A severely malnourished two-year-old boy was discovered being breastfed by a neighbor’s pregnant dog in Arica, Chile, The Indepedent reports.  The boy was found by a neighbor, who noticed him  nursing on her dog Reina in a mechanic’s workshop. He had been abandoned by his family and had apparently sought nourishment from the only place he could find. He was immediately taken to a hospital and put into protective welfare custody. He also had lice and was suffering from a skin infection. When his mother showed up at the hospital, she was drunk but was not charged with a crime because officials said she had not physically harmed the boy.
