The old cliche about dogs and mailmen is no myth. Dogs really do attack postal carriers — 2,863 of them last year alone. Ryan Bradford, a mailman from San Diego, has taken pictures of every growling, snarling, slobbering beast on his route. As Ryan explains, "The mailman/dog relationship is no lie. It's like they can smell it on you, a scent that triggers their hunting instinct." These encounters had to be pretty terrifying at the time, but — forgive me employees of the USPS — they're also kind of hilarious. []
