On the night of February 28, eastern North Carolina hunter Jett Webb bagged a massive 7′ long, 500+ lbs wild boar:

One shot is all it took to turn one local man into a hunting celebrity.

It all began when Jett Webb went night hunting in Bertie County on February 28.

Webb says he was sitting up in a tree when he saw what looked like a large, adult boar. He fired one, very well placed shot of his .308 caliber AR-15 rifle.

WITN sat down with the 34-year-old hunter on Tuesday.

Webb recalls, "Heart, lung, yep. That's kind of what we try to go for. Clean kill, dropped him, stoned him right in his tracks."

Pastor Charles L. Worley of Providence Road Baptist Church in Maiden, North Carolina, went on an anti-President Obama rant earlier this month during a sermon. Then he got off topic:

I figured a way to get rid of all the lesbians and queers. Build a great, big, large fence -- 150- or 100-mile-long -- put all the lesbians in there... Do the same thing with the queers and the homosexuals and have that fence electrified so they can't get out... And you know what, in a few years, they'll die.

He ended his sermon with this thought:

God have mercy. It makes me pukin' sick to think about -- I don't even whether or not to say this in the pulpit — can you imagine kissing some man?

Notice the "Amens" from the congregation throughout.

To the bitter disappointment of equal rights advocates across the country, North Carolina voters passed a constitutional amendment late Tuesday that bans marriage between same-sex partners. Amendment One passed with 61 percent of the vote -- or 1.3 million residents in favor.

And it's worse than you think -- the amendment doesn't merely ban gay marriage. The legislation is among the most conservative in the nation, leaving no room for legal recognition of civil unions or domestic partnerships.

President Obama's North Carolina spokesman says the president is "disappointed" by the outcome of the election, but declined to elaborate. Obama is scheduled to sit for an interview with ABC News today, "during which he is likely to discuss his 'evolving' views on the issue," according to the New York Times.
