Dog-bite claims rise to record

(Continued)

NEW YORK —

 


Breed-specific bans

Despite trainers saying breed-specific bans aren't the key to safer communities, many cities have banned certain breeds.


The U.S. Postal Service reported that 5,581 employees were attacked by dogs in 2013. Houston had the most attacks on postal employees with 63, while Los Angeles was second with 61, USPS said in a separate statement Wednesday.

"There's a myth we often hear," Linda DeCarlo, the postal service's manager of safety, said in the statement. "Don't worry, my dog won't bite."
