Animals Accused Of Chewing On Baby's Toes To Be Adopted

KSLA News 12 has an update to the story about the one-month-old baby whose toes were chewed off by one of two family pets.
Homes have now been found for the pit bull puppy and the ferret. Both animals have been at the Bossier City Animal Control Office since the baby was injured back in December.
The pit bull will be adopted by a pit bull rescue group, while a ferret rescue group will take the other animal. Both places are out of state.
It will be a few weeks for before the pit bull will go to its new home. The shelter is waiting for the puppy to get a little older so it can be neutered.
Police say the baby's parents were asleep as the baby sat beside them in a car seat. Sometime that morning, one of the animals chewed off four of the baby's toes.
The parents pled guilty to a charge of child desertion and agreed to let their animals be put up for adoption.
It's unclear right now if the baby has been returned to the parents or is staying with other relatives
