The Sunday Times of Perth, Australia reports that this massive feral hog, once written off as a hoax was indeed shot on a cattle ranch after it was spotted eating a dead cow:

“The picture has been circulating on the internet alongside claims the boar was killed at various locations across Australia,” The Sunday Times reported.

“The source said the 220kg beast was eating a cow when it was first seen by workers mustering cattle in a helicopter.

“There are estimated to be more than 23million feral pigs roaming the nation, predominantly in New South Wales, Queensland and the Northern Territory.

“They prey on native species and destroy habitats.

“The DEC has culled hundreds in the state’s South-West over the past two years.”
