    Texas woman killed by feral hogs outside home in ‘unbelievably tragic’ incident:

    Feral hogs attacked and killed a woman outside a southeast Texas home where she worked as a caretaker, according to authorities.

    Christine Rollins, 59, cared for an elderly couple at their home in the small town of Anahuac.

    "Unbelievably tragic. This is a very rare incident, just what little research we have found less than six of these have been reported in the nation," Chambers County Sheriff Brian Hawthorne said.

    Hawthorne said Monday the 84-year-old woman she cared for was waiting for Rollins to arrive on Sunday. The woman went outside and found the woman in the front yard between her car and the front door.

    Hawthorne said Rollins had a severe head wound and several other injuries consistent with an animal bite. The coroner in neighboring Jefferson County ruled Monday that she bled to death after an attack by feral hogs. Texas’ KATU2 reported that the medical examiner said the cause of death was “exsanguination due to feral hog assault."

    Word of the Day: Exsanguination
    Exsanguination: n. bleeding to death. The metaphoric uses of this word are endless, as in “Watch as Senator Clinton’s presidential campaign exsanguinates.”

    Examples of exsanguination in a Sentence
    Recent Examples on the Web

    The black flies that Dr. Currie studies have reputedly killed large mammals when swarming them (perhaps by shock rather than what is delicately referred to as exsanguination).
    — James Gorman, New York Times, "Meet the Bloodsuckers," 28 Oct. 2019
    Both children died of exsanguination — a process that takes minutes, not seconds.
    — Maureen O’connor, The Cut, "The Nanny Murder Trial Is Impossible to Watch and Impossible to Look Away From," 18 Mar. 2018

    Domestic hogs can be just as dangerous. My dad was from Iowa and I heard a number of stories growing up about farmers being killed when they fell down in a hog pen. It would apparently trigger a response in the pigs that there was wounded available and they'd attack. My grandmother would be as nervous as a mother hen anytime us grandkids were anywhere near the hog pens on my uncle's farm.

    I wonder if this poor woman fell down and triggered the attack from these feral hogs?

    All hunters who are able and willing must now deploy to the small town of Anahuac, southeast Texas.

    Very tragic story! But, I’ll go ahead and open Pandora’s (or someone else’s) box, as to rifles and calibers for wild hogs? I shot a wild pig (hog?) in the late 70s with my W70 .270 with handloaded Sierra 130 SBT. And my brother shot his with his Remington M788 in .308 with a handloaded 165 Sierra SBT. Both worked great!

    We were hunting on the company ranch in Matador TX and a big boar came for my buddy. If I wasn’t there to see it I’d have been skeptical. He shot it between the eyes at about 10 Yards. I do love killing pigs! Nothing quite like a line of guns on a big sounder at night using thermals. Like a big kids video game!

    I saw this Anahuac story on local 6 PM news. Earlier this year I saw a story on national news of an elderly lady in Eastern Europe who lived alone having a seizure while inside the pen feeding her domestic hogs with similar end results.

    I took down 2 feral hogs in April with Federal Premium 110 grain Nosler Accubond and 120 grain Federal Fusion .25-06 loads at 80 - 100 yards. Zero complaints regarding performance with either. The Accubond was a neck shot, just missed the vertebrae directly but blew a chunk the size of a 50 cent piece on exit and transmitted plenty of shock to the vertebrae. Hog flopped down on its side and obviously wasn't going to get up, but I gave it a mercy shot to the back of the skull directy hitting vertebrae due to back leg still trying to run after 15 seconds or so from first shot. Great expansion in the short distance of tissue penetrated IMO. No bullets recovered.

    Second hog with Fusion was a bang-flop zero twitching head shot. Hog was nose to the ground, bullet penetrated center top of skull, exited fleshy tissue center bottom of jaw and penetrated chest without exiting. No bullet recovery due to gutless butchering.

    I’m ready! Free pig hunt with meat to bring home! It’s overkill, but I’ll use my .338 WM with my Glock 10mm as back up!

    That’s horrific! I have heard urban myths of things like people being attacked in the pig pen.
    The word exsanguination is not new to me. I worked with a vet as I was in an Ag department. An example is cutting the throat of a sick animal to bleed out so we do not destroy the brain or parts that may be sent for analysis.
    I have had pigs run at me once or twice on foot. Not sure if I was just blocking an escape route or there was another trigger.
    On one occasion I was carrying a .300wm and shot the pig at a few feet. Wasn’t the plan . I owned the .300 so I wanted to Hunt with it it was that pigs unlucky day.
    Another Occassion i shot one of several that wanted to come up the path I was coming down. This time my 7mm-08 Tikka CTR that I was trialling as a handy carry rifle. I found the Yanks would just accept the Tikka the CTR versions would be a good truck rifles. I use it from a vehicle and it’s not much heavier than my others so I carried it a bit.
    None of these pigs stood much above my knee but came at me none the less.
    I want to get familiar with my .375H&H so I will carry that pig hunting just in case there is a next time.

    Hunting and trapping will never reduce hog populations at leas the way it’s being done now. Legal toxicants that have been approved but then shelved work. We have poisons that only kill pigs and can easily be used by landowners.
    Shame it’s come to this!

    Phillip Glass said , "We have poisons that only kill pigs and can easily be used by landowners."

    Phillip, this is news to me.

    A few years ago, a speaker and chief Feral Hog Man for the state of Texas, spoke at our DWWC monthly dinner meeting and cleared the air of several feral hog myths. When he took questions, the one of greatest interest was how to control feral hogs without side effects on livestock and wildlife. At that time, it was agreed that poisoning is the most effective, but there was no pig poison that would not kill other wildlife.
    He also reported that Australia was ahead of most countries in researching pig poisons that were practical to deploy but would not kill other wildlife , humans, or adversely affect plants.
    There were many questions and suggestions, but in all cases, he explained why any proposed solution would not work.

    Can you share with me the poison that you refer to so that I can check it out with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department?

    That’s the world over.
    The process for getting for getting things approved in Australia is slow at best. Maybe for good reason but it is an onerous task and seems to be so much involved possibly due to animal rights etc but there are humane options and if we don’t have an impact on the problem animal the native animals and environment are impacted
    That’s coming from an agency background with industry contacts but nothing moves quickly.

    I'm curious as well.

    I clearly remember the poison grain that was passed out by Texas to address the South American fire ants. It was effective at the time in residential areas, as it was loaded with DDT if I'm not mistaken. My dad stockpiled as much as he could when the last distribution of this occurred.

    Nothing stopped those ants in non-urban areas, empty lots, churchyards, etc. And they have simply become a part of life today in Texas.

    I remember some approach distributing poison bait for coyotes as well, that was ended due to impacts on wildlife other than coyotes. The program instead switched to distributing bait with oral vaccination for canid rabies, with admirable results.

    https://agrilife.org/txwildlifeservices/special-projects/oral-rabies-vaccination-project/

    Maybe a targeted infertility bait for hogs and only hogs would work where such efforts with fire ants failed, but I haven't seen or heard of anything along those lines.

    I suspect he’s talking about Kaput that the Texas Dept of Ag approved, but the backlash from the public overrode that decision.

    Sodium Nitrate has not been approved yet due to non-target deaths.

    As long as landowners can turn a profit selling hog hunts the problem is going to continue. And yes I am a land owner and no I don’t sell hunts. I just want them all dead.

    Now, these damn things are now in my neighborhood, of course no hunting in the city limits.

    As to fire ants the only thing that works is chlordane.
