This article is a follow-up to my article Feature Articles: Is Bovine Hemoglobin the "Smoking Gun" in Cattle Mutilation Cases?
published in the June, 2005 issue of The MUFON Journal (© 2005).
As a brief recap of that article, biophysicist Dr. W.C. Levengood of the Pinelandia
Biophysical Laboratory in Grass Lake, Michigan, whose analytical methods involving
crop formations and animal excisions have become the worldwide standard, shared his
discovery of small, black, hardened specks on the chest and testicles at the point of the
excision, which ultimately proved to be pure bovine hemoglobin.
In a peer review,
analytical chemist Phyllis Budinger of Ohio confirmed his findings using the latest stateof-the-art infrared spectral photometer in analyzing the samples. The only known
modern biochemical process to produce pure hemoglobin from human or animal blood is
in a laboratory with chemicals, a centrifuge and strict temperature control.
"It's totally incomprehensible how the hemoglobin could be removed in the
middle of the night out in the middle of a pasture and separated from all the other cellular
components," Dr. Levengood states in his scientific paper "Biophysical Study of Two Bovine Excision Sites at Christmas Valley, Oregon, 2002" © 2002.
For this reason (as well as a laundry list of other elements of the evidence),
Dr. Levengood rejects the skeptic's assertion that "cult worshipers" are to blame for the deed.
"The technology involved is beyond anything currently available," he says. So too does
he reject the theory of predators. "The alterations are not a random ripping and tearing of
the flesh, but rather, they are precise, surgical excisions." For this reason, the term
"bovine excision" is a more accurate description of the scene than "cattle mutilation", for
which the phenomenon is more commonly known.
In Dr. Levengood's scientific thesis, "Consistency in Patterns of Energy Distributions
at Worldwide Bovine Excision Sites" (© 2006), he observes, "there is an energy pattern
infused into the soil and grass in the immediate region around the animal, and extending
outward in a radial manner.
The type of energy applied, increases the thermodynamic
free energy of both the grass and soil. These free energy changes are consistently
observed in most all excision cases examined in this laboratory." This energy pattern
extends outward from two to thirty feet from the carcass.
A well-known aspect of animal excision cases is the fact that other animals refuse
to venture into the area where the carcass was discovered long after the carcass has been
In a recent bovine excision investigation in Boyne Lake, Alberta, Canada,
Dr. Levengood writes, "When the owners arrived in the field, and found the dead cow, the rest of the herd were very upset and ran away from them as they approached. They told me that had never occurred before."
This curious characteristic of the phenomenon could well be explained by the
energies being radiated from the site. This energy may be outside the range of human
perception but well within that of other animals. With the aid of scientific instruments,
these energies are easily detected and help to verify the reason for the animal's reluctance
to enter the area.
An affiliation between animal excisions and crop formations has long been
suspected among UFOlogists and, covertly, some mainstream scientists. Many
characteristics, such as high concentrations of "magnetic particles", are found in both
instances. Biophysicist Dr. Levengood has alluded to this connection for years without
directly making this assertion.
However, recently he has become more candid in his
treatment of both subjects. In the aforementioned scientific paper he writes, "We don't
know why specific organs are excised. Do the bovine organs concentrate certain
elements such as the rare earths [Cerium (Ce), Praseodymium (Pr), Neodymium (Nd),
Samarium (Sm) etc.] that are of importance in the restoration of free energy in the
internal cells of the entities involved?"
Entities involved?! What entities involved?!
Dr. Levengood references the book "Raechel's Eyes" by Helen Littrell and Jean
Bilodeaux (Wild Flower Press, 2005, pp. 96), in which cattle abductions and excisions
are mentioned at length. "This process is described by HL as taking place in 'a vortex of
highly charged light particles, which transports the animal to a waiting spacecraft
The light particles discussed here may have properties quite different
than the light particles with which we are familiar. In our frame of reference, ordinary
light or photons are quantum particles, which do not possess an electric charge."
In the first paper mentioned in this article, he states, "The energy affecting the
plants is of a more subtle nature, giving the impression that it may be an artifact of the
propulsion or internal energy components emitted by the 'UFO' craft." And, "This local
injury effect was not observed in plants at the bull excision site; however, in this case the
energy source (UFO) was at a sufficient height above the soil surface to cause the
induced magnetic field from the ion-electron avalanches to 'pick up' magnetic particles -
thus accounting for the reduction in the level of magnetic particles near the animal as
well as the log-log type of distribution." These statements qualify the energies as being
intelligently directed as opposed to random, natural energies, and specifically mention
"unconventional flying objects".
If there were a correlation between the crop formation and animal excision
phenomena, one would expect the greatest concentration of energies to be found at the
carcass and decrease outward, as is the case with radiation levels detected in crop circles.
However, Dr. Levengood has found that the reverse is true. The greatest concentration of
energies is typically found in the outer ring.
In a telephone interview, Dr. Levengood theorizes that the higher energy levels are
being emitted from the outer ring of the craft. The variance in the outer diameter of the
energy ring on the ground is dependent upon the size of the craft and the altitude from
which the animal had been lowered or dropped.
When asked why he is only now admitting to his acceptance of the UFO and
related phenomena, Dr. Levengood cited his advanced years and the fact that he is tired of "beating around the bush" about it. He has enjoyed a long and respected career within
the scientific community and feels he has the right, as well as the obligation, to publicly
announce his conclusions based solely on the data.
The data should always do the talking; regardless of how far afield from
conventional wisdom the conclusions may lead the investigator. In the final analysis, it is
not a sin to admit that the answer remains illusive. Nor is it (nor should it be)
unacceptable to postulate the extraterrestrial hypothesis as a possible solution.
The UFO hypothesis has been taboo within the mainstream scientific community
since the days of Kenneth Arnold and the Roswell incident. For one to acknowledge
their opinion, that there just might be a more highly advanced civilization elsewhere in
the cosmos that is interacting with our own, was tantamount to professional suicide. A
few courageous souls have done so with disastrous results.
I applaud Dr. W. C. Levengood's candor in doing so. Hopefully such will be the spark that ignites other mainstream investigators to view the subject seriously, resulting in a better understanding of a matter that has long been deprived of serious attention.
In the interim, more and more anomalous evidence, in conjunction with bovine
excisions, is being brought to light that can neither be denied by the honest scientist,
logically attributed to hoaxers, nor explained in conventional terms.
