    "Hogzilla" photo

    If this article is deemed too graphic by moderators...please feel free to delete it.

    I have no idea if this is true but it appeared in our local newspaper. I have NO idea what type of handgun he used but it must have been a "cannon". The only thing I am sure of is the kid is holding a revolver of some type.

    Hogzilla was true but far away from the size they claimed. Saw a documentary about that case But this one seems an hoax to me.

    i actually know a guy that lives about 50 miles from where the above hog was shot. its true, the hog was actually shot and its a monsterous pig, maybe a world record but........................

    the above photo has been staged. the kid is sitting about 10 feet back from the hog. i have seen another pic where the kid and his dad are standing closer to the hog while its being hung from the bucket of a loader and the hog is considerably smaller looking but still huge. see here:


    course this isnt quite right aswell cause they are still standing slightly behind it

    also the hog was trapped in the wild, placed in a high fence "wildlife refuge" type setting. not sure how big of a high fence area and given the animal i really dont care as they are destroying the enviroment. but chances are that hog saw alot of processed stock type food instead of normal wild feed.

    anyways good for the kid, its the hog of a life time either way. and one less pig in the wild is a good thing

    Ah the hunter pose. That's how all hunters/fishermen/etc do it. You ALWAYS stand/hold the trophy as far in front of you as possible w/o looking unnatural. How else do you think we hunters come up with such great stories?

    lol that hog is big enough there is no staging needed.....had i shot the dang thing i would have got a pic of me sitting on it to prove how big it was and so no one could argue with me over the photo being staged.........however i seem to be one of the few who is looking to accuratly portray what i got

    Well that kid is lucky, if he didn't shot it right it would have killed HIM. Also who gives an 11 year old a revolver with bullets?

    depends on the parents...............depending on where your at its actually very common. i know of ppl who started learning to shoot when they were 4 or 5. my stepdaughter has personally owned a "high powered" rifle since she was 10. its in my safe but it was given to her. it does not get shot by anyone without her being asked first. its more than big enough for deer black bear or hogs and even totally suitible for elk or moose. though on the light side for griz. she also shoots it very well. soooooooooooo depends on the kid, the parents and the area.........

    I remember watching a documentary on “Hogzilla” on the National Geographic channel. I remember that they stated that the pig ate this special feed that a man was using on his fish. It was packed with proteins and allowed him (the guy) to grow one of his fish up to five pounds, which was a record for the species.

    Anyway they dug up Hogzilla from his grave and examined the corpse and took DNA samples. It turned out that the pig was a cross between a domestic pig and a feral pig. They also concluded that the pig was portrayed a bit larger on the photograph (proportion-wise) than he actually was in reality (according to their measurements of the corpse).
