Pit bull attacks mail carrier

Posted: Updated:

A postal worker is recovering after she was attacked by a pit bull as she delivered mail on Tuesday.

Beaumont Animal Services and Beaumont EMS were called to at 1465 Irma in Beaumont's south end. When officers got to the house, the postal worker was being treated by medics for multiple punctures and lacerations to her hands, legs, torso and face.

The postal worker was later taken to Christus Hospital St. Elizabeth.

Investigators say it appears the dog broke free of a chain while the mail carrier was delivering mail to the house. 

The dog was apprehended by Animal Services and taken to the Animal Shelter for a 10 day Quarantine. The case is still being investigated to determine if the dog will be declared a dangerous dog.
