Found in rural Iowa, of all places, the Cow Killer certainly lives up to its name. It is known to brutally kill and eat livestock.


The Cow Killer is described as bipedal, shaped like a T. rex or other carnivorous dinosaur, and having red scales. The Cow Killer's arms are small and almost vestigial, and each eye has a horn jutting out from above it. Including the tail, the Cow Killer is 20-25 feet long.


James Rider, a farmer outside of Ames, Iowa, saw the Cow Killer on July 15, 2001. While counting his cattle (to ensure none had escaped), he came across a large footprint, shaped like an unusually large bird track. Gun in hand, he followed the tracks. The tracks eventually led off his farm, and into a forest. He continued to follow the tracks until the ground dried up to the point it could no longer make footprints. Rider continued a little farther, but didn't find any new prints, so turned around to head home.When he did, he came face to face with the Cow Killer. The monster lunged at Rider, attempting to eat him, but Rider dove out of the way. Fumbling with his gun, Rider managed to shoot the Killer in the face. It bellowed in pain, turned tail, and ran. Rider promptly passed out.

Another sighting, this one in July of 1995, occurred 35 miles to the north of Rider's sighting. The sightee, who remained anonymous, claimed 3 of her cows had gone missing. She discovered the mangled corpse of one of them, and didn't know what happened. As she crouched down to inspect the corpse, she heard a tremendous roar from the fields behind her. She turned around and saw a large, red creature charging at her. Screaming, she climbed into her car and drove away. After roughly 5 minutes, the creature gave up the chase.

Possible ExplanationsEdit

  1. The Cow Killer could be a living Carnotaurus, however, they are long extinct and don't live in the right area
  2. The Cow Killer could also be some form of bipedal lizard, with just a superficial resemblance to Carnotaurus.
  3. A new stage of the lizard life cycle.( which would be impossible.)
