DANVILLE, N.H. (AP) -- A porcupine is getting around a bit easier after a New Hampshire Fish and Game conservation officer and local police chief helped pull an arrow out of its back.
Danville Police Chief Wade Parsons tells the Eagle-Tribune (http://bit.ly/pCeYJm ) the animal had to stop walking every four or five feet Thursday. He couldn't move forward without getting caught in the brush.
Conservation officer Chris McKee used a snare pole to rein in the porcupine - and took care not to come into contact with his quills. He said the arrow had missed muscle and bone.
The porcupine ran off afterward. McKee said the animal had been chattering and seemed to be in good health, otherwise.
