Mail-grabbing dog draws USPS ire
July 2, 2012No Comments
But the US Postal Service suspended delivery to his house in mid-April after a substitute mail carrier complained.
“There was a dog on the other side of the mail slot when this carrier was delivering the mail,” said Sabrina Todd of USPS. “The carrier felt threatened at that particular time when the dog reached for the mail.”
The post office said it sent Sattler a letter on April 12 that it suspended his delivery, but he said he never saw it. A May US Postal Bulletin says that when there is animal interference, the Post Office is supposed to phone the customer. Officials said they didn’t have Sattler’s number — although it’s listed in the online White Pages.
