KANSAS CITY, MO. — You guys remember that story we did earlier this year about the infant who lost seven fingers after a ferret chewed them off? Well now the parents of that kid have been charged with with felony child endangerment.

For those of you didn’t read about it, police were called to the home of Ryan and Carrie Waldo after receiving a call that their 4-month old had been attacked by the family’s pet ferret.

They told responding officers that while Ryan was asleep in his bed, and Carrie was asleep in a nearby chair, the ferret got into where the boy was sleeping and started chewing off all his fingers. By the time the couple heard their son’s cries, he only had three fingers left; two thumbs and a pinkie.

I had hoped that this was just a case of an animal getting loose in the house…hell, we’ve seen it here recently with a pair of raccoons. But this time it was worse than an infant being attacked by a loose animal while the parents slept. Prosecutors say they have cell phone records that not only prove that the couple were not sleeping at the time of the attack, but that they weren’t even home.

In March, detectives obtained cells phone records and GPS location documents that indicated both phones belonging to the couple were calling and texting each other from several different areas away from their home while their infant was screaming bloody murder as a ferret ate all his fingers. The couple’s landlord told police that four days before this incident, the Waldos wanted to give the ferret away after it had bitten their baby twice, but obviously ended up keeping it.

Their bond was set at $5,000 each and a preliminary hearing is set for July 13. The judge ordered they have no contact with their children.

    This is what comes of using ferrets as babysitters–you may think they work cheap because they don’t charge an arm and a leg, but that whole “lack of opposable thumbs” thing is a problem, especially when they have to babysit infants.

    On a more serious note, how is the baby doing?

    Nah,not an arm and a leg;Just a few fingers.

    Let’s see… hmmm… They tried to give the ferret away because it had bitten the child, but they didn’t try the animal shelter or a rescue service?

    The people need to go to jail and this poor child needs someone to nurture it in a loving and responsible home.

    Sublime irony.

  • LeaveMeBe

    Drug run would be my guess.

    I guess keeping it caged until they could rehome it was a concept too difficult for them to grasp. Or they could have given the baby away.

  • Anonymous

    Ferrets belong in a cage if they are not under direct supervision.  Babies belong under close watch and direct supervision. 

    They must not have been home.  Neglect all around.  Not the ferrets fault, not the babies fault. The baby AND the ferret should be taken away. 

    Who in the hell is out of earshot of their brand new baby.  A whimper would warrant a crib check.  Screaming cries of a 4 mo getting eaten alive warrants abuse/neglect charges.

    This pisses me off.

    I knew there was no fucking way mom could have been sleeping in the same room as the baby when this happened, like she originally claimed.  

    Lock them up until they are past breeding age.  There’s no correcting that level of stupid and, unfortunately, it’s inheritable.

    No, not cut off.  Chewed off.  Preferably by a plague infested rat.

    I cannot even think of any emergency that would require leaving an infant home alone — and I have 4 kids so I get all the things that can happen. But to just leave him home alone? And with a loose animal on top of that! Granted, my oldest kid is now 5 — but even then we were warned to never leave pets unattended around babies because you just don’t know how they react.

    My mom had a ferret when I was growing up… nasty little thing, but it never tried to eat anyone. It was so hungry he had to eat the baby?! 
    Those parents should lose their fingers. And toes.

  • LeaveMeBe

    And genitals.

  • FrikkenFrak

    Right, LMB. How about a simple goddamn CAGE for it until they could give it away.

    Hopefully, a cage is what they’ll be getting….for their own dumb asses in JAIL.

  • FrikkenFrak

    “I cannot even think of any emergency that would require leaving an infant home alone”

    So right on that!   Having kids means resigning yourself that, like it or not, you have to pack them up and take them with you wherever you are going….for years and years.

    But I don’t think there WAS any emergency here..well, not the kind of situation you or I might call an emergency.   Maybe a drug run?

    As the owner of Ferrets we were so careful about shit like this.  We ended up getting them a home a few months back because of finances.  Ferrets are great pets, but when ignorant people like this aren’t even home to supervise their pet and baby I hope that they never see the light of day.

    You would think the ferret would have been satisfied after chewing all the mothers hair off.

    It may have gnawed on the top of her ears by the looks of things, too.

    Ive had a few ferrets over the years..  They’re fun little critters, and most of them, if handled properly and trained not to bite (the best way to do this .. some people are going to think this is mean, but really you’re just preventing a biting habit..  is to touch .. not poke..  the back of the ferrets throat if they bite your fingers.. It makes them gag and if you do it enough, they get the point) ..  are very sweet. That being said, ferrets are not really pets to be kept around babies, let alone unsupervised children..  You could have the sweetest ferret in the world and the thing will either playfully bite your kid, or shit in every corner of your house, which isn’t good for a kid either..   

    Quick story – I had doves and ferrets at one point..  Someone neglected to tell me that they had placed the ferret back in it’s cage in my room..  so I figured it was safe to allow the dove out and about so she could stretch her wings..  Well, the dove landed on top of the cage, and before I knew it the ferret was RIPPING the birds leg off..   They’re pets, yes, but never fully domesticated..  I can easily see how a ferret might chew on a helpless toddlers fingers..

    They are nasty little fuckers. I know this because I watched Bright Lights, Big City with Michael J. Fox.  Not only that, they smell like rancid toilet sitting urine that’s never been flushed on a hot summers day…even if they are de-scented.  I would get a pet rat before I got a ferret.  My parents never allowed us to have any rodents with a tail growing up, except hamsters, because my mom had a traumatic childhood experience (its actually pretty funny).  My mom loved chihuahas.  A neighborhood friend said she had a bunch of baby chihuahas in her basement.  So she and the girl would go play with them all the time…she later found out that she was not playing with chihuahas but giant rats…

    I originally read this story on a different site, but the update makes things make a lot more sense. No wonder mom and dad didn’t here the baby’s screams, poor little mite, to now have to go through life with no fingers, or possible prosthetics. Hell, I don’t even like leaving the boys alone to walk a few minutes to and from the mailbox when they are taking a nap, and these twits left the baby alone with a loose animal that had already bit the baby twice.

    I have to agree to disagree.We had ferrets for years and if descented and bathed often and their cage properly maintained they do not smell bad.That being said you have to find ones with the right temperment.And you (of course) never leave any animals alone with babies.

    I have a cage for my ferret why wouldn’t anyone have a cage for their ferret?! I understand that some people leave theirs out all the time but I have a 3yr old if left him unsupervised long enough around it he would probably unintentionally smother it to death or squeeze it’s guts out or accitentally step or jump on it. He is pretty good with her but he does like to play a little rough at times. I cage her for her protection.

    What is the point of this site, exactly? I was looking for a way to contribute funds towards a reward for a recent kidnapping and I wound up here. I don’t want to navigate the site further to verify what I suspect. Seems to be gutter pornography for the kind of people who might actually enjoy a kidnapping for some sort of perverted and soulless thrill. So sorry for your lives having gone in a deranged direction. Even if you’ve been damaged, what we rejoice in and put our hearts and minds toward is a choice, ultimately. You are making your own minds the horror show coming here to celebrate the damaged and lost people who prey on others. Life has far more to offer. Hope you all find that out someday.

  • Athena

    LMAO.  What you suspect must be wildly inaccurate, since your comment doesn’t make much sense.  No part of what we do celebrates predators.  But, I suppose you might have figured that out had you bothered to navigate the site further before making such a ridiculous comment… On a thread that has nothing to do with kidnapping, no less. :P

  • LeaveMeBe

    So, you wouldn’t navigate the site further to find out what we were all about but you took the time to create a screen name and write a paragraph denouncing this site and us members without knowing much of anything and you want to talk to us about how deranged we are, what life has to offer and what we’re missing out on? Lucky for you I woke up and the coin landed on heads this morning so I will nicely tell you that you are wrong on all counts and I will refrain from mentioning exactly what you can do with your assumptions and how very little your opinions mean to us. As to your question about the point of this site, I’m afraid it would be way too much for your small mind to handle so let’s skip that part, mmmmkay?

  • Jemimabean

    I wouldn’t QUITE use the term “celebrate.” That would imply that any one of us find any number of the horror stories featured here a cause for joy, which I can assure you, we do not. Firstly, a great number of these sordid little tales never make it to national, or international news. And quite frankly how is anything here NOT more newsworthy than a corrupt politician or how many babies Jessica Alba has? Secondly (and this ties in nicely with Firstly) too many people walk around assuming that baby rapers and tweakers and all of their ilk are an anomaly, but they’re not. They’re the people we see on the street every single day. We need to be informed to be able to be vigilant, and we need to be able to take the piss out of these dregs of society in order to feel some sort of power. Because God knows, the justice system does not do enough to punish them.
