No one knows how Iker, born just 10 days ago on a filthy and crowded meat farm in Spain, ended up with a leg shattered in two places. But because the farmer had no use for a baby goat needing extra care, he was going to kill Iker just days after he entered the world.
After a surgery to help repair his shattered leg, Iker was brought to Mino Valley Sanctuary, where he started to meet the other rescued animals who will be Iker's new family. This will be Iker's forever home.
"He's a real sweetheart." Mino Valley Farm Sanctuary told The Dodo. "Although he may never walk normally, he is expected to make a full recovery."
A tiny goat was born into a world that wanted him dead. But then amazing humans and animals came together to help him survive.
Just look at him now.
