If this hog from Russia is real, then it’s time to believe in monsters. 

Unearthed pictures of a wild boar, which we are affectionately calling King Kong Hog, spread over the Internet like wildfire a few years ago. If these pictures and story are real, then this hog from Russia is one of the largest wild boars ever shot on the planet.

Peter Maximov, a pig hunter from Chelyabinsk, Russia was hunting out of a tower near a favorite hog spot in the the Ussuriland, when a boar of epic proportions stepped out in front of him.

One shot later, Maximov reported that the hog, seemingly unfazed, ran off into the forest. After realizing how big the boar was that he just shot, Maximov was too scared to track it by himself so he called a local forest ranger to help.

Some time later, both men were able to find a blood trail and eventually track the boar to a place where it was bedded down, but still alive. Maximov then fired again, which enraged the hog and sent it into a full charge at both men. Quickly, a third shot was fired that finally brought down King Kong Hog.

Both men together couldn’t move the pig so they tied it to Maximov’s truck and drove it into the nearby village of Shokurov. From there, it was weighed out to an incredible 1,179 pounds! However, that’s not all. The shoulder height measured out to five and half feet of pure giant hog.

They’ve wreaked havoc on North American landscapes, but they’ve always been a part of Asian and European outdoors. As an invasive species, wild hogs can be blamed for a number of issues that have popped up in recent years.

Thanks to their fine swine genetics, they can reproduce at lightning fast speeds and area a real threat to wildlife and habitat in North America, especially the southern regions. The first time a wild boar attacks a small dog or ruins a field of crops in your neck of the woods, it becomes clear what these things can do.

States have legalized plenty of hunting methods around the U.S., including the use of dogs, night hunting, and especially trapping. Processors have even started to pay out for trapped wild hogs, and depending on the price of pork, a trapper can make a decent chunk of change.

But in reality, we haven’t seen anything like this King Kong Hog in the press before. Ever.

For comparison, Hogzilla, the giant pig from Georgia that made rounds back in 2004, weighed in at only 794 pounds and had a shoulder height of three feet, three inches. It was huge for the United States, but parts of Europe and Asia have boars even bigger.

As you can see, this Russian hog is huge.

As we all know, the problem with the Internet is that photos can be photoshopped. Is this photo and story real? We can’t 100 percent say for sure. Considering it came from Russia, with little other evidence than these photos, we just don’t know.

This is where you come in. Have you ever heard anything about this? Help us find out if this is in fact a real pig!

However, one thing to keep in mind, they say a picture is worth a thousand words, and in this case, that might be all we have.

What’s Better than Popeyes AND Chick-fil-a? A Fried Pheasant Sandwich

https://www.fieldandstream.com/whats-better-than-popeyes-and-chick-fil-fried-pheasant-sandwich/

Behold—the fried rooster.

Behold—the fried rooster. (Colin Kearns/)

Before we begin, let me set the record straight: The new Popeyes chicken sandwich is better than the Chick-fil-a chicken sandwich—by a country-fried mile. OK, now that we’ve got that out the way, let’s move on to an even better sandwich, the fried rooster.

There are plenty of great ways to cook pheasant—roasted, made into soup, or grilled with a beer can up the rear—but my favorite method, at least with breast meat, is with hot oil in cast iron. With the exception of maybe wild turkey, pheasant fries better than just about any game I’ve ever cooked. The meat stays tender and moist, and pairs perfectly with a salty, crunchy, golden crust. And there’s no better way to eat fried pheasant than in a sandwich.

What sets this beauty apart from a Popeyes or Chick-fil-a sandwich—aside from, you know, the improved flavor you get from honest, organic, hard-earned meat—is that it’s easy to get. The first time I tried to order the Popeyes sandwich, they were already sold out by 1 p.m. The second time, I had to wait in line for 25 minutes, which is longer than it took me to cook the fried rooster. What’s more, the pheasant sandwich brought back some great memories of flushing birds with friends behind good dogs. All I got from the Popeyes sando was a stomachache.

Here’s how to make your own fried pheasant sandwich.

Ingredients

  • 2 pheasant breasts (or wild turkey breast meat)
  • Peanut oil
  • 1 cup whole flour
  • ⅓ cup cornmeal
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ½ tsp. onion powder
  • ½ tsp. cayenne powder
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Buttermilk
  • Mayonnaise
  • Hot sauce
  • Brioche bun
  • Shredded lettuce
  • Dill pickle chips

Directions

  1. <p>Preheat the oil in a cast-iron skillet to 350 degrees.</p>
  2. <p>In a large bowl, mix the flour and cornmeal with the spices. Season the mixture with salt and pepper. Pour enough buttermilk into a separate bowl so the pheasant breasts can take a bath in it. Set this bowl next to the one with the seasoned flour.</p>
  3. <p>Lightly coat the pheasant breasts in the seasoned flour, then dip them into the buttermilk. Let the excess milk run off, then drop the breasts back into the seasoned flour. Make sure you coat every bit of the breasts with the seasoned flour, because this will make for a crunchier sandwich.</p>
  4. <p>Place the pheasant breasts into the skillet and fry for about 3-4 minutes, or until golden brown. Once they’re finished cooking, transfer them to a plate or cutting board and immediately season with salt.</p>
  5. <p>Meanwhile, mix a few tablespoons of mayonnaise with several dashes of hot sauce, then generously coat both the top and bottom buns with the sauce. Add a pile of shredded lettuce to the bottom bun, top it with the pheasant breasts, and add a few dill pickles. Dig in and enjoy.</p>
