Kyle Dyer, the KUSA reporter who was bitten in the face by a dog on February 8, is returning to her on-air post tomorrow. We in Denver are delighted to have her back. She has been through a long ordeal, healing from both the dog bite and hip surgery — and is still smiling! Welcome back, Kyle!
Dog bite victim Kyle Dyer did an interview today with colleague Gary Shapiro from KUSA, 9News, Denver. She has concluded, she says, that “everything is going to be OK.” She also did an interview with the Denver Post, in which she revealed that on top of everything else, she is having hip replacement surgery in 10 days.
Our best wishes to Kyle on her continuing recovery. She’s one spunky lady and we look forward to seeing her back on the air.

KUSA in Denver reported today that anchor Kyle Dyer, who was bitten in the face by a dog several weeks ago, had a second surgery yesterday and her original stitches were removed. She has 20 new ones, all on the inside of her mouth, and can now talk and eat normally. The dog, Max, was released to his owner on Saturday and this week the station is running a 5-part series on understanding dog behavior.
For those still following the story, Denver television station KDVR aired an interview yesterday with Michael Robinson, owner of Max, the dog that bit KUSA anchor Kyle Dyer. It questions the 10-day quarantine of the dog at the Denver Animal Shelter even though Robinson has produced proof that the dog has a current rabies vaccination. Robinson fears the quarantine may adversely affect his dog.
Update: KUSA has just reported that Max will be released to go home home on Saturday.
