Golden Retriever ran over (repeatedly) by Mail Carrier

Another sad story in the news.  In Kenton County Kentucky, a 3 year old Golden Retriever Nala was reportedly run over several times by a Postal Service employee.

According to Nelson Hamm, his daughter’s dog Nala followed the mail carrier to his car and had her head near the wheels when the vehicle reversed, hitting Nala and getting stuck.  The driver gunned the engine several times, rocking the vehicle back and forth before driving over the dog and leaving the scene.

Nala made it to the door, but it was too late.  She didn’t survive.

The postal service is investigating the dog’s death, but the owners say the incident was no accident.  At the time of this story, the mail carrier remains on the job.

Since the tragedy, Postal Service supervisor Terry Estrada attended the residence to apologize on behalf of the postal service.  Because they are a unionized organization,  there are procedures they have to follow for disciplinary action.

Reading the comments on the news story, several people are blaming the owners for letting the dog run loose.  According to neighbor Jack Stewart, 9,  the golden retriever came up the street every day to romp around.

Regardless, if this story is true, that mail carrier is definitely in the wrong profession….
