Monster Pig

Monster Pig, also known as Hogzilla II and Pigzilla, is the name of a world record wild hog killed on May 3, 2007, by an eleven year-old boy, Jamison Stone. The location is disclosed as a 2,500 acre (1,012 hectare) commercial hunting preserve called Lost Creek Plantation, outside Anniston, Alabama. The pig weighed 1,051 lb. (477 kg.) and was 9 ft. 4 in. (2.84 m) from the tip of its snout to the end of its tail. The hog's head was mounted on an extra-large foam form and measured 54 in. (137 cm) around the head, 74 in. (188 cm) around the shoulders and 11 in. (28 cm) from the eyes to the end of its snout. The balance of the hog is being turned into approximately 500 to 700 lb. (227 to 318 kg.) of sausage. Stone said he was using a Smith & Wesson Model 500 with a mounted holographic scope and ported barrel firing eight 350-grain Hornady cartridges into the pig.Stone chased the hog for three hours through hilly woods before finishing it off with a point-blank shot.

That story was found to be fake, they bought the pig who was friendly and shot it dead with no effort.
