Well, that ginormous pig supposedly killed during a hunting trip in Alabama really was that big. Not surprisingly, however, it also turns out that–as I suspected–the 11-year-old “hunter” who killed Pigzilla, not to mention his dad and the hunting guides accompanying him, are not legitimate hunters.
In my earlier post, I expressed disapproval of and skepticism towards people who would require guides to hunt in Alabama and use .50 caliber pistols to do so. As it turns out, I was right to look upon them with a critical eye. The huge hog was a completely tame (albeit ginormous) pig named Fred that was raised by nearby farmers and sold to Lost Creek Plantation, LLC, desribed as a “hunting preserve” in the area. Get this: “The big boar was hunted inside a large, low-fence enclosure and fired upon 16 times by Stone, who struck the animal nearly a half-dozen times during the three-hour hunt.”
So these pathetic losers, who probably know less about the woods and tracking/hunting animals than Paris Hilton, hired people to guide them through a pen in order to shoot tame animals that have nowhere to go, and then puffed up their chests all over the Internet as if they were real men. No wonder they used handguns: it’s too difficult and time-consuming to learn how to use a rife or a bow and arrow. The same way it takes too much time and is way too dirty and difficult to learn how to hunt legitimately, which involves many, many hours of sitting around and/or tracking vs. brief moments of reward—and which also involves respecting the animals you’re hunting.
These idiots “hunted” ol’ Fred for a paltry three hours, and even with guides, use of a handgun, an enclosed hunting area, and a target even bigger than Ted Kennedy’s ass, the kid could only hit about 6 out of 16 shots. Great achievement, buddy!
Boo on these people from the Queen: fake hunters, paid guides, and the owners of Lost Plantation, LLC—boo on all of you!
