FedEx Delivery Driver Flown to Hospital After Severe Dog Attack in Rural Illinois

Western Journal

Published

There has always been tension between dogs and delivery people. No matter how friendly the dog, many see people approaching their home as a threat — and act accordingly.

In many cases, the dogs are contained behind fences or locked doors, and the worst that happens is a volley of warning barks.

But one neighborhood in Calhoun County, Illinois, recently witnessed what can happen when dogs break out.

A FedEx deliveryman, later identified as Paul Gmoser, was delivering to a rural home near Kampsville on Saturday when two dogs living at the home managed to somehow unlatch the door and get out of the house. Their owners were not home at the time.

The two American bulldogs viciously attacked the deliveryman. The owners arrived home within 30 minutes to find their dogs pinning the man to the ground, his arms and legs severely bitten, according to KMOV-TV.

Sheriff William Heffington said it was an unusually brutal scene.

“Once on scene, it was more than a simple dog bite,” he explained, according to KSDK-TV. “At the scene, it was bad. … I’ve never seen anything like this since my time here as sheriff. I mean, this is the worst I’ve seen.”

“He sustained some pretty serious injuries to his upper and lower body.”

Gmoser was flown to a hospital in St. Louis, where he eventually had his left arm amputated from the forearm down.

“My brother, Paul Gmoser, was the driver that was attacked,” Mike Gmoser said Monday, according to the River Bender. “His left hand and wrist had to be amputated. He has significant injuries to his right arm and both legs.

“He has had two surgeries and will require more. He was taken out of ICU today.”

The dogs have no history of aggression even with neighbors frequenting the area — they often go out in public with their owners without issue and are up to date on their vaccinations.

“The dogs noticed a stranger outside, unlatched the door, and went out,” Heffington said.

“First time they ever had anything like this, they take them with them to the, to the … you know, places out to lunch and stuff, they don’t bother, but when they’re home alone, somebody comes in their, in their domain, I guess, they got overprotective and, and it’s an unfortunate incident.”



Because of how serious the injuries were, the owners — who were shocked at their dogs’ behavior — will have to go through a court process to determine the fate of their dogs.

“The owners are pretty upset about the whole thing too,” the sheriff continued.

“They couldn’t believe what they saw from their dogs. I know the homeowners are having trouble dealing with this and they feel really bad about it all.”

A representative from FedEx has issued a statement regarding the deliveryman, stressing that they take the safety of their team members very seriously.

“First and foremost, our thoughts remain focused on the well-being of the individual involved in this incident,” a statement obtained by KTVI-TV read. “There is no higher priority for FedEx Ground than the safety and security of our team members and we are cooperating fully with the investigating authorities at this time.”

Tyranny: Concerned Parents Arrested After School Board Cuts Off Comments on Trans, CRT Policies

Two Virginia parents protesting critical race theory and transgender policy proposals at their children’s schools were arrested Tuesday during a meeting of the Loudoun County School Board. The public comment session was held so parents could voice their concerns over the teaching of CRT as well as a new policy on “transgender and gender-expansive students.” Instead, the board ended the meeting midway and two parents were arrested. Two arrests made at the Loudoun County, Virginia school board meeting after it was declared an unlawful assembly and some parents here to protest against critical race theory and a transgender policy refused to leave right away #CriticalRaceTheory pic.twitter.com/dsZDrqJ0Gp — Gabriella Borter (@gabriellaborter) June 22, 2021 A total of 259 people had signed up to offer public comments, but the meeting was shut down after just 51 had spoken, according to Fox News. Ian Prior, a father of two students and a spokesman for the parent advocacy group Fight for Schools, slammed the board for refusing to allow parents to have a say in how their children are educated on controversial topics such as critical race theory and transgenderism. Prior told Fox News that it’s imperative for parents to “get a seat at the table” to help shape what their children learn in the classroom. Otherwise, schools become vehicles for the mass brainwashing of children with destructive left-wing propaganda. https://youtu.be/AntKpOTq0Fc The brouhaha at the Loudoun County School Board meeting came after former Republican state Sen. Dick Black slammed the board for suspending teacher Tanner Cross in May for stating at a school board meeting that he doesn’t believe “a biological boy can be a girl and vice-versa.” Two weeks ago, a judge ordered Cross’ school to reinstate him, saying his statements were constitutionally protected free speech under the First Amendment.

Recently released videos prove what conservatives have been saying for months now: Trump supporters were not the only ones at the Capitol on Jan. 6. Two leftists infiltrated the Jan. 6 mob that stormed the Capitol and later said they told the FBI how to “infiltrate Trump rallies.” The two men are Walter Masterson and Peter Scattini and a quick look skim through their respective Twitter feeds shows that they are, indeed, leftists. It’s been stoked by the media & by the president. It goes beyond institutional distrust & disgust. So many are painting these protestors as a monolith, when in reality it was an amalgam of families, business owners & anarchists who believed they were fighting for “their” America — Peter Scattini (@jpscattini) January 7, 2021 COVID Nurse at the MAGA Rally does not believe in wearing a mask. pic.twitter.com/1SvKyFpPCf — Walter Masterson (@waltermasterson) December 13, 2020 Multiple videos on Scattini’s YouTube channel show him and Masterson — disguised as reporters from One America News Network — asking questions to a number of Trump supporters outside the Capitol on Jan. 6. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6uCSMnHO7w&t=1556s An additional video blog posted on Feb. 17 features Scattini explaining how FBI agents approached the two men after their Jan. 6 stunt. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WajJZZfoLXg “They introduced themselves as two agents of the FBI and one officer of the NYPD and asked if they could come inside and, of course, we said yes,” Scattini said. “We talked to them for about an hour, we are not in any trouble, but that was super weird.” “Walter is giving them tips on how to infiltrate Trump rallies.” This lines up with a recent assertion made by Fox News personality Tucker Carlson that the FBI had agents on the inside during the Jan. 6 incursion. “Strangely, some of the key people who…
