“Get offa my property, dammit! I don’t care if you did just save my son from my four attacking pit bulls!”
“Stupid letter carriers… always skulking around the neighborhood with their suspicious, bulky bags.”
It was a letter carrier, the ancient enemy of bad dogs!
“…the father then came outside and told the letter carrier to get off his property.”
Logically - and scary - thought:
The father had himself thown the boy to the dogs - murder!!
Afterthought - the stupid explanation:
The father was to drunk/drugged to notice anything until the letter carrier attacked his dogs, then stormed out yelling at the letter carrier, not noticing the son at all - neglect!
What do you think?
