http://www.wsbtv.com/news/10674297/detail.html Images: Giant Boar Killed "Hogzilla" Caught, Shot In Fayette County POSTED: 10:20 pm EST January 5, 2007 Fayette County -- An urban legend comes to life, and meets its death in northeast Georgia. A boar weighing 1,100 pounds was shot and killed in a Fayette County neighborhood. Residents say the wild hog had been tearing up their yards for years. These so-called "hogzillas" have been spotted and killed in south Georgia in recent years, but the Department of Natural Resources is trying to determine if the pig shot in Fayette County this week is a state record. People passing by the Coursey house are amazed by the boar hanging from a tree in the front yard. William Coursey, an avid hunter, shot the pig in a neighbor's yard. Coursey says the boar is one of four that had been roaming the neighborhood, uprooting yards for seven years. He says the other three animals may have been killed previously. He says he thought it was myth until now. Coursey and his son took the hog to a local weigh station, where it weighed in at 1,100 pounds. It's an estimated 9 feet long. The Courseys believe the hefty hog may be the biggest ever, based on statistics they say they found in a local hunting magazine. Experts say the large pigs are "feral," meaning they were once domesticated but now run wild. They can be dangerous, and the DNR urges that you call wildlife experts to remove the animals.

That is a huge hog.  I grew up on a hog farm and have worked with 600 and 700 pounders and they are huge.  1100 pounds is scary big.
