Residents in Salford  (Households in and around Briar Hill Avenue in Little Hulton.) were sent a letter warning them their post has been temporarily suspended for health and safety reasons after two postmen were confronted by the animal.
One of the men allegedly had to defend himself with his postbag – which was damaged in the attack. Neither of the postmen were bitten.
