CLEVELAND, Ohio (WJW) – Several residents on Throckley Avenue in Cleveland will once again have their mail delivered.  

The FOX 8 I-Team reported Wednesday that the mail delivery was temporarily suspended on the east side street after a mail carrier encountered an aggressive dog on Tuesday. 

A spokesperson with USPS told the I-Team Thursday mail delivery has been restored for “all residents except the home of the dog owner.”

USPS officials say aggressive and unrestrained animals are a serious issue. 

“One bite or fall can cause a serious injury; they are painful, yet they can be prevented,” said Naddia Dhalai, a spokeswoman with the United States Postal Service. “We request all customers keep their dogs restrained during normal delivery hours to protect the safety of the letter carriers.”
