YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – A postal worker went to the hospital on Friday after he was bitten several times by two dogs in Youngstown.
The mailman was delivering on North Garland Avenue when a dog pushed through a gate and bit the worker several times on the forearm, according to the Postal Service.
A neighbor tried to intervene, hitting the dog with a broom to get it to run away. That neighbor, Kasina Flowers, said the owner’s other dog had also followed the bigger dog.
“I ended up breaking a broom on them, so I tried as hard as I could. It was bad enough,” she said.
