“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. The high for attacks dated back to the 1980s, at more than 7,000, before maulings by pit bulls and other potentially aggressive dogs became a public issue.”
“Los Angeles topped the 2016 list with 80 attacks on postal workers, followed by Houston with 62 and Cleveland with 60.”

Florida’s Pilot Python Elimination Program. Modern day bounty hunters.
“Nick Banos said he caught a 15-foot, 144-pound python in the Florida Everglades. The men were working on behalf of the South Florida Water Management District, which created a pilot python elimination program to help protect the Everglades and eliminate invasive pythons from public lands. “The Governing Board has approved a pilot monetary compensation program that will incentivize a limited number of public-spirited individuals to kill pythons,” the organization explained on its website. “The program will give participants unprecedented access to SFWMD lands in an effort to remove these destructive snakes, which have become an apex predator in the Everglades.” Every capture of a python 4 feet long or under is worth $50; every foot after that is an extra $25, Banos explained.
Unfortunately, Banos says, the pythons have to be euthanized, which isn’t easy for most snake wranglers. “I have never had to kill one and have always chosen not to, but we have to look at the bigger picture,” he said. “The situation has gotten to the point where everything is getting eaten and the pythons keep multiplying. We’re trying to save as many native species as possible from these invaders.”
