1,100 lb. 'Hogzilla' Killed

 

While the last Hogzilla did not live up its expectations, fans of the beast may now rejoice. William Coursey killed a more than half-ton hog in his neighbor's yard on Friday, and hauled it to a weigh-station to get the official weight.

Coursey, of Fayetteville, Ga., hung the hog from a tree in his front yard for all to see. Although the state does not keep official hog records, this hog is believed to be bigger than the famed Hogzilla caught a few years ago in southern Georgia.

With hard evidence that hogs can weigh over one thousand pounds, people in the region claim more of these beasts exist in the state. The Hogzilla was one of many hogs that roam the area, yet residents say it was the biggest.

  You know...  
 
I really don't care to read about it unless I can also SEE it. What's the deal with these news sites half-assing the job?

Thought I'd voice my frustration..I'm sure there are others that feel the same way.

  maybe $?  
 
I think a lot of these news sites are running on the cheap, and to pay for the right to publish a photo puts good images out of the public's eyes.

Heck, even sites like CNN don't use many photographs.

  @ GarouNova  
 
I think I caught your tone correctly .........

Caveman did it for survival. Males like this (that you refer to; males like most of my extended Southern family tree, a tree that has more loops than branches, lmao), are in it merely because of the lack of, well, uhem, you get my point --- "the bigger the kill, the bigger man I am".

Wookie, I think those guys were only interested in counting pork chops.

If you have a gun rack in your bathroom, you might be a redneck.

If you mow your front lawn and find the pickup truck you reported stolen, you might be a redneck.

If your Halloween pumpkin has more teeth than your wife does, you might be a redneck.

I rest my case.

he killed it because it was tearing up the land in the area...it is, however, the south.

hunting is a way of life for some people, but for others it is not. i hunt avidly but i do not veiw people who do not hunt as wrong, they just have a different way of life, it seems however that people who are againt hunting veiw it as barbaric and stupid, grow up, and mind your own bisinus
