Letterbox war zone

2013-10-23 00:00

IF you see a postman limping away from a postbox or clutching his hand, chances are that he has just been at the receiving end of a nasty attack. By a dog.

Ramchander’s first major incident was in 2010 when a Rottweiler bit him. He had to undergo reconstructive surgery to his leg. “I put a letter inside the box and as I turned to leave, the dog came out the gate [that was not latched] and bit me on the ankle on my right leg. It came up my tendon,” he said. He was working at the Malvern depot in Queensburgh at the time.
