Canine crisis

Letter Carrier William Hughes Jr. was recently delivering mail in a Bozeman, MT, neighborhood when he saw a boy on a scooter who was being attacked by two dogs.

Hughes rushed to the boy’s aid and safely repelled the animals.

The Postal Service employee helped the boy get home, then called animal control to report the attack.

The boy’s parents took him to an emergency room, where he was treated for multiple dog bites.

He recovered from the incident.

Employees featured in “Heroes’ Corner” also receive letters of commendation through the Postmaster General Heroes’ Program. The nomination form is available on Blue.
