MORE DOGS OUTSIDE AS THE WEATHER HEATS UP


MORE DOGS OUTSIDE AS THE WEATHER HEATS UP... AND THAT MEANS MORE DANGER FOR MAIL CARRIERS. AS PART OF NATIONAL DOG BITE PREVENTION WEEK - THE POSTAL SERVICE WANTS YOU TO REMEMBER A FEW THINGS ABOUT THAT PERSON WHO BRINGS YOU YOUR MAIL EVERY DAY. LAST YEAR-- DOGS ATTACKED MORE THAN 65-HUNDRED POSTAL WORKERS... INCLUDING 43 IN COLUMBUS. THE POSTAL SERVICE IS ASKING PEOPLE TO SECURE THEIR DOGS TO KEEP BOTH PEOPLE AND PUPS SAFE. AND HERE'S ONE TO REMEMBER-- NEVER LET YOUR KIDS GET THE MAIL FROM WHILE STANDING BETWEEN A POSTAL CARRIER AND THE FAMILY PET - THE DOG MAY VIEW THE POSTAL WORKER AS A THREAT AND ATTACK THEM.  According to the US Postal Service, five Ohio cities are among the top 30 for attacks on employees. Cleveland tied for second at 58 attacks, while Columbus ranked No. 8 with 43. At No. 18, Cincinnati had 28 bites. Dayton at No. 23 tied with Charlotte with 22 attacks and Toledo, at no. 30, rounded out the list at 15.
