Shocking moment as an Amazon driver is forced to run for his life when a loose dog chases him – but despite its screams, the owner maintains the dog is just ‘friendly’.
Even though the man lets out a series of high-pitched screams, as Nala chases after him at astronomical speed, his owner protests that he was just being “friendly.”
The unsuspecting delivery driver continued with his usual day, until he received a horrifying surprise upon his arrival at the door of a house in Manchester, Connecticut, USA.
Footage captured by the owner’s doorbell camera shows the worker gently placing the package on the ground just seconds before a dog terrifyingly lunges in his direction at frightening speed.
The petrified man isn’t taking any chances, he runs and screams in pure fear at the top of his lungs, leaving his truck open and unattended far behind him in the dust.
It wasn’t a typical day for this Amazon driver, who was forced to run for his life after a loose dog heated his tail until his nerves were on edge.
When the shocked Amazon worker crossed the street and was out of view of the camera, the owner of the house opened the door to call the pet.
He yelled at the animal to return to the property, reiterating: ‘Come here Nala! Come!’
As Nala casually walks back to her front yard, the woman yells at the terrified Amazon driver, stating that the animal meant no harm and noting that she was “just friendly.”
Finally, after sending the worker screaming down the street in the cold snow, Nala returns to her warm home while wagging her tail with joy.
The incident comes shortly after another Amazon driver tried to steal a woman’s puppy from her yard by smuggling it into his delivery truck.
Terrika Currence of Henry County recorded the wild incident involving a delivery driver and his dog.
The Amazon driver was dropping off a package at Currence’s house when the attempted dog kidnapping occurred.
“When I open the door to put the package in the house and the dog food, my daughter screams and says, ‘The Amazon stole our puppy,'” Currence recalled.
Currence owns her own skin care company called Beyond Skin Deep and says she immediately dropped the skin care products and ran to rescue the dog.
In a video of the confrontation, which has since gone viral, Currence opens the back door of the Amazon truck and yells at the driver.
The dog, Nala, chased the delivery man through the cold snow down the street, making him scream, but her owner maintains that she is just “friendly.”
‘As soon as I opened the truck, I had the puppy inside a container. I had to grab the puppy and get him out of the truck,” he told WSB-TV Atlanta.
While the unnamed Amazon driver has not been charged, Currence is sure he was about to leave with his dog.
“I was ready to go out with our dog,” she said, adding that he didn’t apologize or offer any explanation.
Currence called the police, who are reportedly investigating. He also filed a complaint with Amazon.
An Amazon spokesperson confirmed to local news that the driver had been fired.
“We have apologized to the customer and are glad that his dog returned unharmed. The driver involved no longer delivers for Amazon and we have contacted authorities to assist in the investigation,” Amazon’s statement said.
