Rescued dog bites news anchor during broadcast

(By Scott Gustin, WGHP) - A Denver morning news anchor was bitten by a dog during a live broadcast on Wednesday.

Kyle Dyer, an anchor for the morning and noon broadcasts of Denver’s NBC affiliate, 9NEWS, was covering the story of a dog rescued from a frozen reservoir. She was interviewing the dog’s owner and rescuer when she bent down to kiss the dog’s nose. When she did, the dog turned his head and bit Dyer’s face.

Dyer was taken to a local hospital where she is now recovering. According to 9NEWS, the hospital says she has gone through reconstructive surgery for injuries she sustained from the bite.
