Neighbors Hear Toddler Uncontrollably Crying For Days, Terrified When They Open The Door And Look Inside

Leaving a toddler alone and unsupervised in a household is dangerous and when young children are abandoned outside the house, the risk to their safety exponentially increases. In an incredible occurrence on December 22, 2016, an abandoned toddler was discovered crying and surrounded by a protective pack of dogs. While her toddler was lost in nearby Brentwood Park in the rain, the boy’s mother, 26-year-old Cassandra Violet Bustamante was allegedly sleeping at her home in Victorville in San Bernadino County, California. A good Samaritan spotted the abandoned toddler and contacted the authorities after no one came to console the crying boy.

Authorities arrived on the scene to find the baby boy wearing only a soiled diaper. However, by the time a police sergeant found him, the baby boy was not alone. 7 dogs were circling the toddler in a protective pattern and ferociously intercepted the police sergeant when he approached the boy, seeing the stranger as a threat to their charge. The San Bernadino Sheriff’s Department reports that “The dogs seemed to be very protective of the toddler when the sergeant approached him to get him out of the rain and cold weather”. Due to the conditions, the sergeant had no choice but to attempt to snatch the toddler and get the boy out of the cold. Sadly, as the unnamed police sergeant took the child, one of the overprotective dogs “became very aggressive and lunged” at the sergeant, forcing him to shoot the mistaken animal. The dog is currently recovering according to the latest reports.

After taking the toddler, authorities briefly searched the surrounding neighborhood for the young boy’s home and found the boy’s mother and his two siblings inside a home with the front door wide open.

Ms. Bustamante had been sleeping while the entire incident unfolded. Children and Family Services have been contacted as a result of the negligence displayed by Ms. Bustamante who has been detained on pending charges of child cruelty.
