Authorities in Oregon are investigating how a hog farmer was eaten by his animals.

The remains of Terry Vance Garner, 70, were found in his hog enclosure Wednesday, according to local news reports Monday.

The farmer had gone to feed the hogs, some weighing as much as 700 pounds, about 7:30 a.m., according to a report from CNN affiliate KMTR. After Garner was not seen for several hours, a family member went to check on him and found his dentures in the hog pen. Other remains were found, but the hogs had eaten most of the farmer, according to the report.

The sheriff's department is looking into the death.

    Movie Name: Snatch. (2000)
    Brick Top: Youre always gonna have problems lifting a body in one
    piece. Apparently the best thing to do is cut up a corpse into six
    pieces and pile it all together.
    Sol: Would someone mind telling me, who are you?
    Brick Top: And when you got your six pieces, you gotta get rid of
    them, because its no good leaving it in the deep freeze for your
    mum to discover, now is it? Then I hear the best thing to do is
    feed them to pigs. You got to starve the pigs for a few days, then
    the sight of a chopped-up body will look like curry to a pisshead.
    You gotta shave the heads of your victims, and pull the teeth out
    for the sake of the piggies digestion. You could do this
    afterwards, of course, but you dont want to go sievin through pig
    shit, now do you? They will go through bone like butter. You need
    at least sixteen pigs to finish the job in one sitting, so be wary
    of any man who keeps a pig farm. They will go through a body that
    weighs 200 pounds in about eight minutes. That means that a single
    pig can consume two pounds of uncooked flesh every minute. Hence
    the expression, "as greedy as a pig".

    Isn't this what the farmer planned to do with these hogs – seems turnabout is only fair play.

      Great flick. The fat dude that was worried about getting the stolen cars seats stained cracked me up.

      Actually reminds me more of "Hannibal", where he got rid of his doctor in this same way.

      Perhaps he had a heart attack first. Being eaten alive would suck
