Does anyone know something about the so called Guarapiranga case in Brazil, from 1988, where that man was mutilated in the same case like in those cattle mutilation cases?
Was a good explanation found, i mean something different from “Aliens did it” ?

It was probably done by a pissed off husband who learned his wife had been having an affair with the guy.  LOL

Yeah, I mean, we can’t get carried away by every so-called ‘unexplained’ case. Any claim that some incredible thing was responsible for it is basically an example of the fallacious ‘argument from ignorance’. That is, if we don’t know what caused XYZ, then we certainly don’t know that aliens, bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, the Illuminati, God or Satan caused it.

It does seem strange, at least to me that even after the forensic investigations found that the mutilations were nothing more than nature’s clean up teams enjoying a snack, that people insist on paranormal causes. It should be pretty plain even to someone with an elementary knowledge of nature and anatomy what happened to an exposed body in a natural setting. Or do we just “naturally” still like a good scary story even if we know it’s crap? Are we still sitting around the campfire amusing ourselves with tales of the improbable? Wait a minute! What was that whirring sound over there in the brush? Bigfoot?
