Bulldog recovering after run-in with porcupine

Bella the bulldog learned the hard way not to mess with a porcupine.

Veterinarians in Oklahoma had to remove more than 500 needles from the poor pooch's face after a recent confrontation.

It seems the porcupine was using a pond in Bella's backyard to stay cool in the summer heat.

Next time, we're guessing Bella will give the other animal a little more personal space.
