According to an incident report from Orting Valley Fire and Rescue, EMT responders encountered a woman on the property as the attack continued in the background. The woman locked the gate and would not let EMTs onto the property. She said that the UPS driver was trespassing and kicked one of her dogs. She told the medics that the dogs were going to kill the man.
“The EMT man that responded notes that he was screaming for his life,” Davis said. “There was a tremendous loss of blood he could see, even from outside the chain link fence and the dogs were not stopping.”
The Pierce County Sheriff’s Department said the driver called 911.
When Orting Valley Fire & Rescue arrived at the home, the driver was reportedly cornered by the dogs against a trailer on the property that was about 75 feet inside a locked driveway gate.
While they were driving away, the woman yelled at them, according to the report.
“You are a (expletive) idiot. Now the dogs are going to get out. I’m going to get my gun and shoot you,” she said, according to the report.
Davis said he is considering a civil case against the woman on the property. The animals have been quarantined, which is standard procedure after such a dog attack. Davis said the dogs will at least have a “dangerous dog declaration” issued, but could be euthanized.
