They're a danger to children, too. I've shot them in my front yard - not 800 lbs - but 250lbs.
There are many of these in Southern Mountains, especially Oconee and Pickens counties:
Man shoots mammoth 820 pound wild hog in his front yard
Samson resident Wade Seago knew something was up outside
of his home last week when the family's pet schnauzer, Cruiser, started barking constantly. The Seagos live on 100 acres in the rural south Alabama town. The property and surrounding area is teeming with wildlife so it's not unusual for their dog to bark at deer, raccoons or other wild visitors.
The dog had a huge wild hog bayed in his front yard, about 5 yards off of the front porch. "Cruiser had this huge hog confused with all of the barking and movement," Wade continued. "It was not a good situation."
It took three shots to take him down. The giant hog hit the ground near the carport.
