Tragic Farm Incident

Postby Barnyard » Tue Oct 02, 2012 10:51 am

I don't know if this should go here or in the safety forum.

It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Heads up Boss.
You're smarter than that though. :-)
Best,

I read this - I thought it was going to be about a tractor accident. This is way to weird - I'm gonna have to talk to Dad to see in his 94 years he's ever heard of such a thing.

Why do you think there used to be so many hog lots in Chicago and Kansas City.

700 lb hogs, that's 3 times the normal market weight.

Hogs to get much larger than 700 lbs. Iowa State Fair has a contest for the largest boar, 1325 lbs in 2012.
I have an excuse. CRS.

It happened here a few years ago, a fellow had a heart attack and died in the hog pen, he was partially consumed when he was found the next day. Pigs eat just about anything.

While I was a Deputy Sheriff worked a missing person/ murder investigation where we had to search a local hog lot. Informant said body was disposed of in the hog lot. Body would have been in lot a week at the time of the search. FBI forensic specialist told us all you MIGHT find are teeth. While searching that lot kept remembering the saying moms step dad always said if you asked where someone was "He fell in the pen and the hogs eat him"

I tried to see the story but it has been removed from the link has been removed.

My grandpa walked with a limp to the day he died. My dad told me he was attacked by a big boar and it nearly took his leg off when he was younger.

Jack:

The link has expired .. most likely because the news organization took it down. Happens after a few weeks.
