Woman killed by wild boar outside Texas home

By Associated Press Reporter

A pack of wild boar attacked and killed a woman outside a home in Texas where she worked as a carer.

Christine Rollins cared for an elderly couple at their home in the small town of Anahuac.

Chambers County sheriff Brian Hawthorne said the 84-year-old woman she cared for was waiting for Ms Rollins to arrive on Sunday.

The woman went outside and found Ms Rollins, 59, in the garden between her car and the front door.

Mr Hawthorne said Ms Rollins had a severe head wound and several other injuries consistent with animal bites.

The coroner in neighbouring Jefferson County ruled on Monday that Ms Rollins bled to death after an attack by wild boar.
