Child Taken To Ottawa Hospital After Dog Attack On Cornwall Island

April 29, 2010 — A young child has been airlifted to an Ottawa hospital after being attacked by at least one dog on Cornwall Island. Akwesasne police were called yesterday morning after a five-year-old boy suffered several deep wounds to his leg. An ambulance was first on the scene and took the child to Cornwall Community Hospital before he was airlifted to CHEO in Ottawa. Three dogs - a husky, a pitbull and a pitbull puppy - have been seized and are under quarantine for ten days. The animals are isolated in order to check for signs of rabies. Akwesasne Child and Family Services are aware of the incident and a police investigation continues.
