An 11-year old boy recently shot and killed the largest pig ON THE PLANET.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Hogzilla is being made into a horror movie. But the sequel may be even bigger: Meet Monster Pig. An 11-year-old Alabama boy used a pistol to kill a wild hog his father says weighed a staggering 1,051 pounds and measured 9-feet-4 from the tip of its snout to the base of its tail. Think hams as big as car tires.

If the claims are accurate, Jamison Stone's trophy boar would be bigger than Hogzilla, the famed wild hog that grew to seemingly mythical proportions after being killed in south Georgia in 2004.

I have no clue how that little boy managed to bring down that monster. If this was a movie, he didn't, and that hog is going to get up and EAT that boy.

That thing just doesn't make any sense. I mean, it's the size of a bear.

Update: Oh good. It turns out that this is a fake. Thank goodness!

How ironic!

I was at the Greyhound bus station in Columbus, Georgia - right outside Ft. Benning, on the border of Alabama - the day this story broke and saw this as the headline story on a local newspaper.

Small world.

My disbelief was the same as your's. I just can't imagine that thing wandering around the woods in the wild.


p.s. He brought down the beast with a .50 cal revolver and something like a 3 hour chase - not to mention a massive amount of guts!

It's weird to picture an 11-year old firing off a .50 cal. I mean... in the picture, the gun is half the length of the kid's arm.
