MEMPHIS, Tenn (localmemphis.com) – One Mid-South neighborhood is calling out the U.S. Postal Service for what it calls “inappropriate behavior.” Home surveillance video shows a delivery driver spraying a dog with pepper spray from inside a vehicle.
It happened Saturday around 9:30 a.m. in the Berclair neighborhood on Wingfield Road off Macon Road.
Local 24’s Dave Detling spoke to the dog’s owner and a neighbor who witnessed the incident.
Duane Cleveland loves his dogs, especially his four-and-half-year-old mutt Wes.
“His name is short for Westover. That’s the street I found him on when he was a puppy,” said Cleveland. “I’ve had him going on five years now. He’s a great dog. Everybody who knows him, knows he’s a great dog.”
