Untitled[edit]

I have experience hunting these porcupines. You chase them at night on a pick-up truck with a spotlight. When one is spotted, you drive furiously at it, and when near enough, jump down, chase it, and hit it on the head with a stick. Their skulls crush easily. They are a nuisance on farms, as they dig up fields and chew through irrigation pipes. Their meat isn't generally eaten, except by some farmworkers, but it is quite tasty. The quills are used for handicrafts, which tourists buy for exorbitant prices. All this is just to make it clear that they do NOT freeze when attacked. They run away as fast as they can, which is quite fast. They will sometimes suddenly stop for a moment in the middle of a pursuit, in the hope that it might catch the pursuer off guard, leading him/her to run into the backward-facing quills. I don't know if this is natural behaviour with animal predators as well, but I would assume so. Someone with some sources for all this, and a better way of putting it, can include it in the article.
