Baby Porcupine Rescued From Dead Mother's Womb After Car Accident (VIDEO)

A Maine man went to look for mushrooms, but instead, came home with something much cuter and charismatic.

Jared Buzzell was driving with a friend when he saw a car hit a porcupine ahead of him. He then decided to approach the critter and search for its bezoar -- a stone-like material that some think has medicinal value. Instead of the bezoar, he found an adorable baby porcupine that he is now rearing and rehabilitating at his house.

Until the Buzzells give him away to a licensed wildlife rehabilitator, they are enjoying the extra guest and feeding it every few hours with a baby doll bottle. Could this lucky little porcupine get any cuter!?
