Zareek Chandler, the 2-year-old victim of a vicious attack by a pit bull on Thursday, has been released from the pediatric department of WakeMed Hospital in Raleigh, hospital officials confirmed.

Zareek was transported to Wake Med from Nash UNC Health Care on Thursday after sustaining multiple bites to his head, ear and face.

Zareek was attacked by the dog that was chained inside the Rocky Mount home where he was staying with relatives.

As the mother opened the door to scream for help, the dog dragged the toddler by his head and ear onto the porch and eventually down the steps into the front yard.

The child was saved by the heroic efforts of a woman who was visiting in the neighborhood. The matter remains under investigation by Rocky Mount authorities.

A PIT BULL attacked a little boy inside of his own home in Rocky Mount on Thursday.  Officials responded to the call in the 700 block of Lincoln Drive around 11 a.m. The one-and-a-half year old child had to be taken to Nash-UNC Hospital. He was said to have non-life threatening injuries.

The boy's mother was there during the attack. Animal Control seized the male pit bull for quarantine.

According to officials  the pit bull belonged to a friend of the family and did not live at the Lincoln Drive home.

Two other dogs were removed from the home due to "improper care conditions," authorities said.

Social Services also responded to the attack.

No charges have been filed, as the incident is still under investigation.
