5.0 von 5 Sternen The Most Fascinating, Definitive and Comprehensive Book on Cattle Mutilations 25. März 2014
Von marypinchotmeyer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
You can tell when you read this book that the author has not only done a tremendous amount of research but has many years of direct experience with farmers, ranchers, law enforcement and other researchers at the sites of these very disturbing events. This book is well over 500 pages but there are no fillers or fluff; just well written histories of many mutilation events including unique and creative insights with respect to underlying reasons for these atrocities.
Mr. O'Brien covers all of the theories concerning cattle mutilations, such as aliens/UFOs, military and black ops, criminals and Satanists and depending on the case, one of these may fit like a glove until you move on to the next event, where it does not fit at all. The author also addresses cases that occurred long before the infamous Snippy mutilation in the late 1960s and he puts these events in a cultural context, which causes you to see these activities on a grand scale, leading to some very uncomfortable conclusions.
These events are well documented by local level authorities, owners of these animals and local media but have been ignored by Federal officials and mass media, but you should not ignore them. Animal mutilations are still ongoing with some animals now being found dead high up in trees and there are even some reports coming in of human mutilations.
The book is well written and hard to put down and it has been a long time since there has been such a high quality book on this subject.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Frissonable Material; Good Jumping-on Point 29. März 2014
Von Sue Johnson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book will be of interest to anyone who enjoys solid, considered inquiry into a bizarre and interesting phenomena. Even though the topic of cattle mutilations has a complex history, this book provides the background and specific case descriptions that will engage and provoke anyone curious about paranormal topics.

I tend to be fairly skeptical of claims of paranormal anything because the evidence proffered usually ranges from lame to laughable. It's hard to get that tingle down your spine if you're trying to be polite by stifling laughter. However, this book definitely delivers frissonable material.

Part of it is that the research is really comprehensive. Cattle mutilations are a topic the author has personally been involved in for a long time, so he knows most of the relevant people and research. He also co-hosts a podcast about paranormal stuff and from what he says there I judge him trustworthy as a gatekeeper in the paranormal field.

The book begins with a review of the role of cattle in human evolution, prehistory and history. I found these chapters very informative and thought-provoking, in that wonderful let-your-imagination-roam kind of way. It then moves on to look at possible historical precedents of cattle mutilation as we know it today. This was a little trip down Forteana lane, and one I found enjoyable for its suggestive nature. Next, Stalking the Herd takes up the case of Snippy the Horse, the first cattle mutilation, and the going starts to get seriously weird. The Snippy case study is fascinating in its own right.

Subsequent chapters divide mutilations by decade into the 70s, 80s. 90s, and 2000s. Mostly the US is considered, but there is other countries and other types of livestock appear as well. I found these sections overwhelming. It's never easy reading about living creatures suffering and for me it's never easy reading about mysteries that have no answer at the end.

I haven't finished the last 100 pages yet, so I won't comment on those. My overall impression from this book is that cattle mutilation is a serious issue. Livestock suffer physically and owners suffer economically and probably emotionally as well. Why?

I don't know.

5.0 von 5 Sternen a lifetimes work in one book! 22. März 2014
Von bob watson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Stalking the Herd; A book review.
In the past I have had the pleasure of reading one other Book by Chris O’Brien “Secrets of the Mysterious Valley”. “Stalking” reads very much like the former text. Mr O’Brien work is not so much an investigation it is a journey. While reading “stalking I pictured myself standing in a muddy field with Mr O’Brien. The Book is amazing the work of a lifetime. From the opening chapters where he investigates the earliest cases delving into mans relationship with bovines from the religious caste of India going forward to the Bible and beyond. Then he delves into the mutilations. From early history to Snippy. (Lady) I found the chapter on Snippy to be well researched. Mr O'Brien then spends many chapters on each decade. Highlighting major cases. For the mundane to the truly bizarre. Wraping it all up in as he puts it “”A current and cultural subtext.” “Stalking the Herd is an amazing work. It had deepened my Respect for Mr O’Brien and his work. It is a book the DEMANDS multiple readings. The book is easy to read with no “jargon” to confuse the reader.
In short if you have an interest in the subject of cattle mutilations this is the Book for you unlike others who study this Mr O'Brien dose not try to force one solution on the reader.
Instead he presents new possibility a call to action and a promise of a follow up book.
FINAL RATING
9.75/10
extremely well written, well researched and easy to read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Truly Strange Animal Deaths Deserve Serious Consideration 8. Februar 2016
Von JAY BREMYER - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Stalking the Herd, Unraveling the Cattle Mutilation Mystery, Christopher O’Brien, Intro and analysis by David Perkins (Adventures Unlimited, 2014) is a serious 564 page attempt to objectively recount the most significant and interesting reports and literature on strange animal deaths and the efforts by investigators (ranchers, law enforcement, and paranormal researchers) to understand how what seems to be the best know and longest serial crime series in history continues to plague ranchers in the United States and other countries without a single perpetrator having been caught and prosecuted. For well over a decade I have deeply appreciated O’Brien’s other books (particularly the three in the Mysterious Valley series) as well as highly intelligent and articulate articles by Perkins. Whereas with reports of “high strange” phenomenon in general, it’s often hard to separate the wheat from the chaff, O’Brien is careful to simply let the accumulated data demonstrate that although simplistic explanations (animal predation, for instance) certainly account for many and perhaps most of the reports, nevertheless it is absolutely clear that many, perhaps thousands, of the reports since the early 1970s are of strange deaths that are not only the result of criminal activity but profoundly disturbing. Covert government or corporate testing of soft mammal flesh to monitor prevalence of contamination? Perhaps, and yet some evidence points in other directions like cult activity. What then? Aliens? Or are the perpetrators using stories of aliens to throw us off the scent? These are serious questions approached with disciplined effort to see beyond his own prejudices and unexamined assumptions. It’s well worth slogging through the huge amount of data before getting to the cautions review of attempts to unravel the crime and understand the mystery. I am, I must say, most alarmed by the possibility that our meat supply has been compromised by nearly indestructible prion infections such as cause Mad Cow and Wasting Disease in bovines, elk and deer as well as Crutzfeldt-Jackob disease in humans -- which, misdiagnosed, may in fact be the undisclosed explanation for what we are thinking of as exponentially increasing incidence of Alzheimer’s. I am certainly looking forward to the next book O’Brien and Perkins are working on, to be called Mute Speak or Stalking the Stalkers, in which they further consider the nature and source of the phenomenon. I highly recommend starting with Stalking the Herd.

5.0 von 5 Sternen We Have Met the Herd and They Be Us! 22. Oktober 2015
Von 0100101011100 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I knew nothing of Christopher O'Brien when I made the decision to purchase Stalking the Herd other than a brief excerpt in a book review. Once I started reading it I literally spent the better part of a day reading it from cover to cover. The first Chapter,' Holy Cow' had me hooked from the get-go, being an impressive example of creative story telling as I have ever read. O'Brien rips right into the animal mutilation phenomena by detailing mankind's long intimate historical connection with cattle, thousands of years of tightly interwoven man/beast interaction. The author's suspicions and conjecture are very refreshing and innovative presenting many new ways of looking at a very old enigma. Armed with an in depth prospective Christopher presents a multidimensional panorama of possibilities that gave me pause to rethink the commonly held preconceived assumptions of most mutilation mystery devotees. From the discovery at Catal Hoyuk / Tassili n'Ajjer in the Algerian section of the Sahara of a connection between magic mushroom/cattle dung symbiosis combined with their use in the sacred worship of cattle in the ancient world is mind blowing. Here I will stop as my babbling certainly cannot do this book justice, it has to be read to be appreciated which I highly recommend ! A fantastic thought provoking ride, worth every penny.
