A family in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, is mourning the loss of their young dog, Tank, who they say was killed by a UPS driver. As reported by WRAL News, the not quite one-year-old dog was in his own yard when he was allegedly run over by a UPS driver who was delivering a package.
According to Tank’s owner, Allison Jacobson, specific instructions had been left for UPS – she told the news agency, “The packages are to be left at the end of the driveway or on the brick wall, where the dogs cannot access them and to keep our property safe and the dog safe.”
But the driver did come into the driveway – Jacobson stated:
“I ran over to Tank to be with Tank. He ran over and killed my dog in my driveway and Tank died in my arms.”
UPS in looking into the incident and has said that they are sorry for what happened. The local authorities have been informed and they are investigating.
