Vicious Dog Attack
A Vicious Dog Attack has killed a U.S. Postal Worker in North Florida last week. The vicious dog attack occurred when the postal worker’s delivery truck broke down. Five large vicious dogs attacked the 61-year-old postal worker. The tragic incident occurred in Putnam County at Interlachen Lake Estates on Sunday afternoon. The dog’s owner and several of his neighbors heard the woman’s cries and rushed to help. The account is too brutal to list the details. When the police arrived on the scene the owner had secured the dogs in the fence. The police provided first aid until the paramedics arrived. The victim Pamela Jane Rock of Melrose, Florida went into cardiac arrest as paramedics on the scene were able to revive her. She was transferred to UF Shands where she died the following day.
