Mailmen and dogs get along a whole lot better than we thought.

Brian Chapman, 21, is a postal carrier who got caught engaging in a sexual act with a dog while on a route in Crookston, Minn.

A resident along the route spotted Chapman and his four-legged object of desire doing some X-rated things on a surveillance camera in the customer's garage last month.

Chapman has been charged with burglary and bestiality and we're at a loss as to where exactly he falls in the study of how much sex Americans are having.

The Postal Service issued a statement condemning Chapman's behavior and revealing he no longer works with the outfit:

The actions alleged to have occurred here are clearly unacceptable behavior and do not reflect the efforts of the thousands of professional, dedicated carriers in our workforce. While the Postal Service does not comment on individual personnel matters, we can confirm that Brian Chapman is no longer employed with the United States Postal Service.”

Even if he had managed to hold onto his job, it may not have been for long -- he's looking at up to 10 years behind bars for the burglary and 90 days for doing the wild thing with Fido.

Let's just hope this doesn't catch on. Postal workers already have a bad enough reputation.
