Chitty-Chitty Kid Cage

Here’s a novel child-rearing method:

WAKEMAN, Ohio – Sheriff’s deputies found 11 children locked in cages less than 3½ feet high inside a home, but a couple denied they had abused or neglected the children.

Nope, no abuse here, move right along folks. Heck, they even found the obligatory relative to say the kids liked it:

A woman who identified herself as Sharen Gravelle’s mother but would not give her name said the children were happy in their new home.
“This year they have played and had fun and laughed like no other children have, which they have never been able to do,” she said.

Being locked in a 40-inch cage is so liberating!

I wonder if they fed them treacle tarts?
UPDATE: Oh fine. Let the record show that Mr. Smartypants Wunderkraut posted on this story several hours before I did. I’m not bitter, as I’m not the one who got the number of kids wrong and I’m certainly not the one who forgot to mention the key HUGE BEADY MATTED BUNNIES angle of the story.

    I daresay that no other children have been locked in 3x3x3 cages. Even in solitary they give you more room.

    What do you mean I got the number of kids wrong? My CNN story says they rescued 8 kids but that the sick bastards had 11 total.
    But then again, I did get this from CNN…That was my first mistake!!!!
    And yes I give you props for being the first with the sick, matted bunny part of the story….not that it made THAT much of a difference! 🙂
