Alabama Boy Reportedly Kills Massive Pig Bigger Than ‘Hogzilla’

Alabama Boy Reportedly Kills Massive Pig Bigger Than 'Hogzilla'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.

‘Seemingly mythical proportions’

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.

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.


‘Extra-large’

Through it all there was the fear that the animal would turn and charge them, as wild boars have a reputation of doing. 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.

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. Mike Stone is having sausage made from the rest of the animal.

Can you believe that an 11-year-old can actually kill an animal as huge as this? What would you do with all that meat if you were the one who killed this massive hog?

Five-year-old Boy Fatally Shoots 2-year-old Sister

Five-year-old Boy Fatally Shoots 2-year-old SisterA Kentucky mother stepped outside of her home just for a few minutes, but it was long enough for her 5-year-old son to accidentally shoot and kill his 2-year-old sister with the .22-caliber rifle he got for his birthday, state officials said.

‘Guns at an early age’

The shooting in southern Kentucky has been ruled an accident, Kentucky State Police Trooper Billy Gregory said. Young children in the area are often introduced to guns at an early age, Gregory said.

On Wednesday, state police were still investigating toddler Caroline Sparks’ death, CNN affiliate WLEX reported. Her family kept the Crickett rifle in what they considered to be a safe spot, Cumberland County Coroner Gary White told the CNN affiliate. The boy was playing with it Tuesday when it accidentally went off and killed his sister, White said.


‘Rifle models for kids’

The Crickett website features three .22-caliber rifle models for kids, with shoulder stock colors ranging from pink to red, white and blue swirls. “My first rifle” is the company’s slogan. Family members Wednesday described the shooting as an accident.

Caroline Sparks’ death comes after two other incidents in recent months involving young children shooting others. In early April, a 4-year-old boy in Tennessee shot and killed a 48-year-old woman, and just days later, 6-year-old Brandon Holt was killed in New Jersey after being shot in the head by his 4-year-old playmate.

Were the parents at fault in the fatal shooting accident? How young is “too young” when it comes to handling firearms?
