Yo All...Thursday I was out prospecting in the Wickenburg Mountains when a movement in the trail ahead caught my eye...As I approached I saw this fuzzy little guy in real distress...He was very weak and obviously had been struggling for quite a while with this large cholla ball stuck into both of his rear legs and tail...He was pretty bloody and tried to pull himself along with just his front feet, without much success...I grabbed a clump of brush and held him down with it while I used my Puma knife to remove the cholla and the remaining spines...When I let him up, he scampered off a few feet, then stopped and just stood there looking at me...I wanted to get another close up photo of him, but when I moved toward him he ran into and climbed up a cactus...As I advanced on him he got down into the cactus and watched me...Anyhow, it was a cool experience...Cheers, Unc

Great Story, and i thought that I was the only one that got stuck by those dog gone cholla's :laught16::laught16: That is why I tell my wife and kids to always have their gerber or leatherman pliers with them when they go out in the desert. :twocents:

Thanks again

One time in the Tucson area I got the urge! I got my left heal stuck to my buttock! I know how the little guy felt! :laught16:

You done Did Good Sir!

When around that stuff be sure to carrie a hair comb with you at all times. Just get it between the stuff and you and pull like hell!
