incised: Nose, Ear, Eye, Tongue, Rectum/Uterus, Udder.
A cow was found in a big pasture area of four and a
half sections, which is 2880 acres.
The rancher estimated the time of death to be 3 days before they found
her, which was May 31st. I arrived there in the afternoon of June 1st.
Being a long distance from the ranch headquarters, nothing unusual was
seen or heard. My samples are self explanatory. I wrote the name of the
town on each samples as a safety precaution.
Incision on one side of the nose, right ear, right eye, part of the
tongue, rectum/uterus, udder completely, blood sample enclosed. Part of
her tail was lying some 8 feet west of her (hair only). She was facing
East and lying on her right side. There was some hair on the ground about
6 inches away from her body next to the udder. That bothers me, because it
could mean predators were around.
When predators eat at an animal they will eat very little hair, therefore
that is why there is hair on the ground. Also, why is part of the hair
from the tail a few feet away? Who put it there? My trimeter tests of
radiation were negative, compass no reaction. I need a Geiger counter to
make my tests more accurate. I am looking for one.
