Dog vs Postman

posted Jan 19, 2020, 9:59 AM by Sherwood Estates
Last week our postal carrier was bitten by a roaming German Shepard dog (on Chouteau Drive).  This is the third "dog versus postman" incident in our neighborhood within the past few months   It has occurred on both the East and West side of Chouteau Trafficway.  The results are suspension of mail delivery in the area until the matter is settled with the Post Office, City, and Animal Control.    The post office will notify you if you are impacted.  

If this continues - the consequences could become more severe.  We've heard, but not officially, that they make force to install community mailboxes (like the example below).  Please, please, do not let our neighborhood get a reputation of having uncontrolled dogs.   It injuries walkers, leashed pets on a stroll, and delivery drivers.   And most of us don't want to have our mail delivered to a common location -- away from our Sherwood Estates home.
