UPS Driver Accused of Slashing Central Texas Dogs

(CNN) -- A Lakeway, Texas dog owner claims a delivery driver slashed her animals.

For Laura Crowell, her dogs are part of her family.

What she says happened to two of them Friday night has left her shaken and angry. "We were at our local neighborhood lake park, having fun on the boat when our neighbor called, frantic and said the UPS driver just cut your dog," says Crowell.

Crowell and her husband rushed home to find a package on their doorstep surrounded by puddles of blood.

"It looked like someone had been murdered on our front porch," said Crowell.

They found more blood on the driveway and inside the house. After being hurt, the dogs went in through the doggie door.

Crowell's husband posted a picture of Sampson on Facebook.

"Sam has over 50 stitches and some staples in his mouth, it went so deep it went into his cheek into his gums."

Their great dane Seamus has cuts as well.

"Right under his eye a gash, and a big gash down on his cheek," explains Crowell. "My dogs are big and they bark, yes they bark but they're not aggressive. We get deliveries all the time. Six years never had this happen."

Crowell says their yard is surrounded by an invisible fence and the dogs can only go halfway down the driveway.

She says their delivery drivers know to leave packages at the end not on the front porch.

The family called the Travis County Sheriff's Department. A deputy came out, took a report and told them the UPS driver could face animal cruelty charges.

"I want him to pay our medical bills for our dogs," Crowell says.

Crowell also wants an apology and for the driver to lose his job.
