KANSAS CITY, MO. — Well would you look who’s back on Dreamin’ Demon. Some of you may not remember Carrie Waldo, but two years ago she and her husband were charged with felony child endangerment after their infant had seven fingers chewed of by a ferret.
When we last reported on the couple, they told police they were both asleep when their pet ferret started chewing off all of their 4-month-old boy’s fingers. By the time their son’s cries woke them up, he only had three fingers left; two thumbs and a pinkie. According to the couple, the ferret had never been aggressive towards their son before.
It would later be proven that the couple were lying through their teeth and had not even been home at the time of the attack. Phone records and GPS location documents proved the couple were away from their home while their infant screamed bloody murder while feeding the ferret.
The couple’s landlord would also debunk the couple’s claims of the ferret not being aggressive after telling them 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.
Carrie’s husband, Ryan, was sentenced to two years probation after he pleaded guilty in March 2013 to a misdemeanor charge of second degree endangering the welfare of a child. Carrie pleaded not guilty and was to appear in court Monday morning but was a no-show.
The judge has issued a warrant for her arrest and ordered her current bond forfeited. When she is taken into custody, she’ll have to pay a cash-only bond of $15,000.Tags: Carrie Waldo, Child Neglect, Crime, ferret, Missouri, When Animals Attack
