According to Jeff Satur with Longmont Police, the 31-year-old mail carrier went to the doctor to be treated for his injuries.
TILFORD TOLD THE CAMERA THAT "ONE DOG LOOKED LIKE AN ALLIGATOR."
This is not the first dog attack in the area this week, according to Satur. A 49-year-old meter reader with the Longmont Utilities department was viciously attacked by a pit bull mix on Monday, February 22nd. The victim was hospitalized for serious injuries, and was just released from the hospital Wednesday.
Satur told 9NEWS that the mail carrier’s wife just read the story about the meter reader’s attack, and told her husband to be careful delivering mail.
The mail carrier, who is not being identified, is expected to recover.
Longmont Police intend to cite the dogs’ owner for three counts of having an aggressive animal.
