Colorado news anchor bitten by dog

Feb. 9, 2012 at 9:22 PM

DENVER, Feb. 9 (UPI) -- Colorado news anchor Kyle Dyer has undergone reconstructive surgery after being bitten in the face by an Argentine mastiff during a broadcast.

Dyer was reporting for 9NEWS Wednesday morning about how a firefighter rescued an 85-pound dog named Max from an icy pond when the animal suddenly snapped at her, KUSA-TV, Denver said.

"The dog bite accident that happened today at 9NEWS was unfortunate and certainly not expected based on what we knew about the dog and his owner. Our goal was to unite the owner with the rescuer for a nice segment. We are all thinking of Kyle and her recovery," Patti Dennis, KUSA-TV's vice president of news, said Wednesday. "We love Kyle and what she and her family do for this community. We also love animals and will continue to do all we can to use 9NEWS to improve animal welfare in Colorado."
