Hamilton CAS take child from 'squalid' home

Three year old covered in flea bites and feces

A three-year-old boy is in the custody of Hamilton CAS, after he was taken from a home in east end Hamilton, covered in fleas and feces.

It comes a week after a 10 year old boy was taken from a home in London, after he spent the better part of two years locked inside a room in a home.

The Childrens Aid Society was called in after complaints of foul smells coming from the home. The child was living with his mother and grandmother.  No word on charges as of yet.

The SPCA were also called in to deal with the situation after 19 animals were found inside. 2 birds and one dog were found deceased inside, while 14 cats and another dog had to be euthanized due to their health.

Three dogs survived, and have been or are in the process of being adopted out.

Hamilton CAS tell local media that there are mental health issues in play, and it's not clear whether they'll recommend charges to Hamilton Police.
