Yes, a child abuse charge in a strange case like this is front page news.

What do you want, an update on the front page every day saying "Oh, hey, it's day 340, we still have some unsolved deaths!"

So. He is a toddler. They don't put mammal in the police report. And we dont put mammal in our nursing notes.
Hey winner, my point was that defining him as a "child" was plenty enough. No one needed you to interject "toddler". Good job Moe Ron

No, it wasn't. He was talking shit about a child that is a TODDLER which is actually an older BABY!!

This is seriously one of the most depressing stories I've ever read. She woke up one day, I assume in a pile of syringes and vomit, and decided “I’m going to give this whole motherhood thing a try!”
So she takes the kid to the zoo, in what was probably the first outing the poor kid has ever gone on, and it results in a mauling and child abuse charge. So that went well.
These people read like they have no idea how the world works outside of being a drug induced haze on the couch. Read the guy’s quote about the animal looking like it was going to get them, or whatever. For them, it’s a strange, confusing world of animals and barriers and actual adult expectations.
Drugs are bad.

LOL, it is because of the local news and weather of the area you are located. I have the same. I had to look to see why some things made it national news when it wasnt.

huff, puff, huff,(swallow) puff.... Sorry, me and my firm were chasing the kid's amublance as fast was we could.(Gasp) Was there any asbestos involved? Did the animal have a proper warning label growing from the weeve of his hair?

We just might have a tort case here. We take 30% of course, but that'll all be explained in the free consultation.

Why should your kid be raked across the face for free when every other kid in America should now pay for it? Now imagine yourself in a new double-wide trailer for you and all your meth-mouthed friends to celebrate over?

I hope they do something with this dangerous animal, I for one will not be taking my kids to this zoo unless I hear that this animal is gone or put down.

Could you please rationalize your comment? There are many dangerous animals at the zoo for that is why there are barriers. Why does the animal need to die due to the mother's stupidity and crossing the barrier for the animal was doing what it does naturally.

And don't stop there. Remove all knives from you kitchen too. Demand seatbelts on all toilets in every new home built.

By the way, did your parents raise you in a home that had asbestos in it? Here's my card...I get 30% of whatever we nail 'em for...

Definitely, to continue letting us know what a poor job our police force is "NOT" doing!!!!! Maybe a constant reminder will keep all these cases open and not forgotten..... and "UNSOLVED"!!!

A strange case like this would be front page news in a town/with a newspaper 10 times Carlsbad's size.

Anyhow, I hope "concerned mother" is a troll. If not, I think Topix has set a new record for stupid.
