Cuddly Porcupine to Be Pink-Slipped by Cuddle Guv


Maybe you’ve heard that Cuddle Guv Paterson’s budget includes cutting funds to state zoos from $9 mil to $4 mil next year, then eliminating state funding for them altogether in 2010. So the Wildlife Conservation Society, which runs the city’s zoos and aquariums, has made this funny clip where a porcupine gets the pink-slip talk, then waggles off disconsolately. It’s exactly as cute as it sounds. [Boogie Downer]
