The attack happened on Aug. 6, according to a KRDO viewer who called in the tip. USPS said one of its carriers was delivering mail in the southwest part of town when it happened.
USPS says the carrier rang the doorbell of the home, and when the resident answered, a dog “pushed past and attacked.” The carrier hasn’t been identified.
According to the source who called in the tip, the dog mauled the carrier’s hand. The victim underwent surgery this week and is still in the hospital.
