A UPS driver asked a Florida resident for help as he was being pestered by a dog while trying to deliver a package on November 26, Ring camera footage shows.
Brandon Brooks, who was not at home at the time of the encounter, owns the camera that captured this footage in Lehigh Acres and was talking with the UPS driver through the doorbell speaker. The footage shows the driver using a package to shield himself from the dog as he frantically rings the doorbell and asks Brooks for help, explaining that he’s been bit before.
Brooks can be heard asking, “What dog?” and tells the delivery driver the canine is not his dog, but rather, the neighbor’s. He says the dog doesn’t bite, and that he’s a “little [expletive] baby.” He encourages the driver to tell the neighbors to come get their dog just as the animal comes back again, scaring the driver.
Brooks directs the driver, who says he’s shaking, to stomp his feet at the dog to scare it off. Brooks then tells him to throw something at the dog, pointing out several items he can grab from the entrance area. The driver can then be seen picking up a flower pot, scanning around for the dog, and walking away from the house.
Brooks posted a follow-up video showing the moment he confronted his neighbors. He can be heard telling them, “I’ve been telling y’all for a year, keep your dog out of my yard,” warning them next time their dog is in his yard, his dog will mess him up. Credit: Brandon Brooks via Storyful
