DETROIT (WKZO) -- The U.S. Postal Service says The City of Angels is America's top city when it comes to dog attacks.

A USPS survey found 69 incidents involving dogs biting mail carriers were reported in Los Angeles during fiscal year 2012.  San Antonio and Seattle tied for second place with 42 incidents each.

Also finishing in the top ten were Chicago, San Francisco, Philadelphia and Detroit.  USPS officials add nearly 59-hundred postal employees were attacked by dogs nationwide last year.
