Let's hear it for Porcupines

There are porcupines in the area. People who hike up to the Bugaboo glacier are advised to wrap chicken wire around their cars so that the porcupines won't chew their tires and and car hoses while they are trekking.

My most personal experience was helping pull quills out of my dogs muzzle after he had too close an encounter with a porcupine. Very nasty!

Awe, such a cute little nasty guy he is though! Well done!

Love him, and his beady little eye;)

Wow Paula - what a perfect rendition of a porcupine! I just love it.

Back when I worked as a vet tech, I pulled a lotta those quills!
