While there are a ton of baby animals out there that I am sure it would take no convincing to pick up and play with, there are an equal number of baby animals that we may be a little hesitant to turn to. A clip featuring one of these unconventional choices from the return of the new season of Nat Geo WILD’s “Dr. Oakley Yukon Vet”, premiering this Saturday, September 28th at 9/8c.
In this highly-anticipated new season, Dr. Michelle Oakley continues to make house calls across thousands of square miles in the isolated regions of the Yukon in northern Canada and throughout Alaska, where she’s responding to some of the most unique and challenging cases of her career. From moving bears with tractors and horses with helicopters to castrating angry boars and capturing wild bison, she’ll have to use every trick she knows to save these animals.
This clip from the premiere episode “Blazing Bison” features Dr. Oakley cuddling up to one of the softest, cuddliest animals around — a porcupine! While a porcupine may not be the typical first choice to snuggle up to, this orphaned infant has yet to fully grow his prickly spikes, and is instead covered head to toe in soft fur, which Oakley and her team waste no time indulging in!
