Hot Wheels! Paraplegic Porcupine Gets Wheelchair Made from Plumbing Pipes

Too cute

A wheelchair made out of plumbing pipes is giving a paraplegic porcupine in Brazil a new chance at life.

KTVU reports via RuptlyTV that the disabled animal at a Piracicaba city zoo in Sao Paulo had been rescued from a nightclub about a month ago. It was going to be put down, but then zoo workers figured out how to make the wheelchair, which reportedly only cost $5 to put together.

Perhaps it won’t be long before some Internet user takes this footage and does a Chamillionaire remix.
