Ufology Unplugged - Episode 1.2: Kevin Randle - Cattle Mutilations

UFO researcher / author Kevin Randle (The Abduction Enigma, The Government UFO Files, Case MJ-12, The Truth About the UFO Crash at Roswell) discusses the cattle mutilation phenomenon, which he investigated in the 1970s for APRO.

Having looked into the cattle mutilation stories myself several years ago, I agree with pretty much everything Randle says here. The more interesting take-away for me from all of this is that most of what Randle says about cattle mutilation investigations, and investigators, is equally applicable to every other type of ufological investigation, whether it be "alien abductions" or crop circles... or Randle's own bread and butter, crashed flying saucers. His great failing is the blind spot that he has always had when it comes to that latter subject.

But as Karl Pflock always said, and it is a sentiment that Randle ironically echoes in this episode - belief can be a powerful thing.

So what is your verdict about Chris O'Brien's book:'Stalking The Herd'?

Paul Kimball said...

Haven't read it, and have no intention of reading it. I'm afraid I don't have any respect for O'Brien's work. Never have, can't imagine that I ever will.

Tell us how you REALLY feel, Paul. Your comment illustrates perfectly why the field of so-called 'paranormal' research will never be taken seriously by mainstream academia. Your sniffy, offensive, off-hand dismissal of over 20 years of research places you below the lowly debunker and into the realm of the blinkered non-shaker & mover where you belong. I'm sure Greg Bishop would be horrified to hear of your extreme 'sniffy' prejudice. What have you YOU written lately, dude?
