Thick-skinned and not afraid to stand up for itself, one prickly visitor might have thought he was suitable for a government post, but got lost in the Knesset building and ended up in the public bathroom.
Knesset workers called the nearby Jerusalem Bird Observatory, in nearby Sacher Park, to report that the disoriented porcupine was refusing to move.
The advice: Leave the doors open so that he can leave by himself. He’ll find his way home. That’s exactly what happened.
The nocturnal Indian crested porcupine is common in Israel but rarely enters government service.
