A pitbull named Lucy participated in the U.S. Postal Service National Dog Bite Prevention Week Thursday outside the YMCA in Los Angeles. Dog attacks on postal workers rose last year to 6,755, up 206 from the previous year and the highest in three decades, as internet shopping booms and consumers increasingly demand seven-day-a-week package delivery and groceries dropped at their doorstep. Los Angeles topped the 2016 list with 80 attacks on postal workers.
