A dog rescued from an icy pond in the US may be put down after it bit a news anchor during a live television interview. Kyle Dyer was rushed to hospital after being bitten by Max, an Argentine Mastiff, on a Colorado’s 9NEWS morning program on Wednesday morning. Max was on the show after being pulled from a freezing reservoir by a firefighter on Tuesday after it fell through the ice while chasing a coyote. Dyer suffering bite wounds to her face and is in a “fair condition” at Denver Health Medical Centre. “I just adore dogs, but I’m especially happy to meet you after your story yesterday,” Dyer said to the mastiff as she patted him during the interview. “You’re gorgeous.” As the interview ended Dyer leaned in towards Max in a show of affection but the dog bared its teeth and snapped at the news anchor before owner Michael Robinson was able to restrain it. Max’s owner will be cited for leash law violations, not having control of the dog and not vaccinating it for rabies. The animal is not showing signs of rabies but may be put down anyway.
This is the side of those obnoxious ASPCA commercials they don’t show you. You try to pet the dog and it decides to bite your face off. Shoulda left it in the frozen water cause now it’s right to the gas chamber right after the show. Love the reactions from everyone in the studio though. Trying to stay professional while this chicks lip hangs off her face like she had a stroke. Since the firefighters don’t budge from their seats, let’s kick it over to Gary for weather!
“OK…alright…OK.” Nice save Gary! Next time try not to react like you just walked in on your parents having sex.
