Benjamin Netanyahu’s Dog Bites Guests at Hannukah Party

Dec 10, 2015

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s dog bit two guests, including a female politician, during a Hannukah celebration Wednesday.

The adopted 10-year-old pooch named Kaiya nipped MP Sharren Haskel and Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely’s husband during a candle-lighting ceremony at the prime minister’s home, the BBC reported.

Neither visitor was seriously injured, according to BBC.

Netanyahu brought the dog home from a rescue shelter in July, he announced on Twitter.
