    [IMG]Boy Bags Wild Hog Bigger Than 'Hogzilla'[IMG][IMG]May 25 04:21 PM US/Eastern

    [IMG][IMG][IMG][IMG]try { insert_digg_btn('world_news'); } catch(e){}[IMG][IMG][IMG][IMG][IMG][IMG]View smaller image[IMG]MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Hogzilla is being made into a horror movie. But the sequel may be even bigger: Meet Monster Pig. An 11-year-old Alabama boy used a pistol to kill a wild hog his father says weighed a staggering 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 Stone'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.
    Hogzilla originally was thought to weigh 1,000 pounds and measure 12 feet in length. National Geographic experts who unearthed its remains believe the animal actually weighed about 800 pounds and was 8 feet long.
    Regardless of the comparison, Jamison is reveling in the attention over his pig, which has a Web site put up by his father— —that is generating Internet buzz.
    "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."
    Jamison, who killed his first deer at age 5, was hunting with father Mike Stone and two guides in east Alabama on May 3 when he bagged Hogzilla II. He said he shot the huge animal eight times with a .50- caliber revolver and chased it for three hours through hilly woods before finishing it off with a point-blank shot.
    Through it all there was the fear that the animal would turn and charge them, as wild boars have a reputation of doing.
    "I was a little bit scared, a little bit excited," said Jamison, who just finished the sixth grade on the honor roll at Christian Heritage Academy, a small, private school.
    His father said that, just to be extra safe, he and the guides had high-powered rifles aimed and ready to fire in case the beast with 5- inch tusks decided to charge.
    With the pig finally dead in a creek bed on the 2,500-acre Lost Creek Plantation, a commercial hunting preserve in Delta, trees had to be cut down and a backhoe brought in to bring Jamison's prize out of the woods.
    It was hauled on a truck to the Clay County Farmers Exchange in Lineville, where Jeff Kinder said they used his scale, which was recently calibrated, to weigh the hog.
    Kinder, who didn't witness the weigh-in, said he was baffled to hear the reported weight of 1,051 pounds because his scale—an old, manual style with sliding weights—only measures to the nearest 10.
    "I didn't quite understand that," he said.
    Mike Stone said the scale balanced one notch past the 1,050-pound mark, and he thought it meant a weight of 1,051 pounds.
    "It probably weighed 1,060 pounds. We were just afraid to change it once the story was out," he said.
    The hog's head is now being mounted on an extra-large foam form by Jerry Cunningham of Jerry's Taxidermy in Oxford. Cunningham said the animal measured 54 inches around the head, 74 inches around the shoulders and 11 inches from the eyes to the end of its snout.
    "It's huge," he said. "It's just the biggest thing I've ever seen."
    Mike Stone is having sausage made from the rest of the animal. "We'll probably get 500 to 700 pounds," he said.
    Jamison, meanwhile, has been offered a small part in "The Legend of Hogzilla," a small-time horror flick based on the tale of the Georgia boar. The movie is holding casting calls with plans to begin filming in Georgia.
    Jamison is enjoying the newfound celebrity generated by the hog hunt, but he said he prefers hunting pheasants to monster pigs. "They are a little less dangerous." ___

    man I feel bad for the animal. I would like to wipe that stupid look on that kids face away too.

    There has to be a more humane way than to let the 6th grader out there with his revolver shooting him like bobby bacala.

    I agree 100%.

    It's ignorant slob hunters like these bubbas who give all hunters a bad name. Three hours of torture thanks to being under-armed. As bad as dogfighting in my book. One shot, one kill or stay home.

    My only thought is, I wonder if you could actually take an eleven year old kid.

    And while you contemplate this... only thought of yours.. do you decide next to register for middle school classes, or take the easy way out?
