A woman was attacked and killed by a pack of feral hogs in Anahuac, Texas, outside of the home of an elderly couple where she worked as a caretaker.
According to CBS News, Christine Rollins, 59, who lived in Liberty, was meant to arrive at the couple’s house on Sunday. The 84-year-old woman who she cared for was waiting for Rollins to arrive when she went outside and found the younger woman in the front yard, between her car and the front door.
According to Chambers County Sheriff Brian Hawthorne, Rollins suffered from a severe head wound and multiple other injuries consistent with an animal bite.
At first, some suspected dogs, as there are some that roam freely in the area; however, the coroner in Jefferson County confirmed on Monday that Rollins bled to death after being attacked by wild hogs.
“I don’t want to go into detail,” Hawthorne said. “But, in my 35 years, I will tell you, it’s one of the worst things I’ve ever seen.”
The sheriff’s office has laid out traps to see if they can capture some of the hogs, which have drawn complaints in the past due to tearing up neighbors’ front yards.
