    Moved and bumped! :mm:

    Some interesting comments follow that article...smells like a controversy!

    Whatever anyone says, that's a gigantic animal. I'd not like to run across one (or have one run across me, for that matter)! :shocked:

    More details come to light. The beast wasn't feral.

    I don't know how many people here might have seen the movie Princess Mononoke, but this story reminded of me of it, and I was slightly saddened.

    Just a little clearing up here. But Hogzilla is a previous hog which was cought and claimed to be so long and so heavy. This hog was a hog that indeed was larger than Hogzilla :D

    Forgot to mention I do love bacon. (I just dug out some I fried at my Memorial Day sojourn to the desert shack.)

    I love bacon also. It's one of my weaknesses... :rolleyes:

    I think the original hogzilla turned out to be a fake, or at best was unconfirmable. I'd have to check Snopes. This one too sounds fishy as they did not have the beast weighed by anyone. Seriously, if you got something that big don't you think you'd go out of your way to make sure you got due credit for it?

    Hmm, if that hog is just over 9 feet long then that kid is just over 3 feet tall. Somehow I don't think so... I'm smelling fish rather than bacon...

    yeah, I think the kid is not leaning on the pig, but further back from it, while the pig itself is fairly close to the camera... almost the same illusion as someone "holding up" the Tower of Pisa.

    yeha i never noticed that but, that hog is roundish in shape, he couldnt just lean up on it like that. he would have to be practically laying on it for that to work. so strange.

    There are more pics and details about it; this case apparently is real. The pig was actually farm-raised. Nobody would buy it so it was released into the area a few days before it was shot down.
