Wild boars are considered a pest in Texas, where the animals can cause significant property damage.
So when Joe Clowers spotted a massive boar in the backyard of his suburban Houston home last weekend, he did what plenty of Texans do, he shot and killed it, the Houston Chronicle reported.
Clowers sent a photo of the 416-pound beast to the Gregg County Game Warden.
He also shared a photo of himself standing next to the huge animal.
Wild boar are a big problem in rural Texas and they’re increasingly showing up in suburban areas now, the Chronicle reported.
