Oregon Farmer Eaten By Hogs

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(COOS COUNTY, Ore.) -- An Oregon farmer who went to bring his hogs breakfast instead, apparently, became the meal himself.

Terry Vance Garner, 69, never returned from feeding his hogs last Wednesday, prompting a family member to check on him about 2:30 p.m. and call authorities.

“They first found his dentures and his hat, a package of cigarettes, his pocket knife. Then they started seeing pieces of his body,” said Paul Frasier, Coos County district attorney.

Several of the hogs weighed 700 pounds or more, Frasier said.

Authorities do not suspect foul play, however Frasier and the Coos County Sheriff’s Office are investigating Garner’s death.

Frasier said it was unclear when the investigation would be completed.
