Seago and his daughter spotted the massive hog in their yard after the family's pet Schnauzer Cruiser started barking. "I jumped up to see what was going on", Wade explained.

His dog barked, his child screamed and when Wade Seago looked out of his front window he saw why. "I couldn't believe what I was seeing".

"She said something about a hog and I went to the door and it was like a tank had rolled in", he said. "He didn't rush me, but I didn't really give him time too".

"Cruiser had this huge hog confused with all of the barking and movement", Wade said. It was not a good situation, ' Seago said. It took three shots to drop the hog, Seago said, and he later weighed it on scales at a peanut company.

Seago, an avid deer hunter, weighed the animal the following day and it tipped the scales at 820 pounds.

Since Seago shot the hog last week, he said he has been flooded with calls from media outlets and has been featured on several news sites and blogs, including the Drudge Report. The hog weighed in at 820 pounds.

According to the Alabama Dept. of Conservation and Natural Resources, feral hogs in Alabama pose a serious threat to native wildlife.

They cause cause millions of dollars in damage annually and hunters on private land can kill as many of them as they want under Alabama law. "I'd do it again tomorrow".

Feral hogs are considered game animals in the state, meaning they have no closed season and no bag limits.

Seago didn't have any regrets about killing the hog, which had tusklike teeth that were 6 inches long.

The animals have high reproductive rates, a lack of natural predators in the area, voracious omnivorous feeding habits, and display destructive rooting behavior and habitat destruction.
