Stickers, we hardly knew ye: Telluride porcupine relocated


7NEWS reports that the U.S. Forest Service relocated Stickers, Telluride's resident porcupine, Wednesday because he had taken to aggressively begging every passing skier and 'boarder for food. Since the story hit Denver TV news, the little guy has become a YouTube sensation. Perhaps the friendly porcupine could be the next dramatic chipmunk? (Yes, I know it's actually an evil prairie dog.)

Here's more video of Stickers in action:





I only hope he still remembers how to find normal porcupine food, whatever that may be. Godspeed, Stickers!
