San Antonio Care Home Investigated, Baby Bitten 27 Times

An unlicensed San Antonio child care provider faces state review after a 4-month-old boy was bitten more than two dozen times.

A Child Protective Services spokeswoman says the investigation began Monday, including an unannounced inspection at the residence.

The victim's parents rushed their baby to a hospital Friday after picking up their son and seeing the wounds. The boy apparently was bitten by another child. Medical officials counted 27 small bite marks.

CPS spokeswoman Mary Walker said Tuesday that authorities believe the unlicensed day care operated for eight years. Eight children were found at the residence Monday. The operator has agreed not to care for children amid the investigation and pending seeking a permit.

No charges were immediately filed.
