18 February 2009: Jan found these photos on the following site: http://www.naturetours.com.tr/approches/approches.htm These photos are real – but the ‘big boy’ was killed in Turkey.
Jan says: “I don’t think they’re doctored (being in graphics for a long time). They’re shot at angles that make the boar appear bigger.” Thanks again, Jan!
13 Febuary 2009: Dr. Dave notified me that these photos have been doctored. Keeping with my promise to keep stuff up, even if it showed me to be in error (as long as it did not harm others), here are the photos.
You can read the comments below and decide for yourself!

Why the glum faces, guys? You got him before he could run off all the tourists!
This guy brings new meaning to the word, “Porky!”
If you saw more than 1,800 lb. of wild boar coming at you, what would you do?
Run for dear life?
Climb a tree?
Become a muddy splat in the road?
This is the poster boy for ‘saying your prayers’ at night!
MDH sent this a few minutes ago. Thanks!
