SAN DIEGO – A letter carrier who was attacked by a pit bull while on his route is hoping his story draws attention to what he says is a problem.
The U.S. Postal Service says 31 letter carriers have been attacked by dogs since 2013.
The attack on Buddy Siso happened in Golden Hill two weeks ago. He said a dog broke through a chain-link fence and got a hold of his throat and leg.
“I still have nightmares,” Siso said.
He said he used his mail bag to block a part of his neck while the dog attacked. Blood can still be seen on the bag strap.
