Officials: Oregon farmer eaten by his hogs


COQUILLE, Ore. — Oregon authorities are investigating how a farmer was eaten by his hogs.
Terry Vance Garner, 69, never returned after he set out to feed his animals last Wednesday on his farm near the Oregon coast, the Coos County district attorney said Monday.
A family member found Garner’s dentures and pieces of his body in the hog enclosure several hours later, but most of his remains had been consumed, District Attorney Paul Frasier said. Several of the hogs weighed 700 pounds or more.
It’s possible Garner had a medical emergency, such as a heart attack, or was knocked over by the animals, then killed and eaten, Frasier said, adding that at least one hog had previously bitten Garner.
The possibility of foul play is being investigated as well.
“For all we know, it was a horrific accident, but it’s so doggone weird that we have to look at all possibilities,” Frasier told The Register-Guard.
A pathologist was unable to identify a cause or manner of death, the newspaper reported. The remains will be examined by a forensic anthropologist at the University of Oregon.
Terry Garner was “a good-hearted guy” who cared for several huge adult sows and a boar named Teddy, said his brother, Michael Garner, 75, of Myrtle Point.
Piglets were typically sold to local 4-H kids.
“Those animals were his life,” Michael Garner said. “He had all kinds of birds, and turkeys that ran all over the place. Everybody knew him.”
Michael Garner said one of the large sows bit his brother last year when he accidentally stepped on a piglet.
“He said he was going to kill it, but when I asked him about it later, he said he had changed his mind,” the brother said.
Domestic hogs are not typically known to be as aggressive as their feral cousins, but “there is some degree of danger associated with any animal,” John Killefer, who heads the Animal and Rangeland Sciences Department at Oregon State University in Corvallis, told the newspaper.
While pigs “are more omnivorous than other farm animals, (such as) cows,” Killefer called the case highly unusual.
Most hogs are raised until they reach a market weight of between 250 and 300 pounds, while breeding female pigs rarely weigh more than 400 pounds, Killefer said.

You ever raised pigs? I have and some of them can be the meanest sons o' bitches on the face of the planet.

And they can be predatory if you are between them and food or sex or the hole in the fence.

Absolutely. Legion are the innocent cave peeps who were killed to death by wild pigs and boars and the like. If you notice, all the ancient cave paintings of pigs are found inside a red circle with a diagonal slash.

I have and I've watched them dine on the carcasses of mammals. They won't even touch it until rigor sets in. I know they're mean but they're also predictable. They aren't going to eat a man unless he's been laying there dead for an hour.

I have no doubt that people experience death by pig. But, pigs don't hunt people down to eat them. Those deaths are either accidental, defensive, or tramplings.

Back when we used to raise pigs in outdoor lots you would have to retrieve a newly farrowed litter from it's mother so you could give them their shots and stuff. You had to be fast and outsmart her because as soon as you grabbed her baby and it squealed she would be on your ass. Sounds like the dead man in the OP was found in an outside lot. And believe me a momma sow will kill you over her kids.

Old and slow is right. They'll kill and eat shit. They are very cannibalistic. If there is a weak one, they will kill it and eat it. I imagine if you threw a rabbit or something in there they would kill it and eat it.

We had one that got hung up in the fence and was touching the electric fence there. And even though he was electrified half the time and shocking the shit out of the pigs that were trying to eat him, they were still trying to eat him. While he was alive. We had to get him out of the fence and separate him until he got some strength back enough to fight back when they bit him.

So yeah, you throw a dude in there with a broken leg and no way to get out, me thinks he's done. Long slow death, but he's done.

They are mean sons of bitches.

Oh now. Hogs that are well managed are docile creatures generally. Not to say they make a great pet but other than the scenario Mr HogFarmer described of a mother defending her younguns, hogs are pretty friendly creatures.

The meanest sows I ever had dealings with were on the farm I lived on as an exchange student in Denmark. Danish Landrace mommas are ready i an instant to take you out even when you are just trying to feed them. Our Duroc and Hamp crosses growing up were never like that.

I never did find what was rotten in Denmark. I'll always regret that.

ghak99

I'll agree with your Landrace over your Durocs and Hamps, but I'd jump in a pen with a Landrace over a Tamworth any day.

Those were the meanest domesticated pigs I ever messed with. Organizing one of their breed shows is a nonstop bacon fight.


...now that I think about it, I'd guess they came from very similar gene pools.

Tams are bad tempered. But not many folks where I grew up raised them. We had some Spotted Polands in the area, a few Poland Chinas, a lot of Duroc and hams, and a few other breeds scattered about. Tams were bad for getting out of pens at the Illinois State Fair.

Somebody has been watching Hell on Wheels :)

I never tried to feed them guts, but I bet they would eat it. I threw a basketball in there one time to see if they could eat it. I left before they got it flat, so I don't know how they did it, but they ate it.

To be a dick, dad used to pick Musk thistles and feed them to them. They loved them. But they'd bite awhile and squeal the whole time because it hurt like hell.

You got to starve the pigs for a few days, then the sight of a chopped-up body will look like curry to a pisshead. You gotta shave the heads of your victims, and pull the teeth out for the sake of the piggies' digestion. You could do this afterwards, of course, but you don't want to go sievin' through pig shit, now do you? They will go through bone like butter. You need at least sixteen pigs to finish the job in one sitting, so be wary of any man who keeps a pig farm. They will go through a body that weighs 200 pounds in about eight minutes. That means that a single pig can consume two pounds of uncooked flesh every minute. Hence the expression, "as greedy as a pig". /Brick Top
