This may not be what you think. It happened Saturday on the 600 block of Waldman on Flint's south side. Neighbors say a pit bull viciously attacked a mail carrier over the weekend, and the carrier is still in the hospital. They say the pit bull jumped out of a window while the mailman was delivering a package.

The pit bull went straight for the carrier's face and neck. Neighbors rushed to help and get the mail carrier to the hospital. The postal service says the carrier will need several surgeries before he can even begin to heal.

The Postal Service tells us this sector, including Detroit, is the sixth worst for dog attacks. Please make sure your dog is attended to.
