Gee, I wonder how the story would have read if the outcome had been reversed? '1,000 pound monster-hog kills innocent boy'. According to the story, it was a shot at point blank range that brought it down. Okay, so it's safe to say that the young Stone has some serious 'stones' to stand face to face with that thing and shoot. Plus, it was on a commercial hunting preserve. So ... they stocked this thing? If so, that takes some of drama away from this for me. Now, if it was tearing up their fields and such, well, okay you do what you gotta do. But if it was on a perserve, then there was no point in killing it. Maybe I'm missing something in the story.
Still, a pretty amazing beast.
