(PORTLAND, Ore.) -- A Portland, Oregon postal worker has been placed on leave after he was caught defecating in a yard on his mail route.
Resident Don Derfler explained to local ABC News affiliate KATU that he noticed the mail carrier "acting odd" in his neighbor's yard across the street, and when the postman pulled down his pants, Derfler pulled out his camera, just in time to catch the man squatting behind some bushes.
Derfler not only caught the mailman in the act on camera, he also snapped a pic of the "delivery," which the resident shared with the news station.
A Postal Service spokesperson told KATU-TV that the mailman in question was placed on unpaid leave while an investigation is completed.
