Video of a dog attacking an anchorwoman on live television has gained national attention and sparked a debate over her station’s move to take the video off the Internet, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Kyle Dyer of Denver NBC affiliate 9News was bitten in the face by a dog Wednesday while she was anchoring the morning news show, the story says. The dog, which had been rescued from a frozen lake just days before, attacked her when she leaned toward the dog, according to the piece.
Her station declined to air tape of the incident and has sent takedown notices to websites where the footage has been posted. But that decision drew criticism, with Denver’s alternative newspaper pointing out that the station has aired violent footage as part of its news programming.
The station said Dyer would make a full recovery and was doing well, the story adds.
Here’s a video report on the incident from NBC’s “Today” show, which does not show the attack itself:
