Default 1,000 pound pig!

Some 31 year old fella in Georgia shot himself a THOUSAND POUND PIG!

Saw it in the paper today.

What would the record be?

my sister's sister in law caught a pig when it was just a few days old, it weighed over 1,000, but it was domesticated.....when he died they had to rent a backhoe(sp?).....

Don't believe it was truly a wild pig.

As an ex-hog farmer, my boars weighed from 800-900 lbs. My sows weighed 600-700 lbs. That is an auction scale not an estimate.

Yes this is a domestic breed probably a cross. If I had to guessed, I would say Duroc-York cross. I don't believe a feral hog can eat enough to get that size. There just isn't engough good nutrition available in the wild.

However we did have a black bear in NC that learned to raid a dead hog box. When they killed him he was 880 lbs. Even if the boar raided a corn crib, corn is only 8-9% protein. Maybe he raided a wheat or soysbeans storage bin.

I saw the photo and read about it last week on the CNN web sight. OK maybe not 1000LBs, but the biggest damn pig I ever saw. I guy who shot him was kinda standing in a hole so it does make the pig look bigger yet. I would have guessed 800/900 LBs and a good 8 feet long. Biggest one I have seen at my place was a 6/7 footer had to go 600LBs. It was in the rain after my cross hairs went away couldn't tell front from back. I crawled up on him and just placed one right in the middle. He just trotted off like nothing happened. My buddies look at me like I'm tellin a fishin story.

Oh well.
