The wonderful thing is that this story is in the New York Times. The front page of the online edition, no less.
"ALAPAHA, Ga., March 17 - Few episodes in this modern age have drawn the Southern talent for tall tales like the legend of Hogzilla, the alleged 12-foot, 1,000-pound wild hog shot and killed on a South Georgia farm last June."
Etc. etc. Dig it. http://nytimes.com/2005/03/19/national/19hog.html?hp
