Pit Bull Chews Off Baby’s Toes
A couple in Jacksonville are being charged by Sheriff’s deputies with felony child abuse.
A 1-year-old pit bull chewed off all the toes on the child’s left foot while he was left on a couch Sunday night. The baby was 4-months old.
Robie Lynn Jenkins, mother of the child and her boyfriend, Tremayne Spillman, were keeping the dog for another person.
The owner of the dog had been arrested on Saturday night for illegal possession of a gun.
Jenkins stated she was on medication and did not hear the cries of the child, even though she was in same room. The injury was discovered when she changed the baby’s diaper the next morning.
According to the deputies, hospital officials stated the baby may lose its foot.
