Meet 'Chris P. Bacon' The Most Famous Pig In The World: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

 

"Chris P. Bacon has his own website and fan club, 58,000 friends on Facebook and 1.2 million hits on YouTube. Not bad for a wheelchair-riding pig from Florida.

Dr. Len Lucero, a central Florida veterinarian, engineered a little lightweight wheelchair for the young potbellied pig because his rear legs didn`t let him get around."

Not all Internet superstar animals are cats, meet Chris P. Bacon, the cutest and pluckiest pig in cyberspace.

Chris was born without use of his hind legs; fortunately a vet fitted the little porker with a wheelchair that lets him get around.

Watch as Chris rocks his wheelchair, capturing the hearts of millions all over the world.

It`s unfortunate that this piglet was named "Chris P. Bacon"; the wee fellow doesn`t bring to mind delicious krispy bacon, but his indomitable spirit.

Christ isn`t a vacuous publicity hog, he travels all over the country to inspire disabled children.

You go piglet!
