[Ed. – Parents of the year.]

Ten children believed to be violently abused and living in “horrible” conditions were removed from a home in Fairfield, California, and their parents were arrested, police announced Monday.

Garbage, rotten food, and animal and human feces were found strewn throughout the house, Lt. Greg Hurlbut said at a news conference Monday.

He added that the children described in interviews various incidents of “intentional abuse.” They suffered puncture wounds, burns and bruises consistent with getting shot with a pellet or BB gun, according to the department.

The children’s removal was sparked after a 12-year-old child was reported missing in the area on March 31, the Fairfield Police Department said in a news release. The child ultimately was found and returned home.

While at the home, police said they conducted a health and safety search and discovered nine other children — ranging in age from four months to 11 years old — “living in squalor and unsafe conditions.”
