A U.S. Postal Service employee from northeast Missouri is recovering from a weekend dog attack.

The incident happened just before 2:30 p.m. Saturday in Kirksville.

Kirksville police say Corey Drury, 43, of Kirksville, was delivering mail to a home in the 1400 block of South Riggen Street when he was attacked by two dogs that are pit bull mixes.

Deputy Chief Justin Jones told KTVO that the canines were secured inside the house, but when they saw Drury, they were able to escape into the front yard by forcing open a glass storm door.

Jones said the dogs bit Drury on the leg and shoulder/upper arm area, causing serious lacerations.

He was going to seek his own medical treatment.
