The United States Postal Service (USPS) is urging dog owners to lock their dogs in another room until a delivery exchange is done.

“In 2019 employees in Minnesota were bitten 94 times by dogs. ”

Minnesota USPS spokeswoman Nicole Hill says dog attacks and bites are 100-percent preventable when dog owners remain vigilant and properly restrain their dogs. She’s urging owners who leave their dogs outside to leash them away from the mailbox.
