In sensational news, dog attacks are up! In June and July of ’07 the number of dog attacks on postal workers doubled as compared to the same period last year. All of last year there were only 81 reports of dog attacks, so far this year there have been 71! Why is this happening? Well the infamous William Lynd (note: he’s not actually famous) who is responsible for workplace health and safety at Canada Post had this to say:
The spike in attacks is a result of people becoming more free with their pets, letting them roam around instead of taking the precautions responsible pet owners should.
Shenanagins! I’m supposed to lock up my dog all day because he’s a bit nippy? Maybe if posties didn’t have such meaty legs this wouldn’t be a problem.
