The owner of the Argentine mastiff that attacked a Denver news anchor on the air has been cited by animal control. He was issued citations for violating a leash law and for not having the dog properly vaccinated.
Last week the anchor had the dog, its owner, and a firefighter who had rescued the dog the day before from an icy lake on her show. When she knelled down at the end of the segment to get closer to the dog, the three year-old, 85 pound animal lunged and bit her on the face.
She was taken to the hospital where she underwent reconstructive surgery. She is expected to return to work in a few weeks.
