This Disabled Piglet Named Leon Trotsky Gets High Marx For His Bravery

May 01, 2014

Everyone, meet Leon Trotsky. He's a three-week-old piglet who became injured a few days after his birth when his mom accidentally fell on him. Luckily, the folks at Edgar's Mission Farm Sanctuary in Willowmavin, Australia, took him in. Soon, a vet fashioned a special miniature wheelchair for him so he could get around with ease.

Maybe one day Leon Trotsky can move to a new Animal Farm with some like-minded comrades. As long as the farm bans ice picks, that is.
