The original comment by Mr. Sinister only said exsanguination, which is blood loss.  That alone does not sound horrific. But "Exsanguination due to feral hog assault" is.  Compared to something like "Disembowelment"which would is always horrific regardless of circumstances (unless you were under anesthesia, I suppose)

 

Anytime I hear "Exsanguination" my immediate thought is a creepy Victorian vampire in a top hat, drinking virgin blood.

I thought wild hogs in North America had trichinosis. 

 

Some, but if you cook your meat it is not a problem.

Farmer 'eaten by own pigs' as horrified neighbours discover bones in his yard

 

A pig farmer is feared to have been devoured by his own pigs after he vanished from his farm in Poland leaving just bones.

 

The man in his 70s lived alone on his farm in Osiek, Lower Silesia, and hadn't been seen since late December.

 

He was likely eaten by the animals between December 31 and January 8, the Gazeta Wrocławska newspaper reported.

 

The elderly farmer had long been abusing alcohol, and when police were called they found his pigs out of their pigsty and wandering freely around the farmyard.

 

Magdalena Serafin, prosecutor for the surrounding district, told the Gazeta the man was last seen alive on New Year's Eve.

 

At the time, he was reportedly fetching water from a well, which was where his bones were discovered by a neighbour on January 8.

 

"We do not know the exact date, but in the period between December 31 and January 8the victim was eaten by pigs," Magdalena said.

How do they know these people died by pigs eating them.  If someone where stabbed in the fleshy bits, and the pigs then ate those very same fleshy bits, how would anyone know? 

 

Also, I'm not a murderer.  I just want to make that clear.

Well, the article I just posted does say he could have had a stroke or a heart attack, and then his body was eaten by the pigs, not that he was eaten alive.

Feral Hogs Are Invading Yankeeland. Northern Friends, Here’s What You Need to Know.

 

Dear Yankee,

 

The South has fallen. Apparently so has Canada. Now an invading army of feral hogs is threatening to come for you. Trust us, we’ve seen the worst down here in Texas. When the hogs arrive up North, you’re in for a porky horror show. Wild pigs are rapacious. Rooting and marauding day and night, they can and will destroy your lawn, your crops, the fairways of your local golf course, and whatever else they run across. Feral hogs were blamed for the recent death of a woman from Liberty. (That’s a town in East Texas, not a state of mind, though we do like to live free in the Lone Star State.) And yes—as the memes foretold—thirty to fifty feral hogs can run into your yard within three to five minutes while your small kids play. It’s never too soon to panic.

 

To help you Northerners prepare for the coming onslaught, we asked a few professionals of the porcine arts to offer their advice, and maybe their condolences.

 

“Lord willing, the pigs don’t get all the way up there into Yankee land, and that we can keep them down here and we can deal with them,” says Wyatt Walton, vice president and hog removal specialist for De Leon-based Lone Star Trapping. His company catches up to 6,500 hogs a year throughout the state, from West Texas ranches and Hill Country subdivisions to the Big Thicket National Preserve. In the past three years, he has trapped 1,200 pigs at the U.S. military’s Joint Base San Antonio. The live hogs are hauled to a USDA-inspected processing facility where they’re butchered and sold to restaurants, primarily on the East Coast.

 

Wild boar can make for a fine meal, but if the pigs are still oinking when they arrive in Yankee land, Walton says landowners should keep in mind that these beasts are incredibly intelligent. Half-measures just won’t do the trick.

 

“If you start throwing little box traps at them because they’re cheap, you might catch four or five and think you’re doing good,” he says. “Well, if there are fifteen pigs out there, you just educated the other ten. There’s only one thing worse than a feral hog, and that’s an educated feral hog.”

 

Walton deploys an elaborate system for catching pigs that involves monitoring game cameras on his cellphone to count the number of hogs in any particular group, called a sounder. He lures them in with a corn feeder and then, over a period of several days, slowly builds a circular pen around the bait, one panel at a time, lulling the pigs into a false sense of security. Then he sends a text message to slam the gate shut, trapping up to 78 hogs at once.

 

“It takes me twice as long to get ’em, but I can get ’em all with one text message,” he says.

 

Walton, who made local and national news when he caught a 411-pound hog in September, says you Northerners shouldn’t get too worked up about the possibility of hog attacks.

 

“As far as Yankees up north probably wetting their britches thinking about these killers coming north, I’ve been around thousands of these pigs, and they want to get away from us just as much as we want to get away from them,” he says. “You’ve got to corner them to get them to want to fight you.”

Anybody want to bet those hogs crossed over from Mexico?

What’s worse is I hear most of them were rapists.

 

There’s a really great Reply All podcast that does a deep dive on this issue. It turns out that simplistic, good ole boy solutions don’t work and in fact, made the problem worse. Shocking, I know. Especially for the @twa crew that thinks these kinds of solutions are always best.

 

The other wild thing about the podcast is just how many sickos there are in this country.
