Baby goat learns to walk
An uplifting story coming out of Australia about a baby goat who overcame illness and learned to walk. Last month the story of Frosty the Snow Goat got international attention. The baby goat was born with a life threatening infection that left his hind legs unusable, so caretakers at Edgar's Mission Farm Sanctuary gave him a makeshift wheelchair to get around.
The not-for-profit animal sanctuary gave the young goat love and patience (and a number of antibiotics and painkillers) and now frosty is able to walk on his own. However, despite all the work that Edgar's Mission has done to rehabilitate the baby goat, they credit his health to his own determination.
This isn't the first animal that Edgar's Mission has helped to walk. You might remember Leon Trotsky, whose story went viral in April. Coincidentally, it was this tiny piggy's wheelchair that was lent to Frosty during his recovery.
