Hogs Eat Their Farmer In Oregon [Video]
A 69 year old Oregon farmer named Terry Vance Garner was eaten by his hogs. The question remains, did Garner keel over and die, and the animals got hungry, or did the hogs murder the man who took care of them, and then eat him? Check out the news video.
According to CBS News one of the momma pigs bit Garner after he accidentally stepped on one of the piglets.
Terry Garner was “a good-hearted guy” who cared for several huge adult sows and a boar named Teddy, said his brother, Michael Garner, 75, of Myrtle Point.
Piglets were typically sold to local 4-H kids.
“Those animals were his life,” Michael Garner said. “He had all kinds of birds, and turkeys that ran all over the place. Everybody knew him.”
Michael Garner said one of the large sows bit his brother last year when he accidentally stepped on a piglet.
“He said he was going to kill it, but when I asked him about it later, he said he had changed his mind,” the brother said.
Domestic hogs are not typically known to be as aggressive as their feral cousins, but “there is some degree of danger associated with any animal,” John Killefer, who heads the Animal and Rangeland Sciences Department at Oregon State University in Corvallis, told the newspaper.
