Snow, rain heat and the gloom of night are nothing compared to the hazards mail carriers face on the job these days.
Bedford resident Bob Webb said he’s been bitten by dogs, attacked by a rooster and even shot at during the 32 years he carried mail for the Bedford Post Office. Webb retired from that job Friday, Dec. 3, amongst friends and co-workers who honored him with an open house at the post office.
Oddly, it was the rooster that did the most damage. Lifting up his left pantleg, he showed several patches where the wounds have yet to heal.
