I have been shown a very interesting police report from 1978 which I hope shortly to bring to the pages of ELLIS C TAYLOR.COM
In 1978 Newquay Zoo in Cornwall, England was attacked by a series of mysterious animal mutilations. The animals included wallabies, black swans and a chinese goose.
Various theories have been proposed, including:
"... three ducks, a goose, a swan and two baby wallabies were found dead in mysterious circumstances at Newquay Zoo in Cornwall; on January 3 it had been reported that their bodies revealed significant traces of radiation. This was being linked to sightings of UFOs in the area. "
The zoo authorities, Cornish police and veterinary services were perplexed and unable to explain the macabre events.
The animals' bodies were found but their heads never have been. In line with other mutilation cases the surgical procedures were just as confounding. The cuts were perfectly precise and in at least one instance there was not a trace of blood.
The police report said that they had considered a Satanic cult connection and had followed this line by ascertaining the moon phases and the ritual festival possibilities.
To my knowledge the mystery has never been solved.
ELLIS C TAYLOR.COM is very interested in this. Did the police notice that most of the murdered animals are uniquely Australian and how numerologically peculiar the dates are?
