Authorities are investigating how a farmer in the US state of Oregon was devoured by his pigs.
Terry Vance Garner, 70, went to feed his animals last Wednesday on his farm by the coast, but never returned.
His dentures and pieces of his body were found by a family member in the pig enclosure, but the rest of his remains had been consumed.
The Coos County district attorney's office said that one of the animals had previously been aggressive with Garner.

What a horrible way to die. Still I believe that it was a medical failure rather than murderous pig nonetheless.

I also think he died of a heart attack of similar medical event and the pigs just saw the chance for some payback.
He had a worse fate than a heart attack planned for them.

Ew, right out of the imagination of Stephen King... what a sad way to go. Or as some put it, a nasty grisley piece of karma.

"I charge thee in the sight of God, who giveth life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed the good confession; that thou keep the commandment, without spot, without reproach, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: which in its own times he shall show, WHO IS THE BLESSED AND ONLY POTENTE, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS; who only hath immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power eternal. Amen" (I Tim 6:13-16).

Speaking of the allegedly similar taste of pig and human I remember reading that some American Firefighters won't eat Bacon because the smell of charred human flesh is the same as bacon cooking.

This insightful event reveals that pigs just see us as potential meals.

Hogs are a blood thristy animal. Sows will eat their young. So ttue never make a pig farmer mad. You just might disappear.

It could be said his pigs ate him before he had a chance to eat them. Poor guy, how horrible.

I don't see how this can be true, unless the people that they smelled burning were also seasoned and hickory smoked.

Sounds like another "I heard from someone who read that..." kind of story.

My folks raise pigs for a bit.  I think they decided the bacon wasn't worth the danger. Pigs can be really dangerous. I am scared of them. More than I am of gators. I used to know a florida cracker (florida born) who use to hunt them with a bow.  I thought he was nuts.
