Porcupine drops in

This porcupine hides in the branches of an evergreen tree not far from the entrance to Cherry Lane Shopping Centre recently. The large rodent was spotting crossing Warren Avenue and was later treed by some passersby. The animals are not often seen in urban areas and are nocturnal by nature.  - Mark Brett
