The beast had been seen on trail camera footage years ago, but hunters had failed to capture it until Webb, who says he fired a single shot from a .308-caliber AR-15 rifle from about 50 yards, took it down.

Good time to have a high capacity magazine though.

I bet you could smell that musty critter from further away than you could see him.

Oh c'mon, 500 lbs? Next thing ya know, you'll be telling me there are albino marlin!

That thing is a pig in the truest sense of the word! Now where's that dogo argentino thread again? Heck, if I was a dog and saw that thing, I'd tuck my tail between my legs and RUN!

That sucker is huge. Dropping him with a single round was some good shooting. I would have popped that sucker a few times at 50 yards. I have seen a pig charge people. That one charging you would not end well.

I am surprised its only 500lbs.
Saw a 300 pounder in the back of a buddies pickup one time and this thing looks way bigger than the one I saw.

Nice hog but maybe the news reporters should not assume every gun is an AR-15 and investigate thats its an AR-10, a nice one at that! My largest pig was 320 and I thought that was big, this thing is a dam horse! Wonder how the meat tasted

I bet he is sitting at least six feet behind that hog. It does look photo-shopped, as not even the leaves of a sycamore are as big as a man's head. He probably long-arms bass too.

Hogzilla was 800lbs. Ultimately proven real by NatGeo and multiple experts. Not that 500lbs is by any means a piglet haha.

500# is a big pig but that guy is way behind it in the photo making it appear quite a bit larger. its like holding a fish out towards the camera for a pic. its called forced perspective.

Difference being Hogzilla was later proved to be a feral pig. This appears to be a boar.

Gotcha. I assume the difference is a feral pig was once 'domestic' whereas a boar has only ever lived in the wild?

Yes, domesticated and released/escaped into the wild and from what I recall was well fed by the land owner. When pigs turn feral their attitude and appearance even changes,g rowing tusks, long hair etc, sometimes making it hard to distinguinsh a feral pig from a boar, but if you look closely at Hogzilla I believe his floppy ears and such are still visbile and when compared against the boar above he doesn't look nearly as tuff.
