Eldest daughter sent a link with a different slant on the big pig story (See Just In Case You Missed It ). It seems that the pig had a name, and it wasn’t Grendel after all.

Fred the pig was shot in a fenced in hunting preserve.
Here is a quote from the Atlanta Constitution with Fred’s previous owners’ take on the story:
“From his treats of canned sweet potatoes to how their grandchildren would play with him, their stories painted the picture of a gentle giant. They even talked about how their small Chihuahua would get in the pen with him and come out unscathed.”
