Postal Worker Bitten By ....

a human. A postal worker was making his rounds in Houma LA and made sure the house he was delivering too had it's dog tied up. But he still ended up being bitten, by a human.

The family dog was tied up in the front yard. The coast looked clear, or so the mail carrier thought.

As the man boldly made his way towards the mailbox, little did he know that a much bigger animal was watching and waiting.

Police in Houma, La., say the mail carrier was caught off-guard on August 10 when Mark Plumb, 20, ran barking from a house across the street and bit him on the shoulder. Plumb then ran back into the house.

"[The postal worker] was very shaken up by [Plumb's] attack," Lt. Todd Duplantis said. "Initially, he didn't think he was in any danger because the dog was chained up."

The mail carrier reportedly suffered minor injuries.

When police questioned Plumb, a Butler, Mo., resident who was visiting a friend in the area, he told them that he bit the carrier as a prank. Yahoo News

Do you suppose Plumb's friend will chain him up on future visits?
