Dog bites anchor Kyle Dyer in the face on live TV
Firefighter Tyler Sugaski, who put on a wetsuit and rescued the dog, was also being interviewed when the attack occurred. In the video, the dog looks calm while Dyer pets him, but then suddenly lunges for her face. The owner was holding him at the time.
Meghan Hughes, spokeswoman for the Denver Environmental Health department, said owner Michael Robinson of Lakewood was cited with failure to have his dog on a leash, allowing a dog to bite and failure to have a vaccinated dog. Max is in quarantine until a hearing can be scheduled.
