Six-figure settlement reached in Fresno dog mauling
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- The family of a 12-year-old boy who was mauled by a neighbor's two dogs, has settled a lawsuit against the neighbors.
The family claimed the boy had jumped a fence to retrieve a ball in the neighbor's yard when the two English Bull Terriers attacked. The boy was severely scarred on his face.
A judge must still approve the settlement, and the amount is confidential, but Action News has learned the settlement is somewhere in the six-figure range.
A few months after the boy was attacked, a maid was hospitalized and claimed the dogs had also attacked her. She's still suing the dog's owners.
