I have it on good account that a biker gang in Michigan (where I'm from), used to do the same thing, but I'm afraid I have no proof.
Still, I tend to believe the incident you talked about was probably not isolated.

Hells Angels To Blame For Five days of rape & Torture
A SENIOR Hells Angels bikie has been accused of leading a gang that raped and tortured a Melbourne woman in a cruel, five-day abduction.
The woman, 39, said she had spent seven years on the run from the gang after they dragged her into a car from a Coburg street in May 2000 and used her as a sex slave.
"Michelle" has alleged a prime figure in the pack rapes was a senior office holder of the Hells Angels.
"I thought they were going to kill me," she said.
"They gave me two choices: a single bullet to the head if I was good or, if not, they would put me through the mincer and then feed me to the pigs."
Despite her complaint to police in December 2001, the case and the alleged culprits have never been prosecuted.
She believes up to 15 men raped and tortured her over five days.
Michelle came forward about her brutal treatment at the hands of the Hells Angels after the CBD shootings on June 18.
The trauma of the attack left her suicidal and in fear of her life.
In September 2004, Michelle, who went to police 18 months after the alleged offences, was awarded crime compensation of $7500.
She still needs counselling.
The tribunal was satisfied an offence occurred even though it could not be prosecuted.
The Hells Angel accused of leading the assault is a member of the East County chapter, which is based in Craigieburn.
This is the chapter where Collingwood footballer Alan Didak is believed to have been taken by accused CBD gunman Christopher Wayne Hudson.
Hudson is not linked in any way to the allegations raised by Michelle.
Since the alleged attacks, Michelle has lived at a secret location, changed her name, and has been too scared to have contact with her children.
In her statement to police, the former stripper says her ordeal began as she walked to the Coburg Leisure Centre and a group of men forced her into a car and drove her to a suite at one of Melbourne's top hotels.
Michelle said she was paraded naked in front of at least six men and then taken to a bedroom and raped by the senior Hells Angel and another man.
She told police that up to two days later she was moved to a yard in Melbourne's northern suburbs and chained and handcuffed in a large shed.
There she lay naked on a concrete floor and was tortured and sexually assaulted for days.
Apart from the several sexual assaults, she stated she had a gun forced down her mouth, and was made to perform sex acts with a dog.
Her torture also included having a steel truck gate placed across her legs before being run over by a ute while her attackers laughed.
Her toe was later cut with an angle grinder and sealed with a blow torch to stop the bleeding.
Michelle said she was fed a base form of drugs while held captive, and she would never forget the men, their tattooed bodies and the AC/DC song played throughout her ordeal - Thunderstruck.
She said she was about to be killed when taken to a caravan park in Campbellfield, where she was rescued by a disgruntled gang member who took pity on her.
The pair fled and eventually headed north in a stolen car before being caught by police.
Michelle pleaded guilty to theft of a motor car, handling stolen goods, possession and use of cannabis and possession of a regulated weapon.
The rapes and bashings left her with hepatitis C, a fractured skull, an injured spine and shoulder, no feeling in her left foot and cracked and missing teeth.
She uses a walking stick because for months after the assault she was too scared to seek medical attention.
A psychological report states she suffers depression, post-traumatic stress disorder and could expect a short life span because of the assaults.
A police source with years of experience investigating outlaw bikie activity has told the Herald Sun that women kept captive in clubhouses were called a "house mouse" by gang members.
He said women were usually chosen for pack rape after getting to know a member.
Police are investigating if five members of the notorious Black Uhlans motorcycle gang-raped a woman, 19, at Lakes Entrance in February.
Michelle said she did not know the men who assaulted her before her abduction, but she believed they knew she was a stripper.
"I can't imagine any human being being in that frame of mind," she said.
"I can't imagine Hells Angels Australia-wide all being like that.
"I haven't been able to have contact with my children. I can't live a normal life.
"We (she and her partner) can't visit family whenever we feel like it. You start to get over the post-traumatic stress and then you see them on the news or making headlines for all the wrong reasons.
"I live in fear on a daily basis. I have to watch where I go. I try never ever to be alone."
No Hells Angels were charged over the alleged assaults. Michelle has made assertions of police corruption regarding officers who dealt with her case.
The case was investigated by the police Ethical Standards Department and the Office of Police Integrity.
But investigators found there was no evidence of corruption and there was not enough evidence for a successful prosecution.
The bikie accused of leading the attack on Michelle said through a worker at his company he was not interested in speaking to the Herald Sun.
This woman reported being abducted, held captive, and raped in 2000 by Hells Angels
who threatened to put her through a mulcher alive and feed her to the pigs. This
happened in Australia, but the interesting part is that this was reported to the police in 2001, and this would have been two years before Pickton was even
charged in Canada, so there would have been no question of whether these bikers were simply copying something that they heard about bikers (Pickton brothers) doing in Canada.
Either this woman's report is true, and therefore feeding women to pigs is commonplace among biker gangs,or this woman has heard of the biker gangs in the B.C. Pickton case, and has
made up or embellished this story to implicate the Australian biker gang.
I would say the latter is unlikely, as the fact that the Picktons had such close
associations with the Hells Angels, and in fact were likely biker gangsters themselves, is not
very well known, and has been largely concealed by media reports.
Another thing to consider here is that the crime was reported to the police in 2001, but there is no mention of when the woman reported that they threatened to feed her to the pigs.
If she specifically reported this threat of being to fed to pigs to the police in 2001, then it is impossible that she is simply fabricating a lie based on things she read on the internet about the Pickton case, because that would have been before Pickton was even caught and charged with the murders.
