When she fell on the pen, the pigs started attacking her body. Her face, shoulders and ears were “completely eaten,” and the woman died due to blood loss, as per another report by news.au.com.

Her husband found her body the next day, as he had gone to bed early since he was not feeling well.

“The opinion of forensic experts has been requested in this case,” a spokesman for the regional Investigative Committee said on the matter. The report also cited that detectives have not seen a “shocking case” in recent years.  Katrina Hallare /ra
