No penalties for poop delivery

TAMPA, Fla., Feb. 16 (UPI) -- The U.S. Postal Service said a mail carrier will not face penalties for delivering dog poop to a neighbor she accuses of failing to pick up after his canines.

Bruce Michaud of Tampa complained to the Postal Service last month when neighbor Toni Llauger, a mail carrier, knocked on his door while still wearing her work uniform and handed him a bag of dog feces, claiming they belonged to his dogs, the St. Petersburg (Fla.) Times reported Wednesday.

Llauger and other neighbors claim Michaud doesn't pick up after his dogs, rather he mimes the motions with plastic bags and leaves the waste behind.

Vicki Plummer of the Postal Service's consumer affairs division said the fecal delivery was a personal issue because Llauger was not on duty at the time of the incident.

"Ms. Llauger has been instructed not to wear her uniform when conducting this type of personal business," Plummer said.

Officials said Llauger did not break any laws and will not face any penalties.
