SALAMANCA, N.Y. (WIVB) - A critter is causing trouble in the southern tier at Allegany State Park. Officials say porcupines are damaging property.
It's believed the animals are chewing through aluminum. Crews are now working to replace several signs that are destroyed.
Park director Brad Whitcomb said, "The big question with us is they're eating this metal and it just kind of mystifies us to what happens to them. Obviously it's being ingested. As they say, what goes in must come out."
Park officials are switching to plastic for some of the signs. They hope that won't be as tasty for the porcupines.
