Police in Daohugou village, Jianchang county, found the pigs gnawing on human bones after neighbours reported having not seen the 73-year-old widower for two days, the official Xinhua news agency said. Police concluded that the farmer, identified only by his surname, San, had fainted because of excessive heat and lack of oxygen in the building housing the pigs. The sow had been a favourite of San since he bought it in 1999, the agency said. San, who made his living from raising pigs and chickens, had lived alone since his sons left home and his wife died many years ago, it said. - Sapa-DPA

Good info. Note to self: It takes more than 2 days for a sow and her piglets to devour a small human carcass. Buy more pigs.

Never have less than 3-4 adult pigs. Never... Time is everything.

Pigs are even cannibalistic. I remember my gramps having to fight a bunch of them off the carcass of a fallen sibling.

Pig are meaner than hell and they'll eat anything. I've seen a javelina get shot in the hind quarter with an arrow and take off running and once the others discovered that he was injured they started chowing down until we caught up with them. I've seen big wild boars charge three guys that were shooting at it and not stop until it was dead. The whole time it was getting pelted with #8's (we were dove hunting) and after someone finally put it down with some buckshot we counted over 20 hits on it and it got within about 10 yards before it was dispatched. I'd rather face a couple of dogs than one big pig.

I always wondered if this trick really worked or not, seemed kind of iffy. If I were in that "situation", I don't think I'd want to chance the hogs missing somelittle piece. Or having the chips containing DNA scattered all over the hog pen....

Reminds me of my old Uncle Bert. When we would go to a funeral and there weren't many people there, he would lean over and whisper to me, "Son, if there ain't any more than this at my funeral, just dump me out and call the hogs."
