Texas Woman Killed by Feral Hogs, Authorities Say

According to CBS News, Christine Rollins, 59, who lived in Liberty, was meant to arrive at the couple's house on Sunday.

When the 59-year-old didn't come to the house, one of the homeowners went outside and found her in the front yard between her vehicle and the front door. It's believed she was attacked by a number of hogs due to the bites on her physique, police stated.

"What little research we've found, less than six have been reported in the nation", Hawthorne said.

Animal control, however, may trap and shoot feral hogs within the city limits.

Feral hogs, officially classified as an invasive species in the state, were likely roaming the property when Rollins showed up for work while it was still dark.

He said that the feral hogs had taken over some of the homeowner's land. They are definitely a problem in this county. According to Sheriff Hawthorne, police often assist farmers and ranchers in capturing the pests.

After Rollins failed to arrive, one of the couple discovered her on the ground with numerous wounds. A coroner ruled Monday that Rollins was bled to death after a wild pig attack. "Some of it were animal bites", Hawthorne told reporters.

Neighbor David Bennett told ABC 13: 'We've got individuals that hunt hogs with dogs.

Jim Cathey, an associate director for the Texas A&M Natural Resources Institute, said hogs are stoutly built and powerful when they rear back with their heads.

Rollins leaves behind an adult daughter and two grand children.

Mr Sandles said his mother-in-law wouldn't have gotten out of her vehicle if she had known the pigs were near. I love you maw maw this is a hard pill to swallow I prayed all the way to you hoping that it wasn't true you was gone i love you'.
