(Newser) – Don't go into the hog pen. A 70-year-old Oregon farmer went to the barn to feed his hogs and never returned. A family member later found a few body parts and Terry Vance Garner's dentures in the pen. Authorities are still investigating what happened, but they believe it's likely the elderly farmer may have had a heart attack, fell, or was knocked down by the hogs, and the animals ate him. One of hogs, which tip the scales at 700 pounds, had recently acted aggressively toward the farmer, reports AP. "What a way" to go, a friend told NBC.
