PHOTO: Close and personal with a porcupine

A Ponoka County resident snapped this photo of a porcupine warning them off with its quills.

Not too close: Ponoka County resident Donna Noble photographed this porcupine over the weekend as it warned her not to get too close. At one point it pointed its quills at her but she kept her distance.
