Monster Pig is the name of a large hog killed on May 3, 2007, by an eleven year-old boy, Jamison Stone in a 150-acre (0.61 km2) low fence enclosure within the larger 2,500 acre (10 km²) commercial hunting preserve called Lost Creek Plantation, outside Anniston, Alabama. According to the hunters (there were no independent witnesses) the pig weighed 1,051 lb (477 kg). Claims of the authenticity and allegations of the kill being a canned hunt have disputed the claim.

Hogzilla is the name given to a wild hog that was shot and killed in Alapaha, Georgia, on June 17, 2004, by Chris Griffin on Ken Holyoak's farm and hunting reserve. Alleged to be 12 feet (3.6 m) long and to weigh 1,000 pounds (450 kg), scientists confirmed that Hogzilla actually weighed 800 pounds (360 kg) and was between 7.5 and 8 feet (2.25 and 2.4 m) long, diminishing the previous claim.
Coursey hog On January 5, 2007, a 1,100 lb (500 kg) feral hog was shot in Fayetteville, Georgia. The shooter was William "Bill" Coursey, who hung the specimen from a tree in his yard. Neighbours reported that the animal had been seen in the neighbourhood several times over the preceding days. A spokesperson from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources said that large boars and feral hogs were common in southern Georgia, but that no records are kept on them. The media latched on to the notion that this animal rivals the size of Hogzilla. “ My wife and son were driving home that afternoon, and they saw this hog eating water oak acorns in the neighbor's yard. We asked the owner if he'd like me to shoot it and he said he did. So I went over there, and got in position with my crutches (a fireman, Coursey was recuperating from a broken femur). I was about 40 yards (37 m) away when I shot it right behind the ear (with a Ruger [Model 77] MK II 7 mm/.08 rifle). It took one step back and fell over, and that was it. ” — Bill Coursey
Hog Kong was an estimated 1,140 lb (517 kg) wild hog killed in August 2004 by Larry Earley at his 22-acre (89,000 m2) farm near Leesburg, Florida, using a Smith & Wesson Model 29.
Big Bill The world record for the heaviest pig so far is held by Big Bill, owned by Elias Buford Butler of Jackson, Tennessee. It was a Poland China breed of hog that tipped the scales at 2,552 lb (1,157 kg) in 1933. Bill was due to be exhibited at the Chicago World Fair when he broke a leg and had to be put down. At about this point in time, the trend in hog production began to shift to hogs that were much trimmer and very lean.
Ton Pig was a domestic hog from China owned by Xu Changjin that weighed in at 1,984 pounds(900 kg). Ton died from lack of mobility due to obesity on February 4, 2004. It was sent to the Liaoning Agriculture Museum in Shenyang, for display.
Big Norm was owned by Robert Peterson. Although Norm got regular hog feed, he started to grow to freakish proportions. A cooperative extension agent was able to calculate Norm's weight at 1600 lb (730 kg) and he was 8 ft (2.4 m) long, and 4 ft (1.2 m) high.
