DETROIT -

A disabled piglet is melting hearts across the web.

The pig, named Chris P. Bacon, was born without the use of his back legs.

A video of Bacon trying out his homemade wheelchair, made out of toy parts, was posted on YouTube by Dr. Len Lucero.

Images of the 10-day-old piglet soon gained a devoted following online.

Bacon even has a Facebook page, under the name Chris P Bacon Pig on Wheels.
