UPDATE: Turns out the pig was sold to the plantation 4 days before it was shot, having been raised in a shed and becoming too big for the owners to deal with. Now the dad is reeling on his webpage, explaining that his son "did NOT shoot the family pet".
If you haven't heard about this, take a look. An 11-year-old boy shot a giant pig with a pistol.
All the news outlets had a little story on it, like this one.
Classic that this comes out of Alabama. Sad that when you read up on the story, it turns out this kid was following this pig around in the forest for 3 hours, unloading 13 rounds from his pistol into the pig during that time. And it was all within an enclosed pay-to-hunt area. And to make it even more sporting, his father and a couple of guides were there too, with high-powered rifles, just in case the pig might try to defend itself, they could take it down quick, but lucky for them little Jamison got do it slowly with a little pistol for 3 hours.
Look closely at the photo that's on all the news sites.
On closer inspection it's clear that the kid is significantly behind the pig. Was he posed so as to appear as if he were resting on it? Doesn't matter. Point is there is no way you can really judge how big the pig is from this picture. Could be normal size. I'm not saying this was done on purpose, but.....
The father defends critics saying he was intentionally misleading people with the size from these photos by saying that actually there was a different photo which he circulated to news organizations, and this one was taken without his knowledge, but I dare you to find this other 'accurate' photo anywhere on the web outside his site.

Have a good laugh at the "negative comments" there.
"What the fuck is your fucking problem you fat ass bitch. You fucking killed a fucking innocent little pig. Does it make your fat ass feel good to kill such an innocent creature.

Read the "positive comments" and wonder why Christianity and "the troops" somehow keep coming up as if they have something to do with this.
