I’d expect the postal worker would be dead on the scene or hospitalized long term if it were pits. Pits are on record for stripping flesh off of bone, amputating body parts etc. and when that happens, you don’t check out of the hospital after being ‘treated and released’.

Maybe Postal workers should be packing guns?

Why should the police be the only ones killing dogs in self-protection? /sarc

Cause of death is not known. It could have been a heart attack. He even could have slipped. Unlikely of course but the police will not say outright that the attack was the cause of death.
