Two bulldogs that attacked a 4-year-old child and three other family members on a Central New York Native American Indian reservation were not rabid.
Onondaga Fire Chief Ronald Shenandoah says that tests on both dogs came back negative, according to media reports.
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 County 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.
