A carcass of a pregnant gilt of one year old was subjected for post mortem examination and was due for farrowing after 16 days. The day before death, the gilt introduced her head into the farrowing crate through the lower most guard pipe. After about 1/1/2 hrs of struggle she was released forcefully by the attendants. The gilt died after 2 hours. Based on history, circumstantial evidences and gross lesions the cause of death was ascertained as asphyxia and shock. This investigation detected that the gap of the lower guard pipe was not perfect for which the gilt could enter her head but unable to released her head. Therefore, pig farmers should take appropriate precaution to avoid such type of incidences in the farm.

Keywords: Asphyxia, Farrowing crate, Gilt, Guard pipe
