Coon/Porcupine Question

Driving home yesterday around lunchtime I watched a coon walking down the road. He laid down when I stopped to take a look at him and got back up and started walking away as I drove off.

He had a mouth full of quills. I was told before that if you see a coon with quills in it's mouth, there is a good chance it's rabid.
I was just curious, is that true or an old wives tale?

Thanks

I'd say he's hurting from a face full of quills, nothing more.

when they aren't rabid they know not to mess with a porky, that's what Ive always heard.

A haiku is just like a normal American poem, except it doesnt rhyme and is totally stupid.

Re: Coon/Porcupine Question

ya im not sure why a raccoon would pick that fight. he really has nothing to win either way id be careful.

The early bird gets the worm but the second mouse gets the cheese.
