The woman decided to examine it, after which she made a startling discovery.
Raylene from Saskatchewan, Canada was driving home from work last week when she noticed a ball of wool in the snow on the side of the road.
She decided to inspect a strange object, after which she made a startling discovery: a hungry porcupine is struggling to get out from under the snow.
Realizing that the animal was in trouble, Raylene acted immediately.
When Raylene got closer, she saw that the animal was lying on its back, literally nailed to the snow with its own needles.
She told The Dodo that the porcupine tried his best to help himself, but Raylene was afraid he wouldn’t be able to get out of the snow trap on his own.
In the end, it became obvious that Raylene’s assumptions were correct, so she decided to help the poor fellow.
She took out a small spatula and cautiously approached the porcupine. With the help of a tool, she was able to turn the animal on its stomach.
Then she moved on to the next task, which without her help was clearly more difficult for the porcupine.
The animal wanted to cross the snowdrifts and return to the forest. However, due to the large amount of snow, he was unable to do so despite repeated attempts.
Again, with the help of a snow shovel, Raylene cleared a path for the prickly creature, which eventually returned to the forest.
