The owner of the chimpanzee that nearly killed a Connecticut woman will have $10 million of assets frozen – in response to the victim’s lawsuit.
Charla Nash and her family filed a $50 million lawsuit against Sandra Herold, the owner of Travis, the 200-pound chimpanzee that mauled Nash on February 16. Nash reportedly lost her lips, nose, eyelids, hands and suffered brain damage. She will have to undergo years of surgical procedures, none of which come cheap.
Travis, the chimp, was shot to death by Stamford Police when they responded to a frantic 9-1-1 call.
