On Friday, the United States Postal Service released their national rankings in dog attacks.

In Oklahoma, it looks like dogs aren't fans of postal workers in Tulsa - who led the state with 14 attacks in 2018.

In 2017, there were eight attacks reported in 2017.

Oklahoma City was the second city in the state with the most dog attacks with 12.

In years past, 2018 saw less attacks than in 2017 (5,200) and 2016 (4,700). In 2018, there were 5,714 attacks, a news release said.

To prevent attacks, USPS officials ask dog owners to secure their animals when they deliver the mail, and if they feel unsafe, you should go to the post office to pick up your mail.
