"Feral swine" doesn't sound too menacing. But how does "fearless half-ton wild pig" grab you? That's a lot of hungry, aggressive bacon on the hoof! Let's go find one!
- Skeptics and believers get equal time to make their case.
- Pigs gone wild! And really, really big, in the latest MONSTERQUEST expedition.
- Monsters lurk among us - or do they? Get closer to the truth than ever before!
From the lochs of Scotland to the forests of America's Northwest, MONSTERQUEST sets out to get to the bottom, once and for all, of our most persistent and compelling creature stories. All we know of so many monsters are campfire stories, blurry films and grainy photographs, so this fascinating new series takes a fresh look at the legends and seeks new, reliable evidence. Open-eyed historical research and real scientific analysis set the stage for groundbreaking field work: high-tech expeditions to the home turf of legendary monsters. If MONSTERQUEST can't find them, nobody can!
So a few pigs get out of the sty and disappear into the wild. They thrive and multiply on natural forage. What's the big deal? Well, "big" is the right word, as these animals can actually grow to enormous size, menace domestic animals and cause incredible environmental damage. Porky will have his revenge!
Recently in Georgia an 1100 pound hog was shot and killed, and in Texas beasts almost as large have been reported. But are these creatures raised and fattened up in a pen, or are they wild hogs, naturally more aggressive, that have somehow reached gigantic proportions?
Join this latest MONSTERQUEST investigation and meet victims of vicious wild boar attacks, examine the existing evidence and team up with hog hunters, researchers and trackers to find a giant of our own.
One parting thought: a single monster wild pig would yield 700 pounds of sausage! Now that's a MEGA HOG!
