A shocking incident – The Montreal Daily Post Dec. 5, 1885
A shocking story comes to hand from the county of Huntingdon. A few days ago John Napier, a farmer residing at Coveyhill, got on the spree with some friends. His friends saw him home and deposited him in his farm yard, supposing he would go into his house. Unfortunately, however, he went to sleep in the yard, and his pigs being loose proceeded to make a supper of his nose and fingers, completely eating them off. When he awoke in the morning he presented a horrible appearance. Medical assistance was procured, and he is now progressing favorably.
