LOS ANGELES (AP) - The U.S. Postal Service says Houston ranked worst in the nation for dog attacks on letter carriers last year, though the number of bites nationwide declined 5 percent from the previous year.

Los Angeles moved from first down to second on the list.

Nationwide there were 5,581 dog attacks on postal carriers but they were just a fraction of the 4.5 million Americans reported bitten in 2013. The top five postal carrier dog bite cities were Houston, 63; Los Angeles, 61; Cleveland, 58; San Diego, 53 and Chicago, 47. Sixty-two cities were on the top 30 list because of ties.
