Can anyone tell me how to find & dispose of a porcupine. Getting tired of pulling the quills out of the dumb dog. TIA

Rusty , Some dogs once they get into a porcupine they'll do it every time . Must tork
them off and hate porkys . Don't know how you
would break them of it .
Good luck
Al

Take an old board soak it. Then and rub a lot of salt into it Then throw it out into the yard at night. this will bring them in to eat the board. Once thay are in the open. Well I will let that up to you. I prefer lead.

You might check, in some states Porcupines are
protected since they are the one animal that someone lost in the woods with no equipment can
kill and eat. Raw if necessary. Some of the Mountain Rescue members told me that in practicing their survival skills they had done just that and that even raw, the liver was delicious.
Vets will tell you that a dog never learns to let Porcupines alone. The Porky hurts him and the next time he see one he is going to try to get even.
