Terrier Terrorizes Mailman

By Vladimir Negron    May 15, 2009 at 11:41PM

A Jack Russell Terrier named Cozmo has halted the mail service to seven homes in West Virginia after terrorizing the postal carrier assigned to the route.

Postal Service spokewoman Cathy Yarosky said the carrier in question was injured after falling while trying to run from the 20-pound terrier.

I don't know whether I should be impressed or disturbed. They could just bring Cliff Clavin (from Cheers) out of retirement and send him to West Virginia in his pressed blues. He'll show Cozmo who's boss.
