Texas Woman Killed By Wild Hogs

Nov 25, 2019

ABC NEWS – Christine Rollins, 59, was found dead on Sunday morning outside a home in Anahuac, Texas, east of Houston, with “multiple injuries to her body.”

“It appears that she has an injury to her head that is consistent with a fall, but she also has numerous injuries that appear to be animal related,” the Chambers County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff Brian Hawthorne confirmed the woman died from “exsanguination (severe blood loss) due to feral hog assault.”

The woman was a home health care worker and was caring for the couple that lived at the home where she was found dead, police said.

When Rollins did not show up to their home, the 84-year-old homeowner went outside and found the body.

The sheriff called feral pigs an increasing problem in the area.

“We’ve got individuals that hunt hogs with dogs,” neighbor David Bennett told KTRK. “They put Kevlar on these dogs for a purpose because those hogs are vicious.

And when they feel threatened, they’re coming after you.”

Feral pigs are common across most of Texas with a population of about 1.5 million, according to the Texas Department of Parks and Wildlife. Read more.
