, eye-opening, unbiased and terrifying in its implications, Stalking the Herd is not just recommended reading, it's absolutely vital reading. After digesting its pages, you may never want to eat another burger again."
—Nick Redfern, author, The Real Men in Black
"Christopher O'Brien is one of those rare researchers who leave no stone unturned in his search of the truth. Stalking the Herd is a monumental work demonstrating that mysterious cattle and animal mutilations are deeply embedded in human history, with some very strange and shocking twists. O'Brien sets a new bar on the subject, lifting it beyond the ufology arena that has confined it for too long. There are still UFO connections aplenty here, but much more. This is a superb work, and O'Brien has done an amazing job pulling together a mountain of information."
—Rosemary Ellen Guiley, author, The Djinn Connection
"I so respect ad admire Christopher O'Brien for his decades of exploring the cattle mutilation enigma in many "mysterious valleys." His excellent Stalking the Herd is a highly documented, totally fascinating research report. Carefully, painstakingly, he analyzes every theory for the phenomena—E.T's, Satanists, mad scientists, natural predators, and scavengers with preternatural skills. The solution O'Brien offers in conclusion may leave the readers somewhat startled as he explores a dark closet of American culture."
—Brad Steiger, co-author, Real Encounters, Different Dimensions, and Otherworldly Beings
"Christopher O'Brien has been investigating the strange mystery of unexplained animal mutilations for a long time and Stalking the Herd is the culmination of his years of research. While reading this fascinating book, I was amazed at how comprehensive it is, how meticulous its attention to detail, and yet how engaging. I could not put it down. This is the definitive book on the subject, showing how the simple dismissals don't fly, how strange these mutilations really are, and how intelligent public policy is needed to deal with this problem."
