Oregon, U.S. – A 70-year-old man in Oregon was almost entirely devoured by his hogs. Terry Vance Garner was attempting to feed the animals, which, technically, he did.
A few hours later, a family member went to check on Garner. When he entered the hog enclosure, he found Garner’s dentures on the ground. On further examination, the family member then found pieces of Garner’s body, but most of the body was gone, apparently eaten by the animals.
Now the mystery is finding out how exactly Garner died. Or, as Coos County district attorney Paul Frasier put it, figuring out “how Mr. Garner ended up in a position where the hogs were able to consume him.”
Given the state of Garner’s remains, a medical examiner was unable to determine the cause of death. It’s possible that Garner suffered a heart attack and was eaten by the hogs after he died — but it’s just as possible one of the 700-pound beasts pushed him down.
Is it some kind of animalistic revolt… or just the instincts?
The Sheriff’s Office is also looking into foul play, which would mean another human was involved – which version do you prefer?
