A Texas woman was found dead after pre-dawn attack by a group of feral hogs outside a home, the Chambers County sheriff said.

The Chambers County Sheriff’s Office said the body was discovered in the 400 block of State Hwy 61.  The woman was identified as 59-year-old Christine Rollins of Liberty.

Sheriff Brian Hawthorne said in a news conference Monday that “multiple hogs” assaulted Rollins when she arrived at work, likely between 6 and 6:30 a.m., when it was still dark outside.
“In my 35 years, I will tell you it’s one of the worst things I’ve ever seen,” Hawthorne told reporters.


The sheriff noted feral hogs are a problem across Texas, but attacks are rare.
