All of a sudden, the dogs on their route don’t seem so bad…
Dogs are usually pegged as a postal worker’s worst enemy, but in one southwest Calgary neighbourhood a hawk is the one spoiling for a fight.
Mail delivery in Bayview has been temporarily suspended because a hawk has been nose-diving the local mail carrier.
“The hawk just really seemed to have a hate on for that particular letter carrier,” Teresa Williams, spokeswoman for Canada Post, told CBC News.
“The attacks got so bad that she was resorting to wearing a bicycle helmet. And the hawk even broke the bicycle helmet.”
So, along with dog cookies maybe the mail carriers should be carrying a little bag of fresh mice.
