BRASOV, Romania, March 5 (UPI) -- A small farming town in Romania is reeling Friday after learning angry pigs knocked a farmer's wife unconscious and began eating her.

The Sun of London reported Irma Molnar, 56, somehow fell into the animals' sty in Brasov, and likely frightened them badly.

Her husband, Sandor, found her badly maimed and rushed her to a local hospital where she died.

"Her ears and half her face were missing. Her fingers had also been bitten off," said Dr. Dan Grigorescue.

Her husband was sedated and vowed to destroy the pigs.

"I'll never breed such beasts again," he said.
