Was it a wild Russian Boar or a feral swine?

As I understand it they buried the thing shortly after shooting it. I would have the head off that thing in no time brought it to a taxidermist (sp?) No way would I bury a hog with tusks in the 16" to 18" range. That is what convinced me that it was not nearly as big as they claim.

If it's 12 foot long then the guy next to it is 8' 6" tall. It doesn't take much of a hog to reach a thousand pounds. It takes four guys and two skid loaders to get it on a truck though.

As a youth I was working on a farm in Colombia, South America. There was a hog there that weighed in at 800 lbs. It died of unknown causes and it was decided the creature should be cremated rather than buried. We hauled it out into the middle of a field with a tractor, piled wood and kerosene on it, and set it on fire. It burned for three days and you had to drive for three miles before you could get away from the smell of roast pork.

Like any other critter/fish, etc. They all gain size and weight with the telling.
Give this one 10-15 years, and it'll be around 1 ton/20ft long.
