Mail delivery is a dangerous gig. As much as we appreciate a loyal pup’s protective instincts, it’s hard for mail carriers not to take the growls and snarls personally. Presenting: Ryan Bradford’s photo essay All the Dogs Want to Kill Me, featuring canines jumping at fences, burrowing under gates and glaring out mail slots in full-on hunting mode. OK, so he’s no Robert Mapplethorpe, but keep in mind that these photos were snapped with a cheap, disposable camera in a high stress setting. We think they capture those furry occupational hazards with feeling and a bit of humor.
