We’ve all heard the phrase “if pigs could fly,” but what if pigs had wheels? Look no further as this question has been answered by the piglet, Leon Trotsky, a resident at Edgar’s Mission in Victoria, Australia. According to the Huffington Post, he was rescued by Edgar’s Mission after his mother fell on top of him and his siblings at a pig farm. While his siblings didn’t make it, Leon did, but with a crushed femur and severe ligament damage. Things seemed gloomy for the piglet, until the rescue fitted him with his own piggy wheelchair. This wheelchair allowed Leon to heal while also keeping him mobile and active.
