FOI reveals dogs are sticking to stereotypes… 

The Welwyn and Hatfield Times report: 

POSTMEN and women have to run a gauntlet of savage “near-death” attacks by vicious animals, a union rep has claimed this week.

And the vicious maulings are on the increase, the Communication Workers’ Union (CWU) official has said, after it was revealed 30 attacks had taken place on workers based at Welwyn Hatfield and Potters Bar delivery offices in just two years.

Branch secretary Tom Walker told the WHT: “Of course most people when they think of dog attacks they think of the famous breeds that are in the news, but you would be surprised that the majority of dog attacks on postal workers come from the breeds you wouldn’t expect like terriers and Jack Russells.”
