Have you met Stickers? He’s the notorious porcupine that lives at the Telluride Ski Resort. This story is circulating today:
“Workers at a Colorado ski resort said they put up a sign warning skiers to be on the lookout for a food-begging porcupine while descending the slopes.
The Telluride Ski Resort ski patrol put up the sign, which reads “Caution: leaping attack porcupine,” because Stickers the porcupine is nearsighted and sometimes has trouble telling fingers apart from the food offered to him by skiers, KMGH-TV, Denver, reported Tuesday.
Stickers, who was first spotted hanging around the resort last season, has become the star of at least 16 YouTube videos taken by Telluride visitors.”
