    Had an aquantiance beg me to let him bring his pitbull with us coyote calling. first I called a mule deer doe ,Which said pit chased . Then a big male coyote was called and hung up at 300 yds I shot him but it didnt kill it instantly ,so he sicked the dog on it which got the asswhuupin of that pits life . then on the way back to the truck the dog growls at a sage brush and jumps in ....after the fight it looked almost as bad.Take it to a vet and have him do the dirty work .

    i have dealt with many a porcupine. around here, for our lack of trees we sure do have a lot of em. i usually come across them during quail season, when we are beating around the sage and deep grass. never met one a point blank load of #6 or 7 1/2 out of the 12 gauge wouldn't handle immediately. i have backed my german shorthair off quite a few, luckily he hasn't got to one yet. buddy of mine lost one that way a couple years ago, it had quills in its throat and died under anesthesia at the vet's. there's a lot of things out there that can get your dog that you don't think of til it happens.

    how did that dog turn out, by the way?
    good, hopefully!

    Randall. I only saw one in my years in practice. A client brought
    it back from a trip to Wisconsin. A few quills in nose and muzzle. This particular dog you have shown obviously should have belonged to Michael Vick. With that dogs attitude (or lack of brains) he could have made Vick more money than playing football.
