Woman killed by wild hogs in early morning attack

A woman bled to death after being attacked by wild hogs when she got out of her car in rural Texas.

Christine Rollins, 59, was attacked in the darkness of early Sunday morning in the town of Anahuac, 40 miles (65km) east of Houston.

Police said Ms Rollins had arrived at the house of an 84-year-old woman she cared for, but when she didn’t enter at the usual time the woman went outside and found her lying in the yard.

There were different sizes of bites on her body, suggesting an attack by more than one hog, said Chambers County Sheriff Brian Hawthorne.

When police arrived they found her already dead, with a coroner later saying she had bled to death.
