Monster Pig or Hogzilla was the subject of a controversial story that initially ran in the news media as a report and a series of accompanying photographs of an year-old boy shooting a giant feral pig. The pig was claimed to have been shot during a hunt on May 3, by an year-old boy named Jamison Stone. The story quickly ran into veracity problems with news organizations backing off on their coverage when inconsistencies in the story were revealed, including NBC, who canceled their interview with the Stone family when they suspected the story was a hoax. It was later also revealed that the "giant feral hog" was actually a large domestic farm-raised pig named "Fred" that had been purchased by the hunting preserve's owner four days before the hunt in an apparent publicity stunt. There was a grand jury investigation of the event based on charges of animal cruelty that was later canceled. Jamison told the media they were invited there by a "friend" who told them about a "big hog he had that was tearing up land".
