    Porcupine In Goshen

    Was out with Frank last Friday in Goshen on the side of a dirt road drinking from a puddle after the rains. Frank went to get a picture as it climbed a tree for safety. Frank did not get hit, lol.

    Anyone else see them?

    Am I the only one who didn't know that porcupines can climb trees? We don't have porcupines around here.

    Frank is like Jim to your Marlin Perkins
    I posted a thread about something very similar, but I think they agreed mine was a woodchuck...which I also didn't know clime trees. I saw a raccoon once climb straight up a tall tree like a squirrel.
    I guess every animal around here can clime.
