Move Over Hogzilla, There is a New Pig in Town – Thanks to 11-Year Old Jamison!

Posted on May 28th, 2007 in In The News, Science & Nature

Move over Hogzilla! Recently the AP reported that an 11-year-old Alabama boy used a pistol to kill a wild hog his father says weighed a staggering 1,051 pounds and measured 9-feet-4 from the tip of its snout to the base of its tail. Strangely enough my first question was: what the &#$% is an 11-year-old boy doing with the pistol! The answer: he was on a father-son hunt – how sweet!

Giant Pig Displaces Hogzilla

  • Jamison Stone, 11, poses with a wild pig he killed near Delta, Alabama.

According to Jamison’s father (no relations to Spiderman publisher J. Jonah Jameson or adult film star Jenna Jameson):

The purpose of this hunt was to give Jamison the opportunity to challenge himself and with this challenge the opportunity to overcome fear and accomplish something that would not be easily done.

“As he is becoming a young man, I wanted to see if the stuff I had been given him over the years would be the right stuff and if he had enough of it to rise to this and other challenges that life would surely have in store.” Because remember, shooting a feral pig with a pistol is a lesson that can be applied to many different challenges in life!

Jenna Jameson and J. Jonah Jameson

  • Just to be clear: Jenna Jameson and J. Jonah Jameson are NOT relatives.

“I am not trying to raise another child I am trying to raise a Champion,” and as we all know: giant bacon strips in the morning is the Breakfast of Champions!

“It feels really good,” Christian schoolboy Jamison, of Pickensville, said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press. “It’s a good accomplishment. I probably won’t ever kill anything else that big.”

Pending confirmation, Jamison Stone’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.

Next up for Jamison: a bit part in The Legend of Hogzilla movie and a hunt of the legendary Big Foot – with a blow-gun!

    Yep! This one definitely invokes a number of reactions. I wonder what this kid will grow up to be? Remind me in 20 years to do a follow-up!

    I appreciate the irony. Did you see our reports on ESPN and StinkyJournalism.org that show this entire “learning experience” ended up being a cruel hoax? It’s hard to laugh about letting this poor pet pig, named “Fred” bleed out for 3 hours because the boy was a bad shot and the hunters were told if they killed the hog–no press. So 3 armed and professional hunters stood aside and refused to put the hog out of its misery –against all rules and ethics of hunting that requires a swift and painless shooting death if at all possible. This animal was raised as a pet in a small backyard breeding operation and had no fitness or way to know to hide or protect itself against humans he only knew as sources of food and petting for his 2 plus short years. http://www.stinkyjournalism.org/latest-journalism-news-updates-123.php

    Rhonda, I always figured something sounded wrong about last year’s Hogzilla story. I’m glad you made a follow-up. Lessons learned via killing aren’t really on the top of my mentoring arsenal, so to speak. The story you refer to helps provide context into the story and provides some helpful follow-up. Thanks!
