Thistle the PorcupineOver the past few months, Bluefin Bay Family of Resorts has partnered with Wolf Ridge ELC in Finland, MN to bring more education and excitement to our summer activities line-up.Thistle the Porcupine

Among the activities that were introduced this summer gave guests the opportunity to see a real live porcupine up close.

Thistle, pictured right, was adopted at a very young age by Wolf Ridge after his mother was killed by car a motor vehicle. He’s been the resident porcupine up at Wolf Ridge for the past decade plus and does very well around people since he’s been around them almost his whole life.

Last Friday was Thistle’s last visit to the resort of the season. Our guests loved having the opportunity to see him and our staff enjoyed seeing him every week as well. Here is a video of thistle on one of his many trips to Tofte.
