My Bionic Pet

Meet Chris P. Bacon, Pig in a Wheelchair

When a piglet, born with unusable back legs was brought to veterinarian Dr. Len Lucero’s clinic to be euthanized, the Florida vet built a wheeled harness from some of his son’s old toys. The porcine pet Chris P. Bacon has since graduated to a wheelchair originally built for dogs, having outgrown his first homemade device.
