Ratbitten baby's parents jailed
The parents of a 6-month-old Medford, Oregon boy who police say was bitten as many as 200 times by a rat they took home have been jailed.
Robert Horsfall, 21, and Maegan McCleary, 19, said they found the rat at a creek and put it in a cage in their bedroom, the Oregonian, a Portland, Oregon newspaper, reported. The animal got out during the night and repeatedly attacked the child, police said.
The couple has been jailed on criminal mistreatment charges.
A second child at the home has been placed in foster care, police told the newspaper.
