Thanks to Dixie's furmom, Carol Anne, for barking in an update on this Louisiana case against a six-week-old Pit Bull.

Even if it was the ferret, how long since he'd had a good meal? Were they starving the ferret? What is it with this couple?

A little late for the truth, since P/Bs have another black mark on their reputation now, but it is good to see the truth finally coming out!

Here's the upddate from MSNBC on the Louisiana baby toes case.

Mom says ferret, not dog, gnawed off baby toes
Husband blames family pit bull; police say charges still the same regardless

BENTON, La. - A woman jailed after four of her infant daughters toes were gnawed off says the familys pet ferret did it, not their pit bull pup as police had said.

But her husband blames the dog, a city official said.

The way the bite marks were on her foot, the ferret being out of its cage, I knew it wasnt the dog," Mary Hansche told KTBS-TV on Tuesday.

The month-old girl was injured Dec. 10 as Hansche, 22, and her husband, Christopher Hansche, 26, slept; they woke up when they heard her crying. The parents were jailed in lieu of $50,000 bond each, booked with child desertion and criminal negligence.

The husband had blamed the dog and told police the ferret had been in its cage all night, Bossier City spokesman Mark Natale said Wednesday.
