MEMPHIS, Tenn. – A dog owner is outraged after his surveillance camera captured a U.S. Postal Service working spraying his dog with mace.

Duane Cleveland’s surveillance video shows a postal van pulling into his driveway on Wingfield Road Saturday morning.

His dog, Wes, approaches – first on the passenger’s side, then on the driver’s side.

“He’s kind of wondering what’s going on. Is this somebody here to see my dad, play with us, what’s going on?” said Cleveland.

About 15 seconds later, the postal worker sprays a substance out of the window, sending Wes running.

“I saw her spray and then I saw Wes, like, pawing at his face. I’m, like, he wasn’t even doing anything,” said Cleveland’s neighbor, Shannon Chestnut.

Chestnut said when she finally managed to reach Wes, the postal worker had already backed out of the driveway and continued on her route without even delivering any mail to Cleveland’s address.
