Humane Society calls for charges in “Monster Hog” killing
***Editor GetCalhoun.com: Click to read theflip side”…Hunter dad comments...

The Humane Society of the United States has called on the Clay County District Attorney to investigate and charge several individuals involved in the canned hunting death of a pet pig named “Fred,”  which was made famous nationwide as the “Monster Pig.”  In a letter sent today to Clay County District Attorney Fred Thompson, The Humane Society of the United States requested that charges be brought against the boy’s father, who paid for and arranged the trip; the owner of the Lost Creek Plantation, who knew he was offering a domestic pig for hunting opportunities; and the two adult guides who assisted the hunting party.  Fred was purchased and placed in a pen just days before he was killed, and the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources has stated that the activity was not covered by state wildlife laws because Fred was a domestic pig.   Dale Bartlett, deputy manager of animal cruelty issues for The Humane Society of the U.S. said that Fred was not a game animal—he was a pet, and he was cruelly mistreated and killed by an unskilled hand under the direction of a group of adults, all of whom had it in their power to prevent that suffering from occurring. The Society is urging the Clay County District Attorney to investigate and bring animal cruelty charges in this ‘monster pig’ matter. The Alabama state cruelty statute provides that a person commits a misdemeanor if he or she subjects any animal to cruel mistreatment, as long as he or she has custody of the animal.  According to news reports, “Fred” was placed in a 150 acre pen and killed following a three hour ordeal including being shot eight times.  In 2006, the Alabama legislature passed a law which prohibits the hunting of native game mammals, any species of animal non-indigenous to the state, and tame mammals under conditions in which the animal does not have a reasonable opportunity to evade the hunter. This includes animals that are tied, staked, hobbled, or caged and animals that have been released from confinement less than 10 days.  Humane Society officials said that the circumstances surrounding “Fred’s” death violated both the spirit and the letter of Alabama’s canned hunt laws.
