This thing scared the crap out of me. It actually charged at the police officers.

Shot from inside my yard




Shot from neighbors yard.


It disappeared into the jungle that is part of my backyard.










I now have newfound respect for these creatures. One of the officers guessed it at about 30 lbs. That is 30 lbs of spiky death!

I'm just glad it didn't get to my cats/dog/guinea pig/bird.

edit: added a couple more pics.

Okay? Porcupines are pretty common around here. You can usually find porcupine roadkill every 30-45 minutes driving, and they are always out in the back yard or somewhere frolicing.

Stupid bastards...

I was totally prepared for yet another fail when I clicked on this thread, but I can say I have been pleasantly surprised.

Maybe the Porcupine will become like the new *thing* on UG, much like the Lol Wut Pear, Pedo Bear and Icy Hot were in their heyday.

I'm with this guy.

I love porcupines and all, but, living in the middle of Butt****, New Hampshire, I see at least 4 a week.

I'm more in awe at the weapons the cops in your town carry. They look like Springfields (or Colts), and I think they sure as Hell beat the Glocks that the cops in my town carry.

Yeah, I was impressed when the cops that came over were packing 1911's. I was jealous.

And I live in Alaska, everything is bigger here!

Edit: Also, porcupines aren't common here. Unlike moose, which also scare the crap out of me. I had a sow stomp out of the brush 10 feet from where I was standing once, and I practically had to shake out my underwear.

Well, there was a moose in my backyard a few months ago, but that's not that uncommon.

Porcupines on the other hand, are small enough to sneak up on you and shove some spikes up your ass.

This was pretty scary too.

How about just send a ship at the speed up light directly to the sun, and the gravity will pull it towards the sun, thus speeding it over the speed of light.
