- The incident reportedly took place at the White House South Lawn on Monday.
- The employee — who reportedly works for the National Park Service — needed to stop working in order to get attention and help from the bite.
First lady Jill Biden’s press secretary, Michael LaRosa, told CNN that the Biden dog is “still adjusting to his new surroundings.”
- “Yes, Major nipped someone on a walk. Out of an abundance of caution, the individual was seen by WHMU and then returned to work without injury.”
Didn’t Major already bite someone?
At the beginning of March, Biden’s two German shepherds — Champ and Major — were recently taken from the White House to Delaware after Major specifically showed “aggressive behavior” at the White House, as I wrote for the Deseret News.
CNN reported at the time that there had been a “biting incident” between Major and a member of White House security.
- Officials saidat the time that Major “has been known to display agitated behavior on multiple occasions, including jumping, barking and ‘charging’ at staff.”
