MANCHESTER, Conn. (CBS Connecticut and AP) – Some residents of a Manchester neighborhood aren’t receiving their mail at home anymore because a local dog is reportedly biting the mailmen.
A notice obtained by WVIT-TV 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 this is 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.
