Fred the dead hog…too ridiculously massive to fit in frame

An apparently wild 476 kilogram and 2.74 metres long hog, shot by an 11 year old Alabama boy recently, was not so wild after all. It was reported Friday that “Monster Pig” actually used to go by the name Fred, and was bought as a Christmas gift in 2004 by a pig farmer for his wife.  

The Blissitt family of Alabama had actually raised the monster on their farm, but sold the pig away to the Lost Creek Plantation four days before Freds’ death, as it was too massive for the pig farm.

“I just wanted the truth to be told. That wasn’t a wild pig,” Rhonda Blissitt, the pig farmers wife said.

Jamison Stone shot the huge hog during what he and his father described as a three-hour chase.

“We were told that it was a feral hog,” Mike Stone, Jamison’s father said, “and we hunted it on the pretense that it was a feral hog.”

The Blissitts said they did not know their hog was dead until they were contacted by a game warden for the Alabama Department of Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries. The agency determined that no laws were violated in the hunt.

Phil Blissitt said he became irritated when he learned that some thought the photo of Fred was doctored.

“That was a big hog,” he said.

What a hog wash.
