Buster and the Porcupine
Once on SCAR’s transport, the former owner texted the driver and said that Buster might have one quill left in his mouth from the previous week. Once Buster arrived at SCAR, they took him to the vet immediately. With such a swollen mouth, he couldn't eat or drink. He went under anesthesia and the vet removed over 30 porcupine quills from his mouth, tongue and throat. He would have died if not taken into SCAR’s care.
