In battle between dog vs porcupine cop loses

Constable Mark Smith could probably be forgiven for his tentative handling of this suspect.

You see, the Calgary Police Service officer ended up in the middle of a brawl between a porcupine and a dog. And in the course of he, he ended up with a mug full of bear spray.

“Neighbours dogs spiked, extensive battle to get it out of our gardens, keeps trying to return, bearspray deployed & wind directs back in my face 😵,” he posted on Twitter Tuesday night.

The fight did eventually end with the cantankerous critter packed away in a plastic bin.

But not for long.

“Mr Porcupine relocated,” wrote Const. Smith, who posted a video of the bad guy’s release.

Not everyone is a fan of the large rodents.

But this porcupine did have some supporters.
