A dog in Otay Mesa, California, was repeatedly sprayed with what appears to be pepper spray, and it was all captured on video. According to multiple sources, the Galindo family’s poodle mix, Pupa, can be seen in the video clips writhing in pain immediately after the postal carrier delivered mail – the video footage spans approximately one month of time.
After reviewing the disturbing footage, the Sacramento Bee has reported that the U.S. Postal Service issued the family an apology:
“On behalf of the United States Postal Service, we want to apologize to the Galindo family and Pupa, we do not condone our employees behaving in a manner which is not professional and courteous. The appropriate personnel and corrective action will be taken as well as training given to all local letter carriers.”
The seven-year-old dog suffered red eyes and pain from the incidents, and Galindo thinks that his kids may have been impacted by the spray as well. He told 10 News,that his children, who frequently hold and hug the dog, have had “mysterious” respiratory issues over the past several months, adding that there have been “Countless trips to the ER and urgent care, and countless medications.”
