New York, February 6: A woman from Georgia, US, was shocked when she saw an Amazon driver attempting to take her dog away in his delivery truck. Terrika Currence, who lives in Henry County, said that the incident occurred shortly after she received a box of products from the online retailer. She filmed the confrontation and shared it with a local news channel.

In the video, Currence can be heard accusing the driver of stealing her red-nose pitbull from her yard. The New York Post reported that when she opened the back door of the truck, she found the dog inside a bin. She grabbed the dog and demanded the driver to put it back. The driver did not offer any explanation for his actions except that he liked the dog and wanted a puppy.

Currence said that the driver’s behaviour had traumatised her daughter, who is now afraid of delivery drivers. She also said that she was relieved that Amazon fired the driver and that the police were investigating the case.
