Disabled piglet "Chris P. Bacon" and his homemade wheelchair have become an internet sensation

(WESH) The world's latest Internet sensation, Chris P. Bacon, lives in a small veterinary clinic in Clermont, Florida.

Dr. Len Lucero inherited the baby pig when a woman brought him to the Eastside Veterinary Hospital 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. She was distraught. She was crying up a storm, and I said, 'We've got options here,'" said Lucero.

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

"Then he yelled at me," said Lucero. "He called me a bunch of bad words in pig, and then he calmed down."

Lucero shot a video of what he calls FAAPT: First Attempt at Pig Transportation.
