Boy shoots worlds largest boar

MONTGOMERY, Alabama (AP) -- Hogzilla is being made into a horror movie. But the sequel may be even bigger: Meet Monster Pig.

An 11-year-old boy used a pistol to kill a wild hog his father says weighed a staggering 1,051 pounds and measured 9 feet 4, from the tip of its snout to the base of its tail. Think hams as big as car tires.

If the claims are accurate, Jamison Stone's trophy boar would be bigger than Hogzilla, the famed wild hog that grew to seemingly mythical proportions after being killed in South Georgia in 2004.

Hogzilla originally was thought to weigh 1,000 pounds and measure 12 feet long. National Geographic experts who unearthed its remains believe the animal actually weighed about 800 pounds and was 8 feet long.

Regardless of the comparison, Jamison is reveling in the attention over his pig.

"It feels really good," Jamison said. "It's a good accomplishment. I probably won't ever kill anything else that big."

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 Monster Pig. 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 for doing.

"I was a little bit scared, a little bit excited," said Jamison, who lives in Pickensville on the Mississippi border. He 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 animal 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.

It was hauled on a truck to the Clay County Farmers Exchange in Lineville, where Jeff Kinder said they used his scale, recently calibrated, to weigh the hog.

Kinder's scale measures only to the nearest 10, but Mike Stone said it balanced one notch past the 1,050-pound mark.

"It probably weighed 1,060 pounds. We were just afraid to change it once the story was out," he said.

The hog's head is being mounted by Jerry Cunningham of Jerry's Taxidermy. Cunningham said the animal measured 54 inches around the head, 74 inches around the shoulders and 11 inches from the eyes to the end of its snout.

"It's huge," he said. "It's just the biggest thing I've ever seen."

Mike Stone is having sausage made from the rest of the animal. "We'll probably get 500 to 700 pounds," he said.

Jamison, meanwhile, has been offered a small part in "The Legend of Hogzilla," a small-time horror flick based on the tale of the Georgia boar. The movie is holding casting calls with plans to begin filming in Georgia.

Jamison is enjoying the newfound celebrity generated by the hog hunt, but he said he prefers hunting pheasants to monster pigs: "They are a little less dangerous."

I don't think the hog is that big - the guy with the gun is just a very, very small boy.

I think it was shot in Alabama - WTF?

Anyone for boerworst? Not England, apparently ...

So in other words the boar was the size of medium sized cow. Still, amazing stuff though.

Jeez the movie is going to be a world wide phenomena, don't you think?....

My guess is they'll use two guys under a blanket to play the hog, thus ruining it.

I wonder why no one had the idea of putting it on a stake, waiting for the flies to infest ist and then see if it starts talking.

Also, I don't see how this justifies the right to baer arms. 11 year old with a gun, if it had been a kid on a mountainbike he probably would have shot it too.

Last remark: i wonder how many people it needed to put the animal in that exact position, with it's head on a piece of tree, so it would look picture perfect.

Medium-sized cow my butt!! That thing is massive! [/b]
It says the Boar is 1050 pounds...which is approx 477 kilograms. Most mature cattle are more than that. We, and my grandfather have had cattle weighing upwards of 600kg. I suppose 477kg is a medium to bigger sized cow, but all the same it certainly isn't a very big one.

It's a very American thing to do.

If something won't stand still long enough to be photographed properly, shoot it. Wouldn't be suprised if the boar was found to have a British passport, they do like drilling bullets into us guys, no matter what the situation.

There's no such thing as English women, they all f***ed off to the states 60 years ago. All we're left with now are Irish, Australian and Indian imports.
