I'm having a hard time seeing this as anything more than an illustration of how monumentally stupid that dog is. The quills are a purely defensive weapon. The dog couldn't have gotten all 500 in her face with just one attack, so she must have struck at the porcupine over and over again, hurting worse and worse each time, and in all this, the instinct to retreat never kicked in. She quite literally has so many quills in her face that you can't tell what she looks like.

I like dogs, but that is one dumb dog.

You can't blame the dog for doing what it's bred to do. It's got a high prey drive and uses its strong jaws to grip and hang on. Those loose folds of skin are there to protect the vital areas of the head and neck, which they did. And it has a high pain tolerence. So it saw some prey, bit and hung on.

The trick to taking quills out is to cut them in half first. They are hollow and cutting them lets the air out. This relaxes the quill and helps flatten the barb back in making it easier to pull it out.

> The porcupine impaled all three dogs

No, the dogs impaled themselves. The porcupine did not attack them. They just turn backwards to their attackers and let it come what may and slowly retreat as they can. One poster asked what happens to a wild animal and the short answer is that it doesn't happen. Wild animals, with a few exceptions, leave them alone. What's kind of sad about dogs is that they don't seem to learn. Seems that the dogs that attacked porcupines where we lived did it over and over although none were as stupid as this dog and made what is obviously repeat attacks as in this case. So the dogs where I lived learned after the first attack (and then forgot the lesson after a few days).

So was this the protest over the Defense of the Marriaging Act or something? Because it just does not seem to be that this would be the effective tactic.
