That little detail alone does makes this whole situation very much suspect. If the mother found her child down and injured, WHY did she leave her right there? Any normal mother's instinct would be to get her child off the floor at the minimum. The very BARE minimum! Another commenter here inquired if it was known if the child was injured before the dogs got to her. I wouldn't be surprised if it came out that the child was a victim of abuse and the mother tried to cover her tracks. I'm not saying that is what happened… we don't have the information to say one way or another. But as repugnant a scenario that may be, people have done worse. I've read elsewhere that the father was in jail when this happened. I'm curious to know now why he was in jail, and for how long before this went down.
