FL Postal Worker Mauled by Dogs

A postal worker in Miami Gardens is recovering from being severely bitten by two dogs while on her delivery route. Mail carrier, E.P., opened a gate to deliver mail to a home, when two American bulldogs allegedly jumped the fence and attacked her. A neighbor heard her screaming as the dogs bit her on her legs, arms, and face. According to the Huffington Post, one of the bystanders said that the dogs were trying to eat her alive and she was screaming "Help me, I'm dying." Witnesses said that she continued to be attacked until a brave man came and beat off the dogs with a large stick.

She was taken to Memorial Regional Hospital with deep puncture wounds, but in stable condition. The owner was sympathetic toward the mail carrier, but claimed that she had never been bitten by the dogs. Fortunately, the dogs were properly vaccinated and had the appropriate paperwork. As a consequence, the owner was fined for the attack and her dogs are scheduled to be euthanized.

This type of incident is extremely prevalent in America, happening to about 1,000 U.S. citizens per day according to one study. These dog bites can range from mild to severe, sometimes even ending with a person's death. In the past several years, there have been about 30 fatal dog attacks annually. Dog bites reportedly cost $1billion in damages every year, the average case costing $21,875.
