Wheelchair-bound pig a rising star
In many circumstances, a piglet without the use of its hind legs would be put down.
But Chris P Bacon's unusual condition has made him an international star and an inspiration to those with disabilities.
When Chris was born in Florida, a woman brought him into Dr Len Lucero's veterinary office, assuming the animal would be put down.
But when Dr Lucero noticed how the little pig pulled himself along with his front legs he said he couldn't go through with it and brought it home.
The vet built a wheelchair out of some of his son's toys so Chris could move around, then found a dog-sized harness and cart.
Chris is now 22lbs and inspires people around the world. His Facebook page and website recently helped him land a three-book publishing deal.
