Denver News Anchor Bitten in Face by Dog Says Childbirth More Painful

Comments Off

A week or two ago I wrote about the shocking incident of a rescue dog that bit the face of a news anchor live on television. The dog, an Argentine Mastiff, was featured on the Denver TV show "Kyle's Kritters" for having survived a rescue from an icy pond by firefighters. When bending down to kiss the pooch on the nose, Kyle, the news anchor, was bitten on the face. She subsequently underwent emergency surgery and had her lip stitched shut so she could heal.

However, Kyle is taking the incident in stride and recently scoffed at other media sources for taking the incident too seriously. She says that childbirth was more painful and that she is glad that the dog is now back with his owners. She was stunned how the video of the attack traveled so quickly–including to a small town in Lithuania where her niece lives. Dyer has undergone two surgeries and is set to have the last of her 70 stitches removed this week.

She says that although the dog attack was painful, she doesn't hold any ill will toward him or his owners, although others have called for the dog to be put to sleep for fear that it will bite again. Kyle says that she knows that she intimidated the dog by accident, especially after it had just been through a traumatizing event. She also says that the incident was "oddly positive" for her and that she is looking forward to getting back to work.
