Security video shows letter carrier pepper spraying dogs through fence

HOUSTON (KTRK) — A northwest Houston family wants a mail carrier disciplined for spraying their dogs with what appears to be pepper spray even though security video shows the dogs posed no threat.

The Cruz family’s three dogs were outside last Thursday but behind a closed gate when the United States Postal Service mail carrier approached to deliver the mail.

Jose Cruz says what happened next was shocking.

His home video shows the carrier spraying the three lap dogs until they retreated. A thick metal gate separates them from the mailbox and the mail carrier.

“They’re little dogs behind the fence. They don’t deserve that. Just put the mail in and go to the next house,” said Cruz.
