COOS COUNTY, Ore. -- Coos County deputies are looking for a wanted man after their K-9 was struck by hundreds of porcupine quills during the chase on Saturday.

Deputies said Odin was tracking Devin Wilson, 29, of Coos Bay, who is wanted on several felony warrants. A deputy spotted Wilson on Evergreen Lane in the Barview area, and Odin was brought in when Wilson ran.
