Owner of Dog Who Bit KUSA Anchor Speaks Out in KDVR Interview

The owner of the dog who bit KUSA anchor Kyle Dyer last week recently sat down for an exclusive interview with rival station KDVR and complained that the high-profile nature of the incident is keeping his dog detained at the Denver Animal Shelter longer than he should be.

Max, the 85-pound Argentine Mastiff who bit Dyer during KUSA’s morning show last Wednesday, is currently under a 10-day quarantine at the shelter.

KUSA Reports: Dog Who Bit Anchor Kyle Dyer ‘Most Likely’ Will Not Be Put Down

KUSA sent reporter Chris Vanderveen to the Denver Animal Shelter on Thursday to check up on Max, the 85-pound Argentine Mastiff that bit anchor Kyle Dyer. The dog is currently under quarantine following the on-air bite.

In a story that lead KUSA’s evening newscasts on Thursday, the shelter’s director told Vanderveen that Max will “most likely” not be put down.

“One of the things that Max has going for him is that it appears that this is his first bite,” the shelter’s director, Doug Kelley, said.

Recounting the incident in his story, Vanderveen emphasized the potentially stressful circumstances surrounding the bite (it was less than 24 hours after Max was rescued from icy waters and occurred under bright studio lights) as well as the fact that Dyer got “close, really close” to the dog.

The heartwarming story of a local dog rescued from an icy pond on Tuesday took a turn for the worse this morning as the dog reportedly attacked KUSA morning anchor Kyle Dyer during the station’s 7 a.m. newscast.

Max, an 85-pound Argentine Mastiff, fell through the ice on a pond near his home Tuesday evening and spent roughly 20 minutes stranded in the freezing water before firefighters made a dramatic rescue, which was caught on tape by KUSA’s news helicopter.

After teasing Max’s visit to the KUSA studio throughout the morning, the station had him on during its 7 a.m. show, which airs on KTVD.  While Max was meeting the KUSA morning team, he bit Dyer on the face (video inside). Read more
