Inca the bull terrier with quills embedded in her muzzle
It almost doesn’t look real, but beneath those bristles is the large, egg-shaped head of a bull terrier. This is what happened when said canine messed with the wrong animal – a porcupine that made a pin cushion out of the dog’s muzzle, piercing it with literally thousands of its sharp-tipped spines. “What do you get when a pitbull picks a fight with a porcupine? A bald porcupine,” went the jokes when these pictures first circulated, but this encounter was no laughing matter either for the misidentified dog or its prickly opponent. What’s more, this was no isolated incident.
