Police said a man called 911 about 2 p.m. saying his pit bull terrier had attacked a mail carrier and then bit him when he tried to intervene.

When emergency crews arrived, the man was treated by paramedics while the dog remained locked inside the home.

Animal welfare officers eventually removed the dog from the home about 2:45 p.m.

Calls to the Oklahoma City animal welfare office to learn the fate of the dog were not immediately returned.
