Mail carrier Bryan Bloomquist survived a harrowing attack by two pit bulls, with help from neighbors and police who killed the dogs.
The adversarial relationship between mail carriers and dogs is well-known.
But as two pit bulls tore relentlessly into Bryan Bloomquist's arms and legs outside a north Minneapolis house Tuesday, the mail carrier didn't think about clichés. He thought about dying.
"I had no fight left in me at that point," said Bloomquist, a 6-foot 3-inch, 300-pound Iraq war veteran said from his hospital bed Wednesday. "I thought it was over."

Read the story -- he did everything right, the neighbors were even hitting on the dogs with a baseball bat and they didn't let go.
And 6-3, 300 lbs. (no exaggeration, I met the guy once.)
NO Cheers, unfortunately.
You and Chet should get a room.
Look at your moniker! You and Chet are practically related.
“NO Cheers, unfortunately.”
Cheers that the filthy dogs were blown away, instead of going to the doggy hotel.
I’ll take 100 pit bull threads over 1 religion thread.
Um...I think yours is more of a Rottweiler.
Poorly trained and that’s on the owner.
I am kidding!
The dogs do what they enjoy and that’s tag teaming in a maulfest. The rationalizations of the people who keep the breed are breathtaking to behold. I should keep a freaking hyena or wild african dog if it’s all about pushing the limit.
Geez! The person who posted this article is from Minnesota and has met the man in the article. It's a local story about a vet who was almost killed by two crazed dogs. A far as I know, the OP doesn't spend all day, everyday posting pit bull stories.
You're rather insulting there, noob.
“Then I heard the gunshots go off,” he said. “It was the sweetest sound that I’ve ever heard. Those dogs got what they deserved.”
This is sad. Where I live, all the mail carriers have a pocket full of dog treats. When the mail comes, it’s like the ice cream truck for the neighborhood’s dogs.
THAT is what we need at the Mexican border. A no mans land about 50’ wide, fenced on both sides, patrolled by packs of mean pitbulls!
Pit Bulls, man I hate those things. I dont want to get going anymore about them so I’ll read your thread.
Prayers up for this man.
The owners need to be in jail 1 year for every tooth mark that man received and if they can’t figure out how many that is, just put them in for life. And sell everything they own to pay the guy’s bills.
Lock-on jaw. . .defend yourself (hit them, et al) and they lock on harder. Scary moments, glad he survived. The owners I hope, will be held accountable for their dogs.
ahhh; started this and took a phone call...forgot they were killed by police. Owners now just need to be held accountable. . .
