ONONDAGA NATION, N.Y. (AP) — Two bulldogs that attacked a 4-year-old child and three other family members on an upstate New York Native American Indian reservation were not rabid.
Onondaga Fire Chief Ronald Shenandoah tells The Post-Standard of Syracuse (http://bit.ly/1or0IlV ) that tests on both dogs came back negative.
One of the bite victims, a 4-year-old boy, remains in the hospital. Shenandoah says he's expected to return home in a couple of days.
A report by the Onondaga Sheriff's Department says the boy suffered a bite wound to the chest following the unprovoked attack by the family's pets. He was playing with his 10-year-old brother last Thursday in their yard on the Onondaga Nation.
The boys' sister and father also were bitten before authorities shot and killed both animals.
