Mystery dog halts mail delivery

UPI – Mail delivery in a neighbourhood in Kansas, United States (US), was halted for nearly two months because of what the US Postal Service described as a “vicious dog” that neighbours said might not even exist.

Residents of the 3,000 block of South 46th Terrace in Kansas City said mail delivery was halted April 29, after the local post office sent them a letter saying a “vicious dog” was creating hazardous conditions for delivery workers.

Lisa White said she and her neighbours are unaware of any such dog.

“I walk my big dog every morning, and I don’t see a dog,” she told WDAF-TV.

Residents were told the neighbourhood would be receiving community cluster mail boxes at the end of their block, but they failed to arrive for weeks.

Media relations spokesman Mark Inglett at the US Postal Service, said this week that mail delivery would be resumed as the dog situation had been resolved. He did not elaborate on the specifics of the resolution.

The US Postal Service revealed earlier this month that 5,300 employees were attacked by dogs while delivering mail in 2022.
