    Dreadful. I'm guessing the injured child is a twin, as there were two, 2-year-olds in the home?

    The link has the whole mugshot. What a sad, strange case. Sounds like there are some hoarding issues, among other things...

    This is awful...where in the world were these children sleeping? It's a wonder they all weren't bitten by rats or tarantulas! Someone, somewhere had to have seen this home at some point!

    P.S. This is SOUTH Carolina, not NORTH.

    Lt. Scott Franklin says Animal Control officers seized dozens of dead animals, including 48 rats and 10 python snakes.

    Eighty percent of the animals were dead, WSPA reported.

    August 2015:

    Deputies arrested Batton on Saturday. It took time to arrest him because they needed a parent to make decisions on behalf of the 2-year-old in the hospital, Stiles said...

    Joel Turner, a Law Enforcement Officer with Victim Advocate said the child has a long road to recovery.

    "He has bleeding of the brain," Turner said.

    The judge also said Morgan cannot own animals until the case is over.

    A father of three, including a toddler found unresponsive in a Gray Court home with more than 70 dead animals, is out on bond after deputies charged him with child neglect and ill-treatment to animals.

    Matthew William Batton, 25, of 1922 Martins Lake Road, Gray Court was charged with three counts of unlawful neglect of children and one count of ill-treatment to animals.

    The animals included cats, dogs, rodents, and reptiles, some of which were poisonous. 80% of the animals were dead. The dead bodies consisted of 3 dogs, 6 dead tarantulas, 4 bearded dragons (2 dead), 4 snakes, 10 dead pythons, two turtles, 11 dead gerbils & 48 dead rats.

    The animals were reportedly found in plastic bins and other cages. Two dogs were chained behind the home and were severely malnourished.

    On his fb, dad says it's all lies and there was no faeces and no dead and dying animals. He put up a few pictures of a few of the animals to show they were healthy. The place does look pretty clean in the pics but I'm guessing they were taken when they first moved in. According to her Facebook, they bought a house in Gray Court in June 2014. He was complaining that the allegations are all over the Web and he is getting insulted on snake forums.

    He says he doesn't know what happened to the toddler because he was at work. He says only Savannah knows what happened. Doesn't stick up for her.

    I can't find any updates on the child's condition anywhere.
