Christine Rollins: Woman Killed by Feral Hogs in Texas

via Heavy.com
Rollins was a 59-year-old woman who was attacked and killed by a pack of feral hogs in Anahuac, Texas. She was at her job as a home healthcare worker for an elderly couple who live at the house on State Highway 61 in Anahuac, which is about 50 miles east of Houston.

It isn’t clear how the attack happened and whether Rollins fell first and then was set on by the wild hogs, the Chambers County Sheriff’s Office said on its Facebook page. “At this time detectives are unable to determine if she collapsed due to a medical condition and the fall caused the head injury, or if the animals may have caused the fall and contributed to her death,” the sheriff’s office said.

Her cause of death was officially ruled as “exsanguination due to feral hog assault.”

It appeared that Rollins suffered some kind of animal bites and had severe blood loss, according to KHOU11, a CBS News affiliate. Chambers County Sheriff Brian Hawthorne told the station, “I don’t want to go into detail, but, in my 35 years, I will tell you it’s one of the worst things I’ve ever seen.”

Hawthorne told reporters that the scene was so bad when deputies arrived they initially thought a crime had occurred.

Amazing.  I don't understand some Southern states (to include my own) that require a lic. to kill these things.

Feral Hogs are a true menace.  They can't even be farmed for their flesh unless they're properly prepared (or you're killing piglets...but they always seem to have piglets around) and they're hell on wheels to every other form of wildlife.

This is an animal that rates kill on sight status.

God bless this woman, I hope her memory is a blessing.

Now take another look at the pic above.  This is a rural issue but mark my words.  One day a small child will be replaced with that baby doe.  Laws need to change before that happens.  They won't but it should.

Animal rights activists have no real concept of how life is outside of big cities or the dangers posed by wild animals...especially feral hogs.
