Dog Who Bit KUSA Anchor Kyle Dyer Will Be Released This Weekend

Max, the Argentine mastiff that was impounded last week after biting KUSA anchor Kyle Dyer, will go home this weekend after 10 days in quarantine.

The dog and his owner, Michael Robinson, were on the set of the KUSA morning show just 24 hours after Max was rescued from an icy pond when the incident occurred. Dyer required four hours of reconstructive surgery and more than 70 stitches in her lip last week. She is scheduled to return to the doctor this week for an evaluation.

Max will not face any serious consequences, according to the Associated Press. Denver environmental health spokeswoman Meghan Hughes said Robinson is due in court on February 29 after he was cited with failure to have his dog on a leash and allowing his dog to bite.
