Hogzilla: Part Deux


Hogzilla2Back almost 2 years ago we did a story on Hogzilla. It was a 800 pound hog that was found in my state of Georgia. Well, this weekend the next step was hit. An estimated 1,100 pound hog was caught not too far from my home.

The hog hung snout down from a tree Friday in William Coursey’s front yard, not far from where the avid hunter said he shot the beast. He said he hauled it to a truck weight station, which recorded the hairy hog at 1,100 pounds.

The Department of Natural Resources did not know whether the hog was a record for the state. “We don’t keep records on hogs,” said Melissa Cummings of the DNR’s public affairs department.

But Coursey believes his behemoth surpasses the famed super swine shot and killed in 2004 that weighed in at half a ton on the farm’s scales. A team of National Geographic experts later confirmed “Hogzilla” didn’t quite live up to the 1,000-pound, 12-foot hype, saying the beast was probably 7 1/2 to 8 feet long, and weighed about 800 pounds. via the AJC

I don’t know about you, but it is not reassuring to think that creatures this big could be roaming in my backyard. Somedays I would consider my dog pretty brave in a canine kind of way, but if this bad boy came through our woods, I would expect him to run and hide under the bed.

      actually I heard that it was an old hog, so the meat is pretty much inedible. They are gonna cremate hogzilla 2.

      Why kill it? Was it a threat? Lots of hogs live and run wild on the barrier islands of Georgia.

      Ya’ll just think for a minute. If I saw an 1100 pound wild boar in my yard I would run, but I would think seriously of taking that bad boy out.

      Joe Bear:

      The last time I heard anything, it was from a traveling salesman:

      He said that he met a farmer who had a pig with a wooden leg. So he asked about the pig. The farmer told him that the pig was “Some Pig!” He said that the pig was a hero. The pig had saved his family from a burning fire!

      The man said he asked the farmer if that was how the pig had lost his leg… And the Farmer replied,




      Bacon… anyone?

      Yes,Patti you know the joke but you have to strech it out and list alot more things.

      That pig looks familiar….Wasn’t it at a press conference in Aruba?

      See how easy it is to tell…

      I feel sorry for the hog. Animals don’t stand a chance anymore and we then hybridize dogs and cats until you can’t discern whether it is actually canine or feline for the pug noses, abbreviated/truncated features, etc. What did this poor hog do to that 11 year old boy that it had to be shot, sliced at the throat, hung and then photographed for the media and the ghouls who want to look at that kind of thing. I hope the 11 year old is proud of himself for killing something that had been given a life like he had and had done nothing to deserve death, much less at the boys’ smarmy hands. Let’s hope he grows up, and soon, and learns to treat himself and others better…

      Pity the poor kid, his conscience should be killing him right about now…

      stupid people cant u see that this picture is fake

      Janice shut up. damn tree huggers always crying about that stuff. we dont kill animals for fun we do it too eat. so weather or not you would rather have a tree stump for dinner i dont know. all i do know is this pig will taste better than any root you can find even though the meat is not any good.
