* One mini-game in a ''Franchise/SpyroTheDragon'' game involves stopping aliens from kidnapping cattle. Later subverted in a stage where you have to defend a robot city from alien sheep in [=UFO=]s.

* MOO!, a disturbing video by ''WebAnimation/{{Cyriak}}'', features cows being abducted for mutilation and converting their body parts into [[BodyHorror musical instruments]]. The aliens even clone them in test tubes until one turns into an incredibly freaky mutant which spawns more... Mutant cows which fight back with the aliens and team up with them later when another group of aliens invade Earth. Yeah... [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?gl=SG&hl=en-GB&v=f9iIgQN5uZE It has to be seen to be believed]].

* The bonus stages in ''Super VideoGame/SpaceInvaders 91'' are precisely this (shoot flying saucers to stop them stealing cows, or shoot the saucer but not the cow before they fly off the screen with it, bonus for number of cows saved). They still called it CattleMutilation, though.
