A shocking story out of Kenton Hills near Devou Park where a grandfather says he witnessed the family dog deliberately run over and killed by the mailman:
Nelson Hamm said the dog, Nalah, had been following the mail carrier and got near the tires of a small postal vehicle when the employee drove off. Hamm said vehicle ran over the dog but became stuck, so the mail carrier rocked it back and forth over the animal until the tire finally spun free.See more with a video report from WLWT.
"When he ran up on her, he knew he was on something, and her legs was going like this, and he kept on going, gunning it and gunning it and gunning it," Hamm said.
Nalah made it to her feet and walked toward the house, but Hamm said it was too late.
It couldn't be an easy house call for Postal Service supervisor Terry Estrada to make. "Let me express my greatest apologies," she told 77-year-old Nelson Hamm in front of his house on Devou Woods Drive in Kenton Hills. "I'm so sorry that this happened."
Hamm said the mailman went up the street and went about his business like nothing happened. "My buddy who he delivered some stuff too said ‘did you see how fast that guy was going?' and I said ‘Yea, I saw him'. He said ‘I wonder why?' and I said ‘I know why. My dogs laying there dead in the house, I know why'".|
