Barbara Streisand's Dog Bites Flight Attendant


It seems that even rich and famous people can have dog issues as well. In addition, legendary actress and singer, Barbara Streisand’s beloved pooch bit a flight attendant May 1, on board a private jet. Likewise, Streisand was on Ron Perelman’s private jet en-route to lobby for the Woman’s Heart Alliance when the incident occurred.

The 12-year-old Coton de Tulear named; Samantha bit the female flight attendant after she tried to pet the dog without showing her hand first. As a result, the dog bit the attendant’s hand, which required stitches. A representative for Streisand stated that the bite was more of a “nip” and insinuated that the flight attendant should’ve put her hand out first since she was a stranger. In addition, Streisand felt terrible and stated that Samantha has never acted that way toward another stranger before this incident.
