Dog bites Denver TV anchor in the face
FRESNO, California (KFSN) -- A TV anchor in Denver had to undergo reconstructive surgery following a dog bite she received while on the air.
Veteran anchor Kyle Dyer was petting the 85-pound Argentine Mastiff Wednesday during an interview with the owner and a fire fighter.
A day earlier, firefighters rescued the dog named Maximus -- when he fell through the ice of a frozen reservoir while chasing a coyote.
The TV station covered the rescue extensively and followed up the next day with a live interview on the TV set.
While Dyer petted Maximus under his chin -- he bared his teeth and bit her in the face.
The anchor is said to be recovering after surgery.
The owner says his dog has no history of aggression.
