COOS BAY, OR (KPTV) -
An Oregon man trying to feed his 700-pound hogs was eaten by the animals Thursday, and sheriff's deputies are trying to determine what led up to his death.Terry Garner, who lived near the rural town of Riverton in southern Oregon, went to feed the animals on his farm at 7:30 a.m. When he wasn't seen for several hours, a family member went to look for him, and found Garner's dentures on the ground in front of the hog enclosure, which housed several of the animals.While searching the hog enclosure, the family member found Garner's body in several pieces, with a majority of it consumed by the hogs, the district attorney said.Now deputies are investigating how Garner ended up in a position where the hogs were able to eat him.District Attorney Paul Frasier said there are a number of possible scenarios, including one in which Garner suffered a heart attack. Another possible scenario is that given Garner's age and health, the hogs were able to knock him down and kill him. Frasier said there have been reports that at least one of the hogs had been aggressive toward Garner in the past.Because of the unusual circumstances surrounding Garner's death, detectives haven't ruled out foul play.A forensic pathologist examined what little was left of Garner's body over the weekend, but was not able to identify the cause or manner of death. For now, Garner's cause of death is listed as undetermined, and his remains will be further examined by a forensic anthropologist at the University of Oregon.

Pigs will do that, on the farm if you are going to have a heart attack don't ever do it in the pigs pen. We had a loose pig in one yard and it went right up to a dead ewe and took one bite. Instantly one side of the rib cage, most of its entrails and about 6" of its spine were gone.
From then on all dead lambs got thrown into the pig troughs and disappeared before my father saw them and got upset.

If you ever want to dispose of a body just throw it into a hog pen and it will disappear.

Pigs are 6 times smarter than a horse but then a mule is smarter than a horse by several times. Pigs are very competitive. Look around in finishing houses and you will probably find bowling balls in there. The pigs will play their version of soccer and it is fun to watch. But as said before, do not turn your back on an old sow or boar as they will try to use you as their bowling ball. You do pretty good as long as you are upright but if you are down you are in for a bad time.

The pigs were overheard saying that humans taste like chicken.
