Did you ever notice all the claims being made about unusual kills seem to be void of anything identifying the kills as to where they are from, sort of like the pic of the mountain lion chasing the hog that has been attributed to virtually every southern state in the US? It was a cropped game camera image, the time stamp having been stripped and so it gets recycled every so often and folks don't realize it is years old. Notice you don't see a Texas license plate on the truck. Notice no people are shown. I would guess that it is a South American image. I have seen similar images from Brazil and Argentina.

In fact, doing a Google image search reveals the image is from here...

Do those Russian boars even get that big, though? That thing looks enormous.

The only hogs I've seen that big were the ones in the bars and clubs around Ft Hood looking for an Army man to support them.

Anytime you encounter a questionable photo, just right click on the image and google the image.

Often times you trace it back to the original source, though that may not tell you anything about it.

Most often you will see the photo posted many other places with various stories/claims made about it.

Wild hogs can indeed grow quite large in certain parts of the world. Doubt you will ever see anything like that coming out of South Texas.

I use the internet exclusively with an iPad and iPhone (other than for work) and I don't know of a way to reverse lookup a photo using Google on a mobile device.

Well, it weighed 790 lbs, reportedly, but wasn't that a domestic hog that had been turned out?

Such a stoic pose in the background there.

Sounds like DNS knows that hog. My question was about the hog I submitted and also the how big feral hogs can get. 790 is a big one, in my mind. Almost hard to believe.
