A Man Learns the Hard Way Why You Don't Slap a Porcupine
You shouldn't go around slapping ANY animal. But if you're going to pick an animal to slap, at least pick one that doesn't have built-in anti-slapping technology.
50-year-old Antonio Rodrigues Mororo of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil was having a family party at his house last week, and his wife couldn't get inside . . . because there was an animal blocking the door.
Antonio thought it might be an opossum . . . but it was actually a porcupine. He probably should've known that from all the sharp quills sticking out of its back.
Anyway, Antonio tried to get rid of it by slapping it away . . . and wound up taking 400 quills to the hand.
He went to the hospital and they gave him anesthesia . . . but that wasn't enough to stop the pain. Then they pulled out all the quills and gave him a tetanus shot . . . which is probably no big deal when you've just taken 400 needles.
Antonio is still recovering . . . with a ton of little holes in his hand.
