The moment a dog viciously attacked a mailman was filmed by a man passing by in his car last Friday.
In the horrific video you can see how the postal worker screams in agony as the dog, understood to be a pitbul, grabs hold of his leg and passersby run to help and try to beat the dog off with a broom and even by throwing a wheelie bin at it.
The incident occurred on a snowy street in Detroit. The Michigan postal worker was apparently attacked for no obvious reason while making his rounds.
In the end, the dog let go of the postal worker and then charged at one of the neighbors who was therefore forced to run back indoors.
The dog has been handed to ‘animal control.’
