PEMBERVILLE - The home of a village man facing charges in the shooting of a dog in the presence of its owner's children was reported egged this weekend.
Christopher Zimmerman, 64, is next scheduled to appear in Bowling Green Municipal Court Oct. 2 at 1:30 p.m. on charges of injuring an animal, inducing panic and pointing and discharging firearms.
According to the Wood County Sheriff's Office, the egging incident, in the 100 block of East College Avenue, was reported just after 7 a.m. Sunday.
The house had eggs and "also possible pumpkins thrown at it," according to an initial call.
Pemberville Police reported that on Sept. 8, Zimmerman admitted to shooting and killing a 6-month old mixed-breed dog, named Puppy, after it ran onto his property. Zimmerman claimed the dog had approached him with hackles raised "like it was going to attack him." The dog's owner and Zimmerman's next-door neighbor, Martin Smith, contested the claim.
One of Smith's juvenile sons was less than 15 feet away from Zimmerman when he shot the dog, according to the police report.
