MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Hogzilla is being made into a horror movie. But the sequel may be even bigger: Meet Monster Pig. An 11-year-old Alabama boy used a pistol to kill a wild hog his father says weighed a staggering 1,051 pounds and measured 9-feet-4 from the tip of its snout to the base of its tail. Think hams as big as car tires.

If the claims are accurate, Jamison Stone's trophy boar would be bigger than Hogzilla, the famed wild hog that grew to seemingly mythical proportions after being killed in south Georgia in 2004.

Hogzilla originally was thought to weigh 1,000 pounds and measure 12 feet in length. National Geographic experts who unearthed its remains believe the animal actually weighed about 800 pounds and was 8 feet long.

Regardless of the comparison, Jamison is reveling in the attention over his pig, which has a Web site put up by his father—http://www.monsterpig.com —that is generating Internet buzz.

"It feels really good," Jamison, of Pickensville, said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press. "It's a good accomplishment. I probably won't ever kill anything else that big."

Jamison, who killed his first deer at age 5, was hunting with father Mike Stone and two guides in east Alabama on May 3 when he bagged Hogzilla II. He said he shot the huge animal eight times with a .50- caliber revolver and chased it for three hours through hilly woods before finishing it off with a point-blank shot.

Through it all there was the fear that the animal would turn and charge them, as wild boars have a reputation of doing.

"I was a little bit scared, a little bit excited," said Jamison, who just finished the sixth grade on the honor roll at Christian Heritage Academy, a small, private school.

His father said that, just to be extra safe, he and the guides had high-powered rifles aimed and ready to fire in case the beast with 5- inch tusks decided to charge.

With the pig finally dead in a creek bed on the 2,500-acre Lost Creek Plantation, a commercial hunting preserve in Delta, trees had to be cut down and a backhoe brought in to bring Jamison's prize out of the woods.

It was hauled on a truck to the Clay County Farmers Exchange in Lineville, where Jeff Kinder said they used his scale, which was recently calibrated, to weigh the hog.

Kinder, who didn't witness the weigh-in, said he was baffled to hear the reported weight of 1,051 pounds because his scale—an old, manual style with sliding weights—only measures to the nearest 10.

"I didn't quite understand that," he said.

Mike Stone said the scale balanced one notch past the 1,050-pound mark, and he thought it meant a weight of 1,051 pounds.

"It probably weighed 1,060 pounds. We were just afraid to change it once the story was out," he said.

The hog's head is now being mounted on an extra-large foam form by Jerry Cunningham of Jerry's Taxidermy in Oxford. Cunningham said the animal measured 54 inches around the head, 74 inches around the shoulders and 11 inches from the eyes to the end of its snout.

"It's huge," he said. "It's just the biggest thing I've ever seen."

Mike Stone is having sausage made from the rest of the animal. "We'll probably get 500 to 700 pounds," he said.

Jamison, meanwhile, has been offered a small part in "The Legend of Hogzilla," a small-time horror flick based on the tale of the Georgia boar. The movie is holding casting calls with plans to begin filming in Georgia.

Jamison is enjoying the newfound celebrity generated by the hog hunt, but he said he prefers hunting pheasants to monster pigs.

"They are a little less dangerous."

anwser me this question. when are people going to stop trying to pull fast ones on us. yes the pig was a huge pen raised pig, did they really tyhink it wouldnt come out. i took the side of the hunter earlier but it was a scam. has anyone seen the hunting lease magazine last weeks show they were on a hunt in colorado for so call wild pigs and they were 500-600lbs. the olny thing is its wide open and they were right on top of them and the pigs didnt care yeah right. so much for the wild stuff anymore. im all for hunting behind a fence but not something you can walk up to and shoot without caring you there

In the article posted by Matthew above, it says they had no earthly idea it was named Fred. You're right. Now everyone looks like fools.

So, I guess now if we kill something that might make the Boone and Crockett book, we have to check references to be sure the animal is actually a trophy and not recently released from a pen. This is going to be tricky.

This is a bad time to be an outfitter. I now have to wonder how many people have gone out and shot a really nice buck, and had it mounted without knowing it's name was George and that it liked soft music, long walks on the beach, and Oreo cookies.

Shame on that guide! Yep, we would all know that the truth would come out if it hit the media. He musta been a real dummy to not know that.Shame on him for giving the young hunter his 15 minutes, but then, it ALL be taken away from him as well. That was sorry. I fell really bad for the boy as he went from being so high to so low. It's like his accomplishment was ripped away from him.

As a guide I would not take a customer on a CANNED HUNT like that. All that does is give the hard working guides and hunters a bad name. I agree with guide girl . SHAME on them. I have some hogs that will stand there when you drive up but I wont let my customers take them because it is not fair to the animal or the hunter. Fair chse is just that fair chase. If you cant get out there and hunt take yourself to  the store and buy your self a steak.

That hog doesn't even look real...  I doubt it could have made it on it's own in the wild.  I have hunted hogs all my life and done so almost every way possible (stand, walk, dogs, night vision, even helicoper).  I know that hogs can get big, but we rarely come across hogs over 300 lbs, and 500lbs are far and few between, especially with a lot of Russian in them.  We have taken 3 hogs that have gone over 600 lbs, but we know that they were not russian and they probably got out of someones pen and wondered off.  Hogs that big can't move very well and they just aren't make to get that big off of natual vegition.
