State investigators have shut down a far northwest-side home day care operation after they said an infant there was bitten by 27 rats.
Child Care Licensing ordered the homeowner to cease operations Monday after an investigation revealed she had been operating out of a home on Bentwood View without a license. Investigators found 8 children in the home and determined it had been in operation for 8 years.
The infant, who was rushed to a hospital Friday, had pronounced bite marks all over his body, including his eyes, cheeks, legs, stomach and back. The parents of the baby, who asked not to be identified, said the day care operator waited 4 hours to call them and did so only after the baby’s injuries did not fade away.

A Child Protective Services spokeswoman told the I-Team on Tuesday that the operator has expressed an interest in getting a license and reopening the operation. She would be required to complete several steps, including background checks and CPR training for all employees.
