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.

Pro-tip for the Oregon cops suspecting foul play… keep an eye out for this dude.

    Is that hog wearing his dentures? Those look like a little like human teeth (minus the disgusting stains…unless you’re Lindsay Lohan).
