On Wednesday morning, Terry V. Garner, a 70-year-old Oregon farmer, went to feed his animals. Several hours later, when he hadn’t returned, a family member went to look for him and found, on the ground of the hog enclosure, his dentures.

"Further investigation of the enclosure revealed that the hogs, which each weighed about 700 pounds, had nearly completely eaten the farmer, although some body parts were strewn about the enclosure."

Yikes!

That’s how they got rid of the bodies on “Deadwood” brought ‘em to the Chinese guy who fed ‘em to the hogs, which I guess he then fed to the people.

(I must not think about this tooooo closely, or I’ll never eat pork fried rice again!)

RIP poor pig farmer.

When our dog licks me, I always comment that she’s trying to find out what I taste like in case she gets the chance to eat me when I’m dead.

Tragic, however a new way has been discovered to dispose of muslim terrorists whereby they are executed and excreted later, much to the nourishment of the soil and also damning their souls forever by being more than exposed to pigs. I think that’s a winner. It’s “green” too.

Hogs can be REALLY nasty & dangerous. I was in a doc’s office once when a guy got carried in by his buddies - he was in dire need of having a butt cheek sewed back on where a hog got him.

They must have gotten to him relatively quick. Hogs can quickly devour without a trace humans if they can get them on the ground.

They revert back to wild literally within days in some cases. Most wild hogs in the United States are hogs that have escaped farms so that should give people some idea. The are the most destructive animal in the United States in terms of economic damage. It is very wise to give them the caution they deserve in dealing with both farm and wild hogs.

Sad, but he probably knew hogs are omnivores, I have to believe he had a medical trauma that incapacitated him.

“Such beasts”? I’d say on average hogs don’t act nearly as poorly toward people as the other way around.

Back in the early 80’s, while attending avionics school, I worked occasionally at a pig farm. It was located on a wooded farm lot that the boars would sometimes get lose into and defiantly wander around in.

The owner had a female Doberman name Kesha that you could call over and just roll into your lap with her paws in the air and rub her stomach.....but, when sent out to retrieve the wayward boar, she was all business. She’d nip the scrotum of the boar upon which he’d whip around in rage and attempt, I repeat attempt, to rectify the situation. Kesha was too fast and remained in range to nip, and nip again until the boar started to panic, bloody scrotum and all.

Eventually the mighty boar was humbled to the point that returning to the pen was the only thing on his mind.

It was a beautiful sight to behold.

One of Hannibal Lecter’s surviving victims plotted revenge by feeding Lecter to a pen full of hogs.

Lecter escaped, but definitely looked frightened.

——Garner’s remains were examined on Saturday by a pathologist who was unable to determine how the man died. A forensic anthropologist at the University of Oregon will also examine his remains.-——

I think he was eaten by a hog ? I know wild guess on my part .... You noticed they don't say coroner

How in the hell are you supposed to determine cause of death with a few body parts left over....

“Bones” is not real life

I’m on a hunting trip right now for wild hogs. Heard some this morning but they didn’t come within visual range. Property owner won’t let me use dogs anymore.

Hogs are evil. They will eat anything that doesn't eat them first.

In the feral state, they run in packs and are truly dangerous and destructive.

Copper on BBCA last night has a similar event -- the copper got rid of the body of the 'bad guy' by tossing it into the hog pen.

There was a reason the farm hands freaked out when Dorothy fell in the pig pen...it had nothing to do with her dress getting muddy.

Alone in the USA and Canada approximately 40 people are killed each year by pigs – six times more than by sharks worldwide.

Raised some hogs off and on...

Had some fat hogs one summer it rained non-stop. I’d fill a 3- bushel spin feeder and rather than spin it they’d just knock it over in the mud.

I went in the pen to pull the feeder and the base was suctioned down (cast iron, had a big cone in the center).

When I finally flipped the base up it revealed about 2 lbs of earthworms seeking dry shelter. Unfortunately, I fell backwards as the base flipped forwards and I was left on my back in the mud with a pile of earthworms between my knees.

There is no sensation I can describe like being stuck in the mud on your back and having hogs inhale a pile of earthworms between your thighs...

What happened next is somewhat unclear but I unassed the area with every fiber of my being.

I remember a news clip shown back in the late 60’s from Vietnam, an Army platoon fired up some VC they caught in a village and one of the villagers let his pigs loose and they started dragging the dead VC bodies around in a rampage.

Heard that about “where’s your Brother” all my life.

Had a neighbor that fed his dead chickens. The sows would hold the bird down with one foot and tear it apart one pull, eat it feathers and all.
