A Woman Has Been Eaten Alive By Pigs She Was Feeding

A farmer has been eaten by the very same pigs she was feeding, after collapsing in their sty.

The 56-year-old is believed to have fainted or suffered an epileptic seizure while feeding the animals in a village in the central Russian region of Udmurtia.

It's understood her husband had gone to bed early after feeling unwell and awoke to find her missing.

He raced out to find her, but it was too late.

It's not the first time a farmer has been eaten by pigs.

In 2012, 69-year-old Terry Vance Garner went to feed his animals in the US state of Oregon but never returned.

His dentures and pieces of his body were found in the sty by a family member, the rest of his remains had been consumed.
