Disabled piglet gets a toy wheelchair
A disabled pet piglet called Chris P Bacon - with his own 'toy' wheelchair - looks set to become a star on the internet.
The ten-year-old pig has his own Facebook page and has already attracted more than 1,000 followers.
And fans of the little piglet are following his progress on YouTube where clips have notched up thousands more hits.
Owner Len Lucero says Chris P Bacon was born with a congenital defect which means he has no use of his hind limbs.
He has made him a two-wheeled harness out of a children's K'Nex building set which he is using to get around.
Mr Lucero says the Walkin' Wheels organisation which helps disabled pets has kindly donated him a "cool wheelchair".
But he added: "Chris weighs 2lbs so he is too small now but should grow into it before long. For now we'll have to stick with K'Nex."
what do you think?
I have never heard of a 10 year old piglet before - nor indeed a ten year old pig of any sort who will grow further. He is indeed a rarity! I have to add, though, he looks as uncomfortable as hell trying to move about in that contrapion. Poor piggy.
Awwwwwww bless that dear little piggy. Surely they mean 10 month old not 10 years old. He is sooooo cute xxxxxxxxxx
I agree with you there.Bless it's little heart so cute.
I think it's his little trotters that are so endearing. They are very cute! I hope he has a better (and longer) life than my poor Wig. Judging by the background in the video, I'd say he's in for a life of luxury!
He is very sweet but looks more like ten weeks old, if i'm any judge of a pig! The Konnex contraption doesn't look very stable and i can't help but wonder how he's gonna manage when he's a huge full grown beastie.
I'm thinking trailer? :-) xx
Ten days old !. I would have dont the same and have done similar but the problem will only get much bigger and unless people are prepared to look after this pig for a very long time not sure its fair , but its heart wrenching and in most peoples nature to help.
Thank you for using my video:) I hope you all enjoyed it. Chris is a little piggy with a lot of attitude. At the time of the video he was 10 days old. He is growing fast, now about 3.5 lbs. Since then modifications were made, that was a first draft, but so damn cute!! Thanks again.
All life is sacred, I think it's great! :-)
Len what wieght was he when he was born and can i babysit sometime?
Aww! Want him! He looks happy, obviously well loved, can't fault it! :-)
Would look great in a baguette with some tommy sauce :-p
Lol! ....not chris tho!
looks young for 10 years olld think someones tellin porkies
He's just been to the cinema to see 'From rasher with love'
In which his co-star was Kevin Bacon :)
Oh brill, you two! :-)
Unfortunately critics have referred to Chris as being a bit of a "ham" actor :D
I can't stop watching the video. He is sooooooo adorable. :)
