That is a small portion of the total. The question is, does anybody know what good is a porcupine? I’m not referring to making soup or roasting them. I want to know of some good reason for not exterminating the lot of them.
Porcupines do make good fisher cat food – but fishers will eat plenty of other things.
They girdle trees – that is not a good reason for their existence.
They chew through doors and walls – those are not good reasons for their existence.
They destroy tools – certainly not a good reason for porcupines.
They catwal in the night – but they are terrible singers and off key.
They make frequent and messy road kill – they’re no match for steel belted radials.
They entice dogs – that is definitely not a good reason for their existence.
So… if you know of a good reason for their continued existence, let me know.
“Perhaps porcupines are an example of divine sick humor.”
