German Shepherd, Pit Bull Attack San Jose Mail Carrier

SAN JOSE (BCN) — A letter carrier was attacked by two dogs in San Jose Wednesday morning, a postal service spokesman said.

The attack happened around 10:45 a.m. at a home in the 5000 block of Camden Avenue, spokesman Gus Ruiz said.

Both police and firefighters responded, as well as animal control officers, who eventually took a pit bull and German Shepard into custody, Ruiz said.

The letter carrier was Yuan Hu, a 10-year veteran of the U.S. Postal Service.

Ruiz said the dogs broke through a gate in the front yard and attacked Hu as he was dropping off mail. Hu ran in between cars in an attempt to escape the dogs, but they chased him down the street and attacked him, Ruiz said.

He suffered bite wounds on his forearms and was transported to O’Connor Hospital, Ruiz said. He has since been treated and released, but remains “traumatized,” Ruiz said.

    Wow, dog breeds that were meant for violence and fighting attacked someone? What a shock! My lab has never attacked a person, not even another dog.

    But I assume that’s all a fancy coincidence according to the defenders of the pits/ German shepards…

      I am with you, they should be banned from city limits. Although my lab will lick you to death.

      Oh jeez, so that one lab that killed that 2 month old baby means all labs are horrible, right?

      Want to get rid of aggressive dogs? Get rid of idiot owners, enact spay/neuter laws, and breed dogs only if one has a license to properly do so. Humans did this to these dogs.

    Ban animals. They belong in the jungle. The owner must face jail time.

  • Don

    I am with you ,too. Send them all to back to the jungle. If the owner loves them so much, then they could move into the jungle to live with them. The owner could feel how dangerous to face with other animals in the jungle if they get attacked.

    He shouod of killed the dogs and ate them!!

    Just eliminate the US Post Office & paper mail to save forests.
    Obviously we must end the wage system because it’s slavery.
    Obviously corporations are slave plantations that cause world poverty. Obviously USA forced all nations to need cars because we had so much empty free land in 1900. Obviously we should have said all people own al things & work part-time building only steel 100 story Tower cities connected to mag-lev Trains to eliminate jobs, & stop creating harmful wage jobs.
