This is a sad story: Man eaten by his pigs.
Still, Terry Vance Garner did leave a mark and I am sure a dark chuckle passed across more than one mind upon reading it.
If you haven't read it, Mr. Garner sounds like a hell of a nice guy who found peace with his porcine pals.
Thing is, the night before BBC ran this story, I'd scribbled this #5MinuteFiction bit about a guy sucking baby back ribs with his girlfriend while they discuss her missing pet pig.
And animals do have a way of showing up in my life (and my writing)—dead or alive.
Thinking about poor Mr. Garner and his pig makes me wonder who has the better sense of humour.
