That the post is 5' tall isn't very helpful given that the post is some distance behind the hog and the camera shot is from an angle lower that the hog. It makes it look like the hog is much bigger than it actually is - forced perspective. It looks to be a good-sized hog, but using the post for perspective isn't a good comparison for scale.
