Porcupines as pets :O

Well, We had someone move in a few days back, lives down the street, and I saw him walking an animal one day, I thought it was a dog from a far, but upon closer inspection i realized it was a Porcupine! I asked, and he confirmed it. Apparently its not illegal to Own them, but finding a breeder is almost impossible, i talked abit, he said he was very friendly, tame, loving, and only needled him once because he stepped on his leg. I just wanted to know if anyone had heard of this, or am i just living in the stone ages and this goes on everywhere lol?

I know of a couple of porcupine breeders here in the US, but none in the Pacific Northwest. I would be scared to have one, LOL!
