Piglet Uses A Tiny Wheelchair Made From K'Nex!

Meet Chris P Bacon (HA). Chris was born with a defect that left him without use of his hind legs, so his owner, veterinarian Dr. Len Lucero, made him a toy wheelchair out of K’Nex!

Chris was brought into Dr Lucero’s clinic by a woman who wanted to euthanize him. Len decided to bring him home.

Len told ABC News:

“I remembered my son had a bunch of K’nex, and I wondered if I could make him something to walk on, so I just made a real quick wheelchair. We put him on it the next day and I was just trying to see if it would work. He didn’t like it at all at first. But he started to calm down, so I started filming. He’s so cute you can hardly take bad footage of him.”

UPDATE: donated a new wheelchair to Chris! It’s the first time the company used a wheelchair on a piglet. Just look how happy he is:

  • Tiffany Domingos Brennaman

    This is the cutest, sweetest thing I have ever seen. I thought I’d seen it all but this takes the cake.

  • Amelia Shister

    His name is Chris P. Bacon!!!! Get it!?!?!?

  • Santina Muha

    This pig is my homeboy. <3

  • Dana von Herrmann

    I think if a bit of weight was added to the rear, it’d keep him better grounded and he’d still able to wheel freely.

    oh my goodness, how cute is mr. bacon? It really makes you believe in humanity again everytime you see someone go out of their way to make an innocent animals life worth living :)..GREAT STORY :)!!!
