Leon on Wheels

There’s no stopping him now! At just over five days old, little Leon Trotsky has more spunk than most who are ten times his size and he has already beaten the odds not once but twice. Being born a ‘farm’ pig, Leon was destined for the plate, but then an accident caused by his injured mum (which claimed the life of two of his siblings) saw Leon up against it again. With his right hind femur both broken and dislocated, plus an injured hock and ligament damage on the other side, things could not have looked much grimmer for the wee chap. But no one told the plucky little Leon that these obstacles of his world should hold him back. His life was precious, and thankfully this was recognised by a kind hearted soul who sought a better outcome for Leon.


But working with tiny bones and fragile piglets is never easy.  Leon proved way too small for the tiniest of carts that would have otherwise taken the pressure off his compromised limbs.  However, necessity is the Mother of invention and coupled with Leon’s determination, here’s the result….

  1. Edgar’s Mission you are truly amazing. If only all the injured and sick animals ended up with you. Your hearts are made of gold.

  2. What kind and compassionate people at Edgar’s Mission. This little fellow has just won his version of tattslotto. I think you should put him in your calendar. xx

  3. Wow Leon’s a star. I’m so so grateful and happy. I just feel to let the world know that Leon’s original birth family are wonderful and loving family. They were not ‘pig farmers’ per se. He is at his 3rd loving home, and we are all so grateful for the way his journey has turned out. Blessings to his caretakers and to Leon.

  4. you people blow me away with your love. You manage to make me smile with your hope in this dark world. THANK YOU for existing from the bottom of my heart.

  5. I cannot tell you how wonderful it is to read the ongoing heart warming stories that Pam tells us. I live near Fremantle and on my way to work regularly see huge trucks with sheep and cattle being taken to the docks for the horrendous live animal export trade. I feel utter despair each time one of these passes me that no matter how hard we try we cannot seem to save these precious souls. I constanly receive emails from Animals Australia, Compassion in World Farming, IFAW etc. showing the crulety of man BUT then I receive one of these beautiful videos and updates from Pam and I feel like they restore my belief in the goodness of people who love animals as much as I do. Thank you Pam, you balance everything back out, you are so precious. I just love your mission statement. Heather
