Meet Chris P. Bacon: The Pig In A Wheelchair

I’ve never really associated pigs with the word cute because generally when I think of pigs..this is what I imagine:

But then, a recent video that I saw on YouTube made me change my mind. Okay, and he’s a piglet, not really a pig.

And he is SO ADORABLE!!

Here’s introducing..

Chris P. Bacon is a pet piglet who was born without the use of his hind legs and depends on a wheelchair to get around. In January 2013, his owner, veterinarian Dr. Len Lucero, began posting videos of Chris to YouTube, where the animal gained online fame for his disability as well as his K’nex wheelchair.

Chris P. Bacon was born on January 13th, 2013 and soon after, his previous owner brought the newborn piglet to the Eastside Animal Hospital in Florida asking if it could be euthanized due to a congenital defect affecting its back legs. After being examined by veterinarian Dr. Len Lucero, the pig was found to be otherwise healthy and instead of putting the animal down, Lucero brought the pig home with him to his farm, already home to goats, horses, dogs and cats, and built it a makeshift wheelchair out of his son’s K’nex blocks. On January 27th, Lucero uploaded the first video of Chris P. Bacon to YouTube (shown below) where it amassed nearly 600,000 views in just over two weeks.
