The latest scuffle between postal carrier and dog ended in a draw in San Francisco’s Cayuga Terrace neighborhood Tuesday.
The carrier, who was bitten while delivering mail in the 200 block of Tingley Street around 3 p.m., pepper-sprayed the dog and fled.
He told police the large white yapping pooch suddenly pushed open a closed gate and charged at him. Police later located the dog, along with its owner.
The case is now being investigated by Animal Care and Control, police said.
The dog’s fate was not immediately known.
