In other news, after going out to feed his hogs, a farmer in Oregon was found dead and dismembered in the animals’ pen, having been partially eaten by them. It is thought that he may have had a heart attack and fallen down, and then was killed by one of the more vicious hogs. The local authorities have not ruled out foul play, however, and are continuing their investigation.
