The Colorado news anchor bitten by a rescued dog live on air posted on her Facebook page that she received 70 stitches on her face and is unable to speak because her mouth is stitched shut.

Kyle Dyer, a veteran morning news anchor for NBC News’ Denver affiliate KUSA, was reporting on an uplifting story of a dog rescued from a frozen reservoir when the dog bit her on the lip Feb. 8.

Hold that 11 PM new story! That the MSM is extincter than an old school mimeograph machine is already forgotten news but it still may draw life a bit longer than expected with this new wave(by MSM Gutenberg standards) news reporting format that has those news stations still on the air all abuzz with talks of a new concept in news reporting, "the future".

A bit of advice to the Newser: Next time, lay off the garlic and don't try to kiss stray dogs.

I hope the lady makes a full recovery. She didn’t use her head when dealing with the dog, to be sure. But it is unfortunate that things turned out the way they did.

Dan Rather and Peter Jennings were taking a walk in Hell, (I’m as mean as a snake tonight btw) Dan was just checking out time-shares, when Dan saw Satan’s dog `Lucifer’ licking his bright, red balls, really giving them a going over, snorting, blowing, etc. ...

[Parenthetical aside: It’s common knowledge that all MSM news anchors are queer for each other, when they aren’t making-out with their own dressing room mirrors.]

Dan observed this with considerable interest and finally turned to Peter and said, “You know Pete, since you died you haven’t been attentive to my needs. I’ve been as lonely as a farting razorback hog in a lukewarm hot tub.”

“Gee willikers, if I could do what that diabolical red bone houn’ dawg there is doing, why ... I wouldn’t need you, my stiff Canuck friend.”

And Jennings slowly turned his creaking, rigor mortised neck and replied in his crisp, fake English accent,
“You’d better pet him first.”

Getting down on her knees, approaching the dog from behind, putting her hand under the dog’s jaw, sticking her face in his face, were all things that the dog didn’t like. It was obvious in the video watching the dog’s facial expressions, body language, and reaction. He DID like the scratching/petting of his head, but all the rest in combination was more than the already uncomfortable dog could take.

I wish her a complete and speedy recovery, but keep her away from animals. She is clueless.

If this is the person that got bit, and this person is not the owner or in the inner family circle, she's should never stick her face that close up to a strange dog, if this is the case in this image.

I dunno. I believe dogs are a lot more innocent than people.

But the fact is, humans get into it all the time resulting in death, just because someone got into someone's face.

I smell a huge law suit is just around the corner, probably against the network or local station. Livelihood, pain and suffering, whole nine yards. And I bet she wins big, too. Could not happen to a nicer bunch. A presser with their mouth stitched shut suing the pants off the MSM; has such a good ring to it. How I wish 90% of the talking heads would get this stitch treatment for, oh say, the next nine months.

This house has been talking-head and commercial free for more than thirteen years. You all should try it ;)

She came down *from above* a strange dog and put her face right in its face.

All of that is ‘dominance behavior’ to a dog.

I would think that news bosses would have the sense to tell the anchors *not* to do such thing with/to unfamiliar, potentially nervous/freaked out animals.

The world is full of stupid people.

Agree. That is the silliest act. Not so bad if on top of the head, but close to or on the nose - stupid. I love dogs, have had them all my life, but kissing is stupid. And worse, if not the kisser’s dog. Bring on the flames.

Looks like she approached the animal as if it were a small child. Projecting human qualities and emotions over basic animal behavior, not a good idea.
The lady treated the animal as if it were a small child and was ‘thinking’ that the animal would be so relieved and happy about being rescued that a Kodak moment was forthcoming. It was a moment and it did make film, but animals are not human.
Unfortunately her face paid the price for her education.

Very probable. Far too many people think of dogs as just different shapped people.
I like dogs and have never met a dog that didn’t like me, from tiny toys through pits up to rotts and mastiffs. I don’t approach them like an old friend. I get down to their level and look beside them, not dead in the eyes – to a dog looking directly in their eyes is a challenge. I talk softly and extend a hand to sniff. After a couple encounters we’re friends.
I even made friends with a neighbor’s badass pit bull guard dog. The owner often let the dog loose on walks. He didn’t like it when his mean dog ran up to me, licked my hand and demanded an ear rub.

The dumbass put her face right down by a strange dog. In this case, stupidity really was painful. As usual, the animal will take the blame for human incompetence.

The triple post was entirely unintended. On my first try I received a message that it didn’t post, “proxy error”. I checked the thread and saw it didn’t post. I tried again with the same result. It worked on my third try. When I went back to the thread I saw the triple post.

I simply can't believe she did that with a strange dog, and I can't believe other people there let her. That was just dumb and not thinking. Like that model that exited a small airplane and walked right into the propeller. Both horrible accidents due to just not thinking about what they were doing.
