Netanyahu’s dog quarantine­d after biting Hanukkah guests


Israel’s first canine is in the doghouse after biting two guests at the prime minister’s Hanukkah candle-lighting ceremony. Benjamin Netanyahu posted a family portrait — including his wife, two sons and the dog Kaiya — on Facebook Friday morning. “Last n-ight our whole family lit the fifth Hanuk kah candle before we were sadly forced to send Kaiya to quarantine, as required by l aw,” he wrote. Kaiya sunk her teeth into parliament­arian Sharren Haskel and Or A-lon, the husband of deputy foreign min ister Tzipi Hotovely. Neither was seriously hurt. Israeli cities may quarantine biting dogs for 10 days. He-skel laughed off the inci dent, tweeting, “As someone who was once a snake wrangler, a small bite from a dog doesn’t excite me.”
