There are pig stories and then there are pig stories…proving once again that South Carolina is only a great place because Mississippi and Alabama keep us from being dead last.

Of course, Bob del Grosso over at Ruhlman understands the inspiration for such important work as letting your 11 year-old son, armed only with a high powered sidearm, hunt half-ton feral pigs that could rip your head off.

I’m more interested in the 700 pounds of sausage supposedly coming from this beast. If you’ve ever skinned a large wild hog, you’ve gotta know that’s gonna be some rank stuff.

…and be sure to visit the official “Monster Pig” website.

Update: Now that the real story is out, I guess PETA will be too busy to keep the heat on our local monks.
