The two bulldogs that attacked a 4-year-old child and three others last week on the Onondaga Nation were not rabid, said Onondaga Fire Chief Ronald Shenandoah.

The tests came back negative this week, he said.

One of the bite victims, 4-year-old Tukwet Norte, remains in the hospital, though Shenandoah said the boy is expected to return home in “a couple of days.”

Family members declined to comment.

Norte, suffered a bite wound to the chest following the unprovoked attack by the family’s pets, according to information from the Onondaga Sheriff’s Department. Norte was playing with his brother, 10-year-old Hunwett Norte, on June 26 in their yard on Webster Road in the Onondaga Nation, when Tukwet Norte fell, according to a sheriff’s department report.

When Hunwet Norte went to help him, the first of the bulldogs bit him. The second dog then jumped in and bit the 4-year-old. The boys’ sister, Susan Hill, 18, and their father Isaac Norte, were both bitten trying to protect the two boys. Issac Norte was eventually able to kick away the dogs.

Sheriff’s deputies shot and killed one of the dogs and Onondaga Nation Patrol officers later shot and killed the other.

No charges have been filed.
