A post woman was filmed pepper spraying a husky dog in the face.
The unidentified US Postal Service worker squirted the burning substance at the male dog, called Coco, as he approached her from behind a yard fence in Los Angeles Monday.
Coco did not appear to have been acting aggressively towards the woman, and had not been jumping up on the railings to try and get closer to her when the attack happened.
Cocos owner Jose Amezcua noticed his pet was acting strangely when he returned from work that evening, and was horrified by what he saw after watching the footage.
He told CBSLA: He was rubbing his face on the grass…obviously something wrong with him. I was able to rinse him out that night.
