(Scroll down for video) A baby was rushed to a hospital after pet ferrets escaped from their enclosure and ate her nose and lips, police in Pennsylvania said.

Darby Police said that the three pet ferrets mutilated the baby girl, after she was left alone on the first floor of her house in a car seat.

The animals chewed off her nose, her cheek and her lips.

The one-month-old baby, Skyy Isabelle Fraime, was attacked on Thursday evening, while the girl’s mother, Jessica Benales, went to the second floor of the home and her father, Burnie Fraime, was sleeping in a bedroom.

The ferrets ran away when the mother came downstairs after hearing the cries of the baby. The baby was rushed to a nearby hospital, where she was said to be in stable condition.

She underwent reconstructive surgery at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

Police said that four other young children have been placed with relatives amid concerns about the ability of the parents to care for them.
