Video: Mississippi postal carrier pepper sprays dogs while dropping off package

OXFORD, MS (WMC) – Two Oxford dogs were pepper-sprayed by a United States Postal Service worker. The whole thing was caught on camera, and now the USPS is investigating.

The dogs’ owner, Holly, who doesn’t want her last name used, was horrified when she saw the video captured on her home surveillance camera showing the postal carrier spraying the dogs at least 12 times.

She looked at the video after she was affected by the spray when it transferred onto her after she touched her dogs.

“Very angry, very angry. These are sweet puppies,” Holly said. “I didn’t realize what had happened until I had rubbed by eyes and my eyes started burning. I went about my business, and I rubbed my eyes, and they started burning and burning.”

The postal carrier started spraying one of the dogs, Colonel, from the truck–the dog was barking at him.

The man sprayed the dog over and over. Then, he put two packages by the garage, walked up to the front of the truck, and sprayed the second dog, Liberty.

He then got into the truck, backed it up, got out, and picked up the two packages, still spraying the dogs as he took off with the packages. WMC Action News

    The rule used to be, if you see the dog, don’t get out of the truck. He should have never gotten out of the truck. Leave a slip, make the customer come to pick it up.

    @ Bill – the rule makes perfect sense and protects both parties.
