NC hunter kills 500-lb wild hog in Bertie County

A North Carolina hunter is claiming to have killed a 500-lb wild hog in Bertie County.

The hunter, Jett Webb, told WNCT that he spotted the hog last month on land leased by White Oak Ranch Hunting Club.

"It was very surreal," the hunter, Jett Webb, told the station. "It was a shock. It was very humbling to say the least, when you walk up on a beast that big and you say, 'Oh my gosh. I had no idea that there could be something that big running around the woods of Eastern North Carolina.'"

    LOL Oh NO here come the peta folk! The only thing that is disgusting is your closed minded, lack of respect for other peoples choices and ways of life.

  • deb harper

    That’s like catching Big ole Al . The fish your granddad always talked about. WHY did you have to KILL him? Just take your pic and leave him be. Hope you’re proud of yourself!

  • Tammie

    Glad you killed it, they should NOT be running around in the woods wild! They are very dangerous! If you want to go get up on that high horse…. Go make a visit to Smithfield Packing!

    Hey PETA heads, before you get your panties all in a wad understand that this is FAKE. Not even a good photoshop. Nice try Jeff.

  • Kimberly Fenton

    If this is real, it looks like you did the state of North Carolina a favor. That could eat people’s pets or kill a person if it came in contact with someone. So a thumbs up to you. A thumbs down to the stupid Peta people, go eat your veggies and shut up.

  • Travis

    Way to go! To all with the negative comments, there is absolutely nothing wrong with killing something to eat. The guy killed a record and isn’t even going to hang it on the wall. He is having it all processed so kudos to him!

  • Jenn

    Wow, that’s pretty violent – if you’re a PETA person then wishing death upon a person isn’t very PETA-ish.

    At one time men needed to be hunters/gatherers in order for their families to survive. That is not the case, for the most part, today. It is just that some men today have failed to evolve.

    Its not that people havent evolved. Hunting is a hobby, and as long as all the meat is harvested and done during the proper season it is perfectly fine. If there is not hunting there is overpopulation and animals die due to lack of food. All of you anti-hunting people don’t realize regulated hunting helps the eco-system more than you all can do complaining about us “rednecks” Let me go eat some venison while you have your tofu.

    Funny how they are all peta until they find a mouse in their house.
