Waltzing Hogtilda

It looks like Australia is facing a feral hog problem, with the Queensland critters getting bigger and braver in their search for food. This particular specimen, no doubt a distant relative of Hogzilla, tipped the scales at 270kg- the average hog in this part of the world is supposed to be between 60-150kg. His massive size is attributed to a diet of sugar cane and bananas. It took a team of three hunters and three dogs over three hours to track and kill "Hogtilda".
