Never Slap A Porcupine


Never slap a porcupine. Otherwise you could end up looking like someone who embodies the magical power of transforming his own hand into a push broom. That was the unfortunate fate of a 50-year old Brazilian man who tried to shoo away what he thought was an opossum by slapping the animal with his hand. The result was a trip to the hospital to remove nearly 400 quills along with getting a tetnus shot and three rounds of anesthetic.

The man is currently recovering and the porcupine is reportedly still hanging around the neighborhood.
