Courtney HutchinsCarlsbad, NM – Courtney Hutchins, 22, was arrested for child endangerment after climbing over a barricade with her 3 year old son, Ethan, to get a closer look at a bobcat.  Apparently she got a little too close as the bobcat was able to scratch the boy’s head badly enough to require 8 skull staples.

Hutchins, her brother LeeVon, and her son were at Living Desert Zoo & Gardens State Park when they decided to climb over a 40-inch high railing.  Once over the outer barrier, they coaxed the cats to the inner fence and pet them.  A bobcat reached through the chainlink, grabbed the boy’s head and pulled him towards it, inflicting serious head wounds on the 3 year old.

Hutchins told police she did not see any of the many signs warning against being dangerously stupid.  She also said she did not know the word “barrier” before she heard police use it.

Feelings of anger and/or homicidal ideations are a natural first reaction to learning how careless and unconcerned for her own child’s welfare this woman could be.  A little snooping on her Facebook, however, reveals a lot.

My overall impression is that she truly was just too stupid to realize how horrifyingly bad an idea it was to have her 3-year-old pet a wild animal.  Quite frankly, this story isn’t very surprising after learning how the odds of her NOT doing something absolutely idiotic are, especially in regard to dangerous animals.  Let’s take a look:

1) Her father kisses rattlesnakes.

2) She works at Subway

3) Her brother is named LeeVon.

4) She does not know what the word “barrier” means

5) Look at her.  You can just tell.

Stupid is such a shame.  She has been released on bond.

  • EveryVillainIsLemons

    Sorry, but being stupid isn’t a good excuse. I’m just glad it wasn’t a wild dog enclosure.

  • Scretch

    Talk about boundary issues! I wonder if Courtney knows what boundary means.

  • Scretch

    Poor kid, though his head wound must have bled like a mofo, he was still lucky.

  • stupid! !

  • asswipe

  • missannthrope

    What a stupid fucking twunt. Seriously, someone this stupid should be sterilized before she can breed again. She is the kind of girl that an old friend of mine used to call, “Precious.” When I asked him why, he told me, “just go into any rural Wal*Mart and in 15 minutes, you will see 10 of her, all thinking they’re precious and special.” Carlsbad. The part of the state that would have been gifted to Texas long ago, if not for the tourist dollars.

  • What a stupid.. oh, wait. Its a montain lion. Ill be right back…

  • newstarshipsmell

    I wonder if she’s figured out what “barrier” means yet.

  • Sam

    “Here, kitty kitty!”

  • Sam

    Dafuq, woman? Even if you didn’t know what ‘barrier’ meant, couldn’t you at least have guessed that it wasn’t normal to have to navigate an obstacle course to see the animals up close??

  • come_and_see

    Obviously she didn’t know what a condom was either.

  • Sam

    Evidence of her stupidity
    6. She thinks pouting in ALL of her pictures is the best look ever.
    Either that or she has a bicycle rack where her teeth should be.

  • rpgmomma8404

    Wow, just how stupid can one person be. I love big cats just like everyone else but hell if I am going to get a wild hair up my ass and pet one.

  • Dad “charms” snakes and gets bit in the process, she works as a “sandwich artist” and like Wal-Mart. Yeah….this here is the future of America.

    And really? She didn’t know about “barrier” before the police talked to her? What a fucking tard! Take the kid and throw this twunt in prison. Maybe there she can learn something besides stupidity.

  • DERP

  • TasteLikeCardboard

    I’m going to go with both.

  • Courtney Hutchins Arrested After Child Injured By Bobcat At Zoo – http://t.co/DuuMLb1Ece

  • Sterilize her so she won’t get pregnant on a one night stand. What a dumbass,and needs yo have that kid removed from her.

  • Well she did say she had never heard the word barrier. So thats a given.

  • she is so stupid, too bad the bobcat didn’t eat her so the kid would have a chance.

  • Sara

    What a freaking idiot! I’ve been around people like her. They’re impulsive, short-sighted and live for instant gratification. They don’t stop even for a nanosecond to consider the ramifications of their actions. Oh, for a while it’s fun, but then something spectacularly horrible occurs and someone ends up severely injured or worse. It’s enough to make me want to hit them over the head repeatedly in the hopes it will improve their intellect–they can’t get any dumber. Then again, I’ve been proven wrong about that time and time again.

  • I have a three-year-old son, and our zoo trips are NEVER this eventful. O_O

  • Just promise me that if I ever do something stupid enough to end up in the Dreamin Demon, you won’t post a link to my Facebook.

  • Texas Ranger

    Don’t drag Texas into this stupid bitches story. We sure don’t want Old Mexico, so why the Hell would we want “New” Mexico?

  • Texas Ranger

    She probably thought “Barrier” was the word for the dudes who pick the grapes for her grape juice.

  • newstarshipsmell


  • Omg! What a dummy!! Geeeeez!

  • kimbev69

    look at her eyes…is it me or do they get smaller and squintier (new word) with each pic i see?

  • wastintime

    I say we try hitting her anyway. What’s the worse that could happen? She.could forget how to breath? Would that really be a bad thing?

  • kimbev69

    Analise Voltaire Your dad’s pretty good at charming snakes, if you don’t take points off for getting bit. I don’t think your son knows how to charm bobcats yet though.

  • Buffettgirl

    Loving the word “twunt”! 😉

  • Buffettgirl

    I heard someone refer to a barista as a barrier the other day… still wondering how that one works itself out!

  • Buffettgirl

    Is it wrong of me that “Good Pussy” came to mind? 😉

  • tkaz

    Seriously, how did they “coax” a bobcat out? Our bobcats hate people & stare through the bars with disdain. Maybe the 3 yr old sounded like prey…

  • Buffettgirl

    As a kid (11 yrs old) I got the chance to hold and bottle feed a baby lion, but I think that anything bigger would make me think twice!

  • Sadly, her stupidity wasn’t so severe to keep her from figuring out how to spread her legs and ride the baloney pony, or how to give birth at a young age. The real loser here is the kid. He’ll never have a chance to be raised by a proper parent.

  • wastintime

    Stand back! And give me a double expreso!

  • makeyourself1024

    I wouldn’t even let a 3 year old touch a goose….a bobcat?? “hey honey, isn’t that dangerous animal with retractable claws, sharp teeth, super fast reflexes, and a propensity for attacking out of fear sooooo cute?? lets go take a closer look!” this is not stupid. this is beyond stupid. there is no word for it.

  • makeyourself1024

    Hey! hey hey hey. Leave the Subway out of this!

  • Wolf_of_Mars

    Ladies & Gentlemen! For her next stunt, she’s going to pitch her kid over an 8′ tall chain-link barrier into a junk yard full of half-starved pit-bulls.
    Oooohhh… Nice Doggy!

  • techsupp0rt

    What… what is this? It’s like a wall, but I can see through it, and over the top of it. Who the hell makes a short wall out of wires in the middle of a freaking zoo, anyway? Probably a mistake, I’m sure. I’ll just clamber over so I can get a better look at the kitties =^.^=

  • driven .

    Sounds ( and looks ) like a Duck Dynasty episode

  • JohnQknowitall

    I was going to be extremely unkind, then I hit the link to her FB. It is just so sad… everything, all the limitations… just sad.

  • Suzy Sears

    Ok,I worked at my local zoo for years. I learned two important things. First never stick your finger in there ( cage ,fence,crate,encloser ) . Second never let anyone else do it either. I saw a grown ass man put his five year old son over the barrier with a candy bar and told him to go feed the chimps!!!!! Thank God in heaven the elder female got to him first! She was able to keep the male at bay while we got the boy out of there, he would have absolutely torn that child to pieces! There is stupid and then there’s outright murder. The fool in the story should really get her tubes tied, she’s way too stupid to have kids

  • JohnQknowitall

    She is a mother and she is in a relationship since April 5th with a guy who is a fan of Paris Hilton… a little respect please…

    The movie “Kalifornia” Juliette Lewis character came to mind… http://youtu.be/MsjoXPA_fVA

  • FrikkenFrak

    My thoughts exactly. What a dumb fuck.

  • Uh. . .you don’t pet a fucking BOBCAT. The hell was she thinking?

  • rpgmomma8404

    I don’t blame you, geese are fucking mean.

  • rpgmomma8404

    That’s horrible but I still laughed!

  • Jessica Stewart

    “Isn’t it just like a rully rully rully big kitteh? I mean maybe it was hungry or something? Y cnt I cliumb over teh fences?”………………..Yeah…..Sadly, this reminds me of that other stupid girl that put her child on the barrier and started texting people,and the child fell into the enclosure. Also “barrier” she’s never heard the word “barrier”? Jesus…

  • Jessica Stewart

    Or maybe he just smelled edible and looked small enough for a couple of bobcats to take down.

  • Jessica Stewart

    Nope, nope the theme song has to be “I wanna see your pussy” LOA

  • Ebonyheart

    Sweetheart, put a piece of dynamite in each ear and place your head on the barbeque. Oy vey.

  • HelleCat

    Why do I have a feeling this chick is an insane clown posse fan?

  • Centurion

    no matter how stupid, there is always some guy willing to climb on, and hump it

  • Maybe the name ‘cat’ clouded her judgement :S

  • Sara

    Hmm…a valid point. No, I don’t suppose that would be a bad thing. Whack away!

  • kimbev69

    i chuckled myself

  • Buffettgirl

    Ah hell, now I have to show my age… never heard of it! But if you think it works, I’m good with that!

  • Natural Selection, chomping at the bit.

  • What a sad commentary on our educational system.

  • LeaveMeBe

    Meaner than bobcats in my experience.

  • LeaveMeBe

    My daughter wiggled through a hedge and reached through a chainlink fence at the San Antonio zoo when she was 7 years old to pet a “baby” white tiger. She ended up with a rash on her stomach and arms, hand prints on her ankles and a bump/skid mark on her chin because her dad snatched her out so fast. My husband blamed me for her risky behavior because I reached over the bars of the rhino enclosure and petted a rhino on the horn earlier in the day. I’m such a fucking moron at times.

  • everjaded

    HA! I cannot believe someone referenced that song… love it. This particular pussy was clearly NOT the sweetest thing that she’d ever seen. 🙂

  • Mean Nurse

    This happened in the town I grew up in and still visit at least once a month. The waste of oxygen pictured above initially claimed that they never crossed the barrier and intended to sue the Living Desert (zoo/botanical gardens where it happened). Thankfully, her story continued to not add up and further investigation revealed she did indeed cross not one but several barriers to get as close as she did. There were also multiple witnesses who confirmed she ignored the safety warnings.

    Thank God the baby was not hurt worse than he was, could have ended in his death. *SMH*

  • Suzy Sears

    Honestly most guys I’ve met go for stupid the dumber the better lol

  • A-nony-mous

    I don’t believe for a second that she doesn’t know what barrier is or didn’t see anything. I think she wanted to be ‘kewl’ and hardcore and pet a wild predator and now she’s just trying to keep out of legal trouble.

  • Leasha

    Please tell me the child is NOT being returned to her? I fear what other important words and common sense things she “doesn’t know”.

  • Leasha

    Looks like my ex roommate’s girlfriend.. lights on, no one’s home.

  • Miss.Anne Thropee

    Ah wow!! I want some Skull Staples…!!
    Now…to Hot Topic (never been) or Staples (also never been)??

    In all seriousness though, Man, Two years ago I was saying it, and I am STILL saying it…If Cattle breeding is monitored, and controlled, why haven’t we instilled mandatory ‘Licenses’ to these serial stupid Moronic Mothers…
    But no…Nuthin…not even a poor little Bill sitting on the steps, singin bout becoming a Law. *aaaaawww*.

    However? More parents are now eradicating the ones they brought in, which, unfortunately does have some merit. Man, talk about selfish bitches with 3 kids at 21, Can’t kill em, can’t save the poor innocents genes.
