Was Snippy The Horse Murdered By Extraterrestrials?

We've all heard about human abductions by extraterrestrial forces. Throughout the centuries, evidences of close encounters have been documented and almost proven. Yet, until now, the existence of extraterrestrial life forms are still being doubted by some. 

However, as far as documents and evidences go, the first documented case of alleged animal mutilation caused by extraterrestrial beings could be the horse named Lady (also known as Snippy), who mysteriously died way back in 1967.

Was Snippy The Horse Murdered By Extraterrestrials?

According to the reports, Snippy the horse was missing for two days before her dead body was found in a pasture on September 9, 1967. The dead body was in a bizarre condition. The horse's head and neck were skinned with utmost precision, while her internal organs, including the heart and brain, were all gone. What's more baffling was the strange "medicinal" smell of the animal's carcass. There were no blood nor any nearby tracks. Snippy's hoof prints have ended 100 feet from where her body was found. 

A number of people, along with Snippy’s owner and the ranch owners believed, without any doubt, that extraterrestrial forces were involved and responsible for Snippy's demise. Numerous reports of UFO sightings were present in the area during that time. On the day Snippy died, a Superior Court judge and his wife reported that they saw three reddish-orange rings in the sky, moving at high speeds, and in triangular formation.

As reported by Alternative Press on October 5, 1967 regarding the incident:
ALAMOSA, Colo (AP)- Snippy, a 3 year old Appaloosa horse, didnt return to the Harry King ranch for her usual evening drink Sept. 7, and her owner is blaming a flying saucer-or at least a radioactive surgeon. 
The bizarre event, just one of many that has been plaguing the sparsely populated San Luis Valley in the past six months, began Sept. 9 when Began a search for the saddle pony. 
He found Snippy just a quarter mile from the ranch house. There were no tracks about the dead horse, but the animal had been completely skinned. All that remained of the neck and shoulders were bleached bones, but they were still intact and attached to the rest of the body. 
The cut around the neck was completely smooth, not a jagged edge. No blood remained in the horse’s body and there was none on the ground. 
King returned to the site the next day with the horse’s owners, Mr and Mrs Burl Lewis. Nothing had changed except a sickening sweet odor pervaded the area and the exposed bones were a bright pink.
After a search of the immediate area they found what appeared to be 15 circular exhaust marks. They covered an area about 100 by 50 yards. 
A hundred yards north of the carcass they found a three-foot bush squashed to within inches of the ground. The area within a 10 foot radius of the bush had also be flattened to within 10 inches of the ground. 
Near the area Mrs. Lewis found a piece of the horse’s flesh encased in a piece of the skin. It was very sticky, she said, and dropped it. Her hand began to burn and turned red and continued to burn until she washed her hands. 
On another check of the area they found more flattened brush but this time there were six indentations forming a circle three feet in diameter. Each indentation was two inches across and four inches deep. 
By Sept. 23, the neck and head bones had turned black. 
Mrs. Lewis tried in vain to get the authorities to check the incident but most of them told her the horse had been struck by lightning. None of them had visited the area. 
A check of the area by a forestry official with a Civil Defense geiger counter found the radiation count to be high. 
The exhaust marks were radioactive as were the areas where the brush had been flattened. The count lessened however as readings were made closer to the dead horse. 
Many residents of the area have reported sighting unidentified flying objects. One man said his car was followed by a top shaped object and a student at nearby Adams State College said both his rear tires blew out as he approached an object as it sat in a field.
At present, the whereabouts of Snippy's remains is considered a mystery. There were reports that her bones appeared in local museums, abandoned houses, veterinary clinics, and even found its way to eBay. However, there's no further information whether her bones were actually sold or not. 

On the other hand, there are people who believe that there were really no bones to be sold in the first place. According to Jim Brandon, author of Weird America, 'Snippy's skeleton disintegrated “like shredded wheat” shortly after her death'.
