Rescued Dog Bites News Anchor Kyle Dyer in the Face

Kyle Dyer, Denver’s 9News anchor, was bitten in the face by a dog during a live broadcast, Wednesday morning. Dyer was conducting an interview about the rescue of Max, an 85-pound Argentine Dogo that fell into freezing cold Smith Reservoir in Lakewood, Colorado, on Tuesday afternoon, while chasing a coyote.

Warning: disturbing video!

Dyer was bitten as she “tried to kiss/snuggle with the dog,” according to the animal control report. She was taken to the hospital, where she underwent reconstructive surgery.

The dog will be quarantined for 10 days to ensure he does not have rabies. His owner, Michael Robinson, was cited for having the dog off leash and for lack of rabies inoculation.
