The parents of a child whose toes were bitten off by a family pet have become embroiled in an argument over which of their pets—a pit bull pup or a ferret—actually committed the act.
The mother, Mary Hansche told a local TV station, "The way the bite marks were on her foot, the ferret being out of its cage, I knew it wasn't the dog." Holding out her hand to show a missing finger, she added, “This is what the dog bite looks like.”
Her husband, Christopher Hansche, still blames the dog, claiming that the ferret had been in its cage all night. "She needs to just shut the hell up. I work for a livin'."
When asked whether the dog had also inflicted the cuts and bruises on her face, Mrs. Hansche said, “Naw, that’s just me and Chris’ way of workin' it out. He's been under a lot of stress.” She quickly added, “It's my own fault. It don’t mean he don’t love me!”
There was no word whether their mobile home was damaged in the fracas.
