Stacey Champion said in the hearing she was sending the dog to surprise her son for his birthday and blames the post office for the little mix-up, saying:
"They don't have a display of what should be shipped and what should not be shipped."
The U.S. Postal Inspector who was present at the hearing outlined postal service procedure and explained:
"When you present a package of the counter line, we always ask you 'is it perishable, hazardous, liquid, fragile?'"
We think a puppy MIGHT — and maybe this is just us — qualify as perishable and fragile.
Here is the real kicker though. When she WAS asked what was in the box, she told postal employees it was a toy robot!
Our minds are blown by the audacity of this woman.
Was she granted custody of the the dog that has been with Animal Control since the incident?
