Rooster Attack Leads to $20,000 Settlement on Long Island

The family of a girl who was injured by the bird on a trip to the petting zoo brought the suit.

A Long Island town agreed to a $20,000 settlement with the family of a girl who was injured by a rooster at a petting zoo in town, CBS New York reports via Newsday.

Kaylie Weiss received lacerations on her face from a rooster at the petting zoo in Smithtown’s Hoyt Farm Nature Preserve in 2011.

A judge still needs to sign off on the settle, which was approved by the Smithtown Town Board Tuesday night.
