Postal Worker Receives 26 Stitches from Dog Attack

Postal carrier, Len Epperson, always knew what to do in case of a dog attack, but this time he could not stop the 100-pound pit bull that was coming right for him. The dog attack resulted in an ambulance ride to the emergency room and 26 stitches to close wounds to his nose and under his eye. Epperson kicked the dog back several times, and struggled to remove his pepper spray from his belt, but the dog overtook Epperson and knocked him to the ground, biting his ankles and forearms. Two witnesses came to help distract the dog and once they did Epperson tried to get up, but the pit bull came back knocked him down and attacked his face.
