It’s not uncommon for mail carriers to be bitten by a dog. In fact, Minneapolis ranked 7th in the nation last year for the highest number of dog incidents.

Minnesota USPS spokesman Brenden Larson:

“It’s every day of our postal lives you know.   We are kind of a postal family here and we really want to leave work the same way we came into work… you know healthy.”

Larson asks dog owners to make sure their pet is secure around the time your mail is supposed to be delivered.
