Two Bound Over for Trial for Letting Dog Attack Young Man

Two men suspected of stringing an 18-year-old man up like a deer while he was savagely mauled by a dog have been bound over for trial in Fond du Lac County Court. Judge Richard Nuss Friday morning bound 58-year-old Richard Lisko of Campbellsport and 43-year-old Joel Kennedy Sr. of New Berlin over for trial during a preliminary hearing. Kennedy’s son was attacked by the dog after Lisko allegedly gave orders to the dog in German or another language. Lisko believed the youth had stolen 110 morphine pills from him. Sheriff’s Deputy “Pete” Vergos testified Kennedy knew what was going on when the dog attacked his son and allowed it to happen. Judge Nuss said Kennedy’s role in the dog’s attack was deplorable. He also denied motions to reduce Lisko’s $100,000 and Kennedy’s $50,000 cash bonds. The incident happened at Lisko’s farm in the Town of Osceola on August 31st.
