An investigation is underway after police say a trio of ferrets chewed off the nose, top lip and part of the cheek of a one-month-old baby's face in Delaware County.
"It's not our fault. We didn't do it, the animals did it," says the victim's father Burnie Fraim.
He adds, "We left the child unattended, which we take full responsibility."
Fraim, 42, admits to Eyewitness News that he and his fiancee left their one-month-old daughter unattended, but shouldn't have criminal charges for the damage his pets caused.
"This little mistake happened. I wish it never did happen, but it happened."
That "little mistake" put his infant child in the hospital.
Black lives matter" has become the slogan of anti-police protests across the nation, but the target of the protests is so misplaced that the motives of the so-called civil rights leaders behind the movement must be questioned.

"They were fighting over who's the star, who's better," owner Ali Abdul told the New York Daily News. "They were drunk. They spit at each other then one guy pulled out a gun and shot the other guy five times."
Dish accused Fox of extortion. Fox accused Dish of censorship. And now that the radioactive dust is clearing, it's apparent that Roger Ailes and Fox News have served the second largest satellite programming provider with a steaming dish of humble pie.
Mediaite reports that Dish has been broken, or at the very least badly cracked, in its highly publicized battle with the undisputed ratings king of cable news.
The Wall Street Journal says that the new multi-year distribution deal not only puts Fox News back on the satellite TV service with its 14 million subscribers, but it also puts much more money in Fox pockets.
The rate per-subscriber that Dish reportedly agreed to pay to Fox will increase by a whopping 50 percent, up to $1.50. Plus, Fox Business Network will appear next to Fox News in the channel lineup, enabling Fox Business to be more readily seen in a greater number of households.
