Dogs and dog bites pose everyday hazards to the men and women who deliver the mail in Florida and the rest of the United States.
I found an article posted at the United States Post Office Official Website which provides dog bite statistics and tips for avoiding dog bites. SInce the site and information were posted by the United States Post Office, I thought it would make sense to review the site and post a link to the information. If anybody has first hand knowledge about dog bites, its the mail carrier. In 2005, over 3200 letter carriers were victims of dog bites. For more information about the statistics and advice to help avoid being the victim of a dog bite, go to Dog Bite Prevention.
