1,800lb "wild" pig
« on: December 21, 2011, 07:02:30 PM »
Had this sent to me via e-mail. Don't know the full story; only what you see here.

Cute little Missouri pig ...That was killed in the town of Potosi , Mo.
We call them Piney Wood Rooter's.

There was a documentary on about a month ago about these PIGS growing up
rapidly in the US .
They're all over Georgia , Alabama , Arkansas , Missouri , Florida and other
states.
Did you ever wonder what happens to those people that just leave home and
disappear but their car is found out on a dirt road?

Between bigfoot and these monsters, I think we know!
This one was killed by a Medical Radiology worker...
What would you do if this beast was coming at you?
Run for dear life? Climb a tree? Or simply get run over?





Over 1,800 lb. wild boar shot and killed in Potosi , Missouri near thecounty
airport, Hwy 8 east and near the community of Mineral Point





Yep......only in Missouri !

We were told to stand still because their eye sight is poor.
By standing still they probably would not see you and walk right on by.
And NO you can't outrun them!!

Giant Wild Boar - Analysis.

 Status: The images (#1, #2, #3) are mislabeled.

According to a March 3, 2009 article in the Conroe Courier, no 1,800-pound wild boar has ever been seen near Conroe, Texas, let alone hunted, bagged, and photographed for posterity. Your average Texan feral hog weighs in at approximately 150 lbs., says a Texas Parks and Wildlife game warden quoted in the Courier. An exceptionally large one might tip the scales at 300.
 
In point of fact, it's doubtful there's a wild boar anywhere in the world that weighs 1,800 pounds. There have been reports of domestic hogs approaching or exceeding that size, but the largest documented specimens in the wild have topped out at 1,100 pounds or less.
 
Citing a report in a French hunting magazine, the Courier reveals that the boar in these pictures was actually a 781-pounder killed in Turkey in 2005 (the EXIF data embedded in the images confirms the photos were snapped on June 3 of that year). One visual clue — the "Nature Tours" logo on the side of a vehicle in one of the photos — indeed points to a Turkish hunting website on which the same images are displayed.

Critical thinking keeps people from freaking the hell out every time some half baked blogger forgets his meds. Unlike some of you, I do not have TawkethOutOfAnus© syndrome.
