Is It Possible There’s a ‘Pigzilla’ Loose in the Missouri Woods?
While daydreaming about the ultimate bacon sandwich the other day, I came across a question I've heard whispered by some of my Missouri outdoors friends. Is it possible there lurks a massive 'Pigzilla' in the woods? It's not as crazy as you think.
Stand by for some of the finest pig investigative work you might ever see. A couple years ago, there was a massive beast known as "Hogzilla" that was spotted (and never caught) overseas.
Follow me on this one. We know there is a feral hog problem in Missouri. The Department of Conservation has shared many reminders about this.
I know for a fact that some Missouri hunters have taken down massive feral hogs. I won't share the proof here, but if you want to see a pig the size of Godzilla that was taken down in Missouri, here you go. (WARNING: a huge hog dies, but the proof is there if you don't believe me)
It's a proven fact that the University of Missouri knows the feral hog population in Missouri is growing. Mathematically, the odds of a massive hog ('Pigzilla') somewhere in the woods is high. Combine that with anecdotal stories I've heard and I'll put my money on the answer being "YES".
Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm craving a BLT something fierce now.
