Meet Leon The Wheelchair Piglet - Video

Watch a truly heartwarming video of a pig overcoming the odds.

Leon Trotsky the piglet - named as a pun after the Communist politician - was born on a meat farm.

He was always supposed to become food one day. 

But then his mum fell on him, and shattered his hips and legs.

Leon was taken to Edgar's Mission in Victoria, Australia, and a wheelchair was built for him by vet Pam Ahern.

Pam is optimistic for Leon's future, despite the fact he will need donations for bigger wheelchairs as he grows bigger.

‘If we can put a man on the moon we can surely save a pig with a broken leg,’ she said.

Watch the adorable video above.
