There now seems to be a question whether the pitbull puppy or the uncaged ferret chewed four toes of a Louisiana baby while her parents slept.
The month-old baby girl was injured Dec. 10 while her parents, Christopher and Mary Hansche, were asleep. They were awakened by the baby's cries, they said. The husband blamed the dog but the wife is sure it was the ferret.
The parents were jailed for child desertion and criminal negligence and remain in jail in lieu of $50,000 bond each. No matter which pet was involved, the charges will remain because the baby was “injured by an animal while in the custody of the parents.”
The baby has been released from the hospital and is in state custody. Meanwhile the state is waiting for the results of a drug hair analysis on the parents.
Thanks to Denny for this update.
