Police arrived to the home of 30-year-old Hallie Amick on a Monday morning after receiving a call. They found the toddler sitting in the backyard in only a full diaper. A dog was with the child, apparently about to jump on him for the chicken.

This is not the first time they were called about Amick; apparently when the family moved in, neighbors called 911 when they saw the toddler in the middle of the street.
