DETROIT- The owner of a dog that attacked a mail carrierFriday in Detroit said the dog escaped a home.

A man driving on Ardmore Street near EightMile Road on the citys west side saw the vicious attack and people trying to stop the animal. Video showed the dog attacking the mail carrier as people tried to stop the animal.

One person tried to intervene with a broom, while the man in the vehicle got out and used a trash can, but the attack continued. Eventually, a neighbor was able to get hold of the dogs leash and get it off the mail carrier, and the man who was in the vehicle got the victim in his car for protection.

The dogs owner said she was at work when the dog ran out while her nephew was leaving.

By the time I got here, Boss Hogg was in the house and I was waiting for animal control, she said.

The woman said she got the dog from a breeder in 2012. She said he isnt left outside and has never bitten or attacked before.

The dog managed to bite through the mail carriers shoes. EMS transported the victim to a hospital.

Watch the videohere.WARNING: The footage is graphic.

The U.S. Postal Service released a statement after the attack:

The Postal Service is investigating this tragic incident and working with local authorities. We are deeply grateful to the concerned citizens who came the aid of our letter carrier. Unfortunately attacks such as this provide the postal service an opportunity to remind dog owners that it is their responsibility to restrain their pet in order to avoid attacks against our employees while they are in performance of their duties.

The Postal Service offers these tips for homeowners to prevent dog attacks:

Teach your children and family members to not take mail directly while the family pet is nearby. The animal may see that as a threatening gesture.

The USPS is using technology to help keep mail carriers safe. When a customer uses the Package Pickup application on , customers are asked to indicate whether there is a dog at the address. That information is relayed through the delivery scanners.

If a mail carrier feels threatened, the owner may be asked to pick up mail at a nearby post office. And if a dog is roaming the neighborhood, the neighbors may also be asked to pick up mail at the Post Office.

Thank you for respecting the privacy of this employee as he recovers from injuries suffered in this attack.
