Photoshop, you got me? But, the first two pics are obviously different pig than the third. Look at the torso hair on the different pigs. 1&2 look mangy and thin, ain't nothin thin on the razorback of the third pic.

they are all the same pig...not saying there is not some trick photography going on but the reason he is mangy looking is because he was drug and rubbed the hair off of that side...two different sides of the pig shown...

see I would think the pic of it by the truck by the road would be the after drag photo and thus no hair and the pic of it with hair would be in the field...

Well, they had to move the pig to take the pictures, and I am guessing they didnt just throw it in the back of the truck, they had to have drug it, which could explain the hair on THAT side of his body being gone.

There is no way they are the same pigs - Look at the hair along the spine, look at the hair color, hair density, size of the rear quarters, general size - the first two pics are portly, the third is big but stout. The hairline on the snouts are different too.

The truck has the wheel on "our" side, but it is not a domestic vehicle, definitely overseas.

I call BS too. Why doesn't the guy ever pose in front of the critter? Or use a gun or the appropriate weapon slung across the beast for scale?


Plus those dudes in the first pic have that "are we in trouble?" look.

in the first pic it looks like one guy is holding the head up with one hand. In the second pic it looks like the head is just levitating on it's own. And in the third pic it looks like there is a fork of some sort under the jaw. If that thing was real... who ever is holding the head up with one hand in the first pic better be Super Man or the Hulk! I call B.S.!!!

However big, however photoshopped, however staged - that porker could have done some serious damage with those cutter when he was still kicking.

No one is going to pose with a dead animal along side a nature tour truck. That is the dumbest picture I have ever seen. If someone were to kill a hog that big it would be all over the news plus Cabelas and Bas Pro would be all over it also.

There is no doubt that that is a big pig, but he is sitting waaaayyyyy behind it to make it look bigger. My guess is 350, maybe 400 pounds actual weight

It's called forced prespective, Hollywoor has been using it for years. When you place a image closer to the camera and use a slower shutter speed everything in the forground and background are in focus.

It's like the picture that SnakeLover posted... old camera trick.. All in all it's still a nice hog.. but not as big as it appears in the picture.

The company is Nature Tours out of Turkey: http://www.naturetours.com.tr/nature_eng.html
I thought those "guides" looked like they were from one of the "stans" countries.

Check out the website, these pics are there.

Also look at the pics of the cutters. Good night they shoot some big ol' pigs.
