The story of the ferret chewing off seven -- SEVEN! -- of an infant's fingers in Grain Valley left a lot of questions unanswered. I didn't crucify the parents because I wanted to see some answers, but others weren't willing to reserve judgment. Kansas City blogger Chimpotle took the parents to task, because how the hell does a ferret get close to a 4-month-old, let
alone munch off seven fingers. The floor is yours, Chimpotle:
I'll rail against the parents. There's no way the baby started crying as his SEVENTH FINGER was being gnawed off. So they probably sat there with the kid crying for who knows how long. And then we have Mr. Ferret, who is running loose around the house, apparently so hungry that seven fingers of another living creature sounded appealing. Then the father threw said ferret so hard that it died. This kid has a bright future of neglect ahead of him.Check out his blog here.
