Being a city guy, I have a hard time believing things that large still roam the wild. If something can grow to that size and not be noticed until now, then someone needs to build a few condos down there.

This reminds me of "Hogzilla."

There's a whole article on Snopes about it, and being the crafty mythbusters that they are, already have a blurb at the bottom about this record setting feral pig.

Believe it or not, that 11 year old is probably far more responsible with his gun(s) than quite a few adults. Not a popular view I know, but there are tons of young adults raised around guns that respect the weapons, respect what those weapons can do, know how to handle and be safe when handling a gun, and act appropriately when handling one. ;-D



Anyway, back to the story. That's one big pig! 8-o :-b

Very good point Madison, I was trained when I was 5-6-7-8 on up how to shoot a gun, from pistols, to rifles to shotguns. My dad trained me not to ever even joke around pointing it at someone and how to take care of the gun......... hunting is part of becoming a man to many southern people (And some northern but not as many.) Some avid hunters teach there kids how to hunt, clean, cook and eat the deer, duck, hog or whatever they are hunting it's more than common to have kids as young as 5 and 6 on hunting trip's with their own guns on these trip's. MY 7 year old nephew has his own 22 rifle that's spiecallly made to where the stock and barrell are the right size for his body. It's a very common thing

all right let me try to explain my viewpoint. after years of practice/training whatever i could understand a young teen 13-14 being responsible with a gun. but do you think its appropriate to FIRST teach them. a 5 year old can hardly READ yet, but he's going to be taught how to blast a shotgun? i just dont see how a 5 year old can make a responsible decision between "ok, heres a deer lets shoot it, and theres a dog/child/person, lets shoot that" or "lets play with the guns when daddy's not around".

I agree, after speaking with a few 5 year olds, there seems to lack of critical thinking and reasoning skills on their part.
