It is important to always remember when dealing with animals especially hogs- they’re not always docile or to be trusted. If hungry enough, they will eat anything….
The woman was found by her husband early on February 1st at their farm in a village in the Malopurginsky district of Udmurtia, western Russia.
Report shows that the woman (56 years old) suffered an epileptic seizure while feeding the animals. Upon falling to the ground, she suffered severe bites to her face, ears and shoulders -ultimately dying from extreme blood loss.
The husband of the victim had gone to bed early because he felt unwell and did not find his wife until the next day, according to Moscow-based news website Newstes. It did not say how many pigs were in the sty.
Officials have launched an investigation into the incident, Russian media reported.
This is not the first time a farmer has been consumed by their own pigs. A man in the US state of Oregon was eaten by his animals in 2012.
Authorities found Terry Vance Garner’s dentures and pieces of his body in the enclosure in which he had been feeding the livestock.
Investigators said the 69-year-old may have been knocked over by the animals before they gruesomely ate him.
