In what police describe as “a very rare incident” a Texas woman was found dead at the snouts of wild hogs.
Christine Rollins, 59 was found at the home of an elderly couple she cared for. According to a report in the Washington Examiner:
The medical examiner believes that Rollins died from bleeding to death during the attack. Chambers County Sheriff Brian Hawthorne said that the cause of death was “exsanguination due to feral hog assault.”
Hawthorne said that Rollins suffered from multiple bites from the hogs and a head injury that appears to be related to a fall.
Hawthorne told reporters at a press conference concerning the incident that “In my 35 years, I will tell you it’s one of the worst things I’ve ever seen.”
According to Hawthorne, less than 6 of these feral hog assaults have been recorded in the U.S.
