Somebody sent this to me. I really would like to have it verified by some of yall around that area. (TomBomb or Encoreman) Interesting to say the least.

Before you scroll down!!!!!
Picture in your head how big you think a wolf is. I was thinking a extra large German Sheppard.
Boy was I wrong. And these animals hunt in packs? Yikes!!
The wolf was killed 5 miles north of Hwy 84 @ Hebron, Ms
Who's afraid of the Big Bad Wolf
This bad boy was gunned down in the Hebron Community of Jones Co.,
Weight was supposedly 218 pounds. Big Mutha if you ask me................
:whaaa: :whaaa: :whaaa:






What yall think now???????????? :NO: :tears:

Ireally think its real,but from North of the Border somewhere. I don't know about 218lbs, but it could happen. Not down here for sure.

If the first one is real it is a world record.

Physical characteristics
Gray wolf weight and size can vary greatly worldwide, tending to increase proportionally with latitude as predicted by Bergmann's Rule. In general, height varies from 0.6 to 0.95 meters (24 to 37 in) at the shoulder. Wolf weight varies geographically; on average, European wolves may weigh 38.5 kilograms (85 lb), North American wolves 36 kilograms (79 lb), and Indian and Arabian wolves 25 kilograms (55 lb).[6] Though rarely encountered, extreme specimens of more than 77 kilograms (170 lb) have been recorded in Alaska, Canada,[7] and the former Soviet Union.[8] The heaviest recorded gray wolf in the New World was killed on 70 Mile River in east-central Alaska on July 12, 1939 and weighed 79 kilograms (170 lb),[6] while the heaviest recorded wolf in the Old World was killed after World War II in the Kobelyakski Area of the Poltavskij Region in the Ukrainian SSR, and weighed 86 kilograms (190 lb).

It appears that this is a crop pic. As someone said the camo is not right. I was raised in Hebron, MS and I can tell you for sure that this pic didn't come from there. We have pine trees, normally lob lollies and there definitely aren't any rocks/stones on the ground. Around Leaf River and the Mason Creek area the soil is sandy. Spoof pic.
