A UPS driver in Missouri left a note on a family’s door after he accidentally struck the dog while out on his route.
A friend of the family found the Boxer lying dead in the front yard.
According to ABC 7, in the note the UPS worker admitted to hitting the dog, but he had to continue on his route.
The note encouraged the family to follow up with the company regarding the accident.
UPS has since said the driver followed company protocol.
The claim will be settled by a third party insurance company.
