Default Supposedly a 500lb wild hog

But it looks like it was photoshopped when I look at the leaves under its chin.

Nope it's real. I live in NC and it has made it to all the local TV stations and this guy was interviewed several times at his house. http://wral.m0bl.net/w/localnews/story/111499932/.

I like that the knucklehead reporter used the word "caught". You don't "catch" a wild hog. You kill it

I've seen folks run dogs on wild hogs and catch them, haul them out live and fresh butcher them when they get home.

But, you're right about that hog. Seeing a guy behind the hog with hunting rifle, would indicate that he shot it and didn't catch it.

Yes 'some' do, but I will pass on that one. DRT, the only good hog is a dead hog!

Haha. She was actually pissed about the hat. She was chasing me when I snapped the picture. I had the Vet out a few weeks ago and he was surprised to see she was still alive. The life expectancy of this hog is 4 to 6 years. He told me whatever I'm doing keep doing it. I work at a brewery so she gets beer all the time. Haha.
