BROWNSVILLE - A dog is injured by a Brownsville Public Utilities meter reader.
It happened Tuesday as the worker was making his way back to his vehicle. BPUB officials say the worker, who had previously been attacked by a dog on the job, got scared and tried to shoo away the animal with his foot. The dog was injured in the eye.
Police and animal control were called. The dog's owner was cited for not properly securing the animal, and the BPUB employee was cited for inhumane treatment.
