    Yes I think that is because the, quills are hooked and would stick in your hands without the gloves . They are designed not to come out easily . Not sure if you need surgery to remove them ?
    The reason porcupine quills have to be pulled out with extreme care is because porcupine quills have sharp barbs. The sharp barbs pull the porcupine quills deeper and deeper into the flesh of the unfortunate victim, so quickly removing porcupine quills is paramount. Because of the barbs, porcupine quills require special care in removal since twisting or turning a quill can cause a considerable amount of pain and damage to an already injured dog or cat.
