 Meet Chris Bacon, a Wheelchair Pig and His Kind-hearted Veterinarian

A Clermont pig, Chris P. Bacon who has become extremely popular on the internet made an appearance before his fans in his wheel chair that will give him mobility and a fresh lease of life.

His specialty is that he was adopted by Eastside Veterinary Hospital's Dr. Len Lucero, after he was born handicapped without the ability to use his hind legs.

Though his owner had requested mercy killing for Chris Bacon, the doctor felt that he could help the piglet get mobile. He realized that the piglet was not ill, he was only deformed.

The doctor has now posted a video of the pig on Youtube where he shows Chris on a contraption made from K'NEX toys. Chris Bacon is now ready for a small wheel chair, and in the words of the doctor, "He will use the wheels as his back legs. Instead of walking with them, he will roll across."

Students and teachers are touched by the compassion of the doctor who said, "Something like this doesn't happen every day. I think I'd be a fool not to try to take him and spread the happiness."
