Somehow, the spiky fella had gotten himself all topsy-turvy — and now his little feet were kicking as he struggled to right himself. Prieb was concerned.
“I stopped to watch and see if he could get up,” she told The Dodo. “Once I realized he couldn’t, I got out to help him.”
Armed with a snow-brush/ice scraper, Prieb gently assisted the porcupine in flipping back over, offering some reassuring words in the process. Moments later, it became obvious how he'd gotten himself into that predicament in the first place, though Prieb helped him over that problem, too.
Here's video she took of the charming rescue.
