CHESTERFIELD Co., Va. (WWBT) - A pig who weighed over 400 pounds in 2019 has lost over 160 pounds.

You may remember Oscar, who we first introduced to you in 2019 when animal control officers in Chesterfield were called to help relocate him to a new home.

The pot-bellied big was over 400 pounds and in desperate need of medical care since he was blind due to the fat on his face.

But fast forward to 2021, Oscar has lost 164 pounds and is able to see again.
