Monster Hog Killing, Debra Opri

I realize this is old news, but I have to express my true sentiments about it.

When I first saw the picture and read the story about that boy killing that Monster Hog, I found myself saddened and angered that such an amazingly beautiful animal by the name of Fred, who wasn't wild at all, but who had been raised in a farm since the age of 6 weeks, would suffer such a slow and painful death, just for a few days of glory for an act that involved torture and abuse of an animal that had never hurt anyone, and who was only minding its own business.

If it's true that Fred was that big, why not capture it and put it in some farm so we could all see this incredible animal?

I can’t even begin to imagine the terror Fred felt as he tried to escape while wounded, when that 11 year old brat finally hunted him down only to kill him!

I see absolutely no glory in this boy’s barbaric behavior!

Boy Who Killed Monster Hog Says 'It's Not Fake'

When Birkhead signed an agreement with NBC for exclusive reports on the Dannielynn custody case, he claims he was to receive no less than $1,050,000, however, the suit alleges that at least $865,000 of that money was deposited in Opri's attorney-client trust account. Birkhead says he never gave Opri consent to deposit any money into her account, and has demanded that the money be returned to him. According to Birkhead, Opri has only returned $200,000.

These two quotes are especially for Debra Opri:

Larry Birkhead Sues Ex Lawyer Debra Opri For "Fraud"

Not all lawyers are money hungry bloodsuckers like Debra Opri! [info]duoraven, my LJ friend, will someday be MY lawyer, and thank God I met him, because he is truly a young man with values and integrity!

This quote is especially for duoraven, because he will someday make a very GOOD lawyer:

“The good lawyer is not the man who has an eye to every side and angle of contingency, and qualifies all his qualifications, but who throws himself on your part so heartily, that he can get you out of a scrape.”

This is the first I have heard of this story...did a google seach and found this site...which sounds like a much different version of the story. http://www.monsterpig.com/

It was in a farm and the owners of the hog decided to get rid of it....kill it. I am a hunter and I don't see what was wrong with this....

Kill it in a slaughter house, or kill it in the forest....I am not sure I see the difference? It was gonna get killed and eaten one way or another.

Are you against hunting in general?

I will never, EVER again eat pig again
My love for the animals has really getting out of hand, but I can't help it. The killing for sport of birds and animals, and especially of this hog pains me to the point that I my heart feels enormous pain that I carry for days.

Pigs are very intelligent, almost as intelligent as dogs if not more, and I will never, EVER again eat pig again, and am seriously contemplating become a full fledged vegetarian.

I have no real problem with hunting for food. Even vegetarians have to kill something in order to eat. I wouldn't say I'm exactly "pro" hunting for sport though.

I can understand someone killing an animal for survival, but not for sport.
Jun. 2nd, 2007 05:25 pm (UTC)
little wanker, as we say over here.

harmless and beautiful animal
I can't for the life of me help but wonder how that boy had the heart to kill such a harmless and beautiful animal as that hog!
Jun. 2nd, 2007 05:38 pm (UTC)
A canned Hunt is not hunting and it is being cruel to the animal you are so right!
I hope that you have a great day today Sunshine
Love you!
Jun. 2nd, 2007 05:50 pm (UTC)
and all at the SAME TIME
The poor animal wondered about wounded for hours, trying to survive. That fact pains me terribly!

I'm having a nice quite day here at home tinkering with my computer, watching Fox News, drinking coffee, listening to music, doing laundry, and yard work, blowing kisses at my little 4-legged babies, and all at the SAME TIME! :o)

Love you too, Sweety Pie!

Re: and all at the SAME TIME
Well be sure to blow me one or two of them Kisses too Sunshine! ;o)

I don't see anything wrong with hunting for food. I think people who do hunt for food are doing no more or less evil than a farmer who heards in 100 loving cute cows to slaughter for my steak on the grill, and I LOVES my some grilled ribeye! As ugly as the truth is for people like you who ache for the pain and suffering of those animals it is the truth none the less.
This young mans family turned his sport into food for not only their family but for their town as well. I bet it tastes terrible and is full of more fat than anything but it is food none the less. Noone would have said a single negative word if this guy had taken his son to the store and bought 1,100 pounds of sausage and then gave 80% of it away. However those pigs would have died equally as horrible deaths.
My father used to live on a hog farm and if his stories of what THOSE hogs ACTUALLY go through doesn't turn you into a vegitarian then this story of a 1,100 lbs hog won't. People as a whole are SO mislead about what goes on to put that meat into that little package in the store. Hunting is by far less horrific and painful. And THATs the truth of it.
God love you girl! QUITE READING HORRIFIC ANIMAL STORIES!! You KNOW before you EVER click the link that it is going to FILL YOUR HEART WITH GLOOM and horror for days if not weeks. Seak out more crappy lawyer, drama-mama, peternity testing, fighting stories and do not, I FORBID YOU, READ ANY MORE ANIMAL STORIES THAT ARE NOT HAPPY...LMAO!!

Much love,

I made a BIG mistake when I first saw King Kong, and as God is my witness, I can NEVER again watch that movie, because King Kong's death affected me as you will never imagine.

I realize something is terribly wrong with me, and it's getting worse with each passing year, because I can actually feel the pain animals feel. Perhaps I was some kind of animal in my other life, if there's such a thing.

I realize I contradict myself terribly loving animals so much, yet I love steak and fish!! But I somehow fool myself into believing that since I bought them at the store, they were never alive to begin with. I won't wear anything that would be at the expense of some animal's life, and will someday force myself to become a 100% vegetarian. At least when it comes to rabbits, lambs, and deer, I can honestly say that I have never, nor will I ever eat them, and I've honestly added pigs to this list because of Fred!

I blame all this slaughter of our animals on Adam and Eve! If only the animals could somehow go back to the Garden of Eden!

Sending big hugs to you, and you precious Dad!

you're a furry now?

No, not a furry, but a feathered friend! :o)

chances are good that they're ALIVE when you're eating them! Think about that next time you're stuffing your face full of salad. Just because it doesnt yelp when you pluck it doesnt mean its not alive.

OMG! Why did you tell me that?! Then what the hell can I eat?! I do believe you want me to starve to death!

Just for that, I'm gonna put some beef patties on the grill and make some juicy hamburgers! Think I'm kidding? Just watch my next post! har har

One thing's for sure, all bunny rabbits, deer, lambs, all my feathered friends, and just recently pigs, will always be safe with me!

Oh yes, the Darwinian Theory. How very, very sad!

I ended up making a spinach, and beet salad with Thousand Island dressing. By eating these things today, I saved some helpless little creature!
Jun. 3rd, 2007 02:43 am (UTC)
King Kong's death is sad. It's still one of my alltime favorite movies. I'm talking the original 1932 movie. I still think that stop motion animated creature still has more depth than either the 1970 delaurentiis crap-fest or Peter Jackson's ok film.
Jun. 3rd, 2007 06:31 pm (UTC)
Is it possible that donchep ...
King Kong's death is sad.

Is it possible that donchep does have a heart?! :o)

King Kong is also among my many favorites, but I'll never be able to watch it again, although I did watch the 1930's version on one of my very favorite TV channels, Turner Classic Movies, but when it came time for King Kong to die, I quickly changed the channel. You're right, it is an excellent version!

How I wish the movie had a different ending, where King Kong somehow survived, and was able to go back to his home in the jungle.

Did you ever watched LEXX, and if you did, what did you think of it? What do you think of Mad Max?

Re: Is it possible that donchep ...
The best part of the movie is the death scene because ,through some incredible feat in creating emotion and pathos in the stop motion sculpture model create by Willis O'Brien, you actually feel life in Kong and it's so very sad. I waited for years for them to put it on DVD.

Another great film is the 1950 version of Mighty Joe Young. Again O'Brien and Ray Harryhousen did an amazing job bringing a model to life.

I never caught Lexx, that's the canadian Sciience fiction series, right? And I'm going to be working on a movie related podcast so I'm very familiar with all of George Miller's films especially the entire Mad Max trilogy and his best movie "Babe: a pig in the city"

Do you think I’ll EVER be able to pry myself from Fox News?! :o(

I wouldn’t have been bitching if the owners of Fred had sought help in finding him!

Of course the boy KNEW the giant hog was harmless! Remember, he shot him and the hog ran away, and he followed him for what was it? 3 or 4 hours?!!

But this hot didn’t have anything to gore anybody!!

As for killing unborn babies, I’ll be making a future post about that, and when I do, I’m running for cover!!
Jun. 2nd, 2007 07:58 pm (UTC)
call me a party pooper, but I don't think hunting for sport is excuseable. Hunt for necessity or kill in defense. I suppose I'm guilty of 'hunting' salmon and crabs as a kid/teen when I went fishing with my dad, but we ate what we caught for that purpose, vs. "Hey! Look! we got a 20 pound fish and are celebrating it in the media as an ego trip!"

But otherwise, killing a giant pig has no dignity in my eyes. I'm amazed at the size of it. I had no idea that they could grow that large.

Well then, we disagree. Thank you for your effort.
Jun. 3rd, 2007 05:59 am (UTC)
I thought that a feral pig was a domestic pig that escaped.....you are speaking like they are two different things...

Jun. 2nd, 2007 11:47 pm (UTC)
I'm amazed by its size, also. What a shame such a huge, harmless animal like that was shot to death. I'm sure it suffered very much, before it took its last breath!

But that hog had never hurt a living soul.

But you're right, hunger does make beasts out of all of us. :o(
Jun. 2nd, 2007 08:14 pm (UTC)
I think pigs are a foul beast to eat, but even so... they killed it and turned it into food. If they killed it just to kill something, then I'd have a problem with it. But they didnt. They killed it and ate it.

I see no problem with it.
Jun. 3rd, 2007 01:18 am (UTC)
I've always loved bacon and ham, but I stopped eating them a long time ago, when I learned how intelligent pigs are.

I do have a problem with this particular hog, because it suffered for hours before its death. He was awesome. Can you imagine how nice it would have been, to see such an animal alive?
Jun. 2nd, 2007 08:16 pm (UTC)
I don't really have an opinion on the killing of the pig. I used to live in Alabama, and its redneck country down there. They'll shoot anything they can get away with. Living in Alabama was the worst 10 months of my life.



If I saw a hog that big in the forest, I would run like a little bitch and hide up the highest tree!
Jun. 2nd, 2007 11:31 pm (UTC)
I just can't imagine a tree big enough, or strong enough to hold a big guy like you! :o)

Seriously, had you been the one to see that poor hog, you would have found it minding its own business.

Jun. 2nd, 2007 10:13 pm (UTC)
I have hunted all my life. But only to get some meat. I don't shoot an animal unless I am gonna eat it. I don't think people should hunt for sport but for meat.
Jun. 3rd, 2007 05:22 pm (UTC)
poor little animal
As much as it pains me, you have every right to hunt for meat to eat. Just be sure you and your family eat every little morsel of the poor little animal, okay?! :o)
Jun. 4th, 2007 12:11 am (UTC)
Re: poor little animal
We will, if it can be eaten we eat it. Except for the guts and organ meat. That we use as fetrilizer for the garden or feed it to our cat.
Jun. 3rd, 2007 02:48 am (UTC)
While I personally am not a hunter nor I care to be one. I can't argue on the morality of hunting for sport as opposed to eating it. Personally I would hope that if one hunt's for sport they are at
least unting an animal whose population needs regulated anyway.

Jun. 3rd, 2007 05:13 pm (UTC)
Putting my heart aside
When it comes to animals, I sometimes let my heart get in the way of what is right or wrong.

Putting my heart aside, I realize that man’s survival has always been based on hunting for their food. And as heartbreaking as it is for me to admit; you are right when bring up the population regulation of certain animals.

The only thing that bothers me, and I realize it shouldn’t, is when people hunt for sport, because I know the terror and pain they feel when hunted down, and I know they want to live just as much as you and I do.
Jun. 4th, 2007 03:14 am (UTC)
Re: Putting my heart aside
Well it's not about right or wrong. For me it's simply about trying not to judge people on why they hunt. Just because it's not for me, doesn't mean I am going to judge the reason people hunt.

I used to work on my big brother's hog farm. I detusked boars with a hammer. You knock the tusks out to prevent them injuring other hogs as they get older. Both times I did it the hog in question just stood there and acted like it didn't hurt at all but it made me feel terrible. I would also tag hogs by putting a tag on a ring through their ears. The first time I did it I was scared to death but the hog just grunted and went on eating. I use to have a sow that would follow me around the farm like an old dog. She loved to have her ears scratched. One time a buddy of my got into a stall with her and I suggested he scratch her ear. He did and I was preparing her food so my back was to them. He called my name and I ignored him but he got more and more frantic. So finally I turned around and this very large sow was leaning up against him and had him pinned to the wall. By this time he was in full panic he screamed "How do I get her off me?" I looked over the situation and said "Scratch her other ear." She always leaned the direction of the ear being scratched. LOL

Could you please tell me what the difference is between a sow, a pig, and a hog?

Perhaps I'll seriously look into buying myself a little pig as a pet. They're as cute as can be and so friendly and smart.

SUEEEE! Bet your friend started scratching that critters other ear fast! haaaaaaa

When I was a little girl, my family and I went to a rabbit farm. I'll never forget that awful day.

This man grabbed one of the white little rabbits, who was wiggling, and kicking like crazy, with its little eyes filled in terror, when the man hit it over the neck, then drove a nail through each of its paws with a hammer, then he took a knife and slit it from it's little neck, all the way down.

No, I should never have seen that horror!
Jun. 3rd, 2007 11:03 pm (UTC)
Hog and pig are names for the same animal like horse or cow. A sow is a mature animal that has had young. A boar is a mature male animal that can reproduce. I hope that helps. No little girls should never go to rabbit farms.

raised in a farm
I was wondering why it was so big, now I know.

Re: raised in a farm
BUT! Was it REALLY that big?!
