Dog Attacks Mail Carrier

A Lubbock mail carrier is recovering after being attacked by a dog Thursday afternoon. The mail carrier was delivering mail in the 4900 block of 44th Street, when the dog jumped over a six foot tall fence and attacked.

The dog is a lab mix that weighs between 80 and 100 pounds. It severely bit the mail carrier's hand, and the carrier is being treated for the injuries.

The dog is in custody of Animal Services, and a dangerous dog hearing must take place within the next 20 days.  A new state law says it is possible that the owners of the dog could face jail time.
