Mr. Larry Earley lives jes' 30 miles north of Orlando, in thrivin' metropolis of Okahumpka (Yeah, the pit stop on the Florida turnpike 'bout mid-state.) Larry got hisself 20 acres an' keeps a a few cows and horses, but it's jes' mainly pasture with a bit o'woods on t'other side o' his fence.
His neighbor rancher done mentioned some trouble --for several years some wild hogs go to tearin' through the cattle feeders.
At the first of 2009 Larry seen what he thought to be a cow over near his pond... went to check iffin' it were stuck in the mud.
But mercy!! When he got up on the thang he seen it were a a hog. That ton o' pork heaved to an' charged at him.
Larry, bein' a regular sorta fella, whipped out his handgun and when Hogzilla came at him again, he done shot it twice't an' kilt it daid.
Now y'all, regular hawgs that runs wild here in Florida tips in at 100-400 pounds.
Reckon this mammoth had been feasting on free vittles o'grain for years so it growed an' growed...an' growed.
When Larry got that load o' pork over to processor it weighed 1100 pounds!
Since the porker was grain fed it doan have no wild flavor (too bad!) so what ya gonna do wif' all that ham? Mr. E done been a square fella-- fed local fireman and provided the homeless shelter in downtown Orlando with meals.
Now THAT is Pork we can all be happy about.
