Berrien County - A 1,000 pound wild hog is killed in South Georgia.

Chris Griffen killed the 12 foot long hog dubbed Hogzilla at River Oaks Plantation near Alapaha. Griffen and the plantation owner buried the animal and didn't slaughter it because they thought the meat was too old.

There are no official records on hog kills in Georgia, but a Department of Natural Resources biologist says he's never heard of one this big.
