CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) – A judge has banned a particular animal from the Chattanooga Zoo.

Judge Sherry Paty banned Chattanooga Zoo Director Darde Long from taking her dog to work.

Three zoo employees testified Long's dog had bitten them.

Kayla Allen was the first to complain. She says the dog bit her last December so hard she required surgery. She says the attack has changed her life.

"He has ruined my life. I have been suffering for six months now. I had surgery last week. I have stitches in my leg. It caused a number 10 pain," Allen says.

Judge Paty ruled the dog is potentially dangerous, and said Long could no longer take the dog to the zoo.

Allen says a civil suit against long isn't out of the question.
