BEAVER FALLS, Pa. (KDKA) – For whatever reason, “man’s best friend” has a vendetta against most mail carriers.
That was the case during a frightening scene Tuesday afternoon in Beaver County, when a mailman was attacked by several dogs.
It happened on Third Avenue, where one doesn’t have to look very far to find people who own a dog; and often times, they own more than one.
A letter carrier on his usual route was making his rounds when he attacked by at least three Pit bulls who were running free. As he was walking up to a house to deliver the mail, the dogs apparently jumped out an open window in the 800 block of Third Avenue.
Two eye witnesses, who did not want to be identified, said it was a terrifying site.
“I seen a postman lying on the ground, and three or four dogs attacking him,” one witness said. “He was begging for someone to help him.There was nothing I could do, you know, I didn’t know whose dogs they were.”
