Texas woman killed by group of feral hogs

Texas woman killed by group of feral hogs

The 84-year-old woman she was caring was waiting for Rollins, waiting for Rollins to arrive on Sunday. The woman went outside and found the Rollins in the front yard between her vehicle and the front door.

Jefferson County Medical Examiner Selly Rivers determined Rollins was attacked by different hogs because of the various size of the bites on her body, Hawthorne said. A coroner ruled Monday that Rollins was bled to death after a wild pig attack.

She was attacked after she arrived at work in the early morning, likely when it was still dark outside.

There are at least 2 million feral hogs roaming Texas, according to Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service.

Jim Cathey, an associate director for the Texas A&M Natural Resources Institute, said hogs are stoutly built and powerful when they rear back with their heads.

Feral hogs had lately taken over a few of the Four-hectare property, officers stated.

Her body was found between her vehicle and the front door of the home, he said. He said their homes became like her own.

Sandles said she was like family to the people she cared for.

"She's very, very cautious", he said.

Bodenchuk said it's estimated that of the about 6 million feral hogs in the USA, about 3 million are in Texas.

Rollins had been taking care of the couple for two years.

Wild boars are a problem throughout the state of Texas, as they damage land and attack livestock. But Texarkana ordinances prohibit any hunting in the city.

As police investigated the incident, neighbors suspected Rollins died of a hog attack after the animals had become a become a nuisance in their community, according to the Houston Chronicle. "Some of it were animal bites", Hawthorne informed reporters.
