UPDATE: Mailman Goes 'Number 2' In Yard While On Delivery Route

PORTLAND, Ore. - A mail carrier who was caught using a yard as his personal toilet will not be fired.

The incident happened last month at a home in southeast Portland and a neighbor, Don Derfler, captured the man in the act with his camera.

Derfler had been waiting for his babysitter when he saw his mailman acting odd at his neighbor's house across the street. The postal worker then pulled down his pants and that's when Derfler began snapping pictures.

"We trust people like the postal service and meter readers and people of that nature," Derfler told us when we interviewed him in April. "To come on to our property and to defecate - it's just wrong."

KGW.COM - Don Derfler's own wife didn't believe him when told her the mail carrier was defecating in public. Then he showed her the pictures. 

Derfler saw it all from his living room window while he was baby sitting his son Wednesday afternoon. 

"He started pulling his pants down and started defecating and at that point I grabbed my camera and started to take pictures," said Derfler.  

Officials with the U.S. Postal Service say they are disheartened and disappointed. 

"We're taking this very seriously and I really want to apologize to our customers and to the public. I've worked for the Postal Service for many years and have never heard of an incident like this and I hope I never do again," said Ron Anderson with the U.S. Postal Service.
