Hogs eat Oregon farmer

Hogs are among the most intelligent animals. Is it possible they realized that the farmer was consuming their missing fellow porkers? -CA

BANDON — Coos County authorities are trying to figure out how a local farmer ended up being eaten by his hogs.

“For all we know, it was a horrific accident, but it’s so doggone weird that we have to look at all possibilities,” Coos County District Attorney Paul Frasier said of 69-year-old Terry Vance Garner’s death.

Garner’s remains were found last Wednesday afternoon in a hog enclosure at his farm off Highway 42S, about two miles east of Bandon.

An unidentified family member who had gone out to look for Garner several hours after he went to feed his animals — which included several hogs that each weighed 700 pounds or more — made the gruesome discovery, Frasier said today.

First, the family member found Garner’s dentures on the ground. He then noticed pieces of Garner’s body scattered throughout the enclosure, Frasier said.

Not the pigs I've known. The only thing on their brain is food. You can put a bolt through their pen mate's skull and they won't even flinch.

He may have had a heart attack and the hogs took advantage of the situation.

Hogs are #1 when it comes to biting humans. Pretty sure I read that somewhere.

I'd look into other possibilities though - like junior shot pops while he was in the pen or something.

Yeah, he'd inherit the pig farm--and all the bacon he can eat.

It would be like having dinner with the family - except he'd be eating alone.

Orwell put them up to it. The pigs in there read The Animal Farm and got ideas of rebellion.

Could have been murder. There was a serial killer in Vancouver known for feeding minced bodies to pigs.

Nah, probably just slipped in their pen and knocked himself unconscious. It's well known by farmers around here that pigs will eat a person if given half a chance. Especially if they've been fed meat. They aren't a nice animal.

In the midwest hogs were/are considered quite dangerous. Hog farmers would carry steel gates to keep between themselves and the hog .....if you had a heart attack in the hog pen, bye, bye. eye popping smiley

Had a friend who had a hog of a wife.....kept the steel gate between her and the supper table. eye popping smiley

I remember going to the farm where my brother was born (but not me - the parents moved before I was born) and while we were talking to the farmer one of his big ass hogs took a liking to me for some reason - he kept pushing me around with his snout until I finally climbed up on the fence to get away from him. The farmer said he was just being "friendly" but the damn thing was as big as me (I was 8 or so) - so it didn't seem "friendly" from my point of view.

I am sure it was a female hog who took a shine to you - it got excited in seeing a like-minded soul!

No... kidding. I've been very lucky in the looks department - all my girlfriends were very attractive.

Personalities? That's a different story. eye rolling smiley
