If you thought carrying the mail was an easy job, think again. According to statistics published this week by the US Postal Service, the job of a mail carrier can be downright dangerous.
In all, nearly 5,900 mail service providers reported being bitten last year.
The statistics were posted as part of Dog Bite Prevention Week which promotes awareness about dog bites and how to prevent them.
The program encourages owners to enforce obedience training, teaching dogs to accept service providers as non-threatening, keeping pets inside and away from the door when mail is delivered, and proper socialization, especially as puppies.
So which were the worst cities for mail delivery and how did the fair city of Dallas stack up?
