That hurts. In high school, I was riding an dirtbike and spilled over into a patch of cactus. My girlfriend and two others spent over 4 hours pulling out the thorns. In the article about the dog and porcupine it says the remaining quills will come out. BS!!!!!!!!!

Two years later I still had some imbedded in my butt. I guess they finally deteriorated. I had thousands all over me. They were in my face to my toes. I now stay away from cactus patches. The nice thing about the porcupine quills is that they are long and visible. Those little cactus ones are almost invisible.

Years ago I was deer hunting in upper WI and my friend and I came to a tree with a big mess arround it. Animal droppings but arround the whole trunk. We looked up the tree and he said look a ****, shoot it.
I shot my bow at what was not a **** but a large porcupine and it showered us with needles that are worse to pull out then to put in.
Then it must have just died where I shot it, about fifty feet up.
I didn't know they could just let thoise things fly like that.

Yeah they let those things go fast. I have a friend who's got a pitbull/mastiff mix. That dog is a freakin beast, it goes and plays with those porcupines all the time when it goes for walks in the woods. This dog also leaps over six foot fences pretty easy.
