Comments: According to a March 3, 2009 article in the Conroe Courier, no 1,800-pound wild boar has ever been seen near Conroe, Texas, let alone hunted, bagged, and photographed for posterity. Your average Texan feral hog weighs in at approximately 150 lbs., a Texas Parks and Wildlife game warden told the Courier. An exceptionally large one might grow to be twice that size.
In point of fact, it's doubtful there is a wild boar anywhere in the world that tips the scales at 1,800 pounds. There have been reports of domestic hogs approaching or exceeding that size, but the largest documented specimens in the wild have topped out at 1,100 pounds or less.
Citing a report in a French hunting magazine, the Courier reveals that the boar in these photos was actually a 781-pounder killed in Turkey in 2005 (the EXIF data embedded in the images confirms they were taken on June 3 of that year). A visual clue, the "Nature Tours" logo on the side of a vehicle in one of the photos, indeed points to a Turkish hunting website on which the same images are displayed.
