A malnourished and sick 2-year-old boy was found being nursed by a neighbor’s pregnant dog in Chile.
Police say the boy was found being nursed by a dog and suffering from a skin infection and head lice while his parents were “dead drunk.”
The boy was rushed to a hospital where he was held until his mother arrived, still inebriated.
Police say the parents will not be charged because the boy wasn’t being physically abused.
The boy was released from the hospital and placed in the care of child welfare authorities.
A custody hearing will be held later this month.
