"Donaldson said she and her family believe Garner succumbed to a tragic accident."

There is nothing tragic about becoming bacon!

Seriously, the guy was 70 (link). To quote from the article I just linked to:

The Coos County Sheriff is investigating how Garner got in a position to be eaten by his pigs.

Among the theories investigators are pursuing:

1. Garner suffered a health issue, like a heart attack, which put him in a position where the hogs could eat him.

2. Given his age and health, one or more of the hogs knocked him to the ground, killed him and ate him. The hogs weigh 700 pounds or more, Frasier said. There are also reports that at least one of the hogs had been aggressive toward Garner in the past.


The first seems more likely, though for his sake I hope he had a severe "health issue" heart attack or a massive stroke that killed him or at least made him very unconscious before the pigs ate him.

It is true that pigs can be aggressive. And predators don't have to kill their food before they start eating it. But that's too traumatic an image to dwell on, so I won't.

"She said Garner is known to neighbors as a man with a heart for animals"

and a spleen, a kidney, etc...

The hogs would have gotten away with it, but somebody squealed.

Besides, if he loved his pigs so much why did he have them butchered? I love my sister but I can wait till she dies on her own before eating her.

Wasn't that part of the book Hannibal? The guy wants revenge on Hannibal Lecter by feeding him to his wild pigs or something?

Hence the expression, "as greedy as a pig".

Vicejay you made me laugh
 
2012-10-03 10:13:07 AM
And for his "tender heart", right?

How many entendres can you spot in this sentence?

"It's kind of prophetic that it happened the way it did," Donaldson said. "He very much loved his animals, without a doubt, and that's where he always said he'd love to pass when he did."

Has he passed yet?

I'm told human flesh tastes like pork. Thus, the joke may be on the pigs.

This is getting out of control. For two days in a row now there have been stories of farmer getting eaten by hogs. When will this reign of terror end?

When you stop eating bacon. Take a look in the mirror there, murderer.

Tasted like chicken! I guess what goes around comes around!

The commentary surrounding this banal disaster is precious. Some damned redneck said the porcine culprit may have been female. Last week a sow bit this same farmer because he stepped on a piglet. Dude, this sh*t writes itself.

Just think of bacon... just think of bacon! Oh Glob! Just think of bacon!!

/Ok... I'm starting to feel better.

When I was growing up in rural Texas the old man down the road from us collapsed and was eaten by his pigs. Afterwards the neighbors got together and shot and burned all of the pigs.

Farmer eaten by hogs 'very much loved his animals

You're doing it wrong.
