News anchor bitten by dog on air

Posted under Racine dog bite attorneys

A Denver news anchor is recovering after she was bitten by a dog while on the air.

The woman had the dog, its owner, and the firefighter who had saved the dog from an icy lake the day before on her show last week. The three year-old, 85 pound Argentine mastiff was calm throughout the segment until the anchor knelled down close to its face. The animal lunged and bit her on the face.

She had reconstructive surgery that night and is expected to return to work in a few weeks. The dog is currently quarantined by animal control as a precaution. The owner has been charged with violating leash laws and not having the animal properly vaccinated.
