Pig walks on front trotters after being born with no back legs

LETTER OF THE DAY: Housing - more needs to be done

Have your say

An adorable miniature pig born with no hind legs has learned how to walk on its front trotters - and now has a tiny WHEELCHAIR to get around.

Miracle the pint-sized porker taught himself to ‘handstand’ walk after being born with deformed stumps for rear legs.

His careers at Colorado Cutie Pigs in the US have now bought him a tiny wheeled frame which straps onto his body and allows Miracle to pull himself along.

A spokesperson for the centre said: “We didn’t think he would live as moms usually abandon the ‘sick’ ones.

“Babe did not though. We watched as he figured out how to walk on his front legs in a matter of a few minutes. He’s a strong little guy.”
