A United States Postal Service worker was attacked and suffered severe injuries after a dog charged at her, according to the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Department.

The incident report states that Saturday, June 15th, a Deputy was dispatched to a call regarding a dog bite on Harbin Road. The Deputy met the victim at the Lincoln Medical Center ER.

The postal worker stated she was delivering a package at the time of the attack. She told the Deputy the garage door was open, and when she placed a package down, a dog appeared and latched onto her left arm. She told the deputy she had to pull out a can of dog spray and spray the dog three times before it let go of her.

The Deputy notified the homeowner of the situation.

The report shows that animal control took the dog and told the owner that he would have two weeks to provide a shot record before releasing the dog back to him.

No charges have been filed in connection with this incident.
