Meet Chris P. Bacon

Chris P. Bacon is here in the ABC Action News Studio this morning!

Dr. Len Lucero inherited the baby pig when a woman brought him to the Eastside Veterinary Hospital in the Central Florida city to have him put to sleep.

Chris P. is disabled; his little hind legs don't work.

"She wanted to do the most humane thing possible," said Lucero.
"She was distraught. She was crying up a storm, and I said, 'We've got options here,'"

Lucero adopted the pig and named him Chris P. Bacon, then made him a wheelchair using his son's K'nex toys.

The rest -- as they say -- is history! And his YouTube video has gotten them almost a million hits so far!
