A Minneapolis postal carrier is in the hospital after being attacked by two pit bulls on the city’s north side. It happened as the carrier was passing a home at 33rd and Colfax Tuesday afternoon.Pam Donato is President of Branch 9 of the National Association of Letter Carriers. She says the postal carrier was passing by the home when the dogs ran through an open door and attacked him. Donato says neighbors beat the dogs off until police arrived and shot and killed the animals.
The postal carrier underwent surgery for more than 50 wounds at North Memorial Medical Center and is expected to recover.
Donato pledges to improve communication between the union and the city to identify dangerous dogs in the city.
