11 Year Old Kills Monster Pig, Larger Than Hogzilla


An 11 year old Alabama boy spent 3 hours completing the hunt of a wild boar that weighed in at 1,051 pounds and measured 9 feet 4 inches. The animal now known as Monster Pig is the largest wild boar ever killed or captured, breaking the record of Georgia’s Hogzilla.


We have covered the original Hogzilla, which is now being made into a horror film,  and the second Hogzilla found not far from my home. This monster is just amazing though. To think that animals this size have been able to grow and not be discovered by humans is hard to fathom.

Jamison, who killed his first deer at age 5, was hunting with father Mike Stone and two guides in east Alabama on May 3 when he bagged Hogzilla II. He said he shot the huge animal eight times with a .50- caliber revolver and chased it for three hours through hilly woods before finishing it off with a point-blank shot.

Through it all there was the fear that the animal would turn and charge them, as wild boars have a reputation of doing. “I was a little bit scared, a little bit excited,” said Jamison, who just finished the sixth grade on the honor roll at Christian Heritage Academy, a small, private school.

His father said that, just to be extra safe, he and the guides had high-powered rifles aimed and ready to fire in case the beast with 5- inch tusks decided to charge. With the pig finally dead in a creek bed on the 2,500-acre Lost Creek Plantation, a commercial hunting preserve in Delta, trees had to be cut down and a backhoe brought in to bring Jamison’s prize out of the woods.  via the AP

      Looking at its snout… this must be Jurine. Yep!

      Perhaps the headline should read: 11 year old monster kills pig larger than Hogzilla.

      Hey Red,

      That thing looks like it came out of “Lost” island eh? Impressive animal indeed! Watch your backyard and kiss Mrs. Red for me.

      Thank goodness someone is hunting the things. Things have been known to evolve into larger species in the absence of predators. We either need to hunt them ourselves, or re-introduce wolves to the southeast.

      If I saw somthing like that in the woods, I would climb the tallest tree I could find…..I would not be shooting at something this size, my weapon of choice would be the fastest pair of tennis shoes sold.

      #1, congrats, you didn’t let a single post go by without mentioning Joran or Aruba in an article that had nothing to do with either.

      I am amazed!

    7. justinsmama on May 26th, 2007 12:40 pm

      WOW! What a kid!

      Rastus~ What a pig.

      Thanks Rastus! I appreciate your opinion very much (…).
      It wasn’t difficult this time… (Don’t know what the English word for this is but in the NL’s we call this – in soccerterminology – an “intikkertje” or an “inkoppertje”; when someone gets the ball after a great pass and EASILY puts the ball in the net.)

    9. Richard on May 26th, 2007 3:14 pm

      Hmmm … an article about a monstrous pig, something that towers over everything else in its vicinity, that makes a statement by its sheer size and bulk …

      something that is a threat to all around it …

      who says this article has nothing to do with JvdS?

    10. Scared Monkeys on May 26th, 2007 3:44 pm

      Sometimes an article about a pig is just about a pig. :)

      Damn, we sure raise ‘em big in Bama, don’t we…LOL?? Texas ain’t got nuttin’ on us :-)

    12. Robert on May 26th, 2007 5:20 pm

      That’s a whole lot of pork.

    13. Crioyo on May 26th, 2007 6:47 pm

      hehehe. I’m seeing an 11 year old with a .50- caliber revolver.

    14. bleachedblack on May 26th, 2007 8:33 pm

      I bet his parents are very proud of him—NOT. The boy spent 3 hours hunting the boar. He was not in danger, and likely eats at McDonalds, so he didn’t need it for food. Sorry I think killing this animal was wrong. The boar could have been relocated if a problem, placed in a zoo(not the best solution) if the boar was destroying property or a danger. Lets not encourage the young to take up guns.

    15. Sherry on May 26th, 2007 8:56 pm

      #14..lets see now..McDonalds serves breakfast which includes sausage. Guess where that comes from?

    16. Maggie on May 26th, 2007 8:59 pm

      I’m an animal lover too,, I’ve took care of different ones until they are able to live in the wild again. Flies and mosquitos are about all I can kill. We have a reserve close to here that takes in wild life. It’s one thing to kill for food or if a person’s life is in danger, but for fun,, I don’t get it.

    17. Sherry on May 26th, 2007 10:17 pm

      Actually I read where his dad is expecting about 800 or so pounds of pork from this hog. So it will be going to food..not just fun.

    18. Susan on May 27th, 2007 9:56 am

      It’s a sport, right, just like hunting deer, fishing, or going on a wild safari in Africa? Wild boar are aggressive and have been known to kill. Way to go junior…a job well done :-)

    19. Rastus on May 27th, 2007 11:20 am

      Hey Robert!

      Thanks for the comment.

      What amazes me the most is that many flinging insults falsely believe they are delivering heat, when in fact, they are just soft tossing. (American baseball terminology). I’ve seen middle school kids that put more sting in their zing.

    20. david r on May 27th, 2007 12:28 pm

      Way to go, Jamie.

      I wonder how many of these things are out there ? I saw one last year as road kill while driving in West Texas, about 2 hrs south of Lubbock. I thought it was a dead cow until I drove past. Nasty looking creature.

    21. Robert on May 27th, 2007 2:35 pm

      Hi Rastus,

      Your welcome,

      What can I say…. Guess my English idiom isn’t half as big as that of the average american middle school kid?
      I can be pretty sharp over here…

      BTW “Soft Tossing”, is that: throwing the ball to soft?

    22. dave e on May 27th, 2007 8:02 pm

      Sherry (comment 17)

      I hope they do eat the pig, otherwise, it’s just disgusting sport.
      However, as an ex-meat eater, I know that such a large pig is going to taste disgusting. Piglets are much more tender and tastier.
      As a vegetarian, I find 3 hours torturing a scared wild boar and slowly killing it an abhorrent act. I hope the animal world gets their revenge. We do NOT need to eat meat.

    23. Maggie on May 27th, 2007 9:03 pm

      Exactly Dave.. I grew up on a farm and for male pigs(boars) if they aren’t castrated, forget eating the meat. Usually when they are that big, the meat wouldn’t be worth eating male or female. People who hunt and fish for food is one thing,,but as you said. I don’t get it for fun. Torturing an animal for sport, doesn’t do it for me, whether he’s ugly or not.

    24. Jon on May 27th, 2007 11:20 pm

      Good parallel to government bills

    25. Brett on May 28th, 2007 9:09 am

      Sacred wild boar? What are you, some sort of muslim or something along with being a grass eating tree hugger?

      There is NOTHING wrong with hunting for food! How do you think mankind has been able to survive and evolve as long as he has? (here’s a clue, it wasnt by being a vegetarian!)

      As a hunter, I agree, sport hunting or trophy hunting is wrong, but putting food on the table isn’t something that should be condemned.

      Wildlife management through well regulated hunting, rogram, we help keep the species from overpopulating any one area, which would be akin to just letting them starve to death.

      This kid should be PRAISED for being so conscientious! He tracked this animal for 3 hours to ensure that it didn’t suffer any longer than it had to.

      If you think about it, the fishing shows, with their ‘catch and release’ format is actually more cruel than hunting, but yet no one is rallying the green brigade against them! Isn’t intentionally tricking some poor schmuck of a fish into biting a pointed piece of metal cruel? On top of that, they then jerk the poor fish out of their natural environment (remember, fish dont breathe with lungs) so they’re basically suffocating while the human RIPS the hook out of their mouth (Provided that the hook is able to be removed at all)!

      And after that, the poor fishie is thrown back into the very environment it didnt ask to get jerked out of, but now its injured.

      You dont think that all the fish that are released after getting hooked like that actually survive do you?

      So, tell again how ‘humane’ ‘catch and release’ is.

      One more thing before you go back to watching Bambi:

      If God handn’t intended for man to eat the ‘poor wildland creatures’, He would have NEVER made them out of MEAT!

    26. Fish Man on May 28th, 2007 11:20 pm

      Wonder how long a pig like that would have to live to achieve that size? And to think an animal like this would have to be shot repeatedly over a three hour period on a hunting preserve to provide entertainment for an 11-year-old brat.

    27. RR on May 29th, 2007 12:05 am

      I’m not completely certain but I think the kid may have shot Rosie O’Donnell.

    28. Juan on May 29th, 2007 1:54 am

      Where is Donald Trump when we need him. I like his metaphors.

    29. AngryPig on May 30th, 2007 5:54 am

      I’m reading this here in Finland where we do(or don’t, who cares..) also eat pork. =) Using a handgun to hunt this huge creature is sick. To let an 11 year old do it for his 15minutes of glory is also sick. He’ll be back inside with his playstation next week. Nice parenting.


      SM: Finland, really?

    30. Shannon on May 30th, 2007 9:09 pm

      Ok, first off I’d like to say that I’m a woman and a deer hunter, so I really feel for the kid. It’s the same old story, women and kids shouldn’t/can’t hunt, its only for men. And yet, there are people saying that men shouldn’t hunt b/c its wrong. Anyone can hunt, and frankly, I’m damn proud of him. Hunting requires dicipline, patience, forditude, integrity, and respect for nature. For an 11 yr-old to do this, and face something about 11x’s larger than himself is more than any anti-hunter could understand. Besides all that, the family is going to eat this animal, and GOD made animal so that we could live. Its in the BIBLE, some of you should read it sometime. Way to go Jamison. Good Job !!!

    31. PBurns on June 1st, 2007 7:27 am

      The thing is a hoax. This pig was shot in a 150-acre pen, was trucked in to the location, was fed out of a bucket its whole life, and it’s not as big as it appears in the picture. Nothing wrong with wild pig hunting, but this is not hunting and this is not a wild pig.

    32. Janie on August 17th, 2007 8:52 pm

      HOLY CRAP! THAT SUCKER IS HHUUUGGGGEEEEE!! it looks like it could eat him! like 5 times then shit him out & then do it all again! lol j/k but he should be proud that he accomplished something like that because you don’t see something like that everyday!

    33. Donato on August 30th, 2007 11:43 am

      Wow , something this big should have been put in a big zoo ! Killing Animals this size is a bit harsh to History . People would have wanted to see this Giant Monster alive !

      Dear Shanon , Killing is still Killing no matter the pleasure of it , loving to kill is a matter mental disturbance . Ted Nudgent said eat what you kill.

      Killing something for just the pleasure , is what bad hunters are tainting the “hunting” in America . Soon all Hunting will be stoped , do to one mishap gone public wild . A young Pig would have suited the boy for eating fresh without deseas infestation . Old pigs don’t taste very good at all . I’m a pig farmer and this animal just found its last day .

    34. Vanessa Lumpkin on September 8th, 2007 1:50 pm

      That’s really pathetic. Hunting is the most cowardly way to end an innocent animals life. If it took them 3 hours to kill it how much of a threat was he? Who was a threat to who???? The boy? I don’t see the boy bleeding out of his mouth. Think again for all of you who think hunting is a ‘sport’.. it’s the most pathetic concept i’ve ever heard of. It’s no different than someone stalk a human being to do harm to them.

    35. Ellen on June 28th, 2008 2:27 am

      This obviously looks like a pig and not a Boar. I have been on several hunts and have seen some big Boars, but their heads look a a bit different than this pigs head. My uncle also has some pigs on his farm in Indiana and they look exactly like this!!!, less the kid sitting behind it with the shotgun in hand…lol

      On the other hand I am sure if this was a real hunt this boy is very proud of himself, as he got him a biggin!!!lol

    36. Indra on November 5th, 2008 1:44 am

      I am great and surprished to see that these large mammals are also hidden in jungles. I haven’t seen this large pig ever yet. I have seen the documentry about this fact in National Geographic Channel and I love that show. It’s interesting. And I honour this brave boy by my graceful words. You are great guy. bye

    37. people are sick on May 31st, 2009 4:04 am

      This is extremely wrong!!!

      Parents should get crimial negligence charges. Better yet just lock em up for a few years, no beacon!

      11 years old children should not be holding a loaded gun (children make mistakes and accidents happen)

      on top of that:

      of course the safety switch was off, and this kid was allowed to shoot freely anywhere he wanted whenever he felt like it.

      while running in the woods for three hours (very easy to trip brake a leg, accidently pull the trigger and kill himself or someone else.)

      shooting the poor thing with a revolver chasing it for THREE HOURS. It’s like being shot to death by a pelet gun for a human lol. You’d need a big caliber rifle and a scope and you’d have to stop running to maybe take this pig down with just one bullet making it a short death. What were they thinking using a revolver torturing this poor animal for that long.

      This pig was one of a kind! It could have been in the movies. Everybody would have wanted to see that pig alive. It’s like killing the very last Panda in the world.

      Even if I was a pig hunter I wouldn’t kill such a pig!


      can’t blame the child. I always wanted to have a gun in kindergarden lol

      How about paint ball, target practice, moving targets, laser guns… specially for an 11 year old kid


      Hunting ?

      Paintball is awesome! At least your opponents fight back! Try to knock that pig in a fist fight lol the poor thing doesn’t have a chance against guns… nothing to be proud of! shame on them

      Yes in the past humains had to eat meat to survive but not anymore. Its ok to eat meat but I think everybody should cut down. When you think about it, it is cruel to take animals, stack them in overcrowded cages,
      let them step and sleep on their shit all day, controle what they do,
      where they go and when they go,
      completely take away their freedom,
      make their life miserable,
      feed them till they get big enough
      and kill them.

      plus some retards will beat them daily for the heck of it. What a power trip!

      That is torture at its best.

      no species on earth diserves that.

      No wonder all those wars arround the world… Apperently, some people enjoy killing and making suffer…

      I will defend myself against a muskito, a dog, a human or anything that’s attaking me. I’ll even give a warning before I really snap, allowing the enemy to retreat and no one gets hurt. If not…

      self defence
      survival and
      bugs in the house

      should be the only reasons to kill

      Shanon I completely disagree with you quote:

      “I’m a woman and a deer hunter, so I really feel for the kid. Hunting requires dicipline, patience, forditude, integrity, and respect for nature.

      discipline: they didn’t have any

      patience: they have that, they took 3 hours to slowly kill the poor pig.

      forditude: guns vs pig I wonder who’s gonna win this

      integrity: possession of firm principles: the quality of possessing and steadfastly adhering to high moral principles. What are you talking about? These guys have no integrity! They did not follow any logical moral principales. Nor does it take integrity to be a hunter.

      respect for nature: Oh my god! In all industrialized countries, humans don’t have to hunt wild animals to survive! Where did you get that? More like disrespecting nature!

      and by the way, a women hunter is such a turn off! No hard feelings :)

      respect life

      respect people as well as animals, plants and trees

      Please don’t be a serial killer

      have a nice day
      SM: Sorry, but I shot guns at the age to as well as 10′s of 1000′s of other kids and they did not turn out to be serial killers. Just the opposite. If you learn gun safety at a young age you will be more responsible.

    38. poeple are sick on May 31st, 2009 10:37 pm

      When I said: “Please don’t be a serial killer”,
      I meant: please don’t torture, hunt or kill any living thing unless its a matter of self defense or survival. Nothing personal against hunters. It’s all about respecting the environment.

    39. tommy on June 8th, 2009 11:32 am

      You can tell by the snout its farm raised, and he could be standing 10 feet back or use photoshop. Also something that fat is not game. Hog hunting is fun and tasty so don’t ruin it by making a boar look bigger than it is. So i think this mcdonalds kid stinks.

    40. tommy on June 8th, 2009 11:41 am

      A 11 year old could never shoot a .50 caliber pistol and a 5 year could never shoot a gun strong enough to kill a deer.

    41. Plenum on November 18th, 2009 10:11 am

      this is nothing for anybody to be proud about

      the kid should have been developing his brain instead of his balls

    42. John on November 26th, 2013 11:00 am

      Great job to the kid. WAY TO BRING HOME THE BACON!!!!! Congrats to mom and dad. If that was a fat woman we would just say she has a pretty face and a great personality or she has a thyroid problem. The only problem this hog had was an eating disorder and JR solved that.
