BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC) - A reporter for an NBC affiliate in Louisiana was rushed to the emergency room after she was bitten by a pitbull.

Reporter Emily Turner, from WVLA in Baton Rouge, was working on a story featuring pitbulls on Friday after several area residents were attacked by the feisty canines.

Turner was interviewing a family who owned a pitbull, to show how safe the animals can be, when she got a little bit more than she bargained for.

During the interview the family's pitbull, named Polo, lunged at Turner and bit her on the wrist.

Doctors treated Turner and she is recovering at home.

Animal control officials will quarantine Polo for 10 days to make sure he does not have rabies.

Thank God she didn’t put her head in it’s mouth...

I’m kinda surprised she didn’t, but what do I know.

Hope she didn’t get hurt too bad. I wouldn’t wish that on her.

Wow this is certainly breaking news. A reporter was bitten on the hand/wrist, then treated and released.

*whistles*

OK, but she should have more journalistic integrity by swimming with a killer whale dressed as a baby seal.

Old saying in the news biz: Dog biting man (or woman) is not a news story. Man biting dog is.

I understand the point that you’re trying to make, but any decent dog would bite a member of the MSM.

Pit bulls were bred to kill other dangerous dogs. It’s no surprise they attack so many people each year.

I use my PayPal accounts so that the poor animals receive their succor almost immediately that an attack on them comes across my screens.

An attack on THEM? How ‘bout THEIR attacks on people? Stating FACTS is hardly an “attack”.

I can only hope your money is used to put these killing machines down.

A fool and his money are soon parted.
