A day care is supposed to keep children safe while their parents are away. They’re definitely not supposed to do… whatever this mess classifies as. Tracy Blinoy didn’t think too much of it until she got a disturbing phone call.
In Busy Hands, a daycare center in Montana where she left her daughter Eliana for the day, called to inform her that her child had been bitten by another kid.
After all, kids do things like that sometimes, and it can’t always be helped. What Blinoy and her husband didn’t expect was to arrive and find Eliana covered in around 10 of these bite marks, all over her body and face.
They decided that they wanted to see surveillance footage, and what they saw was even more shocking. A two-year-old child was biting down on Eliana for a full minute and 29 seconds before any staff showed up to help.
The police and child protective services are investigating the daycare. An owner of Busy Hands spoke up and said that the fight was broken up as soon as screams were heard.
The toddler responsible was new to the center and had been kicked out a week before from another daycare center for biting, too.
Eliana’s injuries required she take antibiotics, but her parents have not decided whether they will press charges against the daycare center.
Meanwhile, the Internet seems to have decided for them. There is already a petition on Change.org calling for a shut down of the center, with many angry commenters on the story agreeing.
