US farmer eaten by his own pigs

Authorities in Oregon, USA, are investigating how a farmer was eaten by his own pigs after his partially consumed remains were discovered on his farm.

Terry Vance Garner (69) never returned after he set out to feed his animals.

A family member found Mr Garner's dentures and pieces of his body in the hog enclosure several hours later, but most of his remains had been consumed. Several of the pigs weighed 318kg or more.

It's possible Mr Garner had a medical emergency, such as a heart attack, or was knocked over, then killed and eaten, the Coos County District Attorney said, adding that at least one pig had previously bitten Mr Garner. (©Daily Telegraph, London)
