An 11-year-old Alabama boy used a pistol to kill a wild hog that just may be the biggest pig ever found.

Jamison Stone's father says the hog his son killed weighed a 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'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...

..."It feels really good," Jamison, of Pickensville, said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press. "It's a good accomplishment. I probably won't ever kill anything else that big."fox (http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,275524,00.html)

Unless the kid kills Rosie O'donnell... lol, sorry. :D

1) Alabama
2) Kid with gun
3) target he could not miss.


But seriously this is probably a domesticated pig that has gone feral, could be extremely dangerous because it wont fear humans.
I remember when I used to live in a farming/forestry community twice a year groups would form to hunt the feral pigs because they were dangerous to people and livestock.

Feral hogs aren't native to the continent. They were introduced by Hernando DeSoto into southwest Florida in 1539. Today, many view feral hogs (http://www.invasivespeciesinfo.gov/animals/wildboar.shtml) as a threat to the native environment, including the Invasive Species Specialist Group which lists feral pigs (http://www.issg.org/database/species/ecology.asp?si=73&fr=1&sts=sss) as number 90 of the world's 100 worst invasive species.

With a pistol? This kid is something else. I'd hate to have to haul that back to the the truck. I have hunted wild pigs and have carried out wild boars weighing around 190-200lbs. It was tough. This thing is huge.

In case you were wondering, the head fat is the tastiest part. Cut it off, boil it, pour it into a pan, let it cool, cut it up and eat it. Mmmmmmm, better than bacon.

No offense to anyone out there but who ******* lets an 11 year old shoot a .50 cal handgun and hunt a large animal which then takes him three bloody hours to finally kill. while Daddy and buddy watch with the long rifles...

Bad hunting practice.

OK I have been shooting since I was 4, but I was never let to hunt alone until well into my teens and even then mostly bow hunting. When I shot at something I did not spend the next three hours looking for it. I waited until I had the best chance and the animal usually did not even jump.

A boar that size would be about as dangerous as a rhino! Pigs have insanely strong necks. Pigs that weight about 40 Kg on our farm can easily life twice their own weight on their necks. I can't imagine what that monster would do to someone who came across is unarmed...you wouldn't stand a chance if you agrivated it.

That kids just made alabama safer without that thing around...but with kids with .50 cal pistols around i'm not sure how safe lol!

Even if you believe in the superiority of man over animals, we still can't do whatever we want to them. If we're in charge of them, we can use them to help us, but we also have to take care of them. When you're little, your parents are in control of you, but that doesn't mean they can do whatever they want. Just be careful with stating man's superiority. Superiority != free license to do whatever you want.

" ..... And the award for the number one most invasive species goes to ...... the .. white man!"

Absolutely sick rotten/story/boy/family/practice.

Zim called it first and was absolutely right.

Yes, I agree -- the problem with the (white) invasive species started in about 1492 in the Americas. My native Indian ancestors should have had a more strict immigration policy. But unfortunately, they didn't. Instead, they welcomed the white visitors, such as the great white explorer DeSoto who introduced pigs to the Americas. And as every school child should know, the native peoples got screwed in the whole land-grab by England, France and Spain, along with other (so-called) "civilized" nations.

But that's all a done deal now. No one can change the past. Let's move on to what we can do today to protect that natural world.

Ever watch a raptor kill a squirrel? It's not a pretty sight, but it's a normal and necessary part of the natural world. Hawks do a great job of keeping the number of mice, rats and other rodents down to reasonable levels. It's just one small part of nature's balancing act.

Many people regard feral hogs as environmental vermin. If their number increase to large enough size, they destroy the natural environment that unknown numbers of native animals depend on to survive. And that's not a good thing for the natural environment.

Thanks to the "civilized" society of today, we've eliminated the number of natural predictors of the (unnatural) feral pigs. So here's my question -- If society would ban hunting of these hogs, what force would keep their numbers in check?

Henri Gaudier
May 26, 2007, 01:01 PM
You have asked a difficult question Localoid. One to which I have no immediate answer. The balance is lost so how to remedy ...? It is certain though, that the shooting of creatures for fun or "sport" only exacerbates the wrongs of the past and present. I believe we are all harmed by butchery such as this. Wounding the earth and her animals destroys us all, little by little. The family of this boy have failed him. They lack good council and do not respect the holy spirit and have raised him accordingly. All in all, bad medicine.

I won't argue as to whether or not feral pigs should be killed. People won't change their minds based on my post.

However, I think it's utterly irresponsible for any hunting party to knowingly allow an animal to suffer for hours before finishing it off just so some kid can claim the kill. The father and the guides had it in their sites, apparently, for most or all of the three hours it took it to die. That's cruel and inhumane, and none of the hunters I know would allow it to happen.

i agree, but we don't know the whole story. some animals can just take a few shots and keep going. maybe the kid's dad and uncle were just out of sight to put the kill shot in after the 1st few shots and it took off. our hunt gang hunts with the sole purpose of harvesting an animal as quickly and humanely as possible.

i know the non-hunters out there just groaned at 'humanely as possible', but it is possible to harvest an animal without them feeling any pain or very little.

i would also get into a debate wrt to some of the other posts with the non-hunters or anti-hunters I should say b/c some non-hunters do understand it, but in the end, if you're really against hunting, there is nothing I, nor anyone, could say to change your mind. let's leave it at that.

There are plenty...teaching kids about guns is a great way to teach responsibility, and sport shooting is as much a past-time as any other sport. Now, if he were on a city block running around with a hand-gun, that's a totally different story.

He was hunting. If he had a bow, would it be considered different?

Google 'hogzilla' or look it up on wikipedia.

From what I understand, Hogzilla was never officially weighed and was then disposed of. Hence, there was no proof of his inordinate size. Tall tales always keep growing and exaggerating the aspects of the stories and this one is no different...apparently, the hog's size kept growing as people reported on it.

If you hunted that with a bow and arrow, or a bowie knife, I'd have a bit more respect.

A pistol should be in the same category as a bow. Although it was a .50 caliber pistol, you can see that it took many rounds to bring the pig down. Pistols aren't exactly easy to shoot, either, and a .50 cal pistol warrant a whole new difficulty level, especially if running behind the pig for 3 hours. I went to a range and shot pistols (9mm and .40 cal) back-to-back for 20 min and my arms were sore the next few days (I'm a rifle guy). I couldn't imagine running then stopping then shooting then running then stopping then shooting (rinse and repeat)... Stress like that, unless you've adapted to it (think Army Ranger or Navy SEAL or Olympian), and really screw up a shot grouping.

Respect is due and given from my direction. A few more runs like that, and that boy should lose 50 lb!

Yeah, I agree. The pics look real but the perspectives are different in the two photos contained in this thread.

The first pic shows a HUGE pig that looks well over 3 feet from chest to hackles. The pic where the pig is hung up, the pig doesn't look as tall from chest to hackles. It could well be that in the first pic, the boy is a few feet behind the pig, making it look bigger. Even in the second pic, the pig is huge!

I agree with you guys as well . Letting the animal run for three hours after shooting it 8 times is just bad hunting practice. The daddy should have taken his rifle and finished it off before the pig ran off. though admittedly it was one way for the dad to get the kid to exersise. :D

I also think that this pig would have to be killed sooner or later.
Feral pigs are a lot worse than true wild pigs, I have seen the damage they do to horses, cattle and even buildings. Imagine that a non-armed individual met this in the woods, most likely he/she would have been a quick snack...yes pigs do eat meat.

FRUITHURST, Ala. — The Mystery of the Monster pig appears to have been solved.

The 1,051-pound hog, shot and killed by 11-year-old Jamison Stone and the subject of a world-wide Web firestorm over the photo's authenticity, really is...

Fred.

That's "Fred" the pig, and according to Rhonda and Phil Blissitt their humongous hog escaped on April 29, four days before it was killed, according to the Star newspaper.

Late Thursday evening, their claims were confirmed by Andy Howell, Game Warden for the Alabama Department of Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries.

"I didn't want to stir up anything," Rhonda Blissitt said. "I just wanted the truth to be told. That wasn't a wild pig."

Her husband agreed.

"If it went down in the record book, it would be deceiving, and we'd know that for the rest of our lives."

The monster hog gained worldwide acclaim after he was bagged by 11-year-old Jamison Stone, a Pickensville native, with a .50-caliber pistol on May 3 at the Lost Creek Plantation, LLC, a hunting preserve in Delta. The big boar was hunted inside a large, low-fence enclosure and fired upon 16 times by Stone, who struck the animal nearly a half-dozen times during the three-hour hunt.fox (http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,277097,00.html)

It was a pet pig named "Fred" who had gotten loose.

ok... now i'm furious. absolutely furious that this pig was shot in a FENCED area! no wonder the chubby kid could chase it. who cares if it was 150 acres...pig still can't get away.

i'm a die hard hunter and this IS NOT HUNTING! if the individual is in a wheel chair, then i could see means for a fenced in hunt, but even then i'm still a bit skeptical.

when i first heard about this, i thought, hey...cool for the kid. now, i'm furious. aside from the supposed doctoring of the photos....the piggee was a biggee no doubt about that.

but to shoot it inside a fenced area? as an ethical, responsible hunter, this pains me. this just gives fuel for the anti-hunters out there to slam us yet again.

hunting when an animal doesn't have the ability to get away using its God given abilities is just plain wrong. it's not hunting...it's just 'chasing with a gun'.

I respectfully disagree. if any animal is physically unable to get away b/c of human barriers, it's a total cheat.

but i see your point about hunting. we could turn this into a debate about that, but opinions are opinions so i won't get into it. :)

i'm glad the truth is out about this pig and how it was taken. it completely and rightly takes away from the accomplishment...b/c it's not really an accomplishment.

By this same logic we should probably start hunting the CEOs of companies that pollute excessively. Scratch that - let's just kill anyone with an SUV.

We can be all noble and claim we're helping but we're not. There's no sport in killing, especially in this case where the boy killed a domestic pet!

I understand where you're coming from, and I do kinda agree with you, so I won't disagree or debate :)

Just wanted to clarify, I didn't mean in terms of the animal being able to get away (but I do agree with your point about that), it's more about the human having to take significant risks and get up close and physical. Not hide behind a fence, or stand 20m away (or however far it was that he missed a half ton hog 12 times out of 16)

If killing a wild animal means running a risk of death or serious injury 30 - 50 % of the time, then that's more of a test of yourself and an accomplishment.

I accept that risk's too high for me - that's why I don't go hunting with a bowie knife. But I would kinda respect a licensed hunter who did.

Anyway we're off the point - this was a TAME hog in a field.

The chaps on HIGNFY covered this story in the show. Basically stereotyped the kid and his family as hunt-obsessed Neanderthals. May or may not be in the vodcast (http://youtube.com/watch?v=QF9M7Afzdu8), but it was a bit funny :)

edit: it does talk a little about the pig.

I first saw it on Graham Norton's Show.

What I want to know is how that fat boy ran almost constanly for hours! Surely he would be tierd out after 10 minutes, carrying all that weight.

if i was 11, in the backyard or woods, and saw a grizzly-bear sized monstrosity running around, i'd grab the nearest gun in a second. to look at that you wouldn't instanly think "hog", just some hairy ass monster. scary stuff.

Simply because it's amazing doesn't mean it should be out in the wild. With no natural predators, these wild boars are ripping up the countryside down South and are actually dangerous. No great loss to the world.

All that bacon is gone by now (or at least should be). This is a six year thread resurrection.

Yes that is some sport killing such a big target with a firearm.

A real sport is give the kid a stick and let him fight with it. I would pay to watch the boar bore the kid.

I'm just shaking my head over the post on this thread, people getting upset about guns, saving this stupid pig, etc. Heck, I bet his family is still eating well off that one pig.

I can't believe that no one is upset about the event that took place a year later, where the Lion Mutilates 42 Midgets in Cambodian.

I originally posted the story back in 2007 as something fun. If the story really is fake, that's some pretty good photoshop for a bunch of gun toting rednecks. Maybe they should go to work for the Iranian government.

The link pretty much exposes what happened and the tricks used to pretend the pig was bigger than it actually was.
