Daaaaaw: Disabled Piglet Gets A Lil K'NEX Wheelchair

February 11, 2013

This is Chris P. Bacon, a rudely named piglet who was born without the use of his back legs. But now he cruises around like a pro thanks to the K'NEX wheelchair fashioned for him by Florida veterinarian Dr. Len Lucero. Think 'Charlotte's Web' but with zero spiders and anything else that happened in the book.

If there is one complaint that viewers have, however, is that the wheels seem too light for Chris. However, the vet has since weighed the wheels down by about two pounds, and the wheels work better now. At some point, he will graduate to a larger wheelchair donated by the group known as Handicapped Pets.

Daaaaaaaw, how precious. "I'm still gonna eat bacon." I know you are.

Hit the jump for a shot of the lil piggy (possibly the one who went 'wee wee wee' all the way home) after passing out, and several videos of him in action.

Thanks to beeps, who's never seen a pig in a wheelchair but has seen a lady pushing her cat down the sidewalk in a stroller.
