I have often written that reading my blog articles may save your life and limb. Sadly, only less than 5 million unique visitors have come to my website since I started six years ago. Equally sad for Kyle Dyer, an anchor for the morning and noon broadcasts of Denver's NBC affiliate, 9NEWS, is that she was not one of those visitors.
Had she read my warning not to put your face close to any dog, she would have a prettier face today.
Here's the story:
ABC News Blogs, Rescued Dog Bites News Anchor on Live TV
A veteran Denver morning news anchor got more bite than she bargained for in her coverage of an uplifting story of a dog rescued from a frozen reservoir after the dog bit her on the lip, live on air.
Kyle Dyer, anchor for the morning and noon broadcasts of Denver's NBC affiliate, 9NEWS, was interviewing the dog's owner and rescuer during the station's 7 a.m. newscast this morning when she bent down to kiss the dog's nose. Instead of giving Dyer a sloppy kiss in return, the dog, an 85-pound Argentine Mastiff named Max, turned his head and bit into Dyer's face, as his owner and rescuer watched in disbelief.
Dyer, who joined the station in 1996, had to be taken to a local hospital where she is now recovering, according to an article posted on the station's website earlier today.
