Woman Who Treated Child Terribly Learns Her Fate

An Alabama mother whose child was living in a mobile home filled with maggots and feces has reportedly avoided jail time.

On Wednesday, 33-year-old Wendy Lee Davis pleaded guilty to child endangerment and her jail sentence of one year was instead suspended for two years of probation. 

The living conditions of Davis and her child were discovered after two of her dogs attacked a neighbor. Police say they found drug paraphernalia laying around, food covered in maggots and flies, and feces from seven 6-week-old puppies on the floor of the mobile home.

The two older dogs that were responsible for an attack that hospitalized a neighbor were reportedly seized and euthanized. The puppies have been turned over to the Humane Society.

In addition to the charge of endangering the welfare of a child, animal cruelty charges were also dismissed. 

The mobile home has since been cleaned up so that the child could be brought back there.
