A Pitbull decided he would battle a Porcupine behind his house here in Southern California. But being both brave and stupid, he ultimately learned the hard way that he can't always win, no matter how tough you are.

A vet sedated the dog, and then removed a total of 1,347 quills.

The dog survived, and hopefully learned a valuable lesson.

Don't mess with Porcupines

(I do wonder how many quills remained on the Porcupine, though.)
