After a car in front of him hit a porcupine, Jared Buzzel unknowingly turned himself into a hero and veterinarian all in one.

The poor little porcupine was pregnant when she was hit and shortly thereafter she passed away. When Jarred learned this he did an emergency C-section. Jared said he "Cut the sack open and out fell the [baby] porcupine.” Then he, “Cut the umbilical cord, put it in a hat.” Jared said, “We thought it was dead, then I started massaging it… it started breathing.”


Since then, Jared has been taking care of the orphaned animal, and feeding it baby formula around the clock from his little girl’s toy baby-doll bottle.

“It’s adorable,” he says.

Jared says he plans on handing the baby porcupine over to a licensed wildlife rehabilitator.
