The staff has named it Quillow and comes from a wildlife rehabber after its mother was hit by a car. At the time of the accident, Quillow was only a few weeks old.

The individual who took the porcupine in needed to find it a new home after it became too familiar with people to live on its own.

Executive Director Anthony Mason says they are happy to take the animal in and will have it join education programs in the near future.
