(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.

And God told Moses and his brother Aaron: "Swine is unclean for you" Do not eat it. Leviticus 11:1 This is truly a sign that God meant what He said. Swine is unclean for you. People from the Middle East do not eat Swine. Jewish people do not eat Swine. Muslims do not eat Swine. Why do we? Walk into a McDonalds for breakfast. Swine Breakfast McMuffin, Swine Sausage Mcmuffin Walk into your grocer's store...Swine everywhere there is meat. No warning. That God said: Swine is unclean for you. While I deeply sympathize with this man's loved ones... Maybe God told the Swine: Man is good for you.

Gross! Did the old guy scream? Did the hog eat his head?Actually, since the hogs would have been eaten by humans anyway,why not a little revenge before the slaughter? It seems fitting.
