Officials said Indianapolis ranked 15th in the nation in attacks on letter carriers in 2013 with 29 bites reported. Fort Wayne was 45th with 13. Houston had the most bites with 63.
The USPS says a carrier in Indianapolis missed 42 days of work after being bit severely in the leg, while another carrier in Fort Wayne missed 19 days after being bitten in the hands.
