Porcupine from Klamath Falls

This poor Porc was most likely hit by a car and has been dragging himself along for quite some time. He was brought in to a wildlife rehab facility in Klamath Falls, and they transported him to us the following day.

He has spinal trauma and is having difficulty in his back legs. We’ve been administering a high dose of anti-inflammatory med, along with antibiotics and Vitamin B Complex.

He has improved somewhat in the week he’s been here, but we fear he may not regain full use of his rear legs. A porcupine needs all its legs in order to climb trees.

Have you heard the vocalizations of a Porcupine? It’s quite unbelievable.
