      Bradley, IL

Dick is claiming self defense against the dog he shot, however the dog was carrying a tennis ball at the time of the shooting, and he would not be in attack mode while playing. Dick also claims the dog has been aggressive with him since 2 summers ago, when the dog "Coal" was only 1.5 years old at the time of the shooing. Dick was carrying a handgun with him, while operating a vehicle, in a NO conceal and carry state. He is repeatedly breaking the law, and has admitted to the crime, the authorities need to take action, there must be a punishment for what has been done to Coal. Dick Panozzo is a local business owner, of Country Fruit Market, and Dick's Asphalt, do not patron these businesses to also let him know, we the community will not stand for this.

      He is an unpunished felony! His actions speak volumes on his character.

      I am Dick Panozzo. I am 73 years old. I have lived in my home on River Road since 1972, I raised my two daughters there and enjoyed my 2 acres for most of my life.

      YOU are right! the dog did not deserver to die. It was just doing what dogs do in protecting what he percieved as his property. Problem is, it was not trained to stay in it's own space. The owners were told numerous times (Reported to and told by Kankakee County Animal Control and Sheriffs Deputy) to restrain their animals in some fashion. I have taken the blame by myself long enough. I didn't want to point a finger at the sad owners, but it is time for them to shoulder their irresposible lack of judgement and guilt. The owers knew the dog came after me several times while I was on my own property. They knew I was afraid of it for the last year and a half.

      You have been

      mis-informed regarding the tennis ball and carrying the gun in a car.

      No laws were broken.

      I can only imagine the injuries I may have suffered if the dog had gotten to me. as there was no one within five hundred feet to help stop the attack.

      Thanks for reading. Please feel free to contact me.
