Ace, a postman is accused of kicking a miniature Yorkshire terrier named Ria to death.

Ria tried to nip Ace in the ankles as he was making his rounds.  Aces kicked the dog into the air, causing fatal head injuries after the dog landed on a cement pot.

The dog’s owner, 6-year-old Alexandra East was devastated at the loss of Ria.  She didn’t smile again until she was given a new Yorkie puppy named Sparkle.

After a Royal Mail inquiry and official stated “We are satisfied no action should be taken, Mr. Ace has had the opportunity to give his side of the story.  We have told the owners of our deep regret – but dog attacks are a big problem for our staff.

Ace denied he meant to kill Ria will now have a new route.  Ace has received hate mail from a group calling itself the Miniature Yorkshire Terrier Protection Group.
