Lawsuit involving young girl being bitten during animal show reaches a settlement

Posted by wlpo on February 25, 2016

Remember when a young girl was bit by a hybrid wolf that was part of an animal show at Grand Bear Lodge? The parties involved have settled a lawsuit.

According to the NewsTribune, Tom and Rhonda Giachetto of Ladd were awarded $200,000 in an agreement reached Tuesday with Sidney Yost, owner of Amazing Animal Productions. Judge Troy Holland oversaw the settlement.

The Giachetto’s two-year-old daughter was bit by a wolf that lunged through a curtain to attack the girl. The wolf was put down while the girl was eventually treated and released from Illinois Valley Community Hospital in Peru.
