KUSA Denver anchorwoman Kyle Dyer was attacked by a dog on air yesterday during a live segment about a rescued 3-year old Argentine mastiff. Dyer is known for being an animal lover, even hosting a weekly segment that features animals from the Denver zoo called "Kyle's Kritters."
The story featured the dog, a firefighter who had recently rescued the animal from a freezing lake, and its owner. During the segment, Dyer bent down to get closer to the dog, and it bit her in the face.
People on the news set said the dog had been fine interacting with everyone before the segment. The animal was quarantined after the attack, and its owner has been cited for a violation of leash laws and for not having the proper vaccinations for his dog. After a 10-day evaluation, officials will determine whether the dog can return to its owner.
Paramedics rushed Dyer from the studio to the hospital for treatment. The news anchor's injuries needed overnight reconstructive surgery. She is expected to return to anchoring within a few weeks.
