        Pig on Wheels

        In this video from the PBS series NATURE, veterinarian Len Lucero shares the story of internet sensation Chris P. Bacon, the pig on wheels. Chris P. Bacon was born with unusable hind legs and was brought to Lucero’s clinic to be euthanized. Lucero decided to adopt the young pig and built him a series of wheelchairs to drastically improve his quality of life.
