Dog attack in Papillion leaves mail carrier injured

May 7, 2024


PAPILLION, Neb. (WOWT) – What Crystal Alley saw out the window of her Papillion home was made even more horrifying by what she heard.

“He was screaming and trying to fight them off,” Crystal said. “He was in the middle of the street and the dogs were coming at him from each way and he was trying to fight them off with his mailbag. But when fighting one off, another jumped on him and got him to the ground.”

Three dogs had gotten out of the high-fenced backyard across the street. The Nebraska Humane Society described them as American bulldogs.

“One of our letter carriers was attacked by three large dogs and required medical treatment,” said Mark Inglett with the Postal Service. “He’s at home now, but still has injuries we’re dealing with.”

A woman who owns the three dogs pulled them off and the mail carrier stumbled into Crystal’s kitchen.
