KALAMAZOO, Mich. - A man continues to recover from a dog attack two weeks later, and police are still looking for the owner of the dog that was responsible.

Ron Bardo was on a bike ride a couple of blocks from his home when he was knocked over and attacked by what witnesses described as a medium-sized brown and white pitbull with a spiked collar.  Kalamazoo Public Safety officers responded, rescuing Bardo and shooting and killing the dog.

Bardo is undergoing physical therapy, but doctors say they don't expect him to have full use of his arm for another two months, if at all.  Bardo says he's just glad to be alive, but is disappointed that no one has come forward to take responsibility and claim it was their dog.

If you know anything about the dog that attacked Bardo, call Kalamazoo Public Safety at 269-337-8120.

    While he may be disappointed, one should certainly hope he is not surprised.
    It’s important to keep in mind that his life doesn’t really matter in the eyes of whoever trained that dog to attack.
    Only certain lives matter these days…

    This is why we need BSL. Bully bred owners are notorious for have intact, not registered, not micro-chipped, not vaccinated dogs. Even if they find the owner he wont be able to pay it or own anything of value to put a lien on. That is the majority.
