DENVER (AP) -- A Denver television news anchor who was bitten by a dog on live TV is planning to return to work next week.

Kyle Dyer of KUSA-TV was bitten in the face by an 85-pound Argentine mastiff last month while doing a segment with the dog's owner and a firefighter who had rescued the pet from an icy pond.

She received 90 stitches and the station says she plans to return to work on Monday.

Dyer called the incident an accident and says she's glad the dog is home after spending 10 days in mandatory quarantine.
