Netanyahu dog quarantined after biting MP, minister

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sits at the weekly cabinet meeting at his Jerusalem office on December 6, 2015Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s dog was behind bars Saturday after biting a lawmaker and a cabinet minister’s husband during an event to mark the Hanukkah Jewish holiday. “Last night we lit the fifth Hanukkah candle with all the family present before we were sadly obliged to send Kaiya to quarantine as required by law,” Netanyahu wrote Friday in a Facebook post reported by media Saturday. The premier said the experience brought home to him “flaws incompatible with logic and compassion” in Israel’s public health regulations, which mandate that dogs who bite, even if they have received all the necessary inoculations, be confined for 10 days.
