Rescued dog bites NBC anchor in the face during feel-good segment gone wrong

By Dylan Stableford



It was supposed to be one of those feel-good segments on a local television newscast: A rescued dog. A grateful owner. The hero firefighter who pulled the pulled the dog from the ice. But that's not how it turned out.

The dog, an Argentine mastiff named Gladiator Maximus, attacked Kyle Dyer, anchorwoman at NBC's KUSA Denver affiliate, during a live, in-studio segment on Wednesday that was meant to celebrate the dog's rescue from an icy lake the day before.

Dyer was shown petting the mastiff during the segment, then kneeling on the floor to get closer, when the 85-pound pooch bit her in the face. Paramedics and animal control were called to the studio. Dyer was rushed to a Denver hospital where she had reconstructive surgery overnight. The 3-year-old dog was taken to a Denver animal shelter where it is being "quarantined."

Video of the attack, as you might imagine, has gone viral, but KUSA has been issuing take-down notices, trying to get the clip off the Internet. (The "Today" show won't even show it.)

Patti Dennis, KUSA vice president of news, said Dyer's surgery was successful, and that Dyer is expected back to work in a few weeks. "The surgeon was pleased with the outcome," Dennis said. "Kyle says she wants everyone to know she is OK and is concerned about the viewers who were watching the incident live on TV."

"Several people interacted with the dog [prior to the segment] and everything seemed fine," Dennis said. "Then at the last moment, the dog had behavior that nobody predicted or understood. Clearly we learned something."

1.) sure, the stupid woman was over-stroking the damn dog -- and then put her face right up next to it

2.) but breeds like this, which are clearly related to the pit bull =; , have absolutely no place in civilized society.

Yep, a classic case of over strokage! I should be so lucky. Hell, an under strokage would be nice at this point in time. :lol:

Seriously though, she should have known better than to put her face in his. He didnt like it one bit.

Great idea, rub the hell out of a strange dog's face and then put your face right next to it's mouth. :thumbright:

Clearly the dog wasn't interested in a relationship.

It's says the video is private but there is no place to donate tokens.
I'm confused.

Yeah, take down a video just because some people might find it offensive. Nevermind that allowing people to see it might actually EDUCATE some idiots about how NOT to approach an unfamiliar, stressed out dog.

Just another reason to weed out these breeds... and while we´re at it each and every dog in a shelter. World would be a better place without these worthless animals.

Yeah. Wipe out the breeds that bite people. What is it with you people and your crusades to wipe things out?

You got me wrong here. I am not saying wipe out breeds that bite ppl. I am saying wipe out dangerous breeds and, while you´re at it, empty the shelters. Big difference.

pits, mastiffs and other closely related breeds account for almost 60% of all reported dog attacks on humans.

not sure wiping em out is the answer, but I certainly think they should only be allowed in remote, rural areas - 50 miles or more away from any population centers.

i'm sick of the "it's not the dog, it's the owner" bs. these dogs seem to have a genetic pre-disposition to be unpredictable and vicious.

way to go animal control.. great show. Just sit there.

If that dog was a human it would've gotten tazered, ticketed and its rights taken away..

actually, city animal control is responsible for this, no? Residents would be

I smell law suit potential
