Hampton, Va. – A rottweiler was euthanized after police say it bit a juvenile and another person back in February.

On February 2nd at around 3 p.m., public safety was notified about a canine that had bitten someone in the 100 block of Willis Church Yard in Hampton.

Animal Control says a juvenile and another person was bitten.

Officials say this was not the dog’s first time biting someone.
