Dog Bite Prevention
(with comments)

In less than two weeks, it's National Dog Bite Prevention Week -- created by the U.S. Postal Service.

The hot, sultry period between mid-July and September - known as Dog Days - are presumed by many to be the time of year dogs are most likely to be aggressive and bite someone. Statistics, however, prove otherwise.

In 2004 - as in previous years - the number of Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)-reported dog attacks and bites among Postal Service employees began to rise during the months of April, May, and June for a total of 926 during that period. The number of incidents then began to decline during July, August, and September, falling to 890.

Remember: Don't be fooled because he's cute.
