"BoarZilla" Thought folks on here might enjoy seeing this story about a couple of good ole boys who live captured this 790-pound boar hog with nothing but two dogs and some muscle.

That is one massive boar! Sounds like a good payday for them too.
Thanks for posting!

That is a good-sized, released, pen fed hog!

That hog has been raised by the Smitherman's (see comments posts on FB page)

I don't see why it would matter if it was pen fed at any point, that thing is huge... Bet it didn't roll over and let em rub it's belly. I wouldn't have jumped on it.

Looks like it has cutters to me. They are just worn off. They still curl the lips up.

Same thought here.
We used to let the breeder boars get to about 650 lbs and then sell them around five to seven years of age. Right before selling time, we would get a pair of wire pinchers and cut off about four inches of tusk leaving about an inch on the jaw.

The boars would get fed 3 1/2 pounds of ground feed a day, and they would still get this big.

Not feral by any means. Agree, big hog but released.
