Are dogs in the lonestar state more aggressive than others?

It seems so, according to a new postal service ranking of US cities with the highest dog attacks.  With 42 incidents reported last year, San Antonio tied Seattle for the number two spot...while Houston and Minneapolis both came in ninth place.  Dallas shared the number 13 slot with Tacoma, Washington.

The postal service recommends dog owners cut down on bite risks by enrolling their pets in obedience training and making sure they're on a leash if a letter carrier comes to the door.
