Poll:
Do you agree with the decision to allow the mailman who defecated in a Portland yard to return to work on that route?

PORTLAND - Some neighbors in Southeast Portland are upset that a postal carrier caught relieving himself in a backyard was returning to his old route.

A man in the 7000-block of SE Ogden snapped photos of his mail carrier defecating in his neighbor's yard last April.

A spokesperson for the post office said the carrier was disciplined and temporarily taken off his route, but he has since been allowed back.

"We want to see him replaced at the very least. We don't want him on our route. We don't trust him," neighbor Rick Yeoman said.

A USPS spokesperson said something like this will not happen again with that mail carrier in the neighborhood.

"Absolutely not. We're pretty confident that everyone has the message," USPS spokesperson Kerry Jeffrey said.

Neighbors said they've contacted lawyers to see what their options are.
