Police have started an investigation after a mail carrier was recorded on video using pepper spray on a small dog that was enclosed in its front yard.The incident happened Friday in the 4900 block of Gordon Avenue in Fort Worth.
“They’re like my children,” Sue Hunt said of her two small dogs, Thalia and Snuggles.Surveillance video shows Thalia, a 22-pound Bichon Frise, wagging her tail as a mailman walked up to the house.
He sprayed the dog through the slats of the fence not once, but twice.”I was furious,” said Hunt’s son, Scott Young. “I couldn’t believe it. He just sprayed the dog through the fence. The dog was inside and wasn’t even able to get to him.”
