ORLANDO, Florida (WESH) — Since disabled pig Chris P. Bacon gained fame online a few months ago, he’s also gained some weight and a new wheelchair.
The pig was born with hind legs that don’t work, so he gets around on wheels, instead.
Veterinarians didn’t expect him to live, but he was adopted by Dr. Len Lucero.
“His whole story is inspiring. He’s like the little engine that could,” Lucero said.
A YouTube video turned the pig into an Internet sensation five months ago. Since then, he’s gained size and increased his public profile.
The pig has been part of several charity events. He’ll soon be the subject of a new children’s book.
