Death and KILLER Hogs


I am participating in the Blogging from A-Z Challenge again this year. What is this mysterious blogging challenge you ask? Arlee Bird from Tossing it Out came up with this fantastic idea where bloggers post using consecutive letters of the alphabet for 26 days in April. It grew in numbers, and Arlee now has many helpers. To view other participates of the A-Z event click here.

Odd deaths happen, right? It’s sort of like being at the right place at the right wrong time. My A-Z 2016 blogging journey takes us down the road of Death by Oddity. Come join me. 

K= Death and Killer Hogs

The same hogs that were therapeutic to Michael Garner’s PTSD killed him. Garner went to feed his hogs one morning and never returned. In the search for Garner, they found a body part or two and his dentures in the hog's pen. The coroner could not be sure what killed (hogs or something else) Michael Garner, but having a heart attack in the middle of a hog pen was not ruled out. And the pigs did eat him. Source here.

As a child, I’d been warned about hogs, their size and temperament, and protectiveness over their young. Good thing.

Yikes what a story, but I still like bacon.

HEY YOU ALL, I AM SUPER SICK AGAIN. THANKS FOR STOPPING BY, BUT UNLESS THERE IS A MIRACLE, I WONT BE VISITING YOU TODAY. SO DON'T FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE TO LEAVE A COMMENT. I UNDERSTAND. PRAYERS APPRECIATED, THOUGH.

  1. As a vegetarian I am pretty confident that none of my food has eaten any of my friends.
    I hope you find health again quickly. You have been seen too often lately. Best wishes.

  2. Hi Teresa - yes 'yikes' I won't be giving up bacon either ... what a sad story ... still if he'd had a heart attack perhaps he didn't know.

    Get better ... and take care - cheers Hilary

  5. I probably won't be giving up bacon either, but I'm afraid this story my pop back into my mind when I do see bacon. Hope you're feeling better soon, my friend. Take care. Sending hugs and prayers of healing your way.

  6. I hope you feel better!!!! Take care of yourself and get some rest!!! And what a gruesome way to go. There was a serial killer up in Port Coquitlam, BC who killed hookers and fed them to his pigs.

  9. It's the topic! You need to do a Theme on Birth next time. That will keep you from being sick, which I'm very sorry about and wish you lots of quick healing!

  12. That story doesn't shock me because I know pigs will eat anything. You can feed them bacon and they will eat it!
