EAGLE, Colo. (AP) – Lawyers for a woman attacked by two sheep dogs during a Colorado mountain bike race say they’ve settled a lawsuit against the dogs’ owners for $1 million.
Renee Legro was mauled by two Great Pyrenees dogs while riding her bike at Camp Hale, a former Army training camp in Eagle County, in 2008. Sheep rancher Sam Robinson, who pastured sheep on surrounding national forest land, was twice convicted of owning a dangerous dog, a misdemeanor, but Legro and her husband also sued Robinson and his wife.READ MORE: Denver Deputy Quits Over Vaccine Mandate, Says It 'Was The Last Straw'
