One of my church members sent me the photograph below of a pit-bull who was set loose by his owner to attack a porcupine that was rooting up the garden in the backyard. The battle between bulldog and porcupine lasted about an hour in small town in Southern California. The pit-bull is known for both his bravery and tenacity; the porcupine is known for the ability to repel all attacks while stealing his food. The porcupine ultimately last the battle, but the pit-bull paid a high price . .
A vet sedated the dog, and then removed a total of 1,347 quills. The dog's owner now has a garden that is lush and fruitful - thanks to his pit-bull.
