Reports of dog attacks interrupt Connecticut mail service

MANCHESTER, Conn. (AP) — Some residents of a Connecticut neighborhood aren’t receiving their mail at home anymore because a local dog is reportedly biting the mailmen.

A notice obtained by WVIT-TV (http://bit.ly/2pgpnBX ) from a local post office says that, due to repeated attacks on letter carriers by a local dog, the postal service will now only deliver mail in a Manchester neighborhood curbside or to the post office.

The letter explains that the move is needed so mailmen won’t have to get out of their vehicles and risk a possible dog attack.

Manchester resident Michael Varni says he’ll have to go to the post office to get his mail until he installs a mailbox on the side of the road.

Police say they have no knowledge of any incidents involving dog attacks in the neighborhood.
