Unfortunately, this happened in San Antonio. Lord love a duck.

There have always been jokes about mailmen and dogs. Dogs are portrayed as hating mailmen. It’s easy to understand. A stranger is coming to the house. Full alert! 

A San Antonio mailmen, however, decided to be proactive. He went to one house, where the dog was behind a fence, in the backyard. Then he went out of his way to pepper spray the poor dog who wasn’t posing a threat to him. Evidently, he didn’t realize that he was being captured on home video.

The owner is justifiably angry. Can you imagine? I would be foaming at the mouth.

Here’s a thoroughly idiotic quote from the U.S. Postal Service featured in Fares Sabawi’s article in mysanantonio.com:  (Inconvenience? Really? Rolling my eyes a whole bunch.)

In a statement, a U.S. Postal Service official said they are working to “gather additional details about this incident.”
“Based upon our findings, appropriate corrective action will be taken,” the official said in the statement.
Mail carriers are equipped with a plant-based repellent, the official confirmed, but they “are always instructed to only use the deterrent with great discretion.”
“We apologize for any inconvenience this incident may have caused our customer,” the official said.
