STANTON, Del. (AP/WBOC)- Delaware State Police say a trooper shot and injured one of two dogs that had attacked a postal worker and a woman walking her own dog.

Police were called about 4:15 p.m. Friday to Stanton and told that two dogs had attacked a mail carrier. When the trooper arrived on the scene, he saw two dogs attacking a smaller dog that was being walked by its owner.

The trooper fired his service weapon, injuring one of the dogs and ending the attack.

The 55-year-old mail carrier was taken to Christiana Hospital with multiple dog bites. The woman walking her dog declined treatment for a dog bite. Her dog stayed with her.

The two attacking dogs were captured by officers from the Kent County SPCA and received treatment. The SPCA is investigating the attacks.
