Just look, you bastard! There have been numerous reports of cattle mutilation -- that is, unexplainably dead cows turning up with odd wounds that look to be surgically precise.
Their bodies have been split open, and the soft organs inside have been removed.
10 REAL Photos That Cannot Be Explained
Their eyes, tongues, genitals and anuses may also have been removed. But the most unusual element of all, and the thing that really sets off the Crazy Alarms in people's heads, is that the bodies are always mysteriously drained of blood.
Getty Although the phrase "missing genitals" would drain our blood, too. Clearly, it's vampires. Or else aliens are doing it to study the cows. Maybe satanic cults are committing ritualistic sacrifices. No, wait: It's unseen monsters like El Chupacabra that are feasting on the livestock!
Their results? They found no evidence of anything other than natural causes and the occasional psychopath. No cult activity, no aliens, no monsters.
Getty No missing sisters, no cigarette-smoking men, no hot redheads. Working in the FBI is surprisingly dull. Natural causes that appear as surgical wounds? What about the removed organs? How is that possible? In most cases, scavengers such as foxes, buzzards and other critters that like beef au natural saunter by the decomposing corpse and have a bite or two -- thus the organ removal.
The surgical look comes later, when insects chew at the edges of the wounds. See, flies like soft foods, because flies don't have teeth.
Same reason we go to Taco Bell: no standards and less work. And also much like Taco Bell, they prefer the softer parts of the animal: eyes, tongues, genitals, anuses and the rough edges of those aforementioned scavenger wounds. Also, if the animal's been lying around for long enough or even short periods in the hot sunit'll bloat and burst open, often with very clean, surgical-looking tears.
And then come the maggots, which eat anything they can get their little teeth on. Via The Telegraph We just knew you needed to see this again.Nowadays, a photo can be edited to contain anything. But back in the day, when there were no such technologies or apps or photo editing software programs, if something weird showed up in a photograph, then something weird was going on. These 10 photos are so creepy and haunting and unusual that they simply cannot be explained.
The squadron that appears in this photo is a favorite of people who enjoy conspiracy theories and ghost stories. One of the soldiers in the squadron, the one who sticks out the most, is named Freddy Jackson and he is important because he was killed in a freak accident involving an airplane propeller when he was working as a mechanic.
A couple of days later, the whole squadron got together for this big group photo — and Freddy Jackson is in it. The photo was properly developed some time later, and so it was quite haunting to see him there. When President John F. Kennedy was shot in the head while his motorcade drove through Dallas on November 22,everybody who was there to see their great leader suddenly panicked and took cover.
She can be seen in all existing films of the incident to be holding up a camera, and while everyone else is freaking out and diving for cover, she keeps standing there with her camera, as if she knew not only that Kennedy was going. And then she can be seen walking away. No one has positively identified her yet. This photograph, which was taken at the grand reopening of the South Forks Bridge up in Canada, appears to feature some kind of time traveler.
This guy sticks out like a sore thumb — and he seems to be holding a camera from the modern day. Cameras back then were huge. The one that this photo was actually taken on would have been one of those big, old cameras that have to stand on tripods while the guy gets under a sheet to take the picture. Okay, they might not have been that old. His weird glasses also point to him being some kind of character out of a science fiction story.
He looks like Doc Brown crossed with a modern day hipster and amateur photographer. How do you explain that? It only tended to happen decades ago, when cameras were shooting on film. Peter took a photograph of his wife Diane while she was sitting in the church and praying, and when the photo was developed, there appeared to be a ghost sitting behind Diane. This is one of those horrifying, grainy, old photos that have some kind of freakish apparition appearing in them.
In this one, these friends are just hanging out, innocently enough, and then the Grim Reaper appears to have shown up. But since it is such an abstract concept, and the image of that character captures the terror of it so perfectly, it can be interesting to think about the concept of the Grim Reaper.

It would be interesting to find out when they all died, as well as if some of them were still alive. One day a few decades ago, a man named Jim Templeton was enjoying a day out with his daughter and they stopped by this marshy area where he decided to take a picture of her to capture the memory of the day.
While they were there, neither of them noticed anything odd that was going on in the area of land where they were and no one else was around when they took the photo, and yet, for some reason, in the background of the picture, it looks as though there is a spaceman standing directly behind her.
The picture became so popular and got circulated around so much that Kodak ended up getting involved in the debate and confirmed that the film had not been tampered with in any way.
So, what the hell is going on in this picture? Did the taking of the photograph temporarily open up a portal into an alternative reality where spacemen are just floating around everywhere? And when the flash of the camera went off, we managed to capture a very brief glimpse of that world.
Why was that spaceman there, lingering over some random marsh in the first place? Who knows?Although most photographs and pictures can be very pleasing to your eyes, some photos are mysterious, daunting and even mind-boggling.

The Hessdalen Lights are a spectacular, but unexplained light show, that can be seen various times throughout the year in the skies over Norway. The lights were most active from throughwhen people traveled from all over the world to camp out and see the lights which were said to be visible times per week.
These days, the sightings are down to about times a year. A scientific explanation for these lights remains unproven, leading many to hypothesize that they are caused by alien spacecraft. Other sightings including headlights, mirages, astronomical bodies and aircraft have been noted. However, as of Maysome scientists think they might have uncovered the mystery.
The hypothesis is that the metallic rock inside the mountains, combined with the heavy amounts of sulfur in the river, have created a battery. When ionized gas is created from the fumes, the lights become visible.
