Porcupine

Posted on Wed 19 August 2009 at 09:41

We had this little visitor to our barn a couple of days ago.

He was just sitting in the barn large as life. He didn't seem atall fazed by us.

Luckily the dog was up at the house and didn't encounter him. We are only just putting the smell of skunk behind us. Porcupine quills embeded in the dogs face is something we can definately do without.

 

So big

They look kinda cute and "fluffy" from here - don't think a dog's face would agree !

speaking to our neighbours yesterday - their lab cross got into a fight with a porcupine and ended up at the vets with a mouth, nose and gums full of quills - poor thing and not an inexpensive way to spend Sunday afternoon at the Emergency Vet cover!

Vet told her that dogs often won't back off either - once the porcupine has hurt them, they want to get their own back and keep going in for more !!!

Hi Anne

I am sooo glad that the dog didn't come into contact with the porcupine. He costs enough with his medication for his seizures without having to undergo quill extraction.
