Dog going home after biting television anchor

An 85-pound Argentine mastiff dog that was impounded last week after viciously biting a Denver television news anchor is headed home and won't face any serious consequences.

Denver environmental health spokeswoman Meghan Hughes said Thursday the dog will go home this weekend after completing a 10-day mandatory quarantine.

Kyle Dyer of KUSA-TV received 70 stitches after she was bitten in the face while doing an on-air segment with the dog's owner and a firefighter who had rescued the dog from an icy pond in suburban Lakewood the day before.

Hughes says the dog's owner, Michael Robinson, is due in court Feb. 29 after he was cited with failure to have his dog on a leash and allowing his dog to bite.
