A leopard gets itself into a prickly situation when it tries to hunt down a porcupine. Tourists on safari in Kruger National Park in South Africa captured footage of the big cat facing the quilled defenses of its prey. The leopard is persistent and continues to give chase, forcing the porcupine to choose whether to stand its ground or make a crafty escape.
