I Picked Up a Thrashing Porcupine... See what happened next!
(Sorry, couldn't help the clickbait title) A couple years ago, I was driving down a narrow driveway through the woods, and came upon a porcupine in the middle of the driveway. It was clearly sick or wounded, thrashing around. So I did what any sensible pers...
