Hey, is this thing for real in southern middle America?

"Over 1,800 lb. wild boar that was shot and killed in Potosi, Missouri near the county airport,Hwy 8 east and near the community of Mineral Point. They're all over Georgia , Alabama , Arkansas ,Mississippi, Missouri, Florida and other states."

This is something that would require some large African nitro express caliber!

I would imagine he would be rather tough. I prefer young and tender.

Not only tough but also gamey enough to need special attention in cooking, like dicing or grinding real fine and using a good sauce piquante recipe, at least with my share.

But my major question is have you ever heard of a wild "hog" this size and weight wandering in your part of the world?

He certainly wasn't that big or wild, but I had a pretty tasty boar dish, cotoletta di cinghialle, at La Perla in D C last week. Fantastico!

We've had some Feral Hogs around hear, in midde Tennessee, but nothing that size.

I would like to believe the photo, but I would have liked to see the gentleman standing, holding the hog's snout up, to better authenticate the shot. This could have been photo-shopped to make the porker look larger. We've all seen that done with fish.
