What should I do if I find a porcupine on my property?

Porcupines on Your Property: Handling the Situation Encountering a porcupine might be surprising, but it's manageable. Here's what you need to know:

Stay Calm: Porcupines are generally non-aggressive and won't attack unless they feel threatened.

Keep Your Distance: Porcupines have sharp quills that they can release if they feel threatened. Avoid getting too close to avoid accidental quill injuries.

Fun Fact: Porcupines' quills are modified hairs that have microscopic barbs at the tips, making them difficult to remove once embedded.

Porcupine Seasons: Porcupines are active year-round, but their nocturnal nature means they're more active at night.
