As for human-dog interactions, every toddler is taught not to approach a dog it doesn't know. That's a lesson Dyer should have heeded. For even though she was doing a piece on the dog, she didn't need to, as reported early, get down in the dog's face. Getting down to eye level with a dog and moving in close is a very aggressive move. Make no mistake, she brought the fight to the dog and caused the problem. That doesn't mean it's okay for the dog to bite, as they never should bite humans, but you can't persecute the dog for a human's stupid mistake either.
