Baby Porcupine Has Hiccups

It was not just a case of a miraculous birth on the highway but also one of being alive and enjoying life. That is in short the gripping story of Charlie, the baby porcupine, who was born on Route 20 and is today an attraction in the Medicine River Wildlife Centre, Spruce View, Innisfail. When rescued by an RCMP constable Charles Lambright, it was still tied to its dead mother by the umbilical cord. Charles had hit the mother porcupine on the Route 20 and, when he tried to move the carcass from the road, he discovered the newborn. He separated it from its mother and carried it home where he and his wife began caring for it. Today the one-month baby porcupine is a bundle of joy and a sort of celebrity. The Medicine River Wildlife Centre, Spruce View, Innisfail is a special hospital that takes care of injured or orphaned wild animals before returning them back to the wild.
